Cocaine witches' Brew Poisons the enviroment
    #3165620 - 09/22/04 06:07 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

308 Tones of Cocaine were seized worldwide by officials in 1992 (A mear fraction of the total)

To make that much requires 28 Million Gallons of Kerosene, 1.1 Million Gallons of Solvents, 295,000 gallons of sulfuric acid, 18,500 Gallons of Hydrochloric Acid, and 3,700 Gallons of ammonia.
Much of the total amount is dumped into riversystems, destroying aquatic life and polluting irrigation and drinking water.
(Source: National Geographic January 1994)

Part of the Online Report I found goes into more detail and is more up to date than the N.G. article....

The processing of coca leaves into coca paste and cocaine
has its own environmentally damaging effects. U.S. State
Department studies indicate that ?10 million liters of sulfuric
acid, 16 million liters of ethyl ether, 8 million liters of
acetone, and from 40-770 million liters of kerosene? are poured
directly into the ground by cocaine processors working in the
Andean region, mainly Colombia, yearly. The consequences of this
pollution are quickly felt in the small rivers where the aquatic
life is devastated. The primary growing area in southern
Colombia, the Caqueta river basin, is particularly polluted.
There have also been increasing reports of sickness among the
people and livestock of these areas, who rely on the rivers and
well for water.

To learn more about the damage, I found this report.

What is a DEA agent doing posting on The Shroomery? Is this how you waste our tax dollars?

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

YES, and im here to brainwash you with complete lies!!

Ok, ok, Cocaine it causes no pollution at all, in fact, they have Enviromental laws in Columbia that the Drug Lords take very seriously. In fact, the Drug Lords have started thier own enviromental campain to help stop dumping into the rivers.

Sorry for trying to brainwash you with a bunch of lies about all the damage, you know Im just doing my job trying to make you feel guilty for going to hell for doing drugs...sorry...

:whatever:

You want to clean up the process? A good first step would be to legalize it. After it's legitimized, enact pollution standards. Keeping it illegal will not make the problem go away.

That aint gonna happen anytime soon. I just wanted everyone to know YET ANOTHER negative impact the stuff has. And as if there isnt enough to worry about this mess with the drug, at least there is one more reason to get rid of it.

If its gone, there will be NO pollution. Why should there be ANY pollution for the sake of people getting high? Theres no other use for the stuff. I say work toward getting rid of the plant containing the drug completely by introducing a geneticly manipulated non drug variety. Saving some for traditional use of course.
