Protip: If you're going to cook a pill, any pill, so as to inject it:

1) Reconsider strongly what you are going to do - it's not very smart no matter how you prep it.
2) Filter the solution. Lots of organic chemistry stuff available online for your safety and enjoyment.
3) Consider an organic chemistry course in college. Attend the labs.
4) Do not watch Mad Men reruns.

Colorado is working on it for marijuana. They appear to be taking a careful, considered approach and I'm going to bet this is the framework for all sorts of 'bad for you but good for the economy' things to wander down the pike.

This country is looking like something out of a Robert Heinlein novel. Where's The Prophet?

Ahh, the soft empathic voice of Slashdot.....

TLDR; this is an incredible dumbass drug. They take codeine, which apparently is easier to get than heroin Russia, run it through some Mad Men style kitchen chemistry, don't really bother filtering it, don't have a clue about what they made then... wait for it... inject it. Bypassing every single organismal defense mechanism save for the few remaining T-cells that the user's bone marrow has scrounged up.

Violence will ensue....

That sounds useful - Sandy had a 13 foot storm surge.

When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a data center on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest data center in all New York.

Cars should have this! There is no good reason to lean forward and touch a screen to adjust the volume and skip a track. If we had gestures in cars that would be a real breakthrough.

Let's think this one through, AC.

Imagine going down your typical American freeway, surrounded by barely controlled four ton (3600 kg) home entertainment centers at 70 mph (110 km/hr for the rest of you). Now, imagine, if you will, that same freeway with half the 'drivers' gesticulating wildly trying to get the last Justin Bieber track to play again.

Violence will ensue.
