Cocaine Detecting Flashlight

Sunday, April 5, 2009

"Police are shining ‘magic torches’ into clubbers’ faces to check for tiny traces of cocaine – and now employers and parents are being encouraged to follow suit.

Forces across the country are buying the £40 torches which can make any microscopic particles of cocaine or amphetamine that are invisible to the naked eye appear bright green.

Officers say the UV lights work as well as ones costing ten times as much and make it easy to spot the tin­iest traces of cocaine on nasal hair.

Sgt Alan Clayton said: ‘This simple piece of equipment will have a big impact on drug use in pubs and clubs. ‘Traces of cocaine are also left on the cheeks and chin that are not visible to the naked eye and these show up bright green, too. It really is amazing.’

They will detect cocaine that is at least 87 per cent pure and 78 per cent pure amphetamine of, including some, but not all, Ecstasy pills." - Source

A little too invasive, for one. And B, isn't it up to the individual what they put up their schnozz?

Good old Big Brother always dreaming up new creative futuristic ways to rule our lives.

On the other hand I have this funny picture of wall streeters going berzerk.

A lot of major cocaine, and arms traffickers on that list. Pappie Bush's CIA cohorts of course.

Especially in commutations including crack manufacturing and methamphetamine production

It's hard to argue the sleeze factor of the Bush brigade when you have so much evidence of their collective evil. Thanks, Lima. I always appreciate your input.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
