"Oh my god I just remembered, I’m a drug user and as such I don’t have the right to have an opinion on current events! After all, it’s not like any important or influential people ever used drugs and still went on to accomplish positive things…
Ulysses S. Grant
There is a difference between a user and an addict. Even further, there is a difference between an addict and a junkie.
I get high everyday. I am addicted to heroin, my body physically needs it in order to be okay. That being said, I still go to school, work, hang out with friends, and live life. I just do it occasionally high. I don’t lie, cheat, or steal in order to afford my addiction and I am hurting literally no one with my actions. And by practicing safe injection protocol, it’s hardly even accurate to say I’m hurting myself.
I am no less of a person because I use drugs. If you think I am, that only goes to show your own ignorance and lack of an open fucking mind.”
as a drug addict, you are also a criminal. I am in no way devaluing you. As i said seek help & love yourself. What I am saying is that you are more guilty than Mike Brown was. Even if he had committed the crime they’re trying to (wrongly) connect to him, the fact that he turned around in surrender makes his MURDER wrong & completely UNJUSTIFIABLE (a point you tried, and failed, to make in your initial response). This is an issue. This is a race issue. This is a national issue. You are no less of a person because you are a heroin addict. He was no less of a person because he was black. Nonetheless, he was gunned down in the street worse than an animal and left on display. Any further questions, comment, or concerns?
