Lindsay Lohan is Released From Jail
After just 13 days in jail, our friend, national treasure and the person we wrap ribbons around buildings for, Lindsay Lohan, was released from jail this morning at approximately 1:35 AM. TMZ claimed she was immediately taken to UCLA Medical Center to begin her 90 day rehab treatment. Despite UCLA's specialization with treating psychological issues, reports indicate Lindsay will not be housed in the psych ward, but rather a program that treats chemical dependencies as well as psychological problems.
Yesterday, TMZ stated Lindsay would be in rehab for a methamphetamine addiction, as well as treatment for her bipolar disorder. But Lindsay's attorney maintained she was not addicted to methamphetamines. Lindsay does, however, take Adderall, which is an amphetamine and different than a methamphetamine, and it would be uncommon if the treatment facility considered her dependence on Adderall as an addiction to meth. (It's TMZ, sure, but it's Lindsay Lohan, too.)
Is it possible she'll get out of rehab early? Can people do that? They didn't used to be able to get out of jail early (or at least THAT early) without laying down some sexual favors or some Sour Apple Blow Pops on the warden's desk. A precedent has sure been set -- not even cockroaches can find their ways out of jail that quickly.
So it'll be another three months before we hear from her, unless she tweets away her time in one-on-one and in group sessions. She probably won't though, because she'll want to save her words for her presumably multi-million dollar post-jail interview. And I wouldn't blame her, because one thing meth isn't is cheap! Can I get a Jack Donaghy-sized Republican laugh about world hunger?
