As much as I rail against the media (or the alleged profession?) for their reporting on new psychoactive substances as well as the more established drugs out there, I have to say that I absolutely love this article that appeared on Vox today, titled Imagine if the media covered alcohol like other drugs. It is written by German Lopez (@germanrlopez). I'm not sure it can be considered satire, because it is 100% true.
A fabulous beginning quote from the article:
"The widespread use of a substance called "alcohol" - also known as "booze" - has been linked to erratic and even dangerous behavior, ranging from college students running naked down public streets to brutal attacks and robberies."
Now go read it in its entirety.
