Good to Know We Have Drug Laws On the Book to Save Privileged Former Child Stars

Tatum O'Neal -- "My dog died so I needed some blow":
NEW YORK - Tatum O'Neal has told a newspaper that she was distraught over the loss of her dog when she went looking to buy drugs from a Manhattan street dealer last weekend.

The 44-year-old actress says in Tuesday editions of the New York Post that she lost her Scottish terrier about three weeks ago.

She spoke to the Post in a telephone call after being arraigned Monday on a charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance. She entered no plea.

O'Neal says that her arrest Sunday "saved" her from possibly ruining her life. Police have accused her of buying cocaine.
Good for her. Count yourself as the exception to the rule. I can think of more than a few people who weren't so lucky as to be "saved" by our drug laws. Unless getting shot to death, or thrown in prison counts as being saved...
