I’ve made fun of the idiotic notion of a drug free… well… anything, numerous times before.
The idea of a drug-free goal is so laughable that few even bring it up anymore (not just the idea of eliminating all illicit drugs, which is impossible, but what about all the prescription and over the counter drugs..).
Of course, we still have the ridiculous hold-overs from those days — Partnership for a Drug Free America and Drug Free America Foundation are prime examples.
But I recently found an organization name that surprised even me.
I was reading a really bad OpEd (that was crammed full of lies) by Ed Gogek about an Arizona medical marijuana bill. The article mentioned that Gogek, besides being an addiction psychiatrist, was on the steering committee of Keep Arizona Drug Free
Wow. This was really startling. This is no unattainable pipe dream of some future drug free world. They’re saying that they’ve already got it, and they want to keep it.
Who knew? Arizona is drug free.
Makes you wonder, though, what an addiction psychiatrist does there…
