Reiner 4 Neuroethics 65 Neuroscience has substantially advanced the understanding of how changes in brain biochemistry contribute to mechanisms of tolerance and physical dependence via exposure to addictive drugs. Promoting a brain disease concept is grounded in beneficent and utilitarian thinking: However such claims may yield unintended consequences by fostering discrimination commonly associated with pathology.

Deiseach January 18, at 3: Was he intensely stupid? Yes and I say that even if it was cocaine or something else he bought. Did he deserve to die? The outcry would be massive and the upheaval more than any elected or other representative would want to touch.
Tekhno January 18, at 4: The kid died because people were selling the drug with no such information in place, meaning that fraud would be occurring under a new system. A warning message was issued by doctors after the fact, and did not come as part of the drug transaction as part of a legal regime.
This is more a failure of enforcement.
Ultimately, at what point are we okay with people having control of their own life and death and taking risks with the knowledge of possible death in mind?
But just how many fences do you need to add around something before we accept that someone chose the outcome? It all seems to be all or nothing.
It would have to be sold through regular channels and subject to the warning information and discouragement tax scheme.
Most people would rather trust some authority to decide what drugs are okay, and it would be a ballsy or desperate minority who would decide to go down this avenue.

It would probably be a good idea to make those consistent at some point anyway. People treat these two things differently, and rightly so.
A great many brilliant and wonderful people could tragically die of poverty due to bad circumstances, whereas no one of benefit to humanity wrapped a cape around their neck and tried to fly off the grand canyon.
No one sheds tears for Darwin Award winners. This is even more reason for the public to not completely shut down such a proposal versus the privatization proposals which already carry some weight. Most people are not utilitarians Me neither.
We all get to enjoy fast cars and be cheeky with the speed limits, because we categorize someone speeding on a straight motorway differently from some crazy loon overtaking on blind country bends at mph. Jiro January 18, at This is far different from nobody doing so.
I think people are far more willing to accept deaths that are due to fault The point is that people want separate efforts made to mitigate both kinds of deaths. The example of recreational research chemicals came up, and those are orders of magnitude cheaper than the drugs they imitate, even when ordered in relatively small quantities 1 g.
It seems like there could either be issues with patent trolls owning a bunch of Pharma IP with little invested effort maybe this already happens? Lots of conversations about FDA regulation focus solely on new drug approval because those costs are enormous, but there is also a lot of ongoing work to ensure quality control for the approved drugs.So far most of Trump’s appointments have been ordinary conservative hardliners or ethically-compromised rich people.
