I see by today's USA Today that drug dealers are now attempting to lure young people to use methamphetamine by peddling flavored meth. Among the flavors being found by DEA agents are strawberry, chocolate, cola, and other soda flavors (Dr. Pepper would seem to be a natural here).
Well, if this is true, it is absolutely unconscionable! It is outrageous!
When are we going to stop coddling and pandering to this younger generation?
When I was young and strung out, we took our narcotic and stimulant drugs without any fancying up, the way God or Pfizer or No-cuts Norman made them. If your speed tasted like battery acid, well, by God, that was the price you paid to burn another hole in your frontal lobe. If you wanted to honk something fruit-flavored up your nose, you went to the House of Pancakes. Some of us, anyway.
I recall a hit of DMT in 1977 that made everything I ate taste like burning rat droppings for three days. They don't make drugs like that anymore.
Chocolate flavored crank! Preposterous. Next thing you know, they'll be selling fruit flavored vodka.
Eh? Say what?
