Thanks to the government I now know how to get high

Wherein why is so much of this illegal when they're spending so much time and money promoting it?

Back in my day, there was only beer. Sure, there were jokes about sniffing airplane glue, but anyone who had ever made models knew this would only cause splitting headaches. Now, like everything else, kids today are mollycoddled when it comes to using drugs.

Read this American Council for Drug Education fact sheet on inhalants. Apparently a person can get high from a can of whipped cream. No shit? And date rape drugs are found in nail polish.

Then there's the new television campaign: For teens, getting drugs can be as easy as opening your medicine cabinet.

You know what the government told me when I was in high school? NOTHING! Bastards. Just in case that ad wasn't clear enough, there's another one emphasizing there's no need to buy from the skeezoid in the bad part of town:

That's the problem with the youth of today. There's no incentive to work for anything, we give them everything they could ever want.

If it weren't for bulletins warning of the spread of "Jenkem"(pdf at link, found at Snopes), I never would have known how to cook up my own batch and sell it to the local elementary school kids.

(I find the waste collected from one of the local 'assisted living' facilities that dot Santa Monica makes for the best grade "Butthash")

Speaking of drugs, Sports Illustrated is taking a deepr look at performance enhancing drugs and their prevalence in society at large. The first article is here, and they have some others. Given your interest in the topic I thought that some of it might be of interest.
