Student editorial in reaction to Justin Warfield's death, included the following:

"Students ó pay attention ó here is a pop quiz. Did you know that heroin does not have the same reaction with every individual? Did you know that the first time you try it you could become addicted? Do you know what causes one to become addicted to heroin? The answers to these questions are not going to boost your grade point average but they could prevent a life or death situation."
