Welp, another old friend just died a day ago from what appears to be a heroin overdose. I know four people so far who have died in the last few years, two used to be close friends. Another friend of mine who ran in those circles says he knows 10 who have died in the last year. After the government made Oxycontin harder to use (the pills are now uncrushable and laced with garbage), people switched to using heroin, which could be bought for something like 1/8th the price, and now they're dropping like flies. As this article notes, the deaths year over year are going up around %50, if this was Ebola killing people there would be widespread panic, because it's government prohibition killing people it barely hits the radar. Of course, the government's reaction is mostly more prohibition, as well as a few band-aids to treat the problem their prohibition has created, but there's no calls to end the war on drugs so people can get safer drugs from pharmaceutical companies in regulated doses, which mind you when it comes to opiates, they're used in our nation's hospitals in massive amounts every day entirely legally. - Chris, InfoLib

He also claimed Adams reached into the cab of his pickup, presumably to grab a weapon, and that's when he opened fire.

I guess if you're going to engage in a stupid, neverending "war," the most honest way to approach it is stupidly.
