I guess this really shouldn’t be surprising, but according to a study at Connecticut College, Oreos are as addictive as cocaine. I guess now I sort of have an excuse for the occasional night spent going through an entire box of them in front of Netflix on my couch.
Jamie Honohan, a neuroscience senior at the college, created the study to research the effects of high-fat and high-sugar foods in neighborhoods with low socioeconomic statuses. In the study, hungry rats were put through a maze in with an Oreo on one side and a rice cake on the other side. Rats preferred the Oreo (shocking, I know), and even tended to eat the cream filling first like (most, I would presume) humans do. Keep reading »
“Weed is the best drug on earth … One time I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon … Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And Molly, too.

British model Cara Delevinge allegedly dropped a baggie of cocaine in front of paparazzi this weekend. (A model allegedly doing cocaine? Nooooooooooooo…. ) The UK’s Sun newspaper published pics of the beauty fumbling for her keys in front of her apartment and accidentally dropping a thin plastic baggie filled with a white substance on the ground. Blabbed a paparazzo to the Sun:
“She was really giggly. She found it hilarious but her friend was really edgy about it. Suddenly Cara dropped something and bent over to pick it up. Very discreetly, she just put her foot on it and then rolled her handbag across so it looked like she was just kind of bending over. The friend kept saying, ‘Can you stop taking pictures?’ The friend definitely realised they were in trouble once that little packet had dropped on the ground.”
The alleged cocaine pics are pretty damning for the 20-year-old, who has modeled for Victoria’s Secret’s PINK line, Lanvin, and Versace, and is the face of H&M’s Divided line. But hey, maybe she carries around baking soda everywhere to, uh, brush her teeth? One thing is for sure: She might be “the next Kate Moss” (in more ways than one), but she’s also a butterfingers.
