To the editor:
Way to go, Gazette staff! Yet again, you publish something that encourages addictive drug use.

Your article uses phrases such as “Yet, the understanding that someone can transform their psychoactive experience into something profound is evidence that there is, in fact, an upside to drugs.”

Why on God’s green earth would you say something like that unless you’re trying to coerce the naïve student population into doing horrible drugs like marijuana? Shame on you, Gazette staff.

My roommate is an English major, and he recently had writer’s block. After reading your devil-work, he went to the nearest drug dealer and got some drugs.

Obviously, he wrote the most brilliant essays I’ve ever read, but now he’s an addict. He can’t stop. I had to call his parents so they could get him into detox in the makeshift rubber room in their basement. What is this world coming to with fanatics like you out there?
