death by poppy sead? yeah.

After watching a fairly disappointing Heroes, the local news was on. I have never been much of a fan for local news reporting because the stories are full of fluff, the outfits are tragic, and the banter between anchors is pretty uncomfortable to watch. Anyway, my disdain aside, I was just too lazy to change the channel and was sucked into a “tragic story.”

A local teenage boy had apparently overdosed and died from drinking poppy seed tea. On the one hand I feel awful for the family and this heart-breaking loss, but on the other hand, this kid was retarded. Maybe I’m cold hearted, but that’s how I see it. If someone makes a normal practice of getting his rocks off jumping off tall buildings, I don’t feel bad when a city worker is power washing his remains off the pavement. The principle is the same.

This little prick had enough audacity and disregard for life that he threw his away to get high. In the interview, the mom reported that she found notes of his about detailed research on how to make the tea and his personal acknowledgements of its danger. The mother noted how smart her son was and that he knew exactly what he was doing.

This post is not about me getting on a soap box in my vintage 5th grade D.A.R.E. T-shirt and denouncing drugs. Because, drugs are fun, and anyone who has done drugs knows this and probably knows the dangers therein. I am just completely disinterested in shedding a tear for a person who wasted their life. There are people all over the world who die from horrible diseases, tragic car accidents, as victims of horrendous crimes, and in hundreds of other ways that are out of their control and definitely aren’t doing drugs.

PS - Any youngsters out there who want to experiment with drugs, what ever happened to good old weed? I'm not condoning it or encouraging anyone to do it, but off all the drugs out there, it is probably your best bet. And the idea that it is gateway is cockamimmy.
