oh my god the heroin in fake electrolytic capacitors [i]soldered to a circuit board[/i] is genius.

glad to see the creative entrepeneurial spirit is still alive and well.

Wait a second, you're supposed to hide your drugs?

That makes them so much harder to find though.

Hey Mom, I want a Splif and Jelly sandwich!

Strange though, I can't find any mention of a car made entirely from weed that's being smuggled over the border by a couple of hippies and some rocker chicks.

I'm just curious how the customs agents decided to split open those caps? Was it from a really well known source, or was there enough residue on the material to tip off the drug dogs?




Or perhaps customs is in the habit of smashing open random electronics...

that splif peanut butter is awesome. that's not an illicit item -- that's art. somebody put some creativity, time, and effort into that. i applaud it.

i would love to make a splif, banana and honey sandwich...which would make me hungry for another splif, banana and honey sandwich...which would make me hungry for another splif, banana and honey sandwich...which would make me.....

Damnit, srboisvert, since I checked this out, I've been reading every single one of the Microgram Bulletins! They are amazingly fascinating and show that dope doesn't make you stupid, it makes you cleverer than you were before.

The cocaine hidden in the working battery (a car battery hollowed out with a rechargable inside wired to the other electrodes) in the joint compound was damned amazing!

I think the "Heroin foam" is pretty amazing myself.

I think Reason broke this story originally. Good commentary, to boot.

If this is what they're catching, imagine how much makes it through.

Uhhm, the Afgan warlords have to be selling their record setting drug crops somewhere, yes? That many minds trying to noodle where to hide the shit, as opposed to the number of heads boggling where to find it ... I'll take 3 to one on the drug runners.

Umm... some of these seized chemicals are still unscheduled... or (mostly) still legal.

Makes me wonder what happened to the people these certain drugs were seized from...

Just about every page has a reference to a "clandestine methamphetamine lab." As though it were a bigger crime because someone hid the fact that they were making crank.

neckro23 -- it's in the most recent one.

Great link. I wonder if they're going to be concerned by the sudden rise in popularity...

Choosy Moms choose Splif?

All of a sudden the trucker hat revival almost makes sense...

Meth labs are dangerous mostly because of the chemicals present and their typical less than stellar safety measures. Most law enforcement officers are told not to enter a meth lab and wait for the pro cleanup team to handle it.

I heard a story (true??) of a cop that stepped inside of one. Went home and the residue of the chemicals on his shoes killed his young son. Scary.... I want to be able to buy spliff at my local 7-11.

"The source for these bars is currently unknown. An Internet search lists “Tainted Truffle” (a sub-title on the “Stoners” candy bar) as a supporting organization for a California based marijuana legalization lobbying group, with no further information. There is nothing on “Stoners” or “Buddafingas”. A number of Microgram subscribers have requested information on the source of these products; therefore, if any subscriber is aware of that source, please forward that information to the Editor at: microgram_editor@mailsnare.net]"
If you could also forward the information to potheads-list@four-twenty.com...

SENTRON® FIRE EXTINGUISHERS CONTAINING COCAINE IN NOGALES, ARIZONA

I can just imagine the hijinks that could ensue when an unsuspecting person tries to use one of these on a fire. With the cocaine converted into foam, the fire at first would be dampened, but then come back RAGING and POWERFUL, nay, UNSTOPPABLE, turning unspeakably arrogant and garrolous, before finally putting its fist through a wall, jumping about in hysterical pain, smashing through a window and falling to the ground. Heh. Stupid fire.
