Drugs ain't dope

Drugs ain't dope
Drugs have robbed music of its greatest talents such as Elvis Presley, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain (pictured here), Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.

I hate the fact that drugs are so closely associated with music.

Drugs killed six people at the Future Music Festival Asia in Kuala Lumpur, with many more being taken to hospital, including a bunch of Singaporeans.

The same weekend that we got this news from Malaysia, there was another incident, in Indonesia. Drugs killed a Singaporean and two others in Jakarta, at a fest known as A State Of Trance.

This is unspeakably sad.

These folks were trying to have a little fun and adventure, and they ended up paying with their lives.

It doesn't have to be this way.

Anyone who loves music should actually HATE drugs.
