drug overdose

do you ever sit on your bed thinking why you are still alive? after all the overdoses, the cigarettes you smoke, the new drugs you tried? you’re still alive after all the alcohol, the accidents, the drawbacks. you live even if you destroy yourself every day, despite you are conscious of you actions. you are still fucking alive and you don’t even know why

Do you ever sit there and wonder why you’re still alive? After all the attempted overdoses on painkillers, the amount you smoke, all the alcohol you’ve consumed, the experiments with drugs..You do all this self destructive shit and you’re still alive and you don’t know why?

The bags of cocaine seen here in the stomach were swallowed by the victim as a form of concealment. This method is also used by persons smuggling drugs. A latex condom is typically used as a container. Occasionally, the container ruptures or leaks, and a drug overdose ensues, as happened here.

An acute cocaine overdose presents with a number of symptoms. Body temperature will dramatically increase and a person will typically experience a drug induced psychosis. Vasoconstriction is one of the main effects of cocaine, and this results in a dramatically increased blood pressure. The most common cause of death in these cases is a heart attack, but a person can also die from a stroke or seizures. 

The LD50 (the dose in which that substance has a 50% mortality rate) for LSD is amazingly high in contrast to the amounts needed for it to cause any felt effects in the human body. There’s very few cases of death from LSD whereas alcohol is one of the most lethal drugs on the planet. This is definitely not a call to prohibit alcohol again. We saw how that worked the first time. But we also see how drug prohibition is working right now which is not at all.
