♥For Patricia and her Family♥ Friends way back when; friends then, friends forever.
You know; in today's society, I'd have gotten killed 100 times, (I was so dumb when I was a teenager).

Nothing changes, it just re-appears in different forms.

As long as there is poverty there will be crime.

Hungry children start out stealing food and wondering why they don't have what other people have.

It often escalates from there.

Criminality, is learned behavior. Just as being successful, is learned behavior.

According to the state Attorney General’s Office, there were 741 heroin-related deaths in New Jersey in 2013, a 160 percent increase since 2010..

Drugs are a big fake out. Used to keep people down and in economic bondage. "The rich get rich and the poor get poorer."

Unless, the poor are smart and upwardly mobile.

Drugs keep you back
when you're young (your productive years). If they don't hook you for life or kill you.

Drug Education should start to be taught in grammar school.

In the 1st, 2nd grades. Even on the most basic level; don't smoke cigarettes, don't drink alcohol, never take medicine unless a parent or doctor gives it to you, like that.

Increasing info with age. Until young people grow up; knowing that drugs, alcohol, tobacco, etc. are bad and kill.

Reverse the drug propaganda. Replace it with the truth and facts about drugs, alcohol and about violence too.

I was 17 in nineteen sixty-seven. I know drugs and alcohol!

I had numerous, near-death episodes with drugs and alcohol when I was a teenager and in my early twenties.  

Been there, decided to straighten out because I didn't want to die.

My Mother used to pray to St Jude (the Patron Saint of hopeless cases), for me everyday.  

She used to say that "God kept me alive, because he had a special purpose for me."

I write about drugs, etc, so people might understand what kinds of poison drugs and alcohol are and not put them in their bodies. So people could have a good life, instead of one of misery.

Heroin and prescription overdoses rise throughout NJ skyrocket in Ocean County by Star-Ledger Staff June 11 2013 NJ.com FB  
Stories like this make me nauseous.

60 fatal drug overdoses In Ocean County, New Jersey this year.

In 2010, a total of 38,329 fatal drug overdoses nationwide.

heroin

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Prescription Painkiller Overdoses

There is very little real cocaine or crack. It's  mostly a little cocaine so it tastes like it and a lot more pharmaceutical type amphetamine or even meth amphetamine (crystal meths drug effects). Rock form is so convenient for this. FYI Even real cocaine from the coca plant is distilled in kerosene . I wouldn't put that into my body!

Pharmaceutical amphetamine and the chemical formula of nearly all pharmaceutical pain killers, tranquilizers, etc, contain many toxic ingredients. Two examples are:
C9H13N hydrochloride.

Sulfate A REALLY BAD ACID! A type of Sulfur. In inorganic chemistry, a sulfate is a salt of sulfuric acid  

These salts and acids not only help to preserve the drugs they also help the user's body to eliminate the drug. Keeps even more people from overdosing. The salts eat up the opiate effects. Saline solutions are used a lot in medicine.

Over time; if the user doesn't overdose, these salts and acids destroy the body.

Street meth amphetamine/aka crystal meth, pharmaceutical amphetamine and pharmaceutical drugs, all drugs, in general, are extremely, corrosive to the body. You can't win with drugs.

They're Poison! Even patients who have to take them for pain, etc, hate them.

I know. I got hurt in 2000. Torn rotators cuff, neck and back injuries. The doctors tried every pain med there is.

I had severe reactions to them all. My skin turned bright red and burned, my hair fell out. True story.

Do You Really Want To Take The Chance Of Putting This Kind Of Poison In Your Body Even Once?

And Never Drink Alcohol when taking acetaminophen or prescription drugs containing it. It can burn your liver up, the first time. acetaminophen toxicity

Some of the ingredients used to make street meth (All those little home, laboratories).
Anhydrous Ammonia

Lacquer Thinner

Heet Gasoline Additive

Kitty Litter And some assorted, anything at all over the counter pharmaceutical drugs!

Oh man, am I really naive! I was upset when I thought they were just using pharmaceutical chemicals to make it! This is not a drug! It's Poison!

amphetamines and meth are two drugs that I personally; don't know too much about, except they totally destroy your body. They, will physically age your body thirty years beyond your chronological age! And it doesn't take long for this damage to occur.

Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA) (In California)

Often, the heroin is fake too
. A small amount of the drug mixed with anything else the dealer has.

Whatever the dealer wants to put in it, crushed up narcotic or non narcotic pain meds, tranquilizers, any kind of powder works, etc.

Besides taking the bogus heroin, cocaine and prescription pills, drug users out there are smoking pcp/phencyclidine, meth and not to forget the ones taking ecstasy.

