The population of addicts is like the population of deer.

It is highest in rustic places with access to urban supplies.
Missouri’s heroin problem is worst in the rural counties near St. Louis. New Hampshire’s is worst in the small cities and towns an hour or so away from the drug markets of Massachusetts: Lawrence, Lowell, and Boston..... The implicit accusation is that only now that whites are involved have racist authorities been roused to act. This is false in two ways. First, authorities have not been roused to act. Second, when they do, they will have epidemiological, and not just tribal, grounds for doing so. A plague afflicting an entire country, across ethnic groups, is by definition more devastating than a plague afflicting only part of it.

Your Say

One more thing the Boomers have to answer for.

I'm a *boomer* and I'll answer only for myself.

The whole *drug culture* is one more epidemic this rotten assed gov't has created. People have always been attracted to things that they shouldn't but only those things the gov't spotlight's get the attention.

When a punk kicks your door in at 3 am to steal your stuff do you really give a shit what he's planning to do with the proceeds? "Oh, but Mr Ghost, if the hapless soul was not addicted to krak he wouldn't be kicking my door in!"

Hapless soul indeed. As if doors weren't kicked in before the gov't pedestalled the druggists.

If you are an individualist you will take responsibility for your entire life and dust that asshole post haste and care not of the emotionalism.
