Heroin Charity Scandal Update and More Heroin News
Here's a link for the update on yesterday's heroin charity scandal. Apparently, not only was the woman who started the charity spending money on vacations and alcohol, she was also fueling her own addiction to the Dallas Cowboys and getting in tight with former football players so she could attend ritzy events like the football Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. Weird.
In Nigeria yesterday, officials made a bust of 62 kilograms of heroin. Because of Nigeria's "corrupt beaurocracy" and "porous borders," it serves as a conduit for those smuggling to Latin America and then on into the United States or Europe. The person transporting the goods was a 62 year old grandmother, who said she began smuggling to support herself after her children and family abandoned her.
Romanian police who had been using a confiscated Porsche 911 for undercover work found 60 kg of heroin hidden under the backseat when the car was given to police mechanics for routine maintenance. Good thing the mechanics are honest!
The 19th Texas teenager died yesterday of an overdose of the new "cheese" heroin.
Motley Crue's basist Nikki Sixx is planning to release his heroin diaries, which he kept during his active addiction during the band's heyday.
