So anyone who knows me probably knows that I have a deep-seated hate for drug use as a form for recreation. It’s something I’ve never done, but I’ve had friends in the past that have and I’ve lost friends in the past that have.
That’s not my way of saying that I lost them because I didn’t approve of their choices… I lost them because their choices resulted in a loss of their ability to function as humans… wait that sounds wrong, I’m trying to find a nice way to say that I know people who have died from the result of drugs, without actually saying it, didn’t succeed I guess and so I had to say it anyway.
Now I know that last paragraph makes it sound like I’m on drugs, but I’m not, I swear. Just sometimes my mind gets a little muddled when I think about things.
So anyway. I felt that as I have just sat through and watched the entire first season of “Weeds” all pretty much in one sitting, I should preface a blog entry about it by saying that I’m one of the “Just Say No” camp.
But having gotten that out of the way I do have to say that Weeds, the TV show, is quite a good show. It’s well done and well thought out. Who knew you could make a whole show about a single mother selling drugs to keep her family afloat after the untimely death of her husband.
