Store under fire for drug shirts

A store in Orange County is now under fire for selling a T-shirt that apparently promotes drug use.



The shirt is sold at "Jimmy Jazz" stores, including one at the Newburgh Mall, and depicts the names and labels of commonly abused prescription narcotics like Xanax, Percocet and Vicodin.



Outraged shoppers say the shirt glorifies the growing epidemic of prescription drug abuse and should be taken off the shelves. "With all the kids overdosing I guess it's just not an appropriate thing," says Winston Drackett, of Wallkill.



The store's manager wouldn't comment on the shirt. News 12's calls to the corporate offices of Jimmy Jazz have not been returned.
