    I feel sorry for the family but not for him. He selfishly took drugs and did this to himself and left 3 young children behind. I feel sorry for the famil.

    @pot: Or look like a piece of sh*t because they can’t handle fame. This man’s case was different though, because he didn’t get much attention. I think he was desperate for success.

    Now do some “democrat” voters still want to put the drugs legal in this country? Nice perspective.

    Agree. Drugs and drug users are way too much excused in this country. The problem is that these people don’t want to stay away from their drugs and booze.

    I love PSH more than anyone I know, but is it really needed to have so many posts? Why can’t we just continue to update one master post as information is released. This is REALLY excessive.

    Also Big Pharma is a huge ” legal ” drug operation, that does destroy lives as well.

    Weed is far less dangerous than alcohol and should be legal. If someone needs a drug like heroin to mask their feelings then they are going to get it no matter what.

    there are a lot of upper class heroin addicts and it is a very addictive drug. also some prescription drugs are heroin based such as vicodin. Once you are addicted it is very hard to stay clean and sober. many people relapse. alcohol is also very hard to quit. Mr. Hoffman was a very talented actor and he will be missed.

    Some have wondered if the actor’s passing had anything to do with the recent split between himself and his long term girlfriend and mother of his children, although one is wanton to wonder if the split was a result of the actor ‘acting’ up to his demons. Yet ironically it was the actor’s incredible ability to tap into his dark that made him a Hollywood staple.

    At present cops are trying to trace who his drug dealer may have been as the empty envelopes of heroin with purple hearts have not been seen on the street since 2008…

Acting for the actor was simply ‘torturous’ on stage as he once told and one suspects offstage as well.
