RENO METH SUPPLY DOWN PRICE UP

August 11, 2008

 

It’s tough these days to be a drug addict. Even in the Biggest Little City in the World. The price of gas keeps going up. But not as much as the price of meth!

Today’s Reno Gazette- Journal has the story about the town’s meth supply drying up. The result?  The cost of methamphetamines has gone from $50 a gram to $100 for a tenth of a gram. That’s a 2,000 % increase. What’s a poor meth addict to do?

The result is meth use is down 31 percent between June of 2007 and June of 2008.

Yay!

Unfortunately heroin use is up 1,375 %.

Boo!

Loser meth addicts have simply shifted to being loser heroin addicts. A tenth of a gram of heroin sells on the street for $10. By comparison, a tablet of OxyContin sells for $50 to $80.

After all, it’s not like drug addicts are going to quit using drugs. They just steal more stuff from me and you.

That explains the latest bill going through congress. Last year drug addicts stole between $750,000 and $1 million worth of copper wiring in the city of Las Vegas. Drug addicts steal the copper and sell it at recycling centers. Nevada Senator Harry Reid, a Democrat, introduced a bill that would give the city of Las Vegas $1 million to pay for the thefts.

Republicans seized on the opportunity and yelled, “Earmark!” (Also “pork barrel”and “He’s a witch!”) The result is the bill was knocked down to $400,000. Unfortunately, Reid is so ineffectual and useless that even though he’s the senate majority “leader” he can’t even get a lousy 400 grand in times of a 9 trillion dollar deficit.

ANDY DICK

Honestly, if you can get into this much trouble at a Buffalo Wild Wings you’re a complete degenerate.

The National Enquirer is reporting that actor and “comedian” Andy Dick was arrested in California on drug and sexual battery charges.

Police responded to reports of “an intoxicated male” at a Murrieta Buffalo Wild Wings. A 17-year-old girl told officers arriving on the scene that Dick had pulled her top down exposing her breasts. Police found the prescription tranquilizer Xanax on the loser actor along with some pot.

Dick was booked on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanor sexual battery and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

TATUM O’NEAL

Tatum O’Neal (who won an Academy Award at the age of 10 for her performance in Paper Moon) was arrested last night and charged with buying cocaine and crack.

According to today’s New York Post, the 44-year-old actress actually pulled the “Do you know who I am?” card when she was caught buying drugs by police. Police found a drug pipe and screen on O’Neal as well as the cocaine. O’Neal originally claimed she bought the drugs because she was “researching a part’ but later change her story and asked the cops, “Can’t we just forget about this?”

MARIJUANA USE AFFECTS MEMORY (OF FORMER NFL RUNNING BACKS)

May 24, 2008

RASHAAN SALAAM

Pro Football Talk came up with this great item:

Somebody got the genius idea recently to interview former Chicago Bears running back Rashaan Salaam about current Chicago Bears running back Cedric Benson and his so-far wasted career.

After all, Salaam was one of the players on a list by ESPN.com featuring “The Worst Draft Picks in 25 Years” and you could probably make the argument that so far Benson has been a bigger failure than Salaam.

Salaam mentioned his well-known use of marijuana. He claims “everybody” in the league smokes pot and denied it contributed to his failed NFL career. Fine. Except www.profootballtalk.com dug up an interview from 2003 where Salaam clearly thought differently. At the time Salaam said,

 

“It really took the life out of me. It took away my love for football.  My love turned toward the weed.  That’s not the person I really am, you know what I’m saying.  I want to play football, not smoke weed all my life.  My life got away from me.”

 

MARK CUBAN: “I’VE INHALED”

May 22, 2008

 

THIS GUY HAS SMOKED POT?

Appearing on the Dan Patrick radio show today, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban admitted he would be reluctant to discipline Mavs forward Josh Howard for using marijuana because of his own past use of the drug.

Patrick: Do you care if he smokes pot?

Cuban: I’d be a hypocrite if I said ‘yes’ because I’ve inhaled, and when I inhaled I coughed a couple lungs out. And so I was never a big fan of smoking, but I’ve tried it. I can’t look at somebody and say, ‘That’s just terrible…’  Again, I’d just be hypocritical if I said, ‘Josh, smoking pot is just the worst thing you could possibly do.’
