How To Thrive In A Drug Obsessed Culture

The man who wrote Drugs, Kids & Crime: Surviving Our Drug Obsessed Culture has figured out how to thrive in such a culture. At least for a while.

Kendall Craig Farris' website is filled with influential endorsements for the drug prevention program he founded. Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl called them "amazing tools which our schools and communities desperately need" and thanked Farris for meeting with him and his staff.

Something went wrong, however, and Farris was arrested Thursday at a Starbucks in El Segundo after Redondo Beach police set up a drug buy over the phone.

Farris, 47, arrived at the coffeehouse in a taxi, police said. An undercover officer gave him an envelope containing $480 in exchange for methamphetamine and ecstasy tablets, which turned out to be fake, authorities said. Farris was arrested at 3:40 p.m.
Isn't selling fake illegal drugs a violation of the Semi-Pure Food and Drug Act? I would hope so.

Well any way, maybe it is time he wrote a sequel. "Adults, Drugs, and Crime: Avoid Getting Caught".

For what it's worth, the economic hole we've dug; where governments are looking to expand their tax base, will, perhaps, one day also eliminate costs.

In other words, prison space out the yazoo takes big bucks to keep up. Fewer inmates, though, would equal less costs.

So, I'll venture to guess that up ahead "drugs" are gonna get taxed. And, to do that? Drugs, just like gay-ness before it, will toodle out of the closet.

We've got a crazy society, though. We've exported all the jobs men did, where they didn't need to read or write. And, instead, we validated becoming a nation of consumers.

Well, we consume drugs; so on that score, alone, I see a change ahead.

Working heavy machinery? Not very likely, ahead, due to where we've spread out all those manufacturing jobs.
