Ebola Meth


So apparently a small police department in Texas apparently posted a warning to Facebook that meth (and heroin) supplies were possibly contanimated with Ebola, and should be brought to the station for testing. Resulting apparently in one arrest.

This disturbs me on so many levels. They consider it funny, and compare to some of the stings ( “you won a lottery” etc ) that they sometimes use to trick wanted people into showing up.

But this is something far more sinister. Potentially lethal contamination of a drug- legal or not- is not something to joke about. Nor is a devestating communicable disease such as Ebola.

This completely undermines the trust and the public safety role of the police. And shows a total disregard for the health and safety of a considerable portion of the population solely because they choose to use a drug that happens to be illegal, and yet in many ways is no worse then alcohol or tobacco.

Kind of goes back to the mentality of my first post here- Drug Addicts Deserve to Die

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
