    It probably didn't help that CNN reported a bunch of girls being drugged without their knowledge. Just my opinion. I know a lot of outrage over this case was because of the publicity regarding passed out girls being schmexually assaulted.

    Unreal. Start banning products in a free market society, and where does it end? WA state is as backwards as they come, what an embarrasment to the rest of the nation.
