Rush Limbaugh busted with Viagra..


In a humorous turn of events, CBS reported that Rush Limbaugh, conservative commentator, was stopped with potential possession of illegal drugs. Limbaugh was stopped in Palm Beach International Airport, where a routine investigation of his luggage revealed the possession of a perscription for Viagra. This prescription, however, was in the name of his doctor, not Limbaugh. This is a common tactic for many who prescribe drugs to others in order to avoid being linked with a prescription.

Authorities, upon investigating, cleared Limbaugh and let him pass on his way, as the prescription did not violate his non-narcotic possession agreement with the state of Florida.

Why Limbaugh had a now-almost-empty bottle of Viagra after a trip to the Dominican Republic is still the subject of quite a bit of market scuttlebutt.

(to quote the Stern show: "Let's go fuck some WHORES!" nothing like going to the Dominican Republican to lay hands on some cheap women of the night... Or maybe he, as a now single man, found a much better use for all those Viagra by himself??)

I don't think it matters if he had it or not. I find it fine that he goes on his way. It's just an amusing story because him holding drugs prescribed to another person is technically a violation of his probationary agreement with the state of Florida. Because it was a minor violation, it will not result in the revocation of the deal between himself and the state of Florida with regards to doctor shopping.

However, the nature of the drugs found, as well as the place of his visit, create more media simply because of who he is. If it were Brad Pitt, it would also create a storyline, and so on. The fact that any major celebrity, especially a single one, is searched makes waves within the news.

In this case specifically, however, the residents of the state of Florida have a significant investment. the case of Florida vs. Limbaugh cost the state millions of dollars in prosecutorial dollars to investigate and put forward a case with regards to doctor shopping. This investment by the state of Florida paid off in basically nothing with the exception of an agreement that for the term of 12 months, he would be subject to the strictest enforcement of the laws surrounding the possession of medical goods.

In this case, it made national news because for some, this sign of him being in the posession of drugs which were prescribed for a person not himself technically violates the rules.

In the end, though, I would concur it is not significant nor meaningful enough to open up his private case which, for the most part, was a witch hunt.

However, none of that prevents the story from being humorous on it's face value
