Free Rush Redux! Or, Move Along, Nothing's Up Here….


Conservative crusader and drug law supporter Rush Limbaugh was momentarily back on their bad side–detained at the Palm Beach airport for apparent illegal prescription viagra while returning from the Dominican Republic. His lawyer explained (without apparently naming the embarassing "non-narcotic prescription drug" in question) that the prescription was legit, but in the doctor's name for "privacy purposes."

Jacob Sullum sums up Rush's last lucky break when it comes to violating our nation's sacred drug laws. That excuse probably wouldn't fly for the typical pain drug doc whose sad stories Jacob has often reported on. However, I'm perfectly happy to let it allow the erectile-challenged talk show host remain at large, and trust all citizens of good will shall do the same.
