If people choose to destroy their lives with drugs, it should be their own prerogative.

I feel sorry for her family, but nobody should be surprised by this...

She's been a crackhead for twenty years. The only shock to me is that she lived this long.
Still, it's tragic.

Or could it be that the majority (as in, over 50%) of US citizens smoke pot at some point in their early lives, and some small percentage of US citizens eventually grow up to be drug addicts?
Correlation does not equal causation.
You might as well say, "It all started with ice cream."
That would be equally as likely and as easy to "prove".
I'm sure that nearly 100% of hardcore drug addicts tried ice cream at some point in their early lives, before moving on to hard drugs.

And coffee and cigarettes, too.
