Spoons now! What next?†

McDonald's, the international fast food chain, has withdrawn its plastic spoons after fears that drug dealers have been using them to measure out heroin fixes!
Detectives reportedly found the old-style spoons in the homes of suspected drug dealers during a series of raids last week.The spoons hold 100 milligrams of powder, and can therefore be used instead of scales to mix heroin with substances such as glucose or milk powder.Drug dealers are said to favour the spoons because they do not have to carry around sets of scales, which can be incriminating evidence.A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Police, which made the discovery, said: "I can confirm that some of the old-style spoons were found in the homes of suspected drug dealers. Some of the spoons were obtained by police as evidence.A McDonald's spokeswoman said: "There was a design change a few months ago and use by drug dealers was one of the issues we were looking at after consultation with the police."The new stirrers are being phased in over a period of time.Police from Lothian and Borders raided 250 homes during Operation Foil in the Edinburgh area last week, recovering drugs and cash worth more than £500,000, along with guns and stolen property! Will they pull the spoons in our country too?

An Old Hippie Remembers...
I remember the days when we were able to sell parapernaila freely. In the 70's--a great time by the way--you could walk into any of the thousands of Head Shops across this great country and, presto, buy a bong, a water pipe, tooters, vials, scales, nitrous oxide, "legal highs, " coke spoons, etc., ect., etc.I loved crusing down the boardwalk in Ocean City, Md., high as a kite on some really great Columbian and then. .. Whoops! The Old Lady just walked in. Story to be continued.
