Google: America’s Most Notorious Drug Dealer

You would think this would be the case with as much money as Google is paying to settle charges against the company for “trafficking illegal drugs.” The cool $500 million should put a dent in our debt at least, anyway.

But the charges are pretty darn stupid, and the reasoning behind the activity itself resonate with every American who has had to tighten their belts, cut back, and sacrifice food for gas or electricity since the financial collapse of the country in 2007. Google is only promoting Canadian drugs via their website—ads that automatically show when a user is searching for such products. You might think that Google is running an underground heroine ring when in reality, they’re only making more choices available to the American public—something that the country itself has failed to provide.
