Good points, and yes, the reporting of Hoffman's death glamorizes its means even as it deplores them. That's at least partially because of the U.S. approach toward drugs, which has always been moralistic and combative, rendering them even more attractive. Until this country accepts them, and accepts that they're addictive (and so, if quasi-legalized, measurable and controllable), this kind of media treatment –and the abuse – will continue.
