And the heroin
Em' uses “heroin” as a generic narcotic for the general misconception that the media, as well as Middle America, has of drugs actual effects.
Heroin specifically however, is actually unlikely to trigger the impulses that lead to an act of violence (it is more likely to make you sit and stare at the end of your shoe for eight hours). Therefore, to blame such an event as Columbine on teenage heroin use is both pitifully out of touch and medically unsubstantiated.
