They're Just Kids

What jumped out at me from the heroin story in today's JS:

Marlana J. Socha, 20, Thomas A. Brinkman, 19, Eric A. Russell, 19, Bryant Abkes-Knight, 18, Leroy K. Rushing, 21, and Michelle M. Turner, 20.

Overall, only eight of the twenty-seven charged were over the age of 25.

Not that long ago, The Man With the Golden Arm kinda left the impression that H-addicts were mostly in their late 20's, with some who had survived (somehow) into their 50's.

Things are changing, no?
