tannin, the authorities have not issued a final report about the assault nor about Henry's death. It is not even clear whether he took methadone of his own accord or someone gave it to him to ease his pain, so your conclusion about this being "a simple drug overdose" is premature at best. His medical records show jaw and skull fractures. A concussion can have serious impacts that manifest hours or days after the injury, but we will likely never be able to tease apart brain injuries from the assault versus those suffered during the overdose.
The important thing is that there are dangers inherent in drug use and dangers inherent in illegal activities. Those we can tease apart. Much of the violence associated with drugs is a consequence of prohibition, not the drug itself. Stricter laws will just exacerbate that violence. We saw this with alcohol prohibition, and we can see it around us now. Your approach has been in effect for decades, and it has cost a lot of money and a lot of lives.
