Sources say that the price of heroin in San Francisco has dropped ~90% in the past two years. In this recording I speak about why I think DA Chesa Boudin’s policies on No Cash Bail likely acted as a catalyst to bring down the price of drugs and consequently fuel the illegal drug market. It is based on this thread I wrote on Twitter.

Would love to know what you think. Please leave a comment below.
