Yet Another Reason to Keep the Word of Wisdom

A reader passed along a news report (in German) about the town of Lazaret near Gjirokaster in Albania. It seems that the major industry in the town is growing marijuana. The news report is that the entire town got stoned and about 700 people (mostly women but also children) are suffering from Cannabisvergiftung ("cannabis poisoning"). The comments on the article sound typically European with heavy doses of denial. I suppose this is what a "victimless" crime looks like.
