on the darker side there've been at least 3 people I've personally known around here who've OD'd and died on heroin...and at least 50 that I didn't know in the last 4 years.
In not even the past yr I've known 6 ppl who passed from heroin, one happened a few weeks ago... I'm from NY where its a culture, every1, even ppl you think be on a good path are doing it... I get into f!ghts & arguments with old friends bc i be getting so paranoid when i see one little thing wrong, a lot of ppl aren't open about injecting... these heroin dealers out where I'm from be making 10-15 million a yr just off a population of about 3.5 million (L.I.), its crazy how many ppl taking it as their drug of choice... haven't seen anyone ever drink lean up here (no surprise)
