L.A. County Supervisor Michael Antonovich is angry that his county's Public Health Department is distributing a flyer that might actually improve public health by giving sensible advise about how not to get ill when using street ecstasy:
Antonovich said the flier, created after a 15-year-old girl died of an Ecstasy overdose after attending a Coliseum rave last June, did not fit the spirit of the county's anti-drug policy.
"Counseling young people on the use of the illegal drug Ecstasy is stupid and contrary to Los Angeles County's zero-tolerance policy on drugs," Antonovich said in a statement.
The "spirit of the country's anti-drug policy": f**k off and die, druggie, and if you don't, you're under arrest!
The offending flyer.:
The L.A. Weekly also gets snide about the flyers, part of their larger attempt at a repeat performance of their last unfortunate success in goading local authorities into unnecessary and damaging actions regarding a non-crisis involving ILLEGAL DRUGS!!!!!! and the fiends who use them.
The Drug Policy Alliance defends the flyer.
