  1. Heath was a good boy from a good family. I hate to see this. Drug addiction should be treated for what it is, a medical condition, instead of a criminal one. I hope his family can get him into a treatment center if they have the money. Good luck to you, bud.

  2. I totally agree with you. People who have never suffered the problem of drug addiction have no idea the guilt, remorse, sickness and overall lack of empathy that “addicts” need to overcome this disease that not only is physical but realistically the reason for inherited genes that will grow as long as you feed it. How do we as human, know when to medicate or rehabilitate as a child grows? Please help these people before they become self destructive drug inducing machines. Where is the love and the hope and help for these people? Behind bars???? NO!!!! WE ARE ALL HUMAN
