Drug experts are saying cocaine could be delivered faster than pizza

The Global Drug Survey wants to find out whether cocaine can be
delivered faster than a takeaway.

With a rise in drug orders through the dark web, it’s being
questioned whether sellers should launch premium delivery
services to meet demand.

As a result, GDS wants to find out about drug and food delivery
times across the world. In doing so, it’ll be comparing cocaine
and pizza.

Dr Adam Winstock
: “With the darknet facilitating the delivery of drugs
direct to people’s letter boxes and encrypted social media
platforms allowing people to order in secret, it’s not
surprising that there’d be an impact on the speed of delivery.

“Despite additional charges for swift drug delivery, the
attraction of convenience and discretion means it makes sense
for dealers to invest in premium delivery services.

“With all this in mind, we decided to look at efficiency and
speed of drug delivery across the world. And to make a symbolic
comparison, we’re using pizzas as a benchmark and, cocaine as
the test.”

Now let’s sit tight and wait for the results.
