    Yes, I have read that in the Guardian this evening. And yes. Ouch.

    Maybe the thread title could be amended to read "woman smuggles cocaine in breast implants"? Mind you, either way it is something rather........unpleasant to mull over.

    Actually one of them leaked, and she was taken to a hospital.

    Assuming it's pure, and that one 25% pure gram of cocaine can be sold for 50€, you do the math. Besides, drug smugglers are not known for their respect for human life, so as far as we know, that woman could have been coerced into doing that.

    They could get more in an "third-trimester" womb-implant.

    Or even a tushy-implant(2).

    :rolleyes:

    Oh! She is lucky then. Nothing like having a lethal dose of cocaine wrapped up in a balloon in your body and having it leaking. Doh!

    This is a stupid stupid move though. She is lucky she isn't dead.

    I hadn't realised that one of them leaked - how awful - until you mentioned it. And, of course, there could well have been the element of coercion - something that sources I read failed to mention as a possibility.

    Nicely phrased.

    Awful. Just awful.

    ;) Okay, full marks. Very good.

    Touché. ;)

    Thank you. And fair comment.....;)

    Apparently the smugglers were watching too much TV ...

    Didn't Ali G prefigure this?

    Reminds me of a classic interview between Ali G and former US Surgeon General C. Everett Koop. Highlights below:

    "But why can't we use technology and let's say take out some of the..boring organs and stick in like a CD player and like wicked speakers…you're like booming out…it's like walking sound system...Well what about sticking a mobile phone in there, surely there's room in there for that."

    I can actually live with the fact that there are people stupid enough to do this. I know sometimes it's out of desperation and all they want is a chance of a better life that they'll otherwise never attain where they come from. I totally get it. What I think is horrific is when animals are used for this type of thing. They're defenseless creatures who have no say so and that really pisses me off. I hear the sad stories all the time, of how these drug traffickers cut open dogs and stuff them with heroin and cocaine. Those people deserve to be thrown into a prison cell and let them rot for life.
