Cocaine users 'making global warming worse'

By Bob Roberts 3/03/2010

Cocaine users were last night accused of helping to make global warming worse.

MPs on the home affairs select committee said the drug was devastating Colombian rainforests because trees are knocked down to grow coca plants.

Group chairman Keith Vaz said: "We were horrified to learn for every few lines of cocaine snorted in a London club, four square metres of rainforest is destroyed."

Un Office on Drugs and Crime chief Antonio Maria Costa added: "Europeans know they shouldn't buy blood diamonds or clothes made by slaves in sweatshops.

"Yet with cocaine the opposite occurs. Worse still, models who wouldn't dare to wear a tiger fur coat show no qualms about flaunting their cocaine use."

Does tiger fur even make a good coat? :confused:

I don't know about tiger fur, but leopard fur makes a pretty coat.


This is hilarious, though, as far as cocaine production contributing to the depletion of the rain forest.

Cocaine isn't really a hippie, liberal, earth-hugger drug, though. In on form, it's a rich person's drug, and in another, it's the ulitmate ghetto drug.

Sounds like they'll have a tough time ginning up some old fashioned middle class guilt on this one. :D

Someone needs to tell the Eco liberal weenie crowd..... Save the forest, save the forest.
