Hallucinating Away Heroin Addiction

Posted: Updated:

I hesitated passing along this piece— as well written as it is—because I just don’t know if it’s the real deal or another quick and temporary fix to what has become the nation’s scariest addiction nightmare; Heroin. Then I decided that any discussion about this epidemic is a good one.

There are many new stats emerging about heroin. Some of the numbers are in this story by Abby Haglage. But I implore you—just believe that this drug will touch your neighborhood, your friends, your family; and probably very soon if we don’t get angry and determined to fight it.

There have been some recent advances in drugs to combat heroin addiction—Suboxone, Naloxone but this is different and unorthodox. But, in the interest of opening up discussion and awareness, try to at least give this a quick read, then feel free to tweet me (@jeffmichaelnews) or email me (Jeff.michael@foxtv.com).

    It's no secret that Microsoft has struggled in the hardware department so I can't say whether the Surface Pro 3 will be the hero Microsoft needs but I can say it is the modern computing experience users deserve. I love it and think you should too! Read on to find out why.
