So, WTF?!! Wow...

THIS was REALLY a headline... "Father who ACCIDENTALLY put heroin and methadone in his infant son's bottle, unintentionally killing him, convicted!"

Um... yeah. I'm not joking. How do you ACCIDENTALLY put heroin and methadone in a bottle? I am just a bit confused at how that is EVEN possible, and it is idiots like THIS that create a bunch of the misconceptions that methadone patients are "irresponsible druggies," etc. because they see the word METHADONE and don't pay attention to anything else.

Of COURSE there are TONS of crazy articles like this on a daily basis involving the misuse of methadone (which is VERY different than methadone in a properly administered treatment modality), but THIS particular headline just REALLY took the cake in my opinion, so I wanted to share my shock & disgust......

Here's the link to the original article:
