The candy has a dispenser. It is plastic and cheaply made but it looks cute and it's cool because everyone thinks so. It doles out the dope one sweet taste at a time in measured doses that slowly melt in our mouths so we don't overload. The effect is cumulative and we rarely notice.
The Pez has various versions.
Looking at pharmaceutical statistics, which are probably low, we see the Pez dispenser with the most action to be Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen with over 131 million prescriptions a year. That's a lot of dope.
Too much acetaminophen can cause liver damage so the good dope scientists are coming up with a new hydro pill without it that's packing up to 10 times the amount of hydrocodone as existing 'medications' such as Vicodin. It's time released but we're already being informed not to worry because by crushing it we can get the full rush immediately. Since hydros are now being passed around like Pez candy, the lovers of this this type of 'pain relief' are licking their chops in anticipation of the new and improved. Not that hydros can't have legitimate and perhaps positive uses for some folks but I'm looking at a brave new world of getting fucked up for the masses. Forgetting your troubles and cares is getting a powerful makeover. Overdoses create medical industry jobs and thinning the population is a plus so that's not a problem.
It's probably not a coincidence that the announcement of the coming availability of pure hydrocodone coincides with Omega Laboratories, Inc. announcing that it has become the first and only laboratory to receive 510(k) clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Extended Opiates Test that detects the use of Oxycodone and Hydrocodone through human hair analysis. For workplace safety of course and besides that the probation racket will love it. People pay by the week or month for being on probation and drug violations result in sometimes a jail sentence but more often an extension of probation that brings in more cash to the judicial scam.
Feds are buying off the local cops who take their side in the 'fight' against the medical marijuana industry in California so anyone who may benefit from this natural asset continues to be pegged as an enemy of big pharma and unconstitutional federal mandates trying to override state's rights. The government drug runners hate the competition.
A lady in our family is going into the hospital after the first of the year. The doc says it's to get her weaned off of some of the 21 drugs she's now taking daily. The Pez dispenser has been working overtime; Xanax, Paxil, hydros, blood pressure and cholesterol pills, etc. etc. She has been told she's in the early stages of Alzheimer's at 72 years old and has been falling a bit too often and has even been known to fall asleep during phone conversations among other anomalies. Multiple legal drug abuse is killing her. The weaning off some of them will end up just substituting others. Pharma's Pez dispenser won't be emptied, only refilled with different flavors. A joint, a glass of wine and a natural organic diet would probably work better but of course that's not going to happen.
The big Pez dispenser is not just made for dope. It gives us frequency adjustments. As vibrating beings we are certainly affected by specific frequencies that we are inundated with; TV, phones, wi-fi. Perhaps just a little brain damage that keeps us pleasant and compliant, free of worry and anxiety, free of introspection and free of troublesome memories. "But we can't do without these frequency gadgets" the Pez people say. Maybe not but it comes with a price.
Speaking of TV, the media and their handlers want to control their own little Pez dispenser. Daily doses of toxic words and images handed out as candy, repetitive and refilled as needed. The remote has an off button but our fingers don't seem to find it. For many the tube is our only lifelong friend. It's always there for us. No critical thinking necessary.
The Pez dispenser spits out our politicians. Uniform, continuous clones of the last ones. GM corn syrup and additive laden. Deadly and dangerous. Created on the assembly line of the damned. The fluoride water can't wash the taste out of our mouths but we pretend it's just the way it is and there's nothing we can do about it.
The Pez people aren't really dumb. They've just been manipulated and altered to be that way. We do have choices but we sometimes forget what they are and tend to keep pulling the Pez dispenser out of our pocket and flipping the lid out of habit.
They make a good collector's item as a reminder of how we pay for our own poison but perhaps it's time we quit buying the refills. Our mental, physical and political health will be much better off.
