Everybody is jumping on the "bath salts" issue, although a couple of months ago the same people were talking about "spice". Senator Ritchie holds a town hall meeting on the issue on Monday.
I like to listen to people on the front lines who aren't in a special interest group, so I was pleased to hear from 'Gun Nut" on the show today. He told me in his job the new designer drugs are rampant and the cure may not be more laws and more doors kicked down.
Gun Nut tells me the demand for these products comes from people who have nothing they care about. No careers, no ambition, no hobbies, no spritual framework, no nothing. The threats to 'cuff and stuff' don't seem to hit home, he says, just like the guy in the paper today with his sixth DWI....
People with no initiative...no moral underpinnings..no sense of shame are ripe for the latest bout of escapism.
Instead, we will get a new law named after someone who had their face gnawed off by someone on bath salts.
And so it goes.
