Re: "The world of illicit drugs," Jan. 16

To the Editor:

Your article on drugs lacked many important facts, and skewed others. Since when is a dime bag 10 grams? And what tool came to Western only to get into heroin, but couldn't figure out how to use a freakin' needle to shoot up?

Thank God this article came along; now this retard won't endanger himself when he attempts to enjoy one of the world's most deadly street drugs. When trying to decipher the hazy objective of this article, I was left with no choice but to dismiss it as a serious guide to important drug facts, as Matt Tobey already illustrated.

So I'm left with this feeling that the article was motivated by the "Hey, let's get mildly shocking and talk about drugs like we're all cool" mentality, which to me was so much cooler in Grade 11.

But please, prove me wrong. Are there people out there that "say yes," but only finally figured out how to purchase and smoke weed thanks to this article?
