Eventually technological advancement comes to every profession even if that profession is just burn-out, hippy, or full-time junkie. Its been a long time coming, but apparently science has finally gotten the message and realized that even drug abuse can be made better, faster, and stronger. With that in mind, here are some new, readily available drugs that seem more like science fiction than pharmaceutical fact. Disclaimer: Now, we want to be clear here; were not condoning illegal drug use in any way.
T he drug war has failed. That’s the abbreviated conclusion of a report released today by an international commission studying drug policy. And if governments actually listen to the recommendations of the Global Commission on Drug Policy, resourceful entrepreneurs could find some high opportunities.

Silk Road, a digital black market that sits just below most internet users’ purview, does resemble something from a cyberpunk novel. Through a combination of anonymity technology and a sophisticated user-feedback system, Silk Road makes buying and selling illegal drugs as easy as buying used electronics—and seemingly as safe. It’s Amazon—if Amazon sold mind-altering chemicals. Here is just a small selection of the 340 items available for purchase on Silk Road by anyone, right now: a gram of Afghani hash; 1/8th ounce of “sour 13″ weed; 14 grams of ecstasy; .1 grams tar heroin. A listing for “Avatar” LSD includes a picture of blotter paper with big blue faces from the James Cameron movie on it.

As a former US Army Intelligence Interrogator (they call 'em HUMINT Collectors now...), I would like to provide a few tips for surviving a law enforcement interrogation, and relate one of my experiences on the 'wrong end' of a law enforcement interrogation. First of all, nothing can prepare you for a military interrogation, and it is common knowledge, even expected, that well-trained soldiers may crack under the pressure of a fairly tame military interrogation. That said, law enforcement interrogations work under the same basic principals as military interrogations, but they are limited with regards to the level and intensity of physical interactions between police and suspects, and the fact that law enforcement must give you a lawyer eventually, and must at least appear superficially to be respecting a suspect's civil liberties.
You know who's a thousand times cooler than Carl Sagan? Freeman Dyson. Stupid people are huge recreational drug users, it's called beer. Lol Steve Jobs vis-a-vis Bill Gates. What a pretentious douche.
