  1. Citation needed. Why do credulous people always swallow stuff whole when it is printed meme style over a photograph and shared online?

  2. This is what they call a folk etymology. The word ‘junk’ for drugs was around years before ‘junkie’. It’s most likely a reference to the Chinese ships called Junks. Most opium came from China back then and San Francisco had it’s share of opium dens in it’s Chinese communities. There was even a saying ‘beating the gong’, meaning passing an opium pipe around.
