    A lifetime in prison for what? A couple days feeding your fix?

    Its maddening and sad* at the same time. But that is the choices he made and now will pay the price.

    *Not sad enough to not have the book thrown at him. He should do every day they can give him.

    Well now he will probably spend the better part of his life locked up, not a good situation. So what could he have done differently?

    For starters don't take illegal drugs. If you must, then work within the system to make such drugs legal. Work to get people to sign petitions so a vote can be held that would legalize the drugs you want to take.

    Secondly, work, don't steal for the things you want. Don't assume that just because you want something, that you have the right to take that something from someone else by force and hurtful violence.
