This is your brain on drugs, continued....

Eight people have been arrested for being with swimmer Michael Phelps when he hit the bong seen 'round the world. Talk continues about what criminal charges will be brought against the Olympics star himself, although even the governor of South Carolina says charging him is senseless.

WB suggests that, in solidarity with the Phelps Eight, the eighty million Americans who have also hit the bong at some point in their lives—including the last three U.S. presidents—step forward and insist on being charged, tried, and jailed. With one state, California, having been ordered this week to release 40 percent of its prisoners from already-overcrowded facilities, law enforcement and the judicial system would crash under the weight and tell everyone to just go home and stop being silly.

And that's our point.
