@Maria - Thanks for the link. I know it's a far more complicated than it sounds. What causes addiction is still a big mystery. However, I still stand to the point that if we know what is right from wrong, the choice we make is still our choice, unless we are coerced to.
I'm sure people will understand I had plenty of reasons to succumb - but I never did and never will... Perhaps, knowing that the consequence might be tragic, it makes those reasons unreasonable.

RIP. You were a great actor.
I heard this many times before, "Save the user, Jail the pusher." However, I think we are the captain of our ships. As the late Dr. Covey taught us, we have the power to choose. Why do drugs? Money? Fame? But, there are rich and famous who don't do drugs? In the end, it comes down to us.

In another news, Yasiel Puig's reckless driving charge in Florida was dropped.
These two should hang out. In the desert so that they will not endanger other people's lives.

Japanese government doesn't tell the US what to do or not to do so they shouldn't tell us either. And they can start a war whenever they feel like but a Japanese PM can't visit a shrine ? yeah, that sounds logical
I'm sure you are aware why Asian neighbors got pissed when a Japanese PM visits Yasukuni. Needless to say, it is not an 'ordinary' shrine.
Executed Class A war criminal Hideki Tojo was enshrined there. Last time I checked, fourteen Class A war criminals were enshrined in Yasukuni.
