Those Aussies just need to be the best at everything, don’t they? Except, a British medical journal recently revealed that Australia and New Zealand also top the global charts for usage of marijuana and methamphetamine! Awkward!
Cape Town police arrested an as yet un-named man today holding a virtual armoury of weapons, and a literal pharmacy of illegal narcotics in Woodstock. What was this man on a mission packing? We’ve got the whole list!
Whether you love it or hate it, Facebook’s new Timeline feature is here to say. Rather than jump on the bandwagon condemning the new feature, an Israeli ad agency used it to send a powerful anti-drug message.
By now you must have heard of Nobanda Nolubabalo, the 23 year-old South African who was arrested in Bangkok on Monday. She is accused of being a drug mule and was allegedly carrying 1.5kg of cocaine, hidden in her dreadlocks. Photos of customs officers searching her hair have since appeared online. See them after the jump.
It’s Just a Plant is an illustrated picture book about marijuana for the younger members of society. The plot is fairly simple: Jackie catches her folks smoking a joint one evening, and then her mother takes her on a trip the next day to learn more about marijuana.
Footage showing a Liverpool drug dealer throwing R1,5 million worth of cocaine from a moving car has been released by police. The guy tossed 2kg of the drug from the window of a Mercedes while being followed by police filming the chase.
I think it’s safe to say that hatin’ on Julius has now officially saved more conversations than the weather. Having said that, after a good rant most of us move on. Most of us. One Eastern Cape man, however, decided to put on a cape, jump on some cars and claim that he is a superman from the clouds, sent to kill Malema.
Darren Aronofsky is the well-known film director behind Requiem for a Dream, and more recently, Black Swan. He has made a series of shocking adverts – each stressing the horrible consequences of abusing methamphetamine, or Tik as it is known here. Be warned however, even though these are must-see material, some of them are very disturbing and probably NSFW.
Looks like the only bottles in da club for Lil Weezy will be the ones filled with mineral water. Following his recent conviction for drug possession, the rapper isn’t allowed to consume alcohol or associate with anyone knowingly engaged in narcotics – good luck. Let’s see if he can last longer than (Camps Bay) “twenty minutes my broda”.
We’ve all read the Guide to Klapping Gym Boet, and while it’s an amazing read, and wonderfully illustrates the way countless people feel about “charnas” in gyms around the world, no one took it to heart. Or at least we thought not, until some mad American gymster, who was the embodiment of the Guide, died trying to take things to the next level.
Abdus-Salaam Ebrahim, the national coordinator of People Against Gangsterism And Drugs, is busy resurrecting Pagad following his release from prison. The 61-year-old spent nine years in jail and two on parole, but now that he’s a free man, he is driving the resurgence of his movement, with plans to open branches around the country.
The latest in a series of phenomenally creative, Hollywood movie style smuggling stories involves false-bottomed cars, parking meters and a total of 16 tunnels. Of course no one was caught in the act, but if you guessed that the tunnels were supposed to be filled with drugs and some very naughty Mexicans, you’d be correct.
The mother of a young school child in Missouri has been arrested, following her son’s show and tell day with his kindergarten class. Because, unfortunately, the subject of the little boy’s S&T presentation this month was his mom’s crack pipe.
The former Republican vice-presidential contender, Sarah Palin, is alleged to have taken cocaine and smoked weed in a new controversial and highly anticipated biography written by Joe McGinniss. Oh, it’s also alleged that she cheated on her husband (though she’s vehemently denied this before) and let the kids fend for themselves quite a bit.
In what must have seemed like a scene straight from a movie, hundreds of Orthodox Greek mourners were mistakenly served kourabiedes, a traditional Greek biscuit, at a funeral reception. Shortly after tasting the biscuits, the guests started acting incredibly strangely and the funeral bureau officers called the police.
So it looks like Brazil is at the forefront of drugvertising, and Amy is there number one brand ambassador. Apparently a gang has been using her likeness to market baggies of coke, inserting her picture inside and dubbing her as ‘Amy House’. Guess who they were putting in their bags of crack? Osama Bin-Laden.
Her untimely death shocked millions of people, but as proof that every cloud has a silver lining, a duet between Amy Whinehouse and Jazz Legend Tony Bennett is to be released as a charity single. All royalties from the pop classic Body and Soul, are to go to an organisation set up by Amy’s father, curbing youth drug use.
There’s a growing body of evidence supporting the idea that alcoholism can be passed to one’s children genetically. So too, an addiction to drugs like crack cocaine. But recently, medical facilities in the US have reported an overwhelming number of cases of babies hooked on the same prescription drugs that were abused by their mothers during pregnancy.
Just last week, an interesting fellow was busted trying to smuggle marching powder in his bra and panties, and now this. Are drug smugglers getting more creative, or just higher on their own stash? Seriously. This next lady actually tried to smuggle three kilo’s of coke, under her fake hair. Poor custom’s agents. I guess from now on, everyone’s a suspect.
Normally, when one goes to rehab, it’s to break the cycle of abuse and addiction, not to test out some hallucinogenic drug for a week to see if it distracts you from your other addictions. But, if you’re Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, you probably still have that mindset that you only have one gear: go.
On Thursday, the Mexican Defense Department reported that soldiers have found the largest weed plantation ever detected in Mexico. The huge field covers an astonishing 300 odd acres (120 hectares), and would have been worth about $160 million if it had been harvested and brought to market.
Personally, I took Shakespeare as more of an opium den kind of a guy, but I’ve been wrong before and I’ll be the first to admit that. Anyway, a South African anthropologist from Wits University has set in motion a request to open the graves of William Shakespeare and his family to determine, among other things, what killed them.
Americans put them in pies, Africans make them into bags and now, Russians turn into them. The drug, a mixture of codeine, petrol and paint thinners, is injected and actually turns your skin scaly and green like that of a crocodile. It also bursts blood vessels and results in amputation. Dodgy.
