    Anyone caught with amounts of heroin that are obviously for sale and distribution should be killed. Not sure why some hallucinogen is drugs carry life sentences yet heroin doesnt. Take the mushrooms and the acid and the pot and make the shit legal, use your “war on drugs” budget to actually combat a dangerous deadly drug.
