    Wake up all of you holier than thou judgmental crones. While I do not condone what this man did addiction is a disease and a poorly treated one at that especially in this area. Until you see addiction staring at you through the eyes of a loved one you should keep your mouths shut

    This poor guy. Obviously he had no control over his craving to get high. We live in a terrible system and it’s only getting worse.
