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 ...

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

To me its amazing that a well known store with high end clients would entertain the notion that this is a good idea. To me his is the kind of thing that used to be sold at a "head shop" or in the back of high times magazine. They have no shame. These days its all about the almighty dollar folks, and screw everyone else....
LOW CLASS!

Unless they're infringing in a copyright, the shirts should stay on the market. Yes, they should make Sizzurp and Propofol versions. We have freedom of expression in this country as so many seem to have forgotten. If you don'r like it, don't buy it/wear it/watch it. Blaming a tshirt for social ills is idiotic.

Notice they said they wouldn't take a "direct" donation. In other words, please give us the money, just give it to someone else first.
