“My son, like a lot of people, like a lot of people you know at home, had a drug problem. He’s overtaken it. He’s fixed it. He’s worked on it. And I’m proud of him. I’m proud of my son.”
And on a personal note: O’ fuck yes. Drug addiction is a mental health and public health issue. It is NOT a criminal issue. It is NOT a moral issue. And it is NOT something to be ashamed of or something anyone should use to make anyone feel ashamed.
