it was only a matter of time until someone capitalized off of the hysteria, other than the US Govt. It’s still hard to imagine a fiend running up, saying “you got that Ebola?” I don’t recall there ever being packs of dope labeled “AIDS” when that was the national hysteria, but you know….I may be wrong.
There are so many different ways to go with this but since it seems Wayne has been pretty sober since his release I will leave it alone.

Earth to drug dealers — Google is watching!
Three brazen heroin dealers were captured in Google Street View images working their favorite Brooklyn drug corner, where they peddled their product to hipsters and other dope fiends, law-enforcement sources said yesterday.
Multiple images captured along Jackson Street and Kingsland Avenue by the search engine’s ubiquitous camera car show the trio milling about in front of the Neighborhood Grocery — one of two East Williamsburg bodegas where they set up shop.

JANUARY 23–Add heroin to the scores of products that have been branded with President Barack Obama’s name. Cops in upstate New York this week broke up a drug ring that allegedly sold heroin under several brand names, including “Obama.”
As seen in Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office photos, the president’s surname was stamped in red ink on small glassine wrappers that were peddled by street dealers. Investigators arrested five suspects for their alleged roles in the narcotics distribution activity. The branding of illicit drugs is a favorite of pushers, who have previously sold bin Laden heroin, Harry Potter Ecstasy, bricks of Teletubbies cocaine, and green-tinted crack in recognition of St. Patrick’s Day.
This should be a lesson to the dangers of popping pills of any kind. Though pill use is still glamorized in movies and music it is still deadly habit, just ask the family of Heath Ledger. The story below reads like a afterschool special. Sad Indeed.
YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) — A 12-year-old girl died of a methadone overdose after taking pills she bought from a 15-year-old boy, authorities said.
The boy has been charged as a juvenile with criminally negligent homicide, criminal sale of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child, his lawyer said Wednesday.
The boy took the pills – knowing what they were – from his father’s drawer March 10 and brought them to the girl, Dana Marie Regan, police youth investigator Charles Lopez testified Wednesday in Family Court in Westchester County. Methadone is best known as a prescription drug that curbs heroin addiction, but it increasingly is prescribed as a painkiller.
Lopez said the boy told him he and a male friend each took two pills, and Dana downed about four. The boy told Lopez he soon felt sick and went home, leaving Dana with his friend, the investigator testified.
The girl was found dead the next day.
