Xanax, Adderall, Vicodin

We're Gonna SUE

Over Druggie T-Shirts

Three major Rx companies are now gearing up to sue a famous L.A. clothing boutique for jacking their product names on snarky jerseys.

Kitson in L.A. is selling shirts emblazoned with popular prescription drug names like Xanax, Vicodin, and Adderall -- drugs that are widely abused and responsible for many deaths.

The people at DrugFree.org have already expressed anger over the shirts ... but now reps for Xanax, Vicodin, and Adderall tell TMZ, they're scrambling lawyers to get the shirts yanked from the shelves ... OR ELSE.  The "or else" is a trademark infringement lawsuit.

Adderall's rep tells us, "We had no involvement NOR do we approve of the sale of such a product using Adderall to glorify the misuse of our product."

Vicodin's rep adds, "Prescription drug use should not be trivialized. It is a serious issue and we will be taking legal action to stop the clothing company from trying to sell such a product."

A Xanax rep tells TMZ they're also considering legal action.

Calls to Kitson were not returned.

I love that Adderall is all over it, Vicodin thinks it sounds good, and Xanax may or may not take action.

I'm a pretty open minded person and I don't get offended easily.. these shirts don't offend me per say, but I still think that glorifying stuff like this is in poor taste. I don't know WHO would actually buy and wear these either. I mean, do girls these days WANT to broadcast their drug abuse? I mean, I don't have an issue with people that smoke pot every now and then or whatever, but people who abuse (and overdose/die) on these script drugs are making it damn near impossible for those that actually NEED them to get them. All doctors these days think everyone that comes in with pain/injuries is just trying to score drugs. (That whole donations go to the drug blah blah is totally crap too.) These rank up there with glittery shirts with the words SLUT and C*M DUMPSTER on them.. and yes, those things DO exists.
