"The Cheapest Pharmacies Are CVS And Wal-Mart"

In town the other day on Main St., I happened upon a friend who was going through the motions, in what is a daily routine for him. Get heroin, get his kit which consists of clean needles, hose, cotton, and whatever else you use, and then get high. I asked him if I could tag along to to photo document the process. He agreed, and I put the photos together in a slide that you can watch below. When you upload videos to blip.tv, the hosting service I use for videos, you are asked to give the video a rating; Unrated, All Children, General Audience, Parents Strongly Cautioned, Mature Audiences Only, etc...I rated it Mature Audience Only. So any kids out there under the age of 18 should not be watching this video. Although come to think of it, I saw all of this is D.A.R.E. classes while in middle school, save for the actual shooting up part. So who am I to say who should be watching what?

I started photographing as we entered the needle exchange, which was moments after he picked up the heroin from his friend.

(for those reading via an RSS reader that does not pick up flash video, here is the URL to the video online)
