Yet Another English Lesson.

"Drug" is a noun meaning a substance used as a medicine. It can also be a verb meaning to proscribe and administer said medicines: to drug.

It is NOT, however, the past participle of "drag":  I drag the dead body today, I drug the dead body yesterday.

No. I'd like to drag the dead writers that use this to somewhere remote.

Dragged, people.  Look what the cat dragged in!  That cat sure didn't "drug" in something.

Here endeth the /English rant of the day.
