I wouldn’t recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they’ve always worked for me. —Hunter S. Thompson
Why is it that the people who are most against drugs are the ones who almost drive me to do them? Apparently there is a new drug hysteria brought on by the fact that Oklahoma thinks everyone in their band and other after-school activities is on crack. I remember when I was in High School, the joke went like this:
Did you hear that 80% of high school students are sexually active?
Yeah. The other 20% are in the band.
Apparently now they are smoking rock and shooting up. I did a google search for ‘drug fiending tuba players,’ and came up with nothing, so I am not sure how serious the problem really is, but I do know one thing- I would have had to have been stoned to the bejeezus to ever have anything to do with the band when I was in high school.
I spent several years working with people in the Education Department of a prominent university. You should hear some of the off-the -wall, hare-brained teaching strategies they teach prospective teachers to go out and inflict on our youth. No wonder they need an escape. Then again, half the students could be self-medicating themselves, trying to find some balance between all the ritalin and other crap all the fruity bastards in psychiatry are forcing the kids to take.
Hell, I need a stiff drink after listening to this pro drug testing nanny on MSNBC.
Our country does have a serious drug problem. It is our drug policy.
