Happy Columbus Day. Go get high.

October 9, 2006

So, I was watching the History Channel recently and they said that the only reason that the Spanish sent Columbus to “India” was to bring back opium. The demand for opium was so high – ease pain during medical procedures, getting high, etc — that the Spanish royals were desperate for the stuff. It had become very hard to get and most of Europe was willing to do anything to get the stuff.

Interesting, right?

Happy Columbus Day. I’ll be celebrating at the office…followed by a poppyseed bagel and a hit of smack. Jk.
