Heroin for Dummies...for DUMMIES

My personal favorite: "Don't always inject in the same spot" (I mean really don't we all know that already?! Isn't that why some addicts go as far as to inject in their necks, feet, and/or genetalia?!)

So I was in the waiting room with my pops, and CNN was doing a spotlight on a
"This is what you need to be doing" guide (Take Charge Take Care) for heroin. I'm sitting there saying to pops, "what do you mean a proper way to use heroin?!" He just laughed and continued to read the Sports Illustrated from 2006. I'm telling you, this pamphlet would not escape my mind. I did some research and found out that $32,000 of taxpayers' money was spent to create the 70,000 copies that would be for distribution. I'm not even gonna go there about how this is absurd on so many different levels but let me just say that... my homegirl who works in the field of drug abuse/HIV ironically makes this salary!!!

Not only that, but what user you know is gonna sit there and fully read this pamphlet, hightlight important sections, and let it marinate?! You also mean to tell me that the drug dealers are gonna inlude this in the nickel and dime bags letting their customers know that "Look you better read this guide cuz if you OD, your family better not come after me cuz it ain't my fault you ain't read the guide!" Um right!

I don't give a flyin you know what if the guide is meant to limit the startling amount of overdoses from the smack. Guidebook or not, at the end of the day you still using heroin!

PS- check out the full pamphlet here and drop some words on the blog

Grindin in Twenty Ten

I know. Where has this woman been?! Let me just make it clear to everyone that post grad life is like a sink but instead of water going down the drain, my energy by the gallons does this. It's leaky, but I refuse to fix it only because those drops go towards the blog. More on this transition in a future post.


Here's a video from one the dopest panel discussions that I missed in December because i decided to wait last minute to purchase a ticket!!! ARGH!!!!!! March looks like it will be a lovely month for music...
