    The entertainment industry should take some responsibility for this young man death. Glee knew of his addiction and did nothing. Most employers require drug testing, but the industry doesn’t care.

    @BB: What a disturbing thing to say. Cory was in fact in and out of rehab, he made his addiction public. The only industry that takes ‘drug testing’ are athletes – this is for obvious reasons. Even then its easy to cheat your way through. Don’t put the blame on some one else. Drug addiction is mostly self help anyway. How is the entertainment industry got any blame to do with this? Cory unfortunately decided to put these substances in this own mouth, no one forced him to. Just like no one forced Michael Jackson or Heath Ledger to do the same.
    Either way, no blame game.

    Rest in Peace Cory. You will be missed by many in the world – some who you didn’t even meet, but still feel the effects of your death.
