Fun idea about how to eliminate Cocaine Crops in Columbia
    #3148689 - 09/17/04 04:36 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hey, just had an interesting idea yesterday. I was watching this program on the Cocaine trade in Columbia and so on. And it was the same old stuff about how its really made the country suffer, and all that predictable stuff that youve all seen already.
So I started daydreaming because the show was just getting so boring. Then I thaught about this:

How about developing a geneticly altered Coca plant to the Coca growing regions. A plant that has a defect which allows certain natural preditors of the plant to ravage them. Like a certain bug, mite, other plants, and so on. Im not an expert in the eco-system there so this is all just speculative.
So the plant would, over time, mix with the wild plant, and finaly take over. Or perhaps, not take over because they would slowly die off.

Now without getting into specifics, dont you think that would be cool if that worked?! I do! Who knows, maybe they thaught of it already, and are in the early stages of testing if tey can:) Who the hell knows:)

Or how about...legalizing cocaine, so Columbia can have a prosperous economy?

Doubt the Gov. would do that. Well the Gov. would want to do that but the CIA wont let them. ALot of those agents rely on that coca plant to feed their families and ofcourse then some.

Yes why don't we just use biological warfare on another country? You know the US government has already come up with this idea, you aren't the first one. In their version, a genetically modified virus would be sprayed over the fields in columbia to infect and destroy all the coca plants.

Madness. This is biological warfare plain and simple.

So you think the Columbian govt with the aid of the US trying to destroy illegal crops being grown by violent gangs with a modified virus biological warfare?  :lol: Thats ridiculous

Dude, they're poor people trying to make a living. Their just supplying people with a commodity that they want. That's how capitalism works, whether the product is legal or illegal.

I know...im being overly facetious...

I know the farmers are innocent victims...

But the stuff is illegal..whether i like it or not...so with that premise in mind...and the fact that the Columbian govt supports our efforts to destroy coca plants... It is ridiculous to call this "Biological Warfare", it may be wrong but lets not call it bio-warfare lest we cheapen the horror of true bio-warfare.

Well, whether it was their intended purpose or not this shit is killing the growers as well as innocent people. This stuff is mighty bad. Also since this is a war on drugs and they are using chemical agents, chemical warfare would be a more appropriate name for this.

Beyond the farmer issue, what right does the US gov have to experiment on the land of another country. They want to genetically alter a virus for destructive purposes, yet we still know so VERY little about the science of genetic engineering! Specific trains of virus can and DO cross over from one host species to another. The ecological effects of such an act are unpredictable and could cause widespread disaster.

Do you think they should do this to the marijuana fields in your own country?

That's not even mentioning the CIA's involvement with importing coke...

Actually, if we legalized it, it could be grown in America and we wouldn't need Columbia or Peru or any of those countries for our supply.

So are we trying to eradicate an entire species just because it happens to create a chemical that makes you feel gooooood

Nah but seriously, where's the epa or some enviromental group like that when we spray genetically altered viruses on entire ecosystems like the area where coca grows?

Harm reduction and de criminalize. Goverments give it to the ones that are addicted, that way nobody profits from peopels misery. But thats a different topic, and new thread all together.

This one is about biological warfare to eradicate this plant.
