No, That AIN'T Dope!!

I'm so sick of hearing kids, and young adults, say, "That's DOPE!" when they're talking about something they think is cool or good or amazing! Dope ain't good, cool or amazing; it's stupid, asinine, deadly and the furthest thing from cool there can be! Somewhere along the 80s people started using words that were the opposite of what they meant, trying to change the meaning of the word, I guess. Like saying something was wicked meant that it was good, or pure. But, the thing is, youngsters hearing someone say something's dope when they're referring to something being cool or good makes them think when someone talks about dope that dope must be cool and good, so they have no fear of trying drugs for the first time.

It's time we get back to saying what we mean and meaning what we say. After all, why do you they call it dope, DOPE?
