Up In Smoke
Last Thursday , the Libyan police burned drugs that were confiscated in drug crack downs across the country recently . They were taken to the beach in Tajoura and burned in the open air on the beach . A large crowd that had gathered to watch cheered as the drugs went up in flames .
One eye wittiness report said a local chicken was seen later staggering around from being intoxicated by the smoke in the air . I wonder was there a run on munches in the surrounding neighborhood stores since there was a slight northern breeze off the sea moving the smoke southwards over nearby residential homes .
This is a positive step in the right direction for the war on drugs here in Libya . Hope this continues and that maybe this will also lead to the establishment of free drug rehab clinics to help the addict over come this terrible plague that has contributed to the death of many here from HIV/ AIDES and assorted hepatitis's .
