Life through my myopic eyes.

Marijuana and Bathsalts, Oh Really?

The world was shocked to its very civilised core when the story broke about a face eating incident in Miami, Florida. For the uninitiated or those of you who were on the moon when this story broke, here are the basics of the story.

Rudi Eugene was shot to death by Miami Dade police while he was in the process of eating a homeless man’s face. When Rudi was approached by the police and told to stop he growled and continued eating. Rudi was naked at the time of this incident. My first thoughts were that he was overdosing on cocaine or PCP or some type of meth’s.

Amazingly I’ve not read anything about Rudi’s corpse being tested for anything other than marijuana and bathsalts. Does anyone else have that, huh, feeling? Now I am not a drugs expert by any means. I was too young for the Swinging Sixties and too timid to indulge in the marijuana movement of the Seventies. *Perhaps not much of a “movement” anywhere else but where I was growing up.*

I will admit that I was very puzzled over the testing for bathsalts. I didn’t realize until later that this was a term for a new “designer drug” that has similar effects to amphetamine and cocaine. So it came as no surprise that Eugene was tested for this. I was a bit taken aback when I read that police were still considering the marijuana issue.

As far as I know, Pot gives you the munchies all right, but not for someone else’s face. Doritos, pizza, anything in the fridge, yes. Faces no.

Of course what is also shocking, repulsive and weird is that Rudi was not alone in his ‘craving’ for human flesh. No less than ten other cases of cannibalism have been reported (or perhaps unearthed is a better term) since Rudi was gunned down in his birthday suit chomping another man’s face.

One or two of these ‘stories’ can be dismissed as the working of a sick and deranged mind. The others don’t really seem to have a lot in common with Rudi’s snack preferences. But, if you look at studies that scientists made on rats and their behaviour when their numbers got too big, it won’t come as too much of a surprise.

When a rat population or colony becomes overcrowded, scientists discovered the rats began fighting each other and resorting to cannibalism. In essence attacking each other and eating the loser. Since sociologically rats are our first cousin, so to speak, it begs the question, are we becoming overcrowded?

The obvious answer is yes. With advancements in modern medicine, better diet and less strenuous life styles, people are living longer. A longer life cycle equates to having more and more people. Ergo, we are all starting to act like the rats. Don’t believe me? Check out your fellow drivers and passengers the next time you get caught in a traffic jam. I know I’ve been angry and frustrated enough to go out and start biting someone after waiting for an hours long bottleneck to clear up.

But as disturbing as this thought is, and believe me folks are disturbed, or as fanciful (there are lots of zombie apocalypse theories out there at the moment) it might be, I think the media is giving us a clue where this will head.

Every article I’ve read repeatedly brings up the marijuana and bathsalts angle. Either through test results or the speculation of symptoms of either drug. I think that I will not be too surprised to see a governmental crack down of both drugs. Either that or the media is participating in a misdirection exercise and there really is a zombie apocalypse looming in our immediate future.

If that is the case? I’m going to start getting ready.  I’ll start watching George A. Romero‘s films and definitely watch Shaun of the Dead (we do live in England) and train. Can anyone tell me the quickest way to The Winchester?
