Rob Ford Crack Case File #429

There was a good Fifth Estate episode about the Ford affair on friday, and it’s now online. The followup post from the ‘broker’ of the crack tape is also key. Here is what Rob Ford can expect in rehab – a moving piece from someone who has experienced it. But lest we get carried away in our sympathy, we should deconstruct his fiscal record. Also: will Rob Ford give crackheads a better name? Somehow I doubt it. I’m not sure on that article’s claims about crack’s exaggerated dangers (there are no studies on many illegal drugs because it would be illegal to do so), but who knows.
