This is why we need to give MORE power to the government.

Urban Outfitters started selling a coffee mug (see link) that looked like a prescription bottle, stating that it had caffeine and to "refill when empty". 22 State Attorneys General got together and sent a letter to them that said "Stop it right now. For the sake of humanity, cease and desist!" Here is the letter- On behalf of the undersigned Attorneys General, we request that Urban Outfitters immediately cease sales of your “Prescription Line” of glasses, coasters, mugs, drink holders and related products that mimic prescription pill bottles and prescription pads. As you may be aware, there is a national health crisis related to the abuse and diversion of prescription drugs. As Attorneys General, we have prosecuted and engaged in outreach to stop this epidemic. We are actively engaged in a campaign of environmental change to educate the public that abuse of prescription drugs is not safe simply because the medication originated from a doctor. By putting these highly recognizable labels on your products you are undermining our efforts. These products demean the thousands of deaths that occur each month in the United States from accidental overdoses. These products are not in any way fun or humorous but make light of this rampant problem. We invite you to pull these products from your shelves and join with us to fight prescription drug abuse. ----- We spend billions keeping these fucking morons in office, and THIS is the shit they are concerned with? REALLY? Our government is as fucked up as it is evil.
