Why, in his day, cocaine came in little curvy soda bottles, and heroin? Heroin could be bought 20 cents a pound in the Sears Roebuck catalouge!

Unless you're here to buy hard drugs, get off my lawn!

I just want to "wander off" and be found driving around Iowa in somebody's car once they put me in the home. Everyone will think it's cute how the old guy does that.

Actually he was 42 when the Soviet Union collapsed, 33 when Family Ties first aired, 23 last time man walked on the moon, and cocaine had been illegal for 35 years before he was born.

Good to know! I'll keep that in mind for my golden years

Eh. They're all really old and almost dead. Let them do drugs.

I don't know what would be worse in a nursing home?  Drug sales/use...or the rampant merry-go-round of STD's??

Even an old-age home could be fun if you were high all the time.  With a decent set of speakers in your room, indulgent nurses, and deaf neighbours of course.

Well it's not like 85 year old Mabel is gonna be out jacking cars, robbing gas stations or breaking into houses. If she has the money and wants a speed ball, I say go for it.

Sunny, don't you mean especially if it involves cocaine and black tar heroin?
 
2017-07-29 11:14:29 PM  
You do not want to know what your parents/grandparents do behind closed doors.  No seriously a bunch of my relatives have worked in nursing homes and the stories they tell.

Personally it is cool as far as I am concerned, you might as well have some freaky fun if you want before you die as long as it is all consensual.

This - why the hell should the decrepit and dying be denied the pleasure and relief of drugs at this point in their lives? What social purpose is served by that?

Your typo is so fitting for any Fark thread!
:)

Also, am I the only person who did at last one double-take confirming this wasn't the Florida tag??
Come on!

Hey, deny enough drugs and pallative care to dying people so they may "glorify their suffering", and they make you a saint:

Even if they're only sort of old and not almost dead, I'd be behind that.

Call it 18 for tobacco, 21 for alcohol, 65 for cocaine. Following the same rules, the people in the supply chain down to the clerk who rings up your purchase would have to be of age. Solve unemployment among seniors with the stroke of a pen.

I started to read the headline as a "Downtown" song parody, and was sad when it didn't wind up that way.

police seized about $20,000 worth of cocaine, black tar heroin and marijuana from his vehicle and apartment
Police also seized $471 from Daniels they believe are proceeds from drug sales


$471? He must not be a very good salesman.
