Closing Thought–29May20

I do not post much about the UK society for I figure those who live there would be more and better informed than me…..but I read a story that I would like to get Brit feedback……

I involves the use of illegal drugs….namely Cocaine…..

Cocaine usage in Britain has soared by almost 300 per cent in less than a decade with Britons taking 117 tonnes of the drug last year, a senior investigator has told The Times.

Lawrence Gibbons, head of drugs threat at the National Crime Agency, said that the estimated amount trafficked had risen from 30 tonnes in 2011.

“The UK is the biggest user of powder cocaine in Europe,” he said. “A lot of the consignments we see coming into Europe — through Spain, Belgium or the Netherlands mainly — a significant proportion is destined for the UK.

Can someone break this down for me and my readers?

Thanx in advance for your help.

  1. This has become the number one drug for the working classes here, as it is cheaper than ever. and less dangerous than Spice, or Speed. Fuelled by depression about the pandemic, coke use is at an all time high, especially as the drug coming into the country has never been so pure and unadulterated. Even my own stepson is a regular user, and now trying to wean himslef off of it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. It was a bitch…..and then I got severely injured after Katrina and morphine was introduced to my system…..I am just now getting over that problem…..chuq
