Gyrfalcon: How can they even find cocaine in Scotland? Don't the Colombians kind of stick out long before they get there?
GoldDude: Gunther: Bslim:My aunt lives in Scotland. She says it's quite nice.What, the quality of the coke?
Low Budget Dave: nickdaisy: If you want good looking white chicks, do not go to those three countries.To be fair, if you visited Scotland recently, you may have been looking at the guys. Those are their Commonwealth Games uniforms. The coke "problem" is largely because Scotland bothers to keep records, which the U.S. has mostly stopped doing.
Headso: coke is cool when you are at parties in late teens early twenties but outside of that window it's kinda sad, unless you are going though some kind of mid life crisis and you are doing it while you drive some fast car down a road with an ocean view while a woman 15 to 20 years your junior gives you head.
mike_d85: Cormee: Christ, can you imagine trying to understand them when they're on coke.I'm now just imagining a series of gurgles and clicks in my head./Not that different.
brantgoose: The USAScotlandSpainIf you had to name one thing these three countries have in common it would probably be ... bad cooking.So here's the latest Brantgoose Theory: people who can't cook food cook meth and coke.Think about it. Works on a national and local scale.The solution is right under your noses (pardon the expression): teach people how to cook and to enjoy food.The French are the only nation to seriously do this, but Michelle Obama has tried to make a step in the right direction by encouraging healthy school lunches and has been soundly mocked by the Puritans who made American cookery inedible in the first place, not to mention the very regions and classes of people who have made coke and meth so popular in both urban and rural environments.Coke is not a black drug. It is a white middle class and upper class drug.Meth is not a black drug. It is the drug of choice for the rural and urban underclasses and is produced and consumed by reactionary hillbillies as much as urban hipsters.I think I am on to something: if you don't know how to enjoy and produce good food, you fall back on self-medication. If you don't know how to enjoy the simple, natural pleasures of life (food, drink, sex, sleep, good music, etc.) you fall prey to the unnatural pleasures of life (politics, religion, drugs, fast food).God help Scotland. Even the English have learned a lot about food since the wartime and post-wartime deprivations came to an end.
Lee451: codenamewizard: The drugs aren't the problem. It's the crime related to the black market selling of drugs. Governments around the world could care less about their people...they care about control. If you want drugs you can get them most any where. If they made meth legal tomorrow....I still wouldn't want it....but the choice should be mine to do as I choose with my own body./Make it all legal//Make sure it is safe/pure///Tax it, keep it out of the hands of children////Give people help that want to quit (medical problem...not a legal one)//Google - LEAP (law enforcement against prohibition) www.leap.cc// Wait....what were we talking about? The problem is that too many people abuse it (and I am one who has been that route too many times). Do you want to live in an area full of meth heads? It is a great drug, at first. Plenty of energy, optimism, and enthusiasm. Then comes monomania, megalomania and paranoia. Then comes the irrational, dangerous behaviour. I think we should be allowed to put what we like into our bodies but do you want your surgeon or pilot coming off a week-long binge? If there is freedom to do as we please, then there must be severe penalties for (advertently or inadvertently) negatively affecting others.
