Keith Richards decries lack of quality in drugs

Daily Mail
Rolling Stones star gives up drugs - because they're too weak

Rolling Stones star Keith Richards says he has finally given up drugs - because they are too weak to give him a high.

The group's guitarist has complained that modern drugs lack power, claiming that dealers and chemists have reduced their strength.

The 62-year-old former heroin addict told The Sun that modern drugs such as ecstasy "mess with the brain".

He said: "I really think the quality's gone down. All they do is try and take the high out of everything.

"I don't like the way they're working on the brain area instead of just through the blood system.

"That's why I don't take any of them any more. And you're talking to a person who knows his drugs." ...

How much do you want to bet that he couldn't get high off of crack? Richards' problem is that the only way to get anymore density of the chemicals he needs would be for chemists to park the drugs on the event horizon of a blackhole so they could crush a rock of crack down to the side of a few grains of sand (then repeat until they have a new mass the size of the original rock).

I suspect Keith's blood is super saturated. If he were to fall down, he might crystalize out right on the spot ;->
