Phish + Concerts = Drugs! (duh.)

Well, it beats paying 5 bucks for a balloon of nitrous in
the parking lot that will wear off before you even get through the turnstiles!


According to the Philadelphia
, the 3-night Halloween run in Atlantic City by legendary jam-banders Phish
netted a “Phish Pharmocopeia” for the AC police department. Apparently the cops
confiscated some $278,310 worth of drugs in assorted busts, along with $12,251
in cash related to transactions.


Oops – scratch the first paragraph, above. A detective was
reportedly “assaulted with nitrous oxide” while making an arrest. No word on
exactly what that means, but we presume that he read the arrestees their rights
in a high, squeaky voice. (Hey dude, try Freon next time, if you want to get
that low, authoritative voice on.)



Anyway, here’s the booty that was confiscated, including the
nitrous. What, only 8 valiums?!?


– 70 nitrous oxide tanks.
