Seems like different eras have different drug problems. Heroin, and LSD, were big problems in the 60s and 70s, cocaine was the big problem in the 80s, crack in the 90s, now it seems that legal prescriptions are big problem.
Although it has not been confirmed, it seems that Whitney may have died as a result of legal prescriptions.
Whitney Houston Cause of Death: Prescription Drugs? Drowning? http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/297274/20120212/whitney-houston-cause-death-prescription-drugs-drowning.htm
If so, then we can add Whitney to the list of Micheal Jackson, Anna Nichole Smith, Daniel Wayne Smith, maybe others.
I am seeing anti-drug commercials about kids getting into prescription drugs. I have watched some news show about the growing trend of doctors that will write prescriptions for anything, for enough money.
Anybody else notice this?
