It is easy to understand why the public demands homicide prosecutions against drug providers whose product caused the death of a beloved celebrity like Philip Seymour Hoffman. A person lies dead; someone must bear responsibility for his death.

Why, if you start thinking like that, the next thing you know you’ll be expecting everybody to take personal responsibility for their own stupid choices. And we certainly can’t have that.