So, I know they don't have a clue. 42 arrested at Atlantic City Phish shows. (LSD)

I went out once in the eighties with some people who were into this junk (heroin). the dope was very bad. It was definitely synthetic. So like every product; nowadays, it can only have gotten worse.

Cops don't even get it. The News keeps calling it a high grade heroin. Which I doubt.

Plus, all these users take pills and shoot or snort heroin or cocaine and also drink alcohol with it/when they can't get it. alcoholism  

That's some reasons, why there are so many overdoses.

Prescriptions are now the biggest cause of fatal drug overdoses, source: Liz Szabo, USAToday A nationwide system of electronic medical records

Although pharmaceutical drugs may have a place in medicine, ie pain, etc. They're basically just some harsh synthetically created chemical compounds. The dr's warn to use only as prescribed and often they also have severe side effects.

Never shoot pills! That can kill you instantly, one time! Never mix them with other drugs like heroin. Again one time, that's the end!

Pills kill fast and they can make a person crazy too.

Total havoc when they're mixed with alcohol and or other drugs!

Street drugs are definitely Just Some Chemical Junk, that somebody made up, in their basement.

Pharmaceutical drugs are definitely Just Some Chemical Junk, That Some Chemist Made Up In A Pharmaceutical Company's basement. Neither are made from natural substances.

Honky-Tonk Bud jailhouse poem

Honky-Tonk Bud, the Hip-Cat Stud stood diggin’ a game of pool,
Now Honky wasn't braggin', but his bags was baggin,
And he was feelin' pretty cool,

It was the 15th frame, of a nine ball game, as Honky stood digging his play.

When; with a sudden shrug, he suddenly dug, this strange cat coming his way.

Now this cat, was a funny time cat and he wore a funny time hat.

He wanted to know where Joe was,

Honky said, “Joe’s not around, his bags are down and he ain’t feelin’ too cool,
But if you’re wantin’ to cop some sigh, I’ll cop for you,
'Cause I’m Honky-Tonk Bud the Hip-Cat Stud from Venice Avenue,

And in five seconds flat, Honky was back, pourin’ out smack from a cellophane sack,

He looked at the funny lookin’ guy and says, “Jim, I’m high.”
Jim says, “That’s cool, cause "dig Honky, it's the fbi."

So after three long years at San Quentin, Honky-Tonk Bud the Hip-Cat Stud was once again diggin’ a game of pool,

Now Honky wasn't braggin', but his bags was baggin', and
Once again, he was feelin' pretty cool,

It was the fifteenth frame of a nine ball game when, out the corner of his eye,

Who should he spy but that same funny lookin’ guy,
He wanted to know where Joe was,

Honky says, “Joe’s not around, his bags are down and he ain’t feelin’ too cool,
And if you’re wantin’ to cop some sigh, I’ll tell you right now,

Jim, you a damn fool.”

I love this poem.
It reminds me of a young guy I knew in Bayonne. (NJ)
He told it to me, back in 68'.
Tony, used to say all kinds of wise stuff like; "what goes around comes around, be careful what you wish for you just might get it."
He was murdered about 1970.
So this poem has sentimental value to me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      I know nothing about Scientology.

      Pharmaceutical drugs; are, what they are.

      IF a person gets ill and needs pharmaceuticals that's one thing. But they are not made to be used or abused recreationally over a long time.

      Even a doctor will tell you that they need to be used sparingly as they're not good for your body.

      With over 38,000 overdoses (2010), nationwide. Drug information is very important. So I just want to educate people; give them an idea, of what drugs actually are.

      This is a terrible subject. What, you expected someone could make a nice diary out of it?

      If you don't like this diary josephk, feel free to write one of your own on the subject.

    Only some actually abuse drugs. Those people need help to control themselves. Many of these overdoses would not happen if the drugs were legal and regulated, with labels telling you exactly what you are getting.

    The rest should be left alone to do what they want, as long as they are not doing things like driving and endangering others.

      legal and regulated. And very easy to od on. Especially if mixed with alcohol.

      My point was to provide info. I'm not a cop. I don't tell anyone what to do.

      My old high school Principal; (Such a wonderful man. I never would have graduated without his caring and help), used to get on the intercom and tell us "forewarned is forearmed" (regarding what was; but never did, gonna happen if they caught us again), every time they caught us smoking in the girl's room.

      Same idea here. If people insist on doing drugs, they should at least know how to and what they're getting.

      Let them make an informed choice.

    Alcohol is capable of killing an addict all by itself.  It just takes longer than when combined with prescription drugs.  It is cheap and easier to obtain than illicit drugs.  It has been especially harmful to native Indian communities with poverty as the catalyst.  Drug using parents model their behavior for their children.  Some children imitate, others rebel.
