Are you better off dead than high?

That’s the subtitle of this excellent article in Psychology Today: Tylenol and the War on Drugs

The article starts off about the recent realization by the FDA that pharmaceutical policy was setting people up to die of liver disease if they overused Vicodin, because it is intentionally laced with acetaminophen.

It goes on to logically tie that to the intentional poisoning of alcohol during Prohibition 1.

This is clearly the domain of the sado-moralist. They’re always around making sure that people get harmed rather than high.
