Was I Offensive?

I posted an inane status on Facebook this afternoon (as is my eont) that said, "Does anyone know how much a recreational meth habit cost per month? I'm really tired." Amid my usual smattering of likes and tongue-in-cheek comments, I got a message from someone that said "I really wish you'd take your status down. Meth addiction makes me really sad." I asked if they were serious and they said completely, and that they knew a handful of current and former meth addicts and it wasn't anything to joke about. I responded that I had little sympathy for people who willingly tried meth and joking about it wasn't like joking about cancer or even alcoholism. He responded he was disappointed in me and we ended the conversation. I'm taking this to the DL: would you be offended if someone made a casual joke about meth or was this person over-reacting? It was a polite enough conversation, but I'm still irritated someone asked me to censor myself on my own page.
