Taliban is Worse Than Heroin

May 6, 2008

The Marines of Bravo Company’s 1st Platoon have been sleeping next to a field of poppies, while the troops in the 2nd Platoon hiit the heavy opium bulbs as they walk through the fields. Ironically, the Afghan laborers continue to scrape the plant’s resin smile and wave.
Last week, the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit moved into southern Helmand province, the world’s largest opium poppy-growing region, sfilled with green fields of the illegal plants that produce the main ingredient of heroin. The Taliban derives up to $100 million a year from the harvest by taxing and charging farmers safety fees. That money will be used to go buy weapons for use against U.S., NATO and Afghan troops.

Contrary to what one might thing, the Marines are not destroying the plants at all, but rather they are reassuring the local farmers and villagers that the poppies won’t be harmed or eradicated. Commanding officers and strategists say the troops would alienate people and drive them to arm themselves if they eliminated the impoverished Afghans’ only source of income.

Many Marines in the field are confused by the policy, having come from a country whose policies are to hate drugs like Christians hate the Devil.

Busted CSI Star Speaks About His Drug Arrest

May 4, 2008

Dourdan\'s Mugshot

If you missed the original story (the link at the bottom of this article), CSI star Gary Dourdan was arrested while passed out in his car in Palm Springs, CA. Found in the car with him was cocaine, ecstacy, and heroin. He was arrested promptly. Now, the CSI star speaks out about the event and what followed in an email to Access Hollywood. Here is an excerpt of that email:

“Obviously I certainly wish I hadn’t been responsible for so many people getting to the festival’s VIP area,” Dourdan wrote, referring to California’s annual Coachella music festival, which he regularly attends. “And the after party, it ran me ragged, but I’m glad pulling over did prevent a DUI. I recommend not driving at all, but a little kip (nap) is always good (on either side of the road.”

“I am blessed that the Sgt. realized that the luggage carrying whatever they found was not mine and that my tests have been coming back negative. I’ve been happy to cooperate in any way to clear myself and go on with my blessed life.”

Says Douchebag: “I am so sorry to all my fans, especially the young ones, like Taylor Swift, who I should’ve been supporting with my daughter instead of driving tired in the desert,” he wrote. “I am planning events to get the word out that you don’t need a bunch of nasty chemicals to have a good time. Just good friends, family, good music and a good honest spirit full of faith.”

April 29, 2008

CSI’s Gary Dourdan was busted in Palm Springs yesterday on suspicion of possessing heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs. Sources have said the actor was found sleeping in his car at 5:21 AM as police approached the vehicle and made the bust.

Apparently, Dourdan then spent time in Palm Springs jail and eventually posted $5,000 and bailed out.
