Rich Smolarek, a pharmacist, said many cough medicines contain dextromethorphan, which in large doses can cause hallucinations and euphoria, often called “robotripping,”

Smolarek said.“DXM toxicity can be fatal and occurs quickly,” Smolarek said.
Yeah, yeah — these guys would be so much more effective if they sounded like they knew what they were talking about. It's like the "one toke and you're addicted" admonition against weed.

Actual journalism without sensationalism doesnt sell papers. Or ads in this case. Plus not getting up-in-arms about drug "abuse" would mean your saying drugs are ok.
