PINELLAS PARK, Fla. - A Florida man thought he was being smart when he stole opioids from the medicine cabinet of a home where he was staying.

However, Peter Hans Emery, 56, quickly learned he didn't steal opioids at all. Instead, the laxatives he took probably sent him running to the bathroom.

I can't say what I want because I'll get censored.

There's a balding man on the pot,
He's finding out what he has got
The pills he swiped were not the ones
And now he sits there with the runs.

Good beginning to a Limerick! Here's the finished poem:

There's a balding man on the pot,
He's finding out what he's got
The pills that he swiped, were not the ones sought,
and now, his belly has rot.

He probably moved to Florida from Chicago or New Joisey.

Nah... this is definitely a homegrown kinda Florida story! Every city/state has their issues, but stuff like this is uniquely “Florida.” I get that you have to defend your state, but c’mon. If it were about some nutcase Berkeley vegan, I’d totally admit that was a California thing.

The real question should be, why is this guy trying to steal opioids in the first place?!


In this case, he didnt get any, but most of the time, people DO end up taking another persons medicine that they need, Ive seen morphine stolen from Hospice for a man on his death bed!!!


The laws themselves are whats causing the problems, if they could easily obtain opioids, it would drastically reduce drug related crime and innocent people that are left to deal with it ( how difficult it is if someone steals your narcotic prescription, the process of getting it replaced!!!! It almost takes an act of God to get it replaced!)
