As much as I favor decriminalizing illegal drugs of all types, I oppose the notion that addictive mind-altering drugs are victimless. Whitney had a family and friends and she had us, her public. Her addiction(s) made her lose perspective, then her voice, now her life. She became her own victim and we who loved her are also victims. IT AIN'T RIGHT and it will never be right for Whitney. But what about the next little Whitney, or Michael or Elvis? What about them? Will it ever be right for them? Face it world, the war on drugs has never been a cure for addictive drugs; it's time to try another approach. I'm not sure what the answer is, but it probably will be found in Ann Arbor. It's Michigan, fergodsakes!
maybe i should have had greg howard write the brandon obit.
