5 because I looked it up on Amazon and the cheapest copy is over 5 now.
"Due to its absurd writing, illustrations and comments from the author, this book sells out almost anytime a copy becomes available on Amazon.com."
"In August 2010, the author filed a pro se lawsuit against Amazon.com, Urban Dictionary, and Wikimedia, objecting to Amazon's placing the book in their catalog, and Urban Dictionary and Wikipedia describing it. The text of the lawsuit is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors, and erroneously describes Urban Dictionary and Wikimedia as being located at the same geographical address. The lawsuit was dismissed in September 2011"
1. Write an egregiously bad kids book.
2. Let it bomb.
3. Sell remaindered copies on the internet for a huge markup.
Works for me!
The author must not have cared too much, because she has written a sequel that is currently in print and on amazon for about new.

According to this book smoking drugs is bad. So I guess snorting and injecting's just fine?

Waiting with baited breath for the day a MLP:FIM episode is based around this book.
Which characters do you think would be good for the episode?
The Mane Six are too old to be Latawnya. The CMC would be the obvious choice for protagonists (presumably either Sweetie Belle or Apple Bloom, since Scootaloo's mentor Rainbow Dash has a drinking problem, which would make the parental lecture sscene blatantly hypocritical) but then who would be the antagonists? The only Ponyville fillies I could imagine being into drugs would be Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon, but they'd probably be into expensive designer drugs and club shit, and at any rate those bitches would never share their stash with a bunch of blank flanks.
I'd suggest my Manehattan Cutie Mark Crusader OCs, Molly Hatchet and Filly Blunt, since they're scuzzy enough to be into smoking drugs and drinking, yet friendly enough to share with the CMC. But then you'd have to explain why Babs Seed would be cool with her Manehattan-chapter friends getting her cousin into drugs - Babs seems like the kind of pony who'd want to protect her country cousin from Big City vices. Maybe *Babs* could be the one who narcs on Apple Bloom? So as not to ruin Apple Bloom's friendship with Sweetie and Scoots? I mean, who wants to be friends with somepony who snitches on you? Nopony, that's who.
I don't know, but it's an interesting idea!
I think the main character should be a young Pinkie Pie. Her severe-seeming family would make perfect foils for her wacky, whimsical, drug-smoking ways.
Yeeeaaah, that's a really good point! Pinkie obviously has a history with drugs, and her parents do seem like the type who'd try and scare their kid straight with stories of death and destruction. She had two sisters, right? Marble and Limestone? Fraking perfect.
