Healthy Betch: Weed Might Actually Fuck With Your Brain and Other Health News

Pregnant women are hopped up on narcos

New research shows that doctors are prescribing opioid painkillers to pregnant women all the fucking time these days.

That said, betches don’t really do “emotions” unless we’re blackout so that one doesn’t really apply to us. In terms of motivation, well, you got us there. Now if only I could “motivate” my dealer into texting me back a little quicker… Read article >>
