Some could see incest as a result of bad parenting, which is just a ham-fisted segue to say: Speaking of bad parenting, a mother in West Salem, Oregon, was arrested along with her son, for driving her son to a heroin deal with an undercover cop. Whoopsie.

Let's take ourselves out of the full paradigm of parenting. She probably made some mistakes along the way to get to this point. She probably didn't read her son bedtime stories...unless you count the Motley Crue biography as a bedtime story. She probably didn't go to a whole lot of parent-teacher conferences. But I'm not talking about the mistakes that lead the mother-son duo of duplicity to this point, I'm just looking at this isolated incident.
This is a story about a mother trying to help her son become an entrepreneur. The son, Michael, was just released from jail two days earlier, and corporate society has made it increasingly difficult for people with a criminal record, no matter how reformed he/she may be, to have a second chance and enter the world of legitimate employment.

diacetylmorphine, and is used subcutaneously as an analgesic and pain reliever. Michael could be seen as an (unlicensed) pharmacist. What mother wouldn't want to facilitate her son's desire to relieve the pain of others?
She was driving her son to work! And seriously, let's applaud her for still having a driver's license if this is what her family life is like. Then, when the cops busted them, Suzan, the mother, tried to hide eight grams of heroin to protect her son from the harsh judgement of a misguided society.
I, for one, applaud you, Suzan for attempting to be a good mother in the face of injustice, helping her son in spite of arbitrary rules of right and wrong established to prop up a corporatised prison state! She is truly a good bad parent.
