Cocaine An Unauthorized Biography

Characters Cocaine An Unauthorized Biography Download â Cocaine An Unauthorized Biography 102 Uses today His research takes him from the arcane reaches of the British Library to the isolation cells of America's most secure prisons; from the crackhouses of New York to the jungles of Bolivia and Colombi. THIS This book is one of the most thoroughly researched and interesting I have ever read on any subject Dominic Streatfield delves into his work with the zeal of an archeologist searching for El Dorado The detail of his research comes to life in his absolutely entertaining and enthralling prose He exceeds expectations by taking an already fascinating subject like cocaine and making it even interesting With colorful interviews and anecdotes some that stretch belief but are definitely examples of magical realism he shows what can become reality because of the influence a drug like cocaine has on the world

Characters Cocaine An Unauthorized Biography

Characters Cocaine An Unauthorized Biography Download â Cocaine An Unauthorized Biography 102 The story of cocaine isn't just about crime and profit; it's about psychoanalysis about empire building about exploitation emancipation and ultimately about power To tell the story of the twentieth century wi. Excellent book Streatfield has done his homework and really gives you the full picture He gives you the coca plants history all the way back to the Incas and explains how enmeshed it is in South American culture He then explains the difference between coca and it s refined cousins cocaine and eventually crack Streatfield sets the scene for the cocaine battle between South America and US drug enforcement agencies and explains why we will never eradicate this drug He offers different opinions on how to curtail it s use and harvestI have always had an issue with the US coming into another country and demanding they end a major economy In fact unrefined coca in it s natural form has many health benefits and is highly nutritious True cocaine is a terrible drug to get involved with In it s processed forms it is highly addictive and is detrimental to ones health in large doses However coca plants grow very easily even in nutrient poor soil The coca farmers Streatfield interviews all say the same thing growing coca has feed their families and provided an income for them Asking a family to stop producing something that provides their sole income is a ridiculous proposal I can see a parallel between cocaine and let s say McDonald s Both are highly processed materials that have serious health effects on a regular user America exports McDonald s and all it s health problems to other countries every year and we make a ton of income off this export You could argue McDonald s is propelling the obesity epidemic into a global issue True McDonald s isn t the sole factor in obesity however cocaine is not the sole factor on the global drug market Or for that matter we could look at another product the US grows distributes and profits from tobacco Highly addictive terrible health effects it is also highly profitable to the US I would argue that if any other country attempted to force the US to eradicate this plant we would be outraged and screaming to the heavens Lobbyist and politicians would begin the sad song of tobacco providing our poor farmers a livable income Well that s true for the coca farmers The UN has tried several replacement crops in hopes farmers would cultivate those instead Unfortunately so far no other crop has provided the farmers with a livable wage We aren t giving these farmers any alternative We can t ask someone to give up something that is feeding their family I think Streatfield put it best when he states that South America is being punished in the war on drugs because the US is unable to enforce it s own drug laws In my opinion the US has no right to expect citizens of other countries stop growing a plant they have grown for centuries is part of their culture and heritage provides a sustainable living all because we are unable to control it s use in our own country
