      Your joking right? Rehabilitation is what is needed here. “Dope heads” as y’all call them are human too. They are mothers,fathers,sisters,
      Brothers, sons and daughters. You are not any better than they are. Sure hope y’all don’t claim to be Christian’s. Oh and Ethan grobb aren’t u a recovering addict? Worry about your own closet before u try to clean someone else’s.
