Metal bands have some pretty awful lyrics in the regular direction.  It's a wonder more busybody parents aren't being inadvertently brainwashed when they listen to the songs backwards trying to find the alleged hidden messages.

No subby, it's true, look I found all of those evil products.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi  told "Fox Files" that she first heard of these synthetic drugs soon after being sworn into office.  She received a disturbing letter from a local Sheriff.

Wait - hold it.  Time out.  It took the Sheriff "3 hours" to drive from Panama City to Bondi's office in Tallahassee?  That's only about 100 miles.  What was *he* smoking?

Let's see the Attention Whore AG make that illegal.

Attention fellow citizens:  There is no substance that someone, somewhere, will not ingest in the pursuit of getting high.  This does not mean that practice is common and widespread.

Take into account that Florida loves to tear up their highways, leave them in disrepair for inordinate lengths of time and start repairs the moment they need to justify their next year's budgets.

Anyone who has the misfortune of having to drive US Highway 19 or I-275 knows this all too well.

This.  Ever since we had enough brain cells to crawl out of the primordial ooze, human beings have pursued ways to get high. Discovering fermentation likely played a big role in getting us to settle down in communities and stop all that hunter-gatherer wandering.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to find my spirit animal in a bottle of Old Fezziwig.

I heard that Mikey from the Life cereal commercial got run over by an 18-wheeler while having sex with a road cone after smoking ecstasy. The driver was playing the choking game. His name is Otto Titsling.

Yep.  Been there and done that.  Toss into the equation old bald gentlemen or blue-haired ladies in Mercs and Caddies who can barely see over the steering wheel.  And, well...

Um, I started to make a list of other hazardous drivers in Florida, but got dizzy thinking of all the examples.

I got to 'designer drugs like....Molly' before I closed.

Molly's been around since the farking 80s at least, it's not remotely new or 'designer', unless you meant your friend Molly from college was selling you stems and shiatty weed while going to school to be a clothing designer and are still pissed about it.
 
2013-11-24 10:33:59 AM
The sad thing is, the ones to blame for how bad these things have gotten is none other than the authorities. I was introduced to "spice" or whatever you want to call it several years ago by a friend who had to quit smoking pot for a job. However, he had found this stuff, and while it wasn't as potent as real pot, he still enjoyed it.

Over time, it got more and more popular as a sort of "legal pot." Of course, the authorities got wind of this, and banned the primary chemicals involved in it. Instead of stopping, the "spice" makers just switched to new chemicals. Those got banned. Rinse, repeat, etc.

Now, I can't speak for bath salts, as I never went anywhere near them. But if the authorities want to blame someone for spice being so bad these days, they can point the finger squarely at themselves, and their crippling fear of anything even remotely like pot.

I love how they were able to throw the word Molly in there as if it is being sold in stores.  I'm really getting tired of it being sensationalized in the news.  Most of the time they don't even know what the hell it is.  They will say that it is powdered ecstasy and ZOMG you never know how much you are taking.  The people who died at those music festivals did not ingest any Molly, they were sold Methylone, aka bath salts.  One of them, the girl, took 5 doses of it at a time.

I'm one of 24 people in the US right now that is getting treated for chronic PTSD with MDMA and it is an approved FDA study sanctioned by the DEA.  It really grinds my gears when morons try to malign the drug to get advertising dollars by scaring dumbasses.

Yeah, this.

Spice, synthetic marijuana, bath salts, everything they mentioned in the article is stuff that you can actually buy from head shops in some states or over the internet. And yeah, that shiat's sold as "legal alternatives" to weed, coke, meth, and heroin. Sometimes even as alternatives to MDMA, LSD, or ketamine.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Mikey pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Subby must dig smoking "spice"

There were no urban legends in that article. Synthesized drugs are real, and are a problem. In many people, they induce psychosis - worse, it is often untreatable, due to the way the drugs work.

The local liquor store was selling this stuff to anybody who walked in, any age, until our state outlawed it.

I bet subby has done enough drugs to know that they can only exacerbate mental issues that were already there. I've never heard of an atheist doing enough drugs to see god. I bet subby has tried.

"And he started talking about this thing called bath salts, and I had never heard of it.  And he said, 'These things are a hallucinogenic.  Kids think they can fly.'  And he was scared to death because spring break was coming up, and you have got teenagers in high rises who are hallucinating."

That's the old "a young man on acid jumped out of a fifth story window because he thought he could fly" urban legend right there. Been doing the rounds for about 50 years now. But you're right, most of the rest is just hysterical fear-mongering rather than actual urban legends. I mean look the hell at this -

"'Pam, this is synthetic heroin, LSD, acid.'"

These things are nothing whatsoever alike, they're just saying things that they think are scary for some reason. Even the first farking sentence -

"Designer, synthetic drugs such as bath salts, Spice, and Molly are all highly dangerous and addictive"

Umm, no. We don't know the extent of the dangers or addiction potential but there's no good reason to think they are *all* like that. Particularly the cathinones. The cannabinoids are more dangerous than pot, but then a slice of pizza is probably more dangerous than pot.
