Smart Bombs for the Drug War

The science of genetic modifying plants, to provide commercial benefit, has been around for quite some time now.

Production of heroin is at an all time high. (pardon the pun) They are talking about another decade of fighting heroin exports and billions wasted in that fight.

Why can't we put these two issues together?

Why not contract Monsanto or ADM to develop a version of the poppy plant, with the drug production gene crippled? Then you fly over Afghanistan, dusting those poppy fields with the GMO pollen.

Before they know it, the drug producers are saddled with an enormous labor burden, making them weed out unaffected plants, and compromising their distillation processes. Black markets go through the roof, and addicts dry out.

Do the same for that high potency pot, and you have the added benefit of pissing off all of the Organic anti-GMO moonbats, crying over their empty bongs.

Crying over their empty bongs.

Good one.

And not a bad idea either, I might add!
Also, FIRST!

Heh, That's pretty funny. Could we do the same for the addicts?

Brilliant! That's why I leave my thinking to you and Karl Rove.

As fitch said, We let you smart ones do the thinking!!

Didn't they try that (or something similar) with paraquat? As I recall, it just made the hippies sick. Well, that's actually a good thing!

Insol, you're a jeenyus!

CUG - Maybe then we can get some real work out of them for a change. There doesn't seem to be a big market demand for red-eyed paranoia.

DPT - Doesn't marajuana kill sperm cells? Maybe the scientists should keep that property intact, and then add it to the poppy plant. See what happens when you get a solid conservative blogger think tank put together?

fiar - You are not being fair (same letters as fiar, heh) to yourself. I would never have proposed the "Goats gone Wild" terrorist distraction ploy. Very original and amusing.

ssssteve - See above ;)

Gunnnutt - Paraquat is an herbicide. Not a bad plan. The beauty of the GMOs, is that they don't know they have crap, until they have completely raised it and cultivated it. Even then, they will waste all this time, scratching their heads, wondering why all their dope has turned to soap. Even worse, it's likely they have mixed the seeds from the new plants together, polluting the gene pool for future crops. Better living through modern biochemistry, I say.

puff puff pass would turn into puff puff puke...

great plan! just keep your hands off of my stash! (kidding)

FIAR said...

Heh. Goats gone Wild.

Me was funny wehn me writed that.

My God, it's not only an amusing idea but I believe you're on to something. Why isn't this done?
