The launch of a campaign by the Ana Liffey Drug Project (ALDP) and the HSE to “reduce the harms associated with snorting, smoking or injecting cocaine” as it becomes easier to get good coke in
this town Ireland.
Cocaine aka ‘toot’, ‘nose beer’, ‘foo foo dust’, ‘bugle”, ‘chang’, ‘beak’, ‘noggin napalm’ or ‘Mr Chop’ is reportedly
a hell of a drug “more available and at its highest purity than it has been in a decade”.

Cork-set comedy The Young Offenders has been picked up for international sales this week.
Based on the true story of Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure in 2007, The Young Offenders is a road flick about two inner-city teenagers who look to cash in, when a drug-trafficking boat capsizes off the coast of West Cork, spilling 61 bales of cocaine.
According to ScreenDaily:
Carnaby Sales and Distribution has acquired international sales rights to Irish comedy The Young Offenders.
The film has proven a box office hit in its local market, taking €1m for Wildcard Distribution. Vertigo recently snapped the film up for UK, US and Australia/NZ.
The deal was brokered by Carnaby International’s Head of Acquisitions, Lorianne Hall, together with Peter Foott of Vico Films.
As mentioned, the film has already been picked up for UK, American and Aussie releases.
In a morbidly brilliant stroke of marketing chutzpah, the drug gangs of Rio de Janerio have embraced the spirit of corporate branding and illegal doping that defines the modern Olympic games.
One of 93 baggies of cocaine seized by police in the Lapa district of the city this week. The warning reads ‘keep out of the reach of children’.
