What is not safe - and what Americans and everyone else should stay away from - is drugs. Can we really blame PR for every junky's death? Damn racists.

Wow, this reminds me so much of the recent Hawaii 5-0 episode where the surfer died and they did the same type of tribute for him in the episode. RIP to Andy Irons and my condolences to his family.

He did not die because of Puerto Rico, or Dengue Fever he die because of his drug abuse!
