The Joys Of Oxycrack

I have been meaning to write something about this ever since the story came out that these nice men--or in street lingo drug pushers--lied about the addictive nature of their wonderful product (hat tip to Rudy Giuliani for assisting in these efforts) and caused countless deaths and misery throughout swaths of this country.

When I was working on a political campaign in Kentucky a few years back, we had to come up with a plan just to deal with this one drug, as some towns saw one in eight residents addicted. Just another success story in the precursor to the The War On Terror, our idiotic War On Drugs that has been an abysmal failure.

So pot gets you jail time. So should these guys then get the chair? I like Scott Thill's take on how differently we treat these two drugs.

That oxy is some nasty shit.

There are hundreds of deaths in the US every year from ASPIRIN (many are suicides).

Never has there been a recorded death from use or abuse of marijuana.

Some research places the LD-50 at a kilo smoked in an hour.

Other research can identify no LD-50 whatsoever.

Given the choice of my non-existent child smoking dope or doing the OCs?

I'd pack the bong myself.
