    "Cocaine", the drink


    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ It's the State of Connecticut versus Cocaine. Not the drug, but the drink. State officials have seized hundreds of cases of the energy drink called Cocaine. The state maintains Cocaine doesn't list the sources of water used in the drink, as required by law. The company that produces Cocaine charges they're being singled out for enforcement of an obscure state law. Connecticut officials have blasted the drink, saying it glamorizes the use of drugs with slogans like "Speed in a Can" and "Cocaine _ Instant Rush." The drink's bottler maintains it contains nothing illegal is actually part of an anti-drug message.

    "The drink's bottler maintains it contains nothing illegal is actually part of an anti-drug message."

    Think of all the poor cocaine addicts who buy the drink on the assumption that it contains cocaine! They should sue the bottler for false advertising.

    it must be nice in their world

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I'd have to agree with the company. They most likely are being singled out by an obscure state law.
