Illustrating the Dangers of Drug Abuse

Two young blokes were picked up by the cops for smoking ganja and appeared in court on last Friday.

The Judge said, "You seem like nice young men, and I'd like to give you a second chance rather than jail time. I want you to go out this weekend and try to show others the evils of drug abuse and get them to give up drugs forever. I'll see you back in court on Monday."

On Monday, the two chaps were back in court, and the judge said to the first one, "How did you do over the weekend?"

"Well, Your Honor, I persuaded 17 people to give up drugs forever."

"17 people? That's wonderful! What did you tell them?"

"I used a diagram, Your Honor. I drew two circles like this:

O o

..and told them that the big circle is your brain before drugs and the small circle is your brain after drugs."

"That's admirable!" said the Judge.

To the second guy the judge said, "And you, how did you do?"

"Well, Your Honor, I persuaded 156 people to give up drugs forever."

"156 people! That's amazing!! How did you manage to do that?"

Well, I used a similar approach. I drew two circles:

o O

...and said (pointing to the small circle), "This is your  asshole  anus before prison....."


1.The Zestzfulness Team confirms:
“Brain scans of 10 men in their mid-20s who had been using Ecstacy for long period found a 10 percent shrinkage in the volume of the hippocampus, the region of the brain responsible for long-term memory”

Still not convinced about the O o effect of drugs, click HERE to read the full report.

2. The Zestzfulness Team apologises for not being allowed to show evidence of the oO effect of drug abuse but you can get a fair idea by clicking HERE

Thank you Chew Wah Yeong for showing us the 'Oos'
