Wa will not become government militia

While some elements among the Wa are arguing for a 'Peace at any Price' solution the agreement reached will maintain the UWSA status as a non-government force until satisfaction with the 'political process' is more substantial.

The Romance of Opium

"Narcotics have been systematically scapegoated and demonized. The idea that anyone can use drugs and escape a horrible fate is an anathema to these idiots. I predict that in the near future right-wingers will use drug hysteria as a pretext to set up an international police apparatus." 
William S. Burroughs
(1914 - 1997)

A New Look at the Golden Triangle

The drug trade in Myanmar's Shan States is still going strong but the political dynamics are different .


At last, a movie that deals with the low level heroin business in a non-glamourised, fairly realistic fashion. I'm amazed that when I watched this film I realised it hadn't been done successfully before.  IMDB says "A drug pusher grows increasingly desperate after a botched deal leaves him with a large debt to a ruthless drug lord."

Dancing Barefoot

There has to be something for the concept of subliminal messages. Well, perhaps it's more simply put as associations.  For instance, My partner and I just scored, on this wet rainy Brisvegas night. I have the shot, come downstairs and put on a song...Patti Smith, Dancing Barefoot. And before I know it, she's crooning about heroin. At a conscious level I planned none of the song choice. But obviously my brain knew what to do. Thank allah for the subconscious, I say.

Conspiracy or economics?

Seventeen Years Ago in a Quaint Thai Prison 2

Return from Court at the PrisonIsn't the Internet wonderful! I typed Mae Hong Son 1995 into Google Images and scrolled through and found, to my delight a picture from the prison where I had stayed in the first of this lot. I downloaded the pic and used it for something then took a closer look to try and work out where and when in particular the picture was taken when I realised from the clothing that it must have been the same time of the year.
