Why should taxpayers be forced to rescue people from their own bad decisions?
In the April 27 edition of The Sun there was a story by Kevin Rector about recently passed legislation to allow home prescriptions of Naloxone that could be administered to users of heroin who have overdosed ("Maryland families to get new tool in fight against drug overdoses"). In the article it was reported that the program will cost $50,000 in the next fiscal year and will increase over time. Why is it that every time someone makes a poor life decision, in this case using heroin, the remainder of society bears the burden for that poor decision?
