Beverly Hills, CA—It was here at the late Merv Griffin’s old Beverly Hills Hilton that the award overloaded Whitney Houston took her last breath.
It’s a sad tale of an African-American woman who despite immense talent could not escape addiction to the deadly poison that obviously killed her.
Houston’s public behavior so-often lacked any of the dignity of her mellow voice. She was well beyond the point of humiliation.
Despite her music catalog’s incredible earnings Houston seemed barely a step ahead of the process servers and collection lawyers.
The last photos of her are pathetic. It shows an entourage of parasitic types holding her up. It looks like they were propping up their personal ATM.
The good news here is the courts will take control of her music’s future earnings for her only child. Most of her inner circle will now have to suck someone else’s blood for a change.
As for the War on Drugs, that was won against liberty, privacy, and has made all the wrong people hundreds of billions of dollars or more. Our politicians love that cash cow and will never let it go.
As for drug treatment, it’s only available to people who need it. They don’t want or need it for a cure but to reduce they time they’d otherwise be spending behind bars. Treatment needs to be reserved for only those that want to change their lives.
Every drug addict in America knows they can do whatever it takes to get the cash to purchase what no War on Drugs can stop.
