“When Mao came to power in 1949 there were an estimated 20 million drug users in China. Using harsh methods, including executions, the Communists were able to rid China of its drug problem almost over night. But in the 1980s when China opened up more and eased its border controls drugs began flowing into the country and more people began using them, with drug use really taking off in the 2000s. The manager at one drug rehab center told the Washington Post, “It just boomed. Yesterday, no drugs This morning, all over the place.”

    Well you have to be pretty stoned to take what ever the cadres say with a straight face. I have to be pretty stoned to take life in this fun house of death. But why pay? Just go to the washroom, any washroom take a deep breath, and boom you’re stoned, Even better if there’s a line up. Getting high on Jenkem.
