Your reaction to the latest story about deadly discount drugs will no doubt be anger and frustration. What you think we as a society should do about the situation will probably be no different than what you think we should do about other kinds of illegal street drugs – if you think we should decriminalize them like the Dutch, give them away like the Swiss, educate until we’re blue in the face like the Brits, allocate more resources to interdiction like the Thais, or increase penalties for possession and use to draconian levels like the Malaysians, this will simply reinforce the need for whatever policy you prefer to be enacted.
