HashtagPULSE: What if someone has depression?

Mexicanfoxy 1987: Lol at 1:13 Its Rick thanks for adding that I am a fan of Rick and Morty.

Cheas moon: Ya that makes sense

Kkk: Why the fuck is that rats tail red

Not A Horse: Diamorphine is not stronger, it's purer.

Cameron Freestone: Anyone else see Rick Sanchez in this video?

H J: Excellent video!

ebel desp: It's not true that the 95% of the soldiers just stopped taking drugs.They did go to rehab and the Usa goverment covered this up.

You Know: to be honest I did Meth the other day and I don't need it nor want it I done everything really and I believe it's mind over matter...I can see how porn or food can get out of control though

Logi798: First video im seeing from this channel. Now i will start on every single of video cause of the brillians it is!

Henk van der Henk: 1:13 rick from rick and morty wtf?

TheNikoflash: well, some points are really good but i want to see the hospital that gives diamorphine to their patients. there might be similar opiates but this is just wrong.

qrower: 1:15 RICK!

Marijn: 1:15 some animator is rick and morty fan

Fox Mcfat: 1:03 She became a junkie for different reasons :^)

Prins Ricky: Let me correct a bit on the facts, addiction started on 4th days of using Opioids not 21 days...huh I wish that long...

Danielle ford: I have heard this exact speech on Tedx...

PerfectTube12: In all honesty, when it comes to illegal drugs, the dealers should be the only ones imprisoned, not the users. Users should be rehabilitated, not thrown in the same place where they keep people who commit more heinous offenses, such as murder, rape, pedophilia, theft, drug dealing, etc, because all those offenses affect other people the most while using drugs affects you yourself the most.

Azlan Zaroun: hey I see rick
