Major Drug Org.

SCREW KITSON

We're Not Taking Donations from Rx Shirt Sales

0829-xanax-adderall-vicodin-drugfree

One of the biggest anti-drug organizations in the U.S. has drawn a hard line in the sand -- telling a trendy L.A. clothing boutique it will NOT accept donations collected from the sale of "irresponsible" drug-inspired shirts.

The shirts in question have been at the center of a media firestorm  -- featuring the names of various prescription drugs like Xanax and Vicodin plastered across the back.

After taking all sorts of heat, Kitson -- the boutique selling the shirts -- has said it would donate part of the profits to the Medicine Abuse Project ... a partner of DrugFree.org.

But DrugFree.org is pushing back HARD -- firing off a letter to Kitson saying, "We would not entertain any direct donation from Kitson while you flagrantly, and without remorse, continue to sell these products."

Translation -- take your money and stick it.

DrugFree.org also demanded Kitson remove the org.'s name from the store's website -- and Kitson has obliged.

As for the shirts, Kitson is still dealing ...

mind-blowing to think that people fought and gave their lives-and continue to- for our right to be stupid. everyone wants this freedom but what do they do with it? twerk, act trashy, and promote drug use. then they look around and wonder how society went to crap.

The designer is a moron for even justifying this as a "parody" of pop culture. The people of Kitson are morons for trying to capitalize on prescription drug use. And the pharmaceutical companies that produce these drugs are morons for even trying to peddle these addictive pills to the masses.

I don't see any propofol shirts. Maybe Conrad Murray could make them in prison.

Never take any type of medicine. Medicine is a form of mind control with nasty side effects.

This is mind blowingly trashy. Only in Cali would such a thing like promoting drug abuse happen. After all you could probably walk into a doctors office there with this shirt and get a prescription
