Get high and die

I recently read an article on MSNBC that discussed a new wave of heroin being smuggled into America by Mexicans.  It’s pure, it’s potent, it’s deadly.  Some users can’t even experience a high before the police find them flat on the floor with the needle still stuck in their veins.  Others are found by straws through which they snorted the drug, one of the perks that attracts certain users.  For those that are scared of needles or those that simply don’t want to look like they shoot up, they can snort or smoke the high-potent heroin and still obtain the desired effects.

Another attractive feature of the deadly drug is its price.  You can purchase a bag for a mere $10.  The dealers start low to hook as many people as they can because they know that once they’ve got ’em hooked, they’ll keep coming back, no matter what the price.  If they’re still alive, that is…

    I thought that this was a very interesting article and what really shocked me was the actual price on the purchasing of heroin. One thing that I dont understand is how someone can get heroin for so cheap. It is sad to see that someone can get something so addicting for so cheap. I feel that there must be a stop brought to the smuggling of this powerful drug and that people should be put in jail for such behavior. Obviously there is choice involved but to sell it for so cheap come on now anyone else agree on that one?

    I read that article too and it is so scary that it is so potent that you can be addicted right from the start, even actually killing you with the first try. I always share these articles with my 11-year-old son so he will know how dangerous drugs are and to never even try them at all.

    It is amazing to me what people will do to get high. I believe we all have addictive behaviors it just depends on what outlet we use to control them some do drugs others use exercise or food. I feel so sad that people are using such potent drugs. The part where they said the needle was still in the arm! Thats CRAZY! Man we definately need to look at this as a public health problem

    I had no idea it was so inexpensive to buy heroin. How exactly does someone get unaddicted to this powerful drug?

    It blows my mind that someone would risk their lives for a high that would only last a few hours. Not only that, but that they would continue, knowing each time that that might be the time they don’t make it. What is it that brings people to this?

    First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
