“I am on a drug. It’s called … Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and children will weep over your exploded body. Too much? I woke up and decided I’ve been kicked around, I’ve been criticized, I’ve been the aww shucks guy with this bitchin’ rock star life and I’m finally going to completely embrace it. I’m gonna wrap both arms around it and love it violently.”
—Charlie Sheen talks to “20/20″ about his recent woes, and rants lots more about “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre and CBS, who he says he plans to sue for canceling his show for the remainder of the season. All I have to say is—whoa, dude. That is too much.
After the jump, Charlie on “The Today Show,” for more good-time lunacy. Keep reading »

If you think those bath salts in your bathroom are just for relaxing after a long day, you are mistaken. Officials have released a warning that bath salts are the hot new drug of choice and many cities are trying to put a ban on them. The fragrant crystals can be smoked, snorted, or mainlined, and induce a comparable high to cocaine or meth. Side effects include euphoria, extreme energy, hallucinations, paranoia, psychosis, delusions, insomnia, suicidal thoughts, chest pains, heart attacks, strokes, and smelling good. Other signs that a loved one may be using; they spend an awful of time taking baths and never seem all that clean, but emerge from the bathroom looking insane. Packets of bath salts go for $25 – $40 on the black market, I mean any drug store. But what about those of us who just want to take a bath? [KTLA] Keep reading »

Sometimes scandal comes from the most unlikely of places. Like, say, a jam cruise featuring little-remembered “American Idol” Taylor Hicks? Hicks was set to perform, along with The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir and Maceo Parker, on the six-day “Bonnaroo at Sea” to the Caribbean. But then federal agents raided the ship before it even set sail and seized marijuana, LSD, mushrooms, hash oil, Ecstasy, and prescription drugs, along with drug paraphernalia. After the raid, the ship was allowed to leave port and it’s unclear whether any charges were pressed against any of the performing musicians. Who knew that the gray-haired Joe Cocker sound-a-like would be the biggest partier of ‘em all? [Spinner] Keep reading »

Time to stock up on the Horny Goat Weed instead, you guys! (Just kidding.) The FDA issued a warning on Wednesday for Man Up Now, a “dietary supplement for men’s sexual arousal” because it could dangerously lower blood pressure. Although Man Up Now capsules market themselves as “all natural” and “herbal,” they contain an active drug found in Viagra called sulfoaildenafil. Sulfoaildenafil can cause blood pressure to plummet through the carpet and make you dizzy and lightheaded. So stop operating heavy machinery, you randy little minxes, and ditch your Man Up Now pills immediately, per FDA request. Keep reading »
