Why we shouldn't respond rashly to speculative journalism
Yesterday, we all found out that Miami’s “Causeway Cannibal”, Rudy Eugene, wasn’t actually found to have any traces of “bath salts” in his system. The news came after the release of his long awaited toxicology report. The lone substance found was marijuana. Mr. Eugene has now gone from “Causeway Cannibal” to “Cannabis Cannibal” in a few news stories about the case. Sadly, in all likelihood, Mr. Eugene was probably suffering from the extreme comorbid effects of serious mental illnesses.
