Where I live the 'local heroes' are more of a sad lot than dangerous, from what I've heard at the pub and making my own conclusions it seems like they are acting out their favourite scenes from the various gangster flicks they've seen with Scarface being an apparent favourite.

Do you find this a lot?

I have a close family member who was addicted to opiates who is now on substitute medication called Subutex, she is functioning and stable now but seems to be more hooked on the Subutex than she ever was on oxycontin, what is your opinion on Subutex and substitute medication in general?
