Drug conversation, a flash fiction story

There are two guys sitting on a bench dressed in jeans. One in a polo, one in a sweater. Both matching and stylish. They look about late teens, early twenties. They are discussing the pros and cons of drug use. One says that people are always going to use drugs, illegal or not. They will find a way. We will call him Jim. The other says that drugs are illegal for a reason. We will call him Bill. The
reason is that they are harmful to people. Even the prescription drugs have to be monitored so that they don’t hurt. Jim says that if you use heroin with no mix you could live a long time and feel good so why not let it be for all who want. Then Bill says I guess you believe in mass suicide too!
