DrugLaw

1) Trying to smuggle cocaine into jail by hiding it in Bibles. Because we've all wanted to be able to stand in front of St. Peter and say, "Yes, I did some really bad and stupid things in my life but at least I didn't do that." (Do you think snitching will earn points in Heaven the way it does in the justice system?)

2) Grandparents turn parent in for getting two year old high on cocaine.

3) A narcolepsy drug may help people break their cocaine addictions:
In addition to blunting cocaine's notorious cravings, modafinil might also counter the damage that cocaine wreaks on users' brain circuits - damage that in turn fuels the cycle of addiction.
4) The methadone's just supposed to stop heroin addiction. Nobody said it was meant to stop cocaine and marijuana use. (BTW - yes, at least the way my clients refer to it, it's "the methadone" not simply "methadone": i.e. I'm on the methadone.)

5) In Montana a man is trying to take refuge in the State's medical marijuana exception. The problem is that the 4 pounds he was caught with is a little more than the ounce allowed by law. Oh, and apparently he's not a Montanan. You'll never guess what State he's from . . .

The medical marijuana case is silly. Who needs four pounds all at once? That is an incredible amount of pot. It would all dry out before that guy was ever able to use it all.

What?!? Are you trying to insinuate that this poor, hapless, put-upon fellow traveler is perhaps stretching the truth?

Say it ain't so . . .

Down here in South Oz it's called "The 'Done" (rhymes with 'dome').
