Georgetown drug lab busted

A drug lab was discovered in a Georgetown dorm.

Some students at Georgetown University are trying to understand how someone could have operated a drug lab in a dorm room at the school.

"I would understand if someone got caught doing it. Making it, that's different. It's shocking," 19-year-old sophomore Gina Park told the Washington Post.

Saturday morning two Georgetown University students and a campus visitor - all male - were arrested in connection to a suspected drug lab found inside a dormitory, said D.C. Metro Officer police said. All are at least 18.

They are facing charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, said Officer Hugh Carew, a police spokesman.  None were identified.

Police received a call shortly before 6 a.m. about a foul odor at Georgetown's Harbin Hall. Initially, police thought the lab was for producing meth, but later said it was used to make Dimethyltryptamine, a hallucinogenic drug commonly known as DMT.  FULL STORY

    @ Iron Chef: Whomever blamed Affirmative Action for this should have their 1st amendment rights removed. I suggest an IQ test for people before they are allowed to speak. It wouldn't solve all problems but it would take a big chunk of morons out of the equation.
