Today's most asinine news story

This is ridiculous. A news story this morning warning of contaminated cocaine. So what? I know I'm going to piss a few people off with this, but who cares? Deep recession, factories closing, terrorism on the rise again, markets in crisis, families about to go through Christmas with nothing, and this is a concern to... who? 

Let's think about this for a minute. Contaminated cocaine. There's an oxymoron if I ever heard one. The stuff isn't exactly aspirin. It's a dangerous drug that can kill you. So they found a batch that will do that a little faster than normal. I say put that crap into production! Distribute it out and let it do it's work. The people addicted to the stuff I do feel for - life hasn't exactly dealt them a fair blow, but this is the basket they landed in. Maybe getting seriously ill will be the catalyst they need to get the fuck off the stuff. Make the stuff safer will only encourage more use! 

Let the stuff do it's worst and let the rest of us get back to what concerns us. Life on the legal side. 

Gimme a break.

What's your stupid news of the day?



  1. Keith, I'm not sure I agree that making cocaine safe will "encourage" people to use it.

    If you have the mindset that allows you to first try, and then become addicted to, cocaine, a little contamination isn't going to stop you.

    Just like a person who isn't prone to try it isn't going to run out and buy and 8 ball because it's suddenly "safer."


Yell at me...
