Ghosts Don’t Appear When Intoxicated
Tammy Gadd was arrested Monday, June 15, 2015, after calling 911 and admitting to smoking meth. The story and media buzz could end there…except Ms. Gadd claimed that she was seeing ghosts. According to the Laurel County (KY) Facebook page (below), Gadd and another woman, Linda Johnson, were arrested shortly before 5:00 AM after Gadd called 911. When police responded, Ms. Gadd ticked off items she ingested—admittedly an enormous illegal cocktail—that caused her to hallucinate and see ghosts. Unfortunately, thrill seekers may follow suit, hoping that the consumption of illegal narcotics will cause them to see real ghosts. This is simply not true. There is no need to consume any intoxicant to see an apparition. Do not attempt. If you do, expect to be arrested not enlightened.
