Bad choice: A Wisconsin man traded a Starbucks gift card for a fatal dose of heroin. The teen who did the trade is now charged in the death, according to the Associated Press

Ryan Kennington, 18, died on Nov. 27. Four people have been charged. Kennington was found dead the day after he was injected with the heroin he received. 

We're still wondering how much Starbucks cash is worth an injection of heroin. Prices at Starbucks are pretty inflated these days.
