Store takes heat for selling T-shirts printed with the names of prescription drugs
Kitson is called 'ignorant and irresponsible' for T-shirt line.
An Los Angeles-based clothing store is in trouble for selling a line of T-shirts with the names of prescription drugs Adderall, Vicodin and Xanax on them.
According to the Daily Mail, Kitson LA released the Designer Drugs Collection, designed by Brian Lichtenberg, last week and has since caused major controversy from customers, Twitter users and Facebook members alike.

After the negative feedback surrounding the shirts, Kitson released a statement claiming that the tees were "art" and a "parody of pop culture," which in turn just made everyone more angry.

"Pop one on and you'll feel better. Doctor's orders," says the online description of the tees. But customers claim this is definitely not art, but rather an outrage that is glorifying drug use. "You obviously haven't had a son or daughter die in your home from an overdose on prescription pills, as I have and thousands of other parents have," wrote one person on Facebook.

Prescription drugs are a bigger problem than illegal drugs. They're the reason that health insurance is so high. Drug cartels have nothing on Big Pharma. These shirts scream "I'm a neurotic wimp!"
Everybody has T-shirts with their logo or advertisement why not the drug company if this is against the law then you to ban the advertisement also from TV.
