Confirmed; Opiate Overdose Slayed America's only Prince. America has drugs right where they want them. In our Hands!

Confirmed; Opiate Overdose Slayed America's only Prince. America has drugs right where they want them. In our hands! WAR ON!



I wrote my editorial about the beautiful one's overdose by many sentiments to soon. 
 Denial is a hard river to find but after you fall into it, you remain forevermore a casualty. I have fought this disease for 30 years and buried so many brothers and attempted to comfort their mothers, who watched their only prince turned into a soulless grifter before their hourglass emptied. I jumped the gun because we had a real opportunity to start a dialogue so far overdue it makes Carrie seem mature in the infamous shower scene. But it's taboo and it looks like we will allow it to be until our society resembles the walking dead. 
Rest easy Prince, your no less a marvel or savant because an official coroner checked a box. This is what it must sound like when doves cry. Silence, stigmas remain but sadly still so does the country's war on Health.
