    This is great news! As a society we need to stop the use of cocaine. Too many people think recreational cocaine use is "cool" and doesn't harm anyone, but they couldn't be more wrong. The supply chain that gets cocaine from Columbian jungles to Africa, Europe and the US is filled with murder, bribery and extortion. Thousands of people are dying in Mexican and other drug wars and thousands more suffer daily because of it. The supply of cocaine will continue as long as the demand is there. If you buy cocaine you are funding these wars and the murder of innocent people, all cocaine is tainted with their blood. People have differing views about drug use and whether it is good and bad for you, but it is a fact that the cocaine trade is killing people, even more so than the drug itself. Stop the demand and help stop the wars.

    A great punishment would be to administer it to him until he's addicted, deprive him for a while as he goes through cravings and withdrawal symptoms and repeat the cycle just as he's starting to adapt to that too. It'd make him understand what he's doing to people
