This shouldn't come as a shock, but heroin is a very, very bad drug. Doing 15 bags of heroin in one day, therefore, is a catastrophically terrible idea, as one Massachusetts man found out by shooting up and then taking his Volkswagen Golf for a spin.
According to The Berkshire Eagle, 23-year-old Tyler Renton was the subject of several calls to local police after he was seen swerving down the road, crashing into garbage cans and even uprooting a tree when he missed a turn.

When police arrived, Renton couldn't form a sentence, although upon arrival to a hospital, he told medical personnel that it was the "best day of life" and that the only possible way it could get better would be if he were "riding a 12-point unicorn." When advised he should consider a methadone program, Renton said, "I will never do methadone. Meth is for quitters." Right.

Renton was charged with drugged driving as a subsequent offense, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and a marked lanes violation, according to the report.

      But if a unicorn had 12 points... never mind.

      15 Bags of Heroin and NOT DEAD. I can imagine that after a nuclear war, that the only things to survive it would be this guy and cockroaches. This probably would be the only situation where I would actually feel sorry for the cockroaches.

      15 bags. That is an accurate measurement. If the dude was drunk we wouldn't be reading about it right now, because that happens everyday.

      AutoBlog stoops to the new cultural norm of public bullying. How far they have fallen in terms of journalistic integrity.

        What exactly is bullying about this article? Deriding someone for a decision that is universally accepted to be dangerous and stupid is not called bullying where I come from.

          Are you going to give us the pro heroin argument? Doesn't matter what his history is. You end up on heroin, you're a loser.

        Obviously, Heroin being legal was the problem here. Oh wait.... You seem to be laboring under some kind of weird notion that having it illegal means people won't use it. All that having it illegal accomplishes is the enrichment of criminals and Billions of dollars wasted on the "War on Drugs". Legalize it, tax it and turn into a revenue source, instead of revenue drain.

        The fact that you are comparing heroin to marijuana is proof that your opinion is severely flawed and irrelevant.

        Marijuana is just a plant. It makes a lot more sense to make GMO corn illegal. GMO causes much more harm than marijuana.

        I don't want it legalized for normal consumption, but I would like more studies put into it. I never agreed with it for many years but then I watched the news special (the name escapes me) and then did some more digging. Looks like they banned it back in the 60's because they needed further testing on what it does and doesn't help but then no one made any more studies. It could be the reason that it hasn't been used in medicine more in the US is because the Pharmaceutical companies can't patent/stop anyone from growing their own. It would be fairly simple if someone was prescribed it and it worked to grow 1-3 plants for themselves and stop paying 100's for prescriptions. No way in hell I want someone going to a 7-11 and picking up a joint but I would be open to more medicinal uses. They don't have to smoke it to get the benefits. They could make a pill, powder, syrup etc. Right now it's a "cool" think to smoke it.

      We need to examine drug laws in America. This dangerous drug gets you a prescription for Suboxone while lesser drugs get years imprisonment.

        Yes, because this guy is going to be deterred if we JUST had the right laws in place. And your dream police state will ALWAYS be able to write laws faster than the "industry" can make things from which people like this can get high. I think our perp here isn't the only one chasing unicorns...
