maybe it will thin out the drug users and there will be less welfare cases.

Most people on welfare are middle-classed, white and over the age of 60.....not quite the heroin demographic.

The lineup at any Methadone Treatment Clinic appears to be mostly white people of all ages.

@frank and judy.... Are u serious? Majority of heroin users are white ,some of the people that live in nice homes, drive luxury cars and are considered to be "model citizens" are the big buyers of heroin. Crack cocaine has more of a hold on the black community than heroin does. Smh, the racist things people say never surprises me anymore. White people are the main ones who you see strung out on heroin, that's why you see upper class white men and women stopping thru "the ghetto" so that they can purchase their drugs. More blacks sell heroin then use it and just think its one of the most expensive street drugs on the market.
