The band’s management wants him to handle his alcohol and drug issues, and has plans to replace him. There’s no question that he’s got a problem – let’s hope he takes this opportunity to get into an alcohol and drug addiction rehabilitation program so he doesn’t just fall off the map as a musician.

Less that 90 Days in Drug Rehab Has Limited Effectivness

Posted under Drug Rehab, Opiates

Drugabuse.gov says drug rehab that lasts less than 90 days is of “limited effectiveness” and “treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.” Nevertheless, the current trend is toward treatment that lasts less than 90 days—even when it’s sponsored by the same government that made that statement.

Jail Isn’t the Answer, But Does That Make Being Stoned Okay?

Posted under Colorado, Legal Issues, Marijuana, THC

Colorado’s first annual report on marijuana shows the state sold 4.8 million edible marijuana products—some for medical use, and some for recreation. Nearly enough for one for every person in the state. Oh, wait, more than 2.25 million of Colorado’s 5+ million people are under 21 and can’t legally buy the stuff. So, that means there were enough edible marijuana products for everyone to have two!

And when you consider that only 67 of Colorado’s 321 jurisdictions opted in to allowing retail or medical sales of marijuana, that decreases the number even further. So … let’s just say that quite a few people in Colorado got stoned last year. more…
