The number of deadly heroin overdoses in the United States more than quadrupled from 2010 to 2015, a federal agency said on Friday, as the price of the drug dropped and its potency increased.
There were 12,989 overdose deaths involving heroin in 2015, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, compared with 3,036 such fatalities five years earlier.
Quite frankly, the above gives me hope that at least one of those will eventually be my idiot, heroin-addict half-brother. I have nothing but contempt for the worthless fuck, and would be hard-pressed not to pull a “Vivian Vance”, if such an O.D. happened:
Rumor has it that on March 3, 1966, upon hearing of Frawley’s death while in a restaurant Vance then ordered the entire house a round of champagne.
