Drugs, Inc.: San Francisco Meth Zombies (Full Episode)

Watch the short scene starting at 43:12.

Did you notice?

I hope you did.

Let me show you: an addict – in desperate need of the next dose – is injecting meth in public, in front of a church and in broad daylight. He’s surrounded by a camera-team filming. The whole process is shown without censoring, without blurring in FullHD. When the syringe hurts a little and the junkie guy curses, his curse gets bleeped out.

What’s the value system behind this? What culture comes up with such a logic? What has to happen for a society to decide drugs are not dangerous via “infection by proxy”, but curse words are?

Exactly.

(Note: This post originally appeared on my now closed Tumblr blog, which was intentioned to be the place for my shorter thoughts and ideas. After reading Gary Vaynerchuck’s new book “Jab, jab, jab, right hook” I’ve come to the conclusion that I wasn’t speaking the right slang for Tumblr and therefore re-imported those posts here as I still find them valuable as food for thought. I hope you enjoy those, too.)
