Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

It's 2008, and I'm watching Lisa Ling talk about the dangers of drugs. I did this fifteen years ago, except it wasn't meth then.

The National Geographic "meth map" shows the drug starting in Oregon and spreading east... but for whatever reason, it seems to have skipped Wisconsin. Eh, they're always behind on fads.

Also they discussed a couple of kids in suburban Omaha that got in trouble with the police for meth use. The kids lived on Pacific Avenue. Maybe truth-in-advertising laws should apply to street naming: if this problem goes unchecked then developers will start slapping down Pine Valley Lanes in the Australian outback.

Now she's going undercover in Thailand. This is just like the time she went undercover in Singapore to investigate that guy getting caned. Apparently there are lots of drug users in Thailand and the government doesn't treat them very well. Who would've guessed?

Looks like there isn't going to be a Stephanie Tanner interview. Oh well, she seems to have cleaned up a little. (I'd like to make some sort of joke involving "Full Blouse" but I can't figure out how to make it work. I'm losing it, man, I'm losing it.)
