  •  Another aristocratc white cocaine addict: (3+ / 0-)

    Halstead, the famous Johns Hopkins surgeon who created the Halstead mastectomy for breast cancer.

    We view poor addicts as throwaway people, and it's just wrong.  Snort cocaine, you go to rehab and are welcomed back with open arms-- shoot up with heroin and you're  garbage. It tells us more about the bigotry than about the reasons people use drugs in the first place.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
