A Colorado man arrested this week in connection to running a meth lab in his garage reportedly told police that he was making a “healthy meth substance” since it contained acai berries. Craig William Rogers, of Longmont, is now facing numerous charges, including unlawful distribution, manufacturing and dispensing of a controlled substance, according to the Colorado Daily. The newspaper, citing an affidavit, reported that police discovered the alleged operation Tuesday after acting on a tip – and once they tracked down the 49-year-old, he claimed his brand of the drug was a “healthy meth substance.” “No amount of meth is safe, whether it has a berry in it or not,” Longmont Police Deputy Chief Jeff Satur told the Colorado Daily. “It’s a highly addictive, life-destroying drug.” Satur also said investigators found a “berry-like substance” inside the lab. Court records viewed by the newspaper show that Rogers was released Wednesday on a $15,000 bond.
Normally we don’t post the local crime beat. But, in this case we’ll make an exception because it illustrates just how dumb some people are, and where we’re going as a society. Idiots like this are out there convincing others that their fruity version of meth is “healthy,” and there are apparently enough brain trusts out there who will actually fall for that. Be afraid..
