Burmese govt vows action against drug traffickers

Burma’s government has pledged to take strong action against drug producers and traffickers across the country.

Ben: Diary Of A Heroin Addict

I happened upon this while looking through the shows online at the ABC. Something about the concept dragged me in; Ben has been a heroin addict/poly drug abuser for over ten years, has got a handycam and decides to film as faithful a representation of his life on video as circumstances will allow.

Size doesn't matter

I am not sure exactly what prompted me to write this article. Perhaps Bek's recent death, which was so closely allied to the concept of inability to measure small amounts of fentanyl. But regardless of recent deaths, in an industry that is centred around the concept of weights and measures, in my using life I have had innumerable discussions with others around the idea of 'size'. I'd like to outlay the two major conclusions I have come to over the last 25 years of buying gear.

1. Size does not matter.

The Hard Drug Chronicles

Don't be misled by the product information, this book is a collection of short stories by an extensive list of contributors. As well as being one of the contributors Jerry Stahl is one of five editors.

 

The book is an extensive volume of drug stories but I wouldn't say comprehensive simply because there doesn't seem to be the level of international contributors from the rather small number of stories I read. There is a reason for this in the history of how the book came to be published so don't take it as a criticism.

Secrets of Mexico's Drug War

The arrest of Mexican drug lord Joaquin 'el Chapo' Guzman in February 2014 was hailed as a victory in America's war on drugs, but the truth behind the capture could be just another murky chapter in the scandal-ridden history of US involvement in Latin America and the Mexican drug wars.

What to write?

It's a common question in my head.  I read many books, they're sometimes entertaining, sometimes dull but educational (the literary equivalent of porridge), sometimes they revolutionise how I see things.   That last category is something that seems to happen less and less these days.  Perhaps the brain is wired to accept revolutionary thoughts when you're 20 to 30 years old, and as you age, the brain resists attempts to have the status quo overthrown.
