A $509,840 taxpayer-funded grant by the National Institutes of Health will pay for a study encouraging gay methamphetamine users to put on condoms and use less illegal drugs by sending them text messages. The study began in February.
In an interview with CNSNews.com, lead researcher Dr. Cathy Reback of the Baltimore-based Friends Research Institute, Inc., explained how she and her team of health educators will spend the next four years and over half a million dollars encouraging gay meth addicts to cut down on unprotected sex by periodically sending them gay-specific text messages.
We did a pilot about four, five years ago with with 52 out-of-treatment MSM (males who have sex with males), Dr. Reback explained. And we sent them text messages that were gay specificused gay lingoand made references to the connection between high-risk sex and methamphetamine use among MSM.
The current study, she added, will test the effectiveness of using text messages to alter gay meth addicts behavior.

I wonder what the Founding Fathers would think of this.
WHERE IS THE DAMN SANITY!
Castration would be cheaper.
This is all enabled by the Central Bank of the USA.
Can't fix stupid.
What is MSM?
Jane, Get me off this crazy thing!
So they are going to text messages to the drug addicts on phones the drug addicts sold to buy drugs?
Who dreams this sh&$ up?
Are these the non-optional messages Obama will be sending?

Thank God! This must mean there are no hungry children or parents, no people awaiting medical care they cannot afford, no businesses struggling to retain their employees and no children lacking in high quality education. There is no way our enlightened government would be spending our tax dollars on correcting sexual perversions among drug addicts unless all other societal ills were already resolved. Right?
There is probably no shortage of liberals who think this very wise and a fine use of taxpayer money. These same people savaged Nancy Reagan with her "just say no" message nearly 30 years ago. This is just an updated version targeted to degenerates. The only real differences is Nancy was trying to help kids, actually gave a damn and did it gratis.
