PickeringPost: I have to admit to misspending at least some of my youth. My friends were no angels. Many of them smoked pot. The more adventurous ones would occasionally take some speed or LSD. I wouldn’t describe it as “harmless” fun but, with a few notable exceptions, it was mostly under some sort of control.
Heroin was different. Everyone knew it was a potential death sentence. At least I thought they did. I remember very clearly when the heroin epidemic arrived in England. It was Christmas 1982.
Suddenly it was everywhere.
At first it was just the crazies. MORE
