My post about Russian beer regulation and the headlines from Amy Winehouse's death got me thinking about society and it's complacency with drugs. I'm not talking about the bullshit U.S. War on Drugs. Criminalizing this stuff is a horrid idea. I'm talking about people's willful desire to slowly but surely poison themselves. Why are so many people down to kill brain cells? Why does society largely ostracize those who refrain from recreational drug/alcohol use? Next time someone looks at me like an alien when I say I don't do that, I'll tell them Kermit, Tigger, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Alf, Garfield, Bugs Bunny, Huey, Duey and Louie told me not to.
