Today in 2017 so many people are dying of overdoses. It is kind of sickening. I do not understand why this takes place. I feel like it's a new ''trend'' for a lack of a better discription. It isn't even a good, or cool thing to be involved in. I have heard so many stories involving death by drugs. Whether it is because of overdose, they couldn't pay for the substance, or some one got into it and didn't know what the the pill, powder, or another form was. There was a murder not far from where I live. Later in the week the authorities found the murder was due because a man could not pay for drugs. I couldn't understand it. I always thought of my neighborhood as a safe place. But now drugs are not found just in big cities, but in the smallest unheard of towns.
