I think that organ donation is one of the greatest gifts you can give another person. You are literally giving them years of extra life in order to enjoy at their fullest. When you die, you have visions of your heart going to some poor kid in Chicago who only wanted to be an Eagle Scout. Or your lungs go to emphysema patients who vow off smoking forever after and live to be 100. What you don't expect is that the recipient of one of your organs will be busted in a crack house three years later. After reading this article, I may have to re-think this whole donation thing. I would hate to have my kidney donated to a crackhead gangster, but I bet his teacher thought the same thing.
