File this under “Duh!”


The American Heart Association today advised doctors to ask patients with chest pains if they’ve recently used cocaine. Apparently, the effects of cocaine usage are similar to those of a heart attack, causing rapid heartbeat, anxiety, dizziness, and sweating. Treating cokeheads through standard heart attack procedures may cause further damage to their health.

Do I really need to even comment on this stupidity? If a doctor doesn’t know that, I’m kinda thinking his third-world medical degree may need to be revoked. Just saying.
