Oregon inmate dies from meth-laden kiss; girlfriend gets 2 years

PORTLAND – An Oregon woman whose inmate boyfriend died from a meth-laden kiss after a prison visit was sentenced to two years behind bars Tuesday on a drug conspiracy charge. Melissa Ann Blair and Anthony Powell shared a long kiss at the end of a visit last year at the Oregon State Penitentiary and she passed seven tiny balloons filled with methamphetamine into his mouth. Two of the balloons ruptured in Powell’s stomach a short time later and he died of methamphetamine toxicity, prosecutors have said.

Known for outrageous stage antics and its makeup-and-leather aesthetic, Kiss is as much a brand as a band, with likenesses of its members adorning everything from comic books to pinball machines. There’s even a Kiss-themed arena football team. The band last came through Spokane in 2011, and founding member Paul Stanley says the group patterned this current tour after its 2014 Las Vegas residency. Dubbed “Freedom to Rock,” the show promises all the pyrotechnics and power chords you’ve come to expect from a Kiss concert.
