Weird Connecticut This Week (Vol. 2)

This past week there were, as always, some unusual things happening in the Land of Steady Habits.

  • Hundreds of state workers in a office building on Sigourney Street in Hartford claim that mold is making them sick. Union officials are giving out protective gear. Video available if you follow that link. Big budget surpluses but mold everywhere...
  • Health advocates and free speech advocates alike are happy that Dr. Mark Breiner, a dentist, will now be allowed by the State Department of Public Health to advise his patients about what he claims are the dangers of dental fillings which utilize mercury.
  • And finally, as if we didn't have enough drugs, let it come as a sad revelation to you that it is popular in some circles to use animal tranquilizers to get high. A Pennsylvania man was arrested in our cute little state for allegedly possessing dozens of bags of ketamine, called "Special K" on the street.
Animal tranquilizers?
