We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week...heroin users. Yes, heroin users.
Now, while we realize that drug addiction is a disease and isn't an easy thing to kick...you people are doing more and more heroin. Heroin!
From 2000 to 2007, our state averaged 29 overdose deaths related to heroin use.
in 2012, we had 93...and last year, there were 199 deaths from heroin in Wisconsin. 199 of our people OD'ed on horse, junk, black tar, smack.
Whatever you call it, that is just plain stupid.
So, for ignoring the heroin lessons our nation learned through the 60's and 70's, when drug-related crimes skyrocketed, children had to play in needle littered parks and entire neighborhoods ended up as mere shells of themselves...you know, kind of like what Detroit looks like now.
For thinking that it's a good idea to use heroin to catch a buzz...when these days you can get your hands on all kinds of high grade and realtively harmless marijuana...all for the price of a bus ticket to Colorado..
And for apparently never watching TV, listening to a radio or reading news on the internet because they're so busy jamming needles in their arms that they missed the news about all the celebrity ODs...and for never watching that scene in that olne movie which shows what happens when you do too much heroin...you get recklessly driven to an apartment where the guy who played the deformed kid in Mask has to ram an adreleline shot right through your breastplate.
I mean, really, people? Heroin? Let me put it to you this way...Philip Seymour C'mon, man!
We are, truth be told, not so proud to name area heroin users as this week's Rick and Len Show Weenies of the Week.
