Here is the problem: If I prepared a "documentary" on modern day heroin use in the US, and only included the statistic of number of addicts in the US- what have I "documented" that the US taxpayer hasn't already paid big bucks to be "documented", and couldn't look up in less than 30 seconds? Zip. With few exceptions, heroin use is ordinarily taken to mean humans administering to themselves. The key word: humans. One MIGHT want to add what humans are taking it and where, who is selling it, when it was made illegal, the punishment for user and seller, the purity, etc., etc., etc.,. Otherwise, you might as well do a "documentary" on how many grains of sand, size unspecified, are in a cc.
Same thing w guns - regardless of what country it is you are discussing. I am taking a wild guess here....Moore didn't look south in his "documentary"??
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
