Ohio will become the Black Tar Capital. So what if it takes a few minutes longer to hook up a heroine rig rather than swallow a few pills. At least with the pills, the abusers have a better idea of what won't kill them.

Anybody ever seen someone nodding off in the corner over a heroine injection? I stood CQ one night - opened a door - three guys, one needle. The last one was gone before he got the needle out of his arm.

If you think it's bad now, you'll wish we still had pill mills.

Glad to hear POS people are helping to weed themselves out. I would still be armed to the teeth if I lived in Ohio though.
