Junkie Den, Chicago 2013

WGN just did a story on the heroin epidemic here in the Land. They said a $10.00 bag could "keep an addict high for a day or two." That's just not correct, at least not in my experience. I do not know a single addict that stays high all day on one $10.00 bag. Most heroin addicts that I have encountered have about a four bag per day habit on average, with some addicts having as much as a 10 to 12 bag per day habit.

This is Shaggy. I've watched Shaggy inject as many as three $10.00 bags, one right after the other. No $10.00 per day habit here:
