Hezza

Rob Ford hezza night of confusion on Twitter

According to local drug dealers, Rob Ford is into hezza. That's heroin. Or at least we're pretty sure it is. Drug dealers from low income neighbourhoods call heroin "hezza" either because they think it might help them evade police (who seem to know what it means - thanks a lot, whoever wrote this Urban Dictionary entry) or because it takes less time to say and they're busy hustling. Journalists were pretty over the moon when this news broke last night, seemingly because they learned a new word, and/or can't deal with the jarring juxtaposition between "Mayor of Toronto" and "hezza." Here's a slice of what went down on Twitter - where the media indulged in a little schadenFord - last night.
