St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! Although I am not Irish I always make it a tradition to drink a pint of Guiness on St. Patrick's Day. Guiness is my favorite beer and I love the festive traditions associated with St. Patrick's Day.
According to an article in the Dec. 13 Journal Sentinel cue section it is ok to start taking mind-altering drugs again. ( "Turn On, Tune In and Get Better?", by Melissa Healy of the Los Angeles Times.) I have never used these drugs (and never will) but I felt compelled to set the record straight. These drugs are extremely dangerous and have no medical value. Rather than offering legitimacy to their use, the Journal Sentinel should be warning the public about how dangerous these drugs are.
