Double Stuff You Need To Know About, But Don't Tell The DEA

The Detroit Free Press: Oreos are as addictive as cocaine, study says

You may feel downright criminal the next time you eat an Oreo, and you have a Connecticut College student to thank for that.

Neuroscience major Jamie Honohan came up with the idea for a study, which dug into the effects of high-fat and high-sugar foods on the brain. The conclusions: The brain goes wilder for Oreos than for drugs, and the two are equally addictive — at least when it comes to rats.

Ah, science!

In any case and for the record, I absolutely oppose any attempt to have Oreos listed as a Schedule 2 drug.

If you think scenes from Breaking Bad were hardcore, wait until they start large scale home-cooking up batches of Oreos and require photo ID for purchases of flour, sugar, and other good stuff.
