Drug addicts get the rope.

2017-03-29 22:50:11 UTC  

yea, I mean I see your point but our current situation isn't that nicely divided

2017-03-29 22:50:19 UTC  

Opportunity cost is a powerful thing.

2017-03-29 22:50:19 UTC  

True

2017-03-29 22:50:33 UTC  

we have legal channels making addicts who then turn to the black market mainly out of price concerns

2017-03-29 22:50:42 UTC  

Maybe social ostracism could work in some way.

2017-03-29 22:50:43 UTC  

with opiates anyway

2017-03-29 22:51:17 UTC  

I think social ostracism is far more powerful with addicts than the threat of the rope

2017-03-29 22:51:32 UTC  

they clearly don't fear death, they're tangling with it every day

2017-03-29 22:51:55 UTC  

I think most humans do fear being completely shut out of any social group

2017-03-29 22:52:37 UTC  

In Singapore they used to whip people for drug abuse in public. But I don't know if they still do that.

2017-03-29 22:52:57 UTC  

that's much closer to social ostracism than anything we do

2017-03-29 22:53:20 UTC  

Yeah we just sort of turn our heads.

2017-03-29 22:53:25 UTC  

certainly a hell of a lot cheaper than our DEA budget

2017-03-29 22:53:30 UTC  

Trump specifically mentioned the weakened borders during the presser about drugs

2017-03-29 22:53:36 UTC  

that's good

2017-03-29 22:53:50 UTC  

I think he's using the drugs as further justification for the wall

2017-03-29 22:53:59 UTC  

And he asked the dea to confirm, which they did

2017-03-29 22:54:02 UTC  

it's part of the case he's building

2017-03-29 22:54:07 UTC  

👍🏻

2017-03-29 22:54:17 UTC  

They found a huge meth cache that was en route to a city near me carried by a bunch of illegals.

2017-03-29 22:54:35 UTC  

No wonder it's been so bad in my state.

2017-03-29 22:54:48 UTC  

they snagged a few hundred pounds off I-5 in san diego a few weeks ago

2017-03-29 22:55:09 UTC  

wew lad

2017-03-29 22:55:21 UTC  

I forget if it was 200lbs or 200 kilos

2017-03-29 22:55:24 UTC  

but I remember 200

2017-03-29 22:56:29 UTC  

I think Trump is going to find the US Government is complicit in a lot of the drug problems

2017-03-29 22:56:37 UTC  

as far as the supply routes

2017-03-29 22:57:14 UTC  

I suspect a lot of the CIA's overseas operations are funded partially by drug trafficking in some way

2017-03-29 22:58:09 UTC  

lots of blind eyes being turned, which makes the USG complict IMO

2017-03-29 23:08:20 UTC  

@Convo I think enjoyed that video more than any normal person should

2017-03-29 23:09:42 UTC  

Oscilloscope visualizations of music will always do this to me...

2017-03-29 23:21:28 UTC  

the old women really did screw up Jesus's face

2017-03-29 23:23:20 UTC  

>screw up
You mean she made it great again!
