Really? Legal heroin can save our lives?

I always find it odd and heartbreaking when our culture asserts that more control or better circumstances “shoulda-coulda-woulda” saved us. Our modern world always assumes more legislation, more education, more technology, more information can always save us. It can certainly help and alleviate our suffering. But this approach only ever deals with the external, never the internal issue. 

In the late Philip Seymour-Hoffman’s death, legal, regulated heroin might have postponed his death; we may all cheat death from time to time. But nothing on earth can save us from what causes addiction in the first place–the human heart.
