Oslo: The overdose capital of Europe

“Yes, we love this country.” So begin the lyrics of the Norwegian national anthem. As someone who is addicted to drugs, though, I have not felt much of this love from my country for as long as I can remember.My government has harassed, punished and chased me and the likes of me since we adopted the American War on Drugs nearly 50 years ago. During the last five years alone, the weakest and most isolated patient group in the country—people who use illegal drugs—have been fined for the total amount of 48 million Norwegian Kroner, something like $6 million, in Bergen and Oslo alone. People have been arrested for use and possession, and had their lives worsened and destroyed by a punitive regime in the name of good morals and policy.But not any more—if we to believe today’s statement by Bent Høie http://theinfluence.org/the-dramatic-conversion-of-norways-health-minister-to-drug-policy-reform-gives-all-of-us-drug-users-cause-to-celebrat Radka Toneff (R.I.P.): https://youtube/XtgIxU8TCyY
