On this cold December morning, he’s taking time to visit an Albuquerque syringe exchange to pick up clean gear for his habit.</p><p>"I just look out for myself,” said Padilla. “'Round here there isn’t no friends, when it comes out to drugs and money, it’s all about trying to use each other. It’s the way it is.
