Some friends and I were reminiscing about all the great halloween candy we got when we were young. Some one mentioned they didn't sell candy cigarettes to children anymore and I was shocked.
When I was young, not only did we have candy cigarettes and bubble gum cigars, we had sugar syrup filled heroine needles with bubble gum tourniquet.
Cotton candy flavored juice bong.
Sugar powder cocaine. (I can see why this was taken off the market. Most kids snorted the sugar when they were supposed to just eat it.)
My generation grew up with all these and we turned out just fine! Only 12% of my friends are hooked on drugs (the non-candy kind) now. You can't beat those odds!
