Position Desired: JUNKIE

Another model-booster-junkie friend is going back to prison – again. For a year – or more. Violated her probation – peed ‘dirty’ – can’t keep off drugs. Too bad, right? Right. Today she’s hating herself more than ever. She’s too humiliated to tell her family but, of course, they’ll know pretty soon. What’s a word beyond ‘humiliation’? Devastation? She’s devastated that her two-year old son will learn someday that his Mommy is a JUNKIE – from the flapping tongue of a relative or “friend”. I’ll bet the first time he hears it, he’ll be too young to know what it means. That’s OK – he’ll learn fast enough.

It won’t even matter if she breaks her needle avocation. Unless you’re someone who has the money and talent of someone like a Britney or Lindsay – and she doesn’t – you’re going to wear the red-letter ‘A’ – Addict – FOREVER.  “Once a Junkie, always a Junkie.” And if you ever kick it and try your best to be a good Mom, there certainly will be enough hateful stares at the PTA meeting and church to make you feel ashamed. Kid overnights? Not at your house, honey. You’d probably drag out the starter needles sometime between cupcakes and Twister.

Well, she did it to herself, right? Right – no denying that. And of course she should be punished, right? Of course. But she’s taking down some good people too.

Like her son and her family? Oh sure – but someone more important.

Herself? Noooo. She did it. She’s just a junkie – they’re not worth much.

Then who?

YOU, dumbass! And me – and every single American who’s ever paid a dime in taxes.

Christian punishment doesn’t come cheap, you know. Thousands and thousands of dollars have been spent to investigate this one junkie – to pee test her,  put her through Drug Court, Willard Drug Rehab, local drug rehabs, drug and mental health treatment progams, Wayne County Jail, Monroe County Jail, Ontario County Jail, and vocational rehabilitation programs. Money to fill the streets with Zero Tolerance cops and overtime, to pay all the counselors, correction officers, court officers, public defenders, parole boards and border patrols. And, the most expensive items? All the crimes she’s committed against us for her drug money and future ‘entitlement’ programs.

I’ll bet I could document a case that this one junkie has cost taxpayers over $1,000,000 in the past 8-years. Now multiply that by millions of junkies with a failure rate of over 90%.

The answer? Legalize heroin and give it to anyone with a doctor’s prescription. A government dose would cost less than 50-cents. Crime and disease would plummet.  Fewer families would be devastated.

Wouldn’t she take too much and kill herself? Not my problem, man.  As it stands today, it IS my problem – and yours too.

    Drugs in general should be legalized, but it’s not going to happen.

    In a nation teeming with evolution denying fundamentalists, there are votes to be had from anti-drug hysteria. If we won’t give heroin to a person dying in agony from cancer, we sure as hell aren’t going to permit its recreational use. Also. prisons and rehab centers provide lots of jobs that, in effect, buy votes. Just ask the good people of Willard who bemoaned the closing of Willard Psychiatric Center and rejoiced when the facility was reborn in its current form.

    You are asking Americans to use common sense. No chance, Paolo.

    I know, Bill. I just like to push hypocrites in front of a mirror every now and then. Pushing them down stairs is against the law.

    Your argument makes sense on paper. Thirty years ago a physician appeared on William F. Buckley’s “Firing Line” and said pretty much the same thing you are saying. He was viewed as a nut case. The fear or implied resistance back then, conveyed by Buckley, was, “If you make drugs legal, easy and cheap, everyone will wind up on drugs.”

    In 1964, Buckley also said the Beatles wouldn’t last a year. I think of the last ‘cool’ party to which I went (OK. This was years ago.) – people drinking and a few joints going around. If someone brought out a pile of needles and said, “Hey everybody. Heroin is legal now! Who wants to try shooting up?”, I’m sure we would have looked at that person in horror! Who wants to be a junkie?

  5. In the 1800’s all drugs were legal, after the civil war laudanum and morphine could be bought in the corner drugstore. In Michael Landons LITTLE HO– USE ON THE PRARIE a returning Vet shamed his mother by taking Morphine. Landon used a post Civil War setting to send a1970’s message, call it poetic license. But it was far far from the truth. Today liquor is legal and if a womans husband drinks too much her freinds may feel bad fo her but That alone doesn’t make anyone a “Bad” person. It’s legal. And in the 1800’s people felt the same way about Morphine addicts and their families after the Civil war, until the 1880’s cocaine epidemic started killing people. It was just a medicine, it was cheap, nobody had to steal to get it and the addicts could just tell their kids not to do what they did it was hard on them physicly andsay it openly without having to get divorced. It didn’t break up families. In the 1930’s harry Anslinger needed government job durring the depression. He made a bunch of stupid movies like REEFER MADNESS, filling our grandparents and their parents heads full of misconceptions that stick to this day. The DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION (DEA) puts out a monthly newsletter with a picture of THE NARC OF THE MONTH on the back receiving THE HARRY ANSLINGER AWARD. We say we can’t legalise because we have treaties with over 40 other countries on the subject. They signed their laws and the treaties after being co-erced by HARRY ANSLINGER. Do you really thing Ben Franklin used to like to get naked and sit by the window taking air bath’s in Boston without having drank some Herb tea made from the tops of one of his rope making plantation owner pals like George Washington?
