Working to keep smoking as dangerous as possible…

From the New York Times (The Needle Nexus)….

Moscow’s drug policy could be called harm augmentation: discourage drug use by making it as dangerous as possible. Arseniy and David, for example, can’t direct addicts to methadone clinics, since methadone — the global gold standard rehabilitation method — is illegal in Russia

Kind of sounds like North American tobacco policy…

Tip of the hat to CVP for bringing this article to my attention.
