      Sadly, that scourge is not of just the current generation.

      Vynil, you’re great!
      The first thing I wanted to know..
      Who was Wallace Reid? And you provided the answer.
      Yes, very sad. Only 32... lost friends younger than that to that foul drug :(

      Vynil33rpm, That kind of problem has been around for a long time, although a well-t0-do person like Reid dying from it was probably somewhat unusual.

      Saxophonist Stan Getz also was an addict, but was probably prevented from dying that way by some combination of luck and wealth. Then again, he did die of liver cancer, and the liver is the human body's major filter...
