A flood of heroin?

I have heard in a few news report that the UK going to have a 'flood of heroin' with an increase of "thousands of tones of heroin"

This set me thinking, what the fuck would we do with that much more heroin?
Lets look at the figures.

2000 tones (min amount for "1000's) = 2,000,000 kg

2,000,000kg = 2,000,000,000g

Working on 52 million people in the UK thats 38.46g for every man, woman and child EXTRA!

Also this is working on the basis that dealers dont cut the heroin at all.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    ah, but maybe there would be a steady flow of it coming over during the next year if you get me. and the figures they put in nespapers are very often wrong. oh, and ive always wondered, is heroin a seed bearing herb? that would defeat the concept of genisis 1:12

    it is indeed a seed bearing plant. it is also the best pain killer going with the best side effects. much nicer side effects than man made..much nicer than heroin. would god not provide pleasant pain killers ? takes a while to get physicaly addicted. maybe what is wrong is the mass cultivation for commercial gain ?

    "genisis 1:12 - i have given you all the seed bearing plants and herbs to use"
    well heroin isnt that bad in small doses e.g for operations, so i suppose it could be good in a sense. weed also being a seed bearing herb and a painkiller, are any of the other seed bearing herbs painkillers?

    Heroin itself isnt a seed bearing herb (heroin was originally a brand name). the opium poppy is. heroin is quite a heavily processed derivative As far as i know. most drugs derive from something natural originally, cocaine derives from the coca plant of south america, LSD originally was derived from a mould (except now its synthesised), Alcohol is just rotten vegetable water, natural does not always equal good and healthy. in fact its the natural stuff that can often be more potent.

    Ya, Heroin isn't natural, its the opium thats natural. Heroin is crude opium mixed and heated with various chemicals, and through the stages of getting to heroin, you get morphine, codine, and some other drug i forget the name of. Heroin is man made.

    Does it say how much of those 2K tonnes were for consumption in this country, and how much was for redistribution throughout europe?

    I think that's what you need to take into account, to make your maths work a little better.

    raidbow / shouty metal head : I would still say that natural drugs are better than synthisised, if not for effect, then for general wellbeing.

    I'd rather take coke than speed, opium than herion and peyote (or salvia, or mushrooms) than LSD.

    I also know which of the above has the worse comedown / after effects.

    Hmmm, coke, that really natural drug? I'm not sure how much you know about how its made but it does envolve some nasty solvents.
    That and theres a significant chance that the coke that you've hovering up has passed though some mules body before getting to you. A nice thought I'm sure you'll aggree.

    Opiums not really a natural drug either, I mean you have to force the poppy to 'bleed' and then it is normaly processed a bit before smoking. Raw opium direct from the poppy isnt a great smoke. That and your never ever going to find it outside of the growing areas of the world.

    I'd aggree with you about the shrooms/lsd argument though.
