Some do: I recall a 23 yo who died a few years back from Hepatitis A. Untreated Hepatitis B (the addicts get) can & does kill. Those who recover can go on to chronic liver failure, liver cirrhosis & liver cancer. An addict would NEVER be considered for a liver transplant, which can be the only way to avoid a miserable death. Some kids consider themselves invulnerable, in this case, it is just a bad choice
