The paranoia that comes with dope smoking can make a susceptible person think that he or his religion has all of the answers.
Yeesh. If this Twinkie defense is the best anyone can come up with, then he's pretty well ****ed. And yes, in fact, that may well be the best anyone can come up with and he probably is ****ed. I certainly hope he is at any rate...
