Talking about drugs on poker players, P.Hellmuth probably didn’t wanted to, but seems like he is advertising it in the best way: “Almost all players who took this drug has won 1 or 2 million dollars over a 6-8 month period.” What better publicity can drug dealers want? Now, when on the streets making business, they just have to say “Didn’t you heard what P.H. said? You can win millions in no time just for going on this!” After saying this, nobody cared about what he said after, the side effects of it.

Today there's a drug for everything and everyone has some type of problem according to the Medical Field. I wonder what they did even 30 years ago for half of the things they say people have or get. I think I'll just live and die the way I was supposed to. Without any prescription medication!
