What's the differance between a syringe and a needle? And why aren't we calling it an accidental overdose like we do with all our favorite celebs?

Addiction is an ugly disease and it doesn't discriminate. It has to be the hardest thing to say goodbye to one of your children.

47 syringes and 65 needles? I dont know who these people are but that kind of seems like he was being framed or something? I dont do drugs but wouldnt you think a druggie would only have 1 or 3 syringes on them? This seems suspicious.

That's really sad. He must have had some real demons to start with that.

So sad of a day for their family. What a terrible addiction. I cannot imagine that world they live in. The concept of not living reality is beyond me. Life is to valuable to waste not to mention short. RIP and bless this family with happiness.

Most kids who try herion say they were instantly addicted. There is hundreds of herion over doses
we never hear of. It is the worst street drug to
get off of. However there is rehab and hospitals that well put you into a coma while you detox from it.
They say they are cracking down on it but its hard to track. The schools need more eraly education and prevention beaucse this drug is killing off
youth at an alarming rate.
The familys of those addicted go threw alot of pain.
Its a sad waste of life but at least he is at peace now. mybe legalizing pot would help stop herion use. herion got popular beaucse pot
got expsnsive.
gods speed to his family,
