24. I never understood the condescending attitude that a lot of people have toward "hillbilly heroin"
The stuff is produced by pharmaceutical companies, so it's pure and can be reasonably measured for dosage. It's like the opposite of meth, which is total garbage because it's made in the worst circumstances. The kids I talked to who did heroin only made the switch because they were sick of paying good money for oxy.
