Heroin is an extremely dangerous drug that should be banned. Not only is it very harmful, it is also much easier to enforce a ban on these sorts of drugs, as they cannot be grown anywhere and often have to be imported.
I'm not so sure how I feel about decriminalization of all drugs. If Heroin really can be effectively banned and kept off the streets, then I'm all for it.
If we ever get a sensible policy on the less harmful drugs and it can be shown that more concentrated police efforts alongside credible drug education can do the trick, then making it legal would be indefensible.
