I nearly fell off of my chair when I saw the title!
how ironic, this was released just a few hours ago
could probably even have its own thread but I’ll leave it here for now
Not sure what to say actually. If it didn't have the Vice logo at the top though it could easily be mistaken for a Transform promotional video.
I suppose there's only so much you can fit into 11 or so minutes. But sorry to say that the elephant in the room (Cocaine) is hardly given a mention. Not to mention Meth. (although once again I still believe Meth. too is doable).
And I don't know if it's just me: but the original article was based on the proposal of selling Cocaine and Ecstasy yet everything subsequent to that seems to have toned down on the Cocaine part of the equation.
Maybe also the UK could be deemed a special case given its size and geography?
I realize you (probably?) cannot argue with the Swiss (or other) statistics. But for the sake of my own interest is this Heroin being supplied in these programs naturally derived or totally synthetic? Anybody?
Just some random thoughts on the topic (as they came to mind).
I dunno. Maybe it's just where I come from. Maybe the people in the UK and the EU etc. are different. All I know is that (here anyway) where there's a gap somebody will take it and exploit it for everything that it's worth and then some (and that includes politicians and law enforcement).
Oh. And one thing that's really pissing me off about Vice is this age restriction nonsense. The people that really need to see stuff like this (and content related to abuse etc.) are the younger generation (fuck that makes me sound old) but this bunch keeps age restricting their content. Yet gratuitous violence and glorification of substance use and abuse etc. is a free-for-all when it comes to the entertainment industry.
Don't get too happy! Said proposal was based on the idea that there would be one single, government controlled, point of entry, manufacture, quality control, storage, testing, and website (for sales). Boring I know.Like @dalpat077 said, online ordering really could work well. I would LOVE to see independent drug producers selling online on an eBay type site. Colombian coca straight from the farm, Czech LSD from a superlab, etc.
For what it's worth: I THINK I've solved a part of the Cocaine problem!
Sorry. Sometimes these things take time to sink into my head (due in part I'm sure to the current information overload on this stuff).
There's already a model! Coca-Cola and the Stepan Company in the USA!
So that takes care of price and eliminates the need for costly 100% synthesis. I think anyway.
Now all we got to do is police this stuff (and from what I gather it's doable if the USA model is anything to go by).
Right. What's next? Any questions?
