Those Columbia frat boys arrested for allegedly running a massive campus drug ring have hit on a brilliant defense: They had to deal LSD and coke to pay their tuition. It was all for the love of learning!
The five guys were busted after authorities say they sold $11,000 worth of drugs to undercover agents. Now, no less than two of the 20-year-old Ivy League drug lords have used the "college is expensive" defense. From the New York Times:
"Why do you think I have to do this?" Mr. David said, according to court papers. Then, referring to his father, he added: "He won't pay my tuition."
These kids really love school! It's a good thing cops caught them during their undergraduate studies—who knows what they'd do for a Masters in Public Policy.
