HERSHEYS COCAINE MINTS…?

No wonder they are so addictive…

The Hershey Co. is halting production of Ice Breakers Pacs in response to criticism that the mints look too much like illegal street drugs, the company’s president and chief executive officer said Thursday.

Hershey CEO David J. West disclosed the decision during a conference call about the company’s newly released fourth-quarter earnings report.

Ice Breakers Pacs, which first hit store shelves late last year, are nickel-sized dissolvable pouches with a powdered sweetener inside. The pouches come in blue or orange and bear the Ice Breakers logo.

Members of Philadelphia’s police narcotics squad said the mints closely resembled tiny heat-sealed bags used to sell powdered street drugs. They charged that the consequences could be serious if, for example, a child familiar with the mints found a package of cocaine.

“Some community and law-enforcement leaders have expressed concern” about the shape of pouch and the Xylitol sweetener inside, and about the possibility of the mints being mistaken for illegal substances, West said.

“We are sensitive to these viewpoints and thus have made the decision that we will no longer manufacture Icebreakers Pacs,” he said.

Ice Breakers Pacs currently on store shelves are expected to be sold out early this year and no more are being made, West said. Kirk Saville, a company spokesman, said they had been distributed nationally on a limited basis.

Hershey has said the mints were not intended to resemble anything.

Philadelphia police Chief Inspector William Blackburn, an outspoken critic of the mints, was in a meeting and not immediately available for comment, a spokeswoman in his office said.

WEEDS(Gangsta Tv IN the Burbs)

weedsOk i cant lie i do like marijuana! She just makes me relax and feel at peace with my self.One thing though is that im embarrased or ashamed of it oh yes im also paranoid.See growing up most of us got told about the “bad” things weed does to you…you go crazy you become a thief and the list is endless.Then we are made to hate people who use because they just fit in.But with me i i got attracted to it…you know what they say, “forbidden fruit tastes sweetest!”.And yes it surely does coz aint nunn like getting stoned in a cool calm place as you do something you like ,like for my instance watch an oddly funny series that defies normality: Showtime’s Weeds.

I had never heard of it but when i found my neighbour with it i decided that i was going to watch it as i got my two joints last cold ass rainy night.

Funny from scratch,this is how the theme goes:

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same,
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

And the people in the houses
All went to the university
Where they were put in boxes
And they came out all the same
And there’s doctors and lawyers
And business executives
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.
