This in spite of the fact that his wife says he was clean, and well before any toxicology screening comes back.

It looks like someone on the derp brigade just can't wait to get on his anti-drug hobby horse. What does it matter if he's using the death of another human being to cynically advance his agenda? So long as DRUGS ARE EVIL, any excuse is sufficient.

TL;DR: Screw this jackass.

This.  Seems that perfectly legal alcohol was his biggest downfall.  To be fair though, I'm sure the coke didn't help either.

Not to agree with the author, but I have heard that Keith Richards and Ozzy Osbourne have a gene that makes it very easy for them to flush the drugs out of their system, and also mitigates the effect of the drug itself. I forget if this was pure speculation though, or whether there's actually been tests done on Keith and Ozzy.

Like Daniel knows what he is talking about...

"A dose of heroin goes for $8 to $20, which, coincidentally, stands as the prevailing rate for oral sex in drug-doomed neighborhoods."

I stand corrected.

Keith Richards seems to be immune to the long-term effects of heavy drug ingestion, but Ozzy? Ozzy's pretty much operating on three or four synapses by now.

Amazing that everyone projected their own biases into his suicide, in an attempt to grind a particular ax.

Drug prohibition enriches organized crime. We have two long term examples of this (Prohibition and the War On Drugs). Both were expensive miserable failures.

In short, despite what your self-righteous asshole nature tells you, regulating what sane informed people put in their own bodies is moronic.

I would be hesitant to describe drug addicts as sane or informed. Definitely not informed. Seriously, who in their right mind would take heroin, knowing it could become the only thing they want in life, or cocaine, knowing it could give them a heart attack and kill them within minutes?

The whole concept of "illegal drugs" is the opposite of information. They're not all the same. Not everything is essentially harmless like weed or LSD, but once anyone realizes some illegal drugs are harmless, they're a lot more receptive to trying something else.

moothemagiccow: shiat I thought Williams's act was founded on cocaine


A substantial portion of William's work was basically attempting to convince himself that life was worth living by convincing everyone else, as manically as possible.

It astounded me how many people were surprised by his suicide. I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. Contrary to received wisdom, comedians are not happy people.

I think it is genius. Allow the people who need drugs to have them. Reduce the scarcity. Let them live and die the way they want. Give them as much as they need to OD.

Reduce the population, free up space for those of us who actually want to be productive in this life, rather than let them who sit around and force everyone to deal with their bs.

I remember being 18, going to a concert for the first time with my best friend. My best friend, who to my knowledge had only smoked marijuana and maybe popped a few pills said, "If we find any heroin, man I'm going to do heroin. There's no way in hell either of us will have access to heroin again anytime soon, we won't get hooked, so wouldn't you do it just once? You'll do it with me, won't you?" I just looked at him horrified.

He wasn't an Addict, but he had some messed up priorities.

dionysusaur:

Because I'm better than him.  Some drugs really are bad.  Coke isn't as bad as others, but I think we can all agree a cocaine addiction can take a heavy toll.  Couple that with (legal) alcoholism and possible predisposition to depression and it's a recipe for disaster.

/almost all drugs are relatively harmless if used sparingly and responsibly

Good thing they were rich or it would have sucked to have the "drugs barely work on you" gene.

Subby, you dolt... As someone who was actually a Straight Edge, let me just say that you need to stop tossing around terms like that when you're not 100% sure of their meaning. There is no way that Daniel J. Flynn was  ever a Straight Edge, and he certainly isn't one now.

Google it,  subby.It's only the first entry that returns on the search. I'll wait.

Flynn may be straight-laced, but he certainly isn't Straight Edge.

At 18, bad idea. You don't know what you'll have access to in the next few years. Now in my 30s, I've done more than my fair share of drugs and still never seen heroin.

If an opportunity cropped up where I have a couple of good friends to watch my back and am far enough from home to never again run into whoever has the heroin... fark it let's go.

Keith Richards' blood was replaced by heroin-infused ichor about four decades ago. He's kind of like a zombie that just keeps moving around because of all the drugs that are STILL in his system.

He should stop moving in another decade or so when the flow of white is cut off.

Most of the guys I knew could be funny. I can't say I ever knew of a truly Straight Edge professional comedian though. They tended to go for music, instead.
