Dr Strangelove: I noticed they were real fast going after the drug dealers I bet if he was some kid from the hood that OD they wouldn’t have done anything.

Eliza: Mr. Hoffman was a grown man who had been out into the world a long time.
He had access to help if he had the will power, and the desire to try and do away with his drug habit. The drugs wasn't helping the will power.
He was the one who chose to go the other route, he chose how it might end.

The only ones I feel sorry for are the children he left behind.

The movie people who are crying about the mans death, should let this death be a lesson, and it might help them think about getting help for their own probable drug habit.

Roody2: Perhaps Hollywood should drug test their actors. After all, people in the real world are required to go through drug testing to get their job.

Bubba: Apparently, this person was "famous" and apparently acted in some movies. The real tragedy her is that everyone appeared to be well aware of his addiction and self-destructive behavior, yet no one acted.
