Or maybe it’s just one of your holiday games. Pharmaceutical companies spend small fortunes testing names of new drugs on panels to see if they sound “trustworthy” and “effective.” But who names street drugs?
By now you may have heard that the horrific Miami “cannibal” case was linked to a new street drug (which is still legal in some states) called, improbably, Bath Salts. Really? I mean, really? Who names these things? Crack, crank, X, smack . . . most of those I get. At least they’re easy to say. But Bath Salts? Especially for an amphetamine drug that makes you aggressive, paranoid, and crazy?
