Im so sick of everyone making it seem like these addicts are the victims because of their "disease." Nobody put the pill in the mouth or the needle in their arm the first time they did it. I understand addiction and have dealt with it with friends. Its not something I feel sympathy towards. These people made their beds and now have to lay in it. I shouldnt worry about leaving my wife alone because some crackhead might break in. Addicts did this to themselves, they werent born addicts.

I think Jake is high right now, not making much sense, in this day and age we have been educated to death about addiction, most addicts have a co occurring mental illnesses and we need to take the stigma away from that too, and we need to get to the deeper root, this new wave of rx addiction, greed! The big pharmaceutical CEO s are not addicts
