First off, I should say that ThePodcaste.com does not advocate the abuse of any drugs, legal or illegal and we’ve been vocal about how smoking ANYTHING is technically bad for you. That being said, we’ve lost Heath Ledger, Michael Jackson and now Prince to prescription medication and yet our parent’s generation still have The Eagles, The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney! WHAT THE #$%#!? Those guys don’t even remember the 70s they were so high, yet gen X role models and pop stars are dropping like flies!
Remember in the 1990s when the headline “Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong Dead of Marijuana Overdoses” hit all the papers? Neither do I. I, personally, have never smoked a blunt but I’m really warming up to the ‘legalize it’ crowd because this is seeming crazier and crazier to support FDA approved heroine while tossing pot-heads in jail. Even cocaine doesn’t doesn’t make peoples heart popped the way prescription uppers have done to so many!
I have no point in this but to vent my frustration to the news. Rest In Peace, Prince.
