R.I.P. Corey Haim

I respect his attempts to get clean.  Corey died March 10th.  There is a  long list of celebrities who have been beaten by addiction and it’s mostly opiate based prescription drugs and heroin that are doing the killing.  An issue relating more to the disease of addiction than Corey, is generating a lot of hot questions about a big problem. Celebrity addicts underscore the deadly threat “legal prescription opiates” have on young people.  Attention is falling on the plague of doctor shopping, the prescription drug black market and a massive prescription drug ring. So Corey’s death, brings attention to a problem that in part is the 4th largest cause of death now. links by Mary S. and dadonfire.
