For anyone wishing to write to Shannon, he has an e-mail address through an inmate service called Prisoner Life. The address is Shannon@PrisonerLife.com. The e-mails will be sent to him via this third party service. He would love to hear from anyone willing to take the time to write. Thanks, Sue Blog Administrator
March 24, 2011 Recently I read a letter to the editor of the Arizona Republic newspaper that saddened and disgusted me. A woman from Arizona expressed her opinion that the blood of those who have died in Mexico's war against drug cartels is on the hands of drug users. Having been a drug addict since around thirteen years old and having a deep understanding of addiction and the illegal drug trade through experience and books, I'm more than qualified to say that the letter writer is not only a part of the drug problem in society, but it is beliefs like hers that keep addicts using. Arguably, her hands are bloodier than the average using addict. The using addict isn't thinking rationally when using. The addict generall suffers from mental/emotional illness. The addict generally has suffered trauma in some form. the addict is not proud of much of anything in their life, let alone their addiction. No, they are victims most often.
