Lakin's curator insight, May 14, 2014 12:46 PM

This is related to government and law because it is involving drugs and the law enforcement. Law enforcements want to start buying heroin antitode because it help or prevent a overdose. Many law enforcements are for this. Will this affect more people abusing heroin since law enforcement is for this?

 

Reed Klunder 's comment, May 15, 2014 3:58 PM
I do agree that the law enforcement should go for this because heroin takes awhile to get out of the system. They don't want these criminals doped up on heroin while they are in prison. They want to get it out of their system as soon as possible so they can act like a normal human being, the officers don't want to deal with mindless people.
