I Would've Expected the Editor to Catch That

From an article on a dangerous new drug which is still being sold legally [emphasis mine]:
Sarah first bought the drug ten months ago after she read on an online forum that it could help with weight loss.
[...]
Within months of taking her first hit, their happy, healthy, newlywed daughter had become a paranoid, aggressive agoraphobic, insomniac. She dropped from a size 16 to a size six.

If the goal of the article was to frighten people away from using the drug, maybe they should've skipped the part about what a phenomal weight-loss product it is.

  1. Now that I've read the article, the product states clearly "Not Safe for Human Consumption," yet the woman took it anyway. It sucks that she died, but the blame lies solely on her.
