The United Nations announced in 2013 that Peru has overtaken Colombia as the world’s top producer of coca, the raw plant material used to manufacture cocaine. For the past two decades, Colombia has been virtually synonymous with cocaine. Now that Peru has become the global epicenter of cocaine production, the Andean nation runs the risk of becoming the world’s next great narco state.
The Peruvian government is trying to crack down on the problem by ramping up eradication of coca plants, and devoting military and police resources to interdiction efforts. Despite the response — and a hefty amount of foreign aid devoted to combatting cocaine production — Peruvian coke is being consumed in the nightclubs of Lima and in cities around the world like never before.... read more
Recent research has analysed the link between the harmful effects of drugs relative to their current classification by law with some startling conclusions. Perhaps most startling of all is that alcohol, solvents and tobacco (all unclassified drugs) are rated more dangerous than ecstasy, 4-MTA and LSD (all class A drugs). If the current ABC system is retained, alcohol would be rated a class A drug and tobacco class B.
The scientists involved, including members of the government's top advisory committee on drug classification, have produced a rigorous assessment of the social and individual harm caused by 20 of the UK's most dangerous drugs and believe this should form the basis of future ranking. They think the current ABC system is arbitrary and not based on... read more

In Cali the plants are cultivated in “grow rooms” that allow 8,000 plants to develop to perfection. The yearly crop amounts to six tons or 12,000 pounds.... read more
Ever wonder how to sell $100,000 worth of drugs in a week? VICE learned the secrets of a drug dealer in NYC – a man who will deliver any substance you want, 24/7. He told them everything – from where he gets his drugs to how his crew operates.
VICE first met the dealer few months ago and after kind of earning his trust for a little while he agreed to let them hang out with him, but for a really obvious reasons, lot of the names and the places that you see in this peace are going to be ... read more
Marijuana, weed, flower, bud, pot – call it what you will but humans have been using cannabis for millennia. This is an ancient medicinal plant that was widely used by physicians in America and everywhere else on the planet right up until 1937 when the government decided to make cannabis illegal. And just because you make something illegal doesn’t magically strip it of its therapeutic properties.
In 1970 cannabis was classified as “Schedule 1″ drug, when the US government decided that the plant had zero medical value and a high potential for abuse.
Forty years on, medical pot is legal in 18 states, including Washington DC. In November 2012, Washington State and Colorado voted to legalize small amounts of weed for recreational use. With the ... read more
Over the better part of this century, athletes have sought to increase the natural performance of their bodies by using various means. And while most opted for the development of their muscle mass by using standard techniques, such as lifting weights, running, or other methods, some started taking to artificial substances, which rapidly promoted the growth of muscles and the expression of male traits age boys experienced at puberty. These substances, anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS), most commonly known just as steroids, are actually a derivate of the testosterone male hormone. This is how they work.
The human body is designed in such a way that it has the ability to adapt itself to the harshest of environments. In order to do that, muscles in particular have to have the capability to increase their size over relatively-short periods of time. And this is the basic principle working out relies on. When we go to the gym and work out the biceps, for example, we actually create small tears inside the muscle fibers. These tears are, of course, repaired by the immune system.... read more
Greedmont TV presents a documentary by Corey Davis on a group crack addicts in Atlanta who live outside in a small cove behind a Texaco, infamously dubbed as the "Living Room." They share their stories and tell us what it's like to battle with a deadly addiction to crack-cocaine. From the director of film: "Growing up I never had a father, because he was out running the streets getting high... Right around the time I was born, the mid 80's, African-American communities across the country was struck by the crack epidemic. Which robbed us our prideful culture and instantly perverted it into a counter-culture where playgrounds became warzones and families were... read more
This documentary just goes to show U can't really argue with the fact DRUGS, and the MEDICINE MEN who use them, go far beyond the scope of the current status quo we find today. A great clip in here shows a DEA employee say that US citizenry decided to ban cannabis as a SHEEPLE - he being unable to connect the memes for the eventual end to alcohol's prohibition with those evident in respect of the popularity of weed for recreational use. 'Hank', from 'Breaking Bad' steps in to give this a slightly commedic edge :() Really entertaining piece of infoMATION ;()
Interesting the 'THC' title is meant to tie Stone Age hunter-gatherers in with the use of drugs, when in quickly it becomes quite apparent that we are in 'The Stoned Ages' right now :()
