Hell, lets taint all the drugs and rid society of the burden of addicts! 50 bucks says crime would drop and after awhile your percentage of addicts in the area would drop!
Kind of extreme but sometimes good old fashioned fear can straighten people out!
your a ignorant fool! Grow a pair of nuts and help the community instead of ridding "the problem" you coward

I am Sorry about your friend and sorry I didn't see this for month.....but I was struck by your comment that you weren't sure if it was bad heroin or an overdose. I just want to tell you what I have told my kids ...ALL HEROiN IS BAD HEROIN...and HEROIN causes OVERDOSES!! Please know that if you ever need a person just to talk that has lost a friend at an early age, I have lost a young nephew to suicide and an older cousin also to the fact he could no longer deal with facing his demons and suicide was what he thought was his only option. so...if you need a private place to grieve....because grieving isn't over after the can take months, years....I will gladly welcome you into my home for a friendly year. Just look me up on Facebook..Karen CooperOkazaki
