Background on Cindy McCain's drug addiction - Harold Pollack argues that Democrats should refrain from trashing Cindy McCain for her history of drug addiction.There's no shame in being a recovering addict--or an active user for that matter, provided your habit isn't hurting other people. However, Cindy McCain chose to feed her addiction in particularly loathsome ways.When you're as rich and well-connected as she is, there are ways to feed a prescription drug habit that don't involve pressuring your underlings to commit crimes on your behalf.Cindy McCain stole drugs from a medical charity. It doesn't get much lower than that. Worse still, she used her employees' names to obtain drugs, and even enlisted some her her staff to pick up those prescriptions on her behalf. She also used the DEA numbers of multiple physicians who worked for the American Voluntary Medical Team to obtain drugs, often without the doctors' knowledge. (Cf. Laura Silverman's excellent reporting on the McCain drug scandal.)

Reminds me of that dentist over in Shreveport who got busted for writing Norco prescriptions to his drug addict wife.

Being an addict is bad no matter what, but to me even worse are those who don't even try to kick their drug habit, that are just in rehab to keep from going to jail. My sister deals with this type daily.

My wife , a certified addiction professional, does too. By the way I have been clean and sober for 22 years now.
