I'm listening to the Diane Rehm show and "Stacey" called in saying she's an addict...

She has severe pain problems and people ask her howcum if she has no car and little food she can afford heroin.

"Because it's cheaper than anything else out there. I can't afford any other medicine."

Panelists had already made the point that if you have a heart problem or cancer, nobody tells you that if you're not better after a few weeks of treatment it's your own fault.


It's live now, and half over, but for maybe a week or so you'll be able to listen to it scrolling through the shows listed:

"Efforts To Curb The Nationís Deadly Heroin Epidemic

The Centers for Disease Control reported the number of Americans who died from heroin overdoses quadrupled in the decade ending in 2013. We look at what's behind the nation's surge in heroin addiction and what some communities are doing to fight back."

And it's doctors and therapists, not cops, doing most of the talking.
