The discovery occurred in the port of Paita, on Peru’s northern Pacific coast close to its border with Ecuador.
"The drugs were hidden inside a shipping container carrying asparagus on the Liberian-flagged vessel SC Anisha R. that had earlier anchored in the Ecuadorian port of #Ecuador, according to a police report [...]. It said the shipment was destined for a port in Belgium."

1/ #Cocaine is a powerful stimulant drug that has been around for thousands of years. It was originally used by indigenous people in South America for religious & medicinal purposes, and was later introduced to Europe and the US in the late 19th century. Image
2/ Cocaine works by increasing levels of #dopamine, a neurotransmitter that regulates pleasure and reward, by blocking its reuptake leading to an accumulation in the synpatic cleft. This leads to feelings of euphoria, increased energy and alertness, and decreased appetite.
3/ Serotonin and norepinehphrine reuptake are also inhibited, leading to increases in those neurotransmitters as well. Sodium channels are also blocked, slowing down the action potentials, thus leading to its medical use as a local anesthetic.

Please stop associating european countries with "beautiful" dreams.
You will only enter a Machiavellian (cunning, duplicitous, in bad faith) nightmare.
Bollywood has brainwashed Indians to associating positives with places like Poland, Switzerland, UK, etc.
Reality is different.

🧵Just read the latest by @marklowen on #ndrangheta based on @NicolaGratteri, maxi trial etc and I want to share some thoughts, as from the BBC I expect more. First of all, outmost respect for Mr Gratteri, his work is precious and whose expertise is key…
2/ The article does not say anything new. The Magistrate vs the Mob narrative has been around since 2019/2020 when RinascitaScott trial started. The only new element is that now, for the public, the trial is known as 'Mancuso MaxiTrial', yet another fiction in this narrative.
3/ The numbers on the #ndrangheta income are mythological and have been disputed many times with data at hands. It would be about time that media stopped fuelling this myth. SIMILARLY, the control of 80% of #cocaine trade, it's old data and unrealistic.

Research says most people who use drugs are men. And many people think there is no reason to involve #women in #drugpolicy. But they are mistaken. The drug phenomenon is not #gender neutral.

Why a #feminist perspective is essential 👉💡🧵...
Due to gendered norms and notions of #femininity that are incompatible with #drugs use, the complex realities of women are often ignored. However, a growing movement is trying to shift this perspective to better understand the unique challenges that female users face.
Let’s have a closer 👁️👁️ why…

#Women who use drugs are often judged because they don’t comply with socially constructed #norms and challenge the traditional role of women.

When Eton College gave Farage a platform, what did they think was going to happen?

Boys directed racist & misogynistic abuse at state school students invited to join them for a speech by Nigel Farage

🧵#Eton #privilege #racism #cheating #cocaine 1/…
#Eton boys ‘sanctioned’ by a school that saw fit to offer hospitality and a platform to Farage and thereby, predictably, exposed state school children (Eton’s guests) to racist and misogynistic abuse

Eton,where Boris Johnson was educated/radicalised…

The unsurprising #Eton #Farage scandal speaks volumes about UK establishment and the school that's groomed so many narcissistic sociopath politicians & journos

In its attempts to restrict the free flow of info about Putin's invasion of Ukraine, TikTok has—unannounced—blocked an estimated 95% of content previously available to Russians, @trackingexposed found.

If you read our 2020 @ASPI_ICPC paper on TikTok you won't be surprised. 🧵 Image
ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns & operates TikTok is rivalled only by Tencent as the most censorship-ready tech company on the planet.

On March 8th, with the flick of a switch, all non-Russian content was blocked on Russian TikTok. ImageImage
TikTok's ability to restrict access to content at this scale was evident in 2020.

As we discovered, the use of #путинвор (‘Putin Is A Thief’)—a catchcry of the political opposition—was blocked on the platform.

Similarly, #гей (#Gay), was also blocked.

@ndlea_nigeria First of all, its obvious DCP #AbbaKyari trusted your officers who double crossed him for this stint. It's obvious they have been doing business together for a very long time.

This only turns out to be a bad business day for him. He was simply betrayed!

@ndlea_nigeria Friendship and trust was at the heart of their shoddy deals. This same friendship and trust was put on the line by your officers to turn in #AbbaKyari and his men.

Your officers @ndlea_nigeria plainly and unambiguously hoodwinked him for this #cocaine scandal.

@ndlea_nigeria #AbbaKyari isn't stupid to start with, he couldn't have just trusted someone for the first time or out of the blues to do such a risky endeavour with.

It was a classical case of #Arewa brothers trusting each other without pretensions. It was never an introductory meeting.

Few understand the far-reaching influence of cocaine on science and medicine, and it's greater cultural significance🧵 #cocaine #MedTwitter
William Halsted (1852-1922), father of modern surgery, introduced local anesthesia for dental procedures by injecting cocaine directly into nerve roots. Halsted also pioneered sterile surgical techniques and the radical mastectomy for breast cancer.…
Halsted reportedly discovered cocaine's properties by self-experimentation. He brought European-style medical residency training to the American medical system and became known for working multi-day cocaine-fueled benders that underpin our inhuman work expectations.

Here's my 5 min talk I just held at the 44th #ECDD:

<< Dear Expert Committee on Drug Dependence,
my name is Fabian Steinmetz. I'm from Germany and I'm an Eurotox-certified toxicologist and professional risk assessor at an international consultancy.
I speak here on behalf of the NGO #ENCOD, the European coalition for just and effective drug policies.
And now I'd like to speak a few words about #kratom (Mitragyna speciosa).
First of all I'd like to remind the committee that banning #hemp, #poppy & #coca was not very successful and even led to more potent derivatives and synthetic imitations. Also these bans fueled violent crime and human rights violations worldwide.

A THREAD: Why such massive #cocaine shipments and large port #seizures in Europe? This drug trade in pandemic has had a particular trajectory.
1/ the pandemic moved different from east to west north to south
2/ by looking at ports and trade from Latin America to major European ports I had found that container shipments did not always reduce but often routes were modified to serve ports differently (more stops regionally; longer trips)…
3/ as the pandemic affected Europe and North America ahead of Latin American countries, producers produced and traffickers tried to traffic as much as they could to build #cocaine reserves. This is why we had huge seizures in April/June last year. So that they wouldn’t run out.

2/ Today, during Trump's Press Conference/Campaign event at the White House, at least five times, he ejected large, white debris from his mouth and possibly his nose.
3/ While this is an unpleasant and for some, a nauseating topic to discuss and watch, it is highly relevant. Many witnesses have made public statements regarding Trump's chronic abuse of cocaine, Adderall, and other drugs.
