I'm not sure anything is "sobering" anymore. I think for the most part everyone is well aware of how really un-fucking-Disney it is outside. There's probably about 1 to 3 million NY'ers getting high at some point within the next 24 hours, maybe even people on your staff. It's everywhere. Nobody wants to admit fault that they are directly responsible for the chaos of Central and part of Latin America. Either everybody acknowledges their drug use and consumption and contacts and we figure out an "American" way to get our fix without causing strife pretty damn soon Or we keep hearing about beheaded bodies dumped on highways as they continue their drug wars of rivals fighting over who gets the american cash. You know whenever ya'll buy blunts underage in the bodegas, they dont ID, cos they know you and the american youth has and is still killing itself. And they took your money. I smoke pot, but i grow it and i dont believe in legalising it either. Prefer it to be a crime, because it shows its consequences (I know the prison system is fucked, im talking in a new spirit) So you wanna do drugs. Fine. I found mine. Find your Drug of choice and do it in a manner that doesnt fuel inter-continental druglords and lead to civil divisions in our or any other nation and you'll have solved the drug problem.
