She stole a “sharps box” full of dirty needles? I certainly hope she’s been quarantined.

Yea CV - it's disgusting. I'll tell you what it is - sad. Addicts are HOOKED and become shells of the real person they are. They beg, borrow & STEAL to please their addiction. You read that ? " ADDICTION " . It's a disease. Look up the definition of disease and perhaps you will develop an ounce of compassion.
