Harlan Protass and Isabelle Kirshner Pen Piece for CNN

Harlan Protass and Isabelle Kirshner published an opinion piece on CNN.com entitled “Can dealers face murder charges in Hoffman’s Death?”  It addresses the question of whether those who sold the heroin to actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman on which he overdosed can be held accountable for his death and, if not, the other crimes that they might be charged with.  Ultimately, the article concludes that “[l]egally speaking, it was Philip Seymour Hoffman who was responsible for his own death, even if drug dealers sold him the means to that end.”
