Re: Another fine celebrity FAIL.
An addiction to prescription painkillers is just like any other addiction. Prescription drugs are more esoteric and harder to find on the street (with some exceptions) hence the need for the armed robbery.
One of my best friends when I was a teenager turned into a major drug addict. I have sympathy for those that end up in that position and wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy. With that said, if you commit a crime you take the responsibility. Addiction is not an excuse.
