    Very descriptive writing. Reader is following a train wreck, as the writer pursues a myriad of legal highs.

    "Nice historical insight"
    5/5, 5 out of 5, reviewed Mar 16, 2017
    I think this story is a good read as well as good historical insight into how people a decade back dealt with the opiate trade.

    Perhaps add an italic disclaimer to the start or end of the news story noting that this piece, though over a decade old, is of historic value.

    "Outdated"
    2/5, 2 out of 5, reviewed Mar 16, 2017
    This article is seriously outdated. Ebay hasn't allowed the sale of pods in years.

    I have a hard time believing that the author drank 200 pods' worth of tea in one sitting. That is an insane amount, even for someone with a tolerance.

      How is this even a review? Of course the article is outdated its from 2005.

      Please stop reviewing my articles, each time you split hairs over a small detail and it is borderline trolling.
