Cocaine dying for a Snort, AIDS

    The majority of drugs being used in Ireland will at some point be concealed in the orifice of a drug mule (mule is the name for the person who moves the smaller quantities of drugs around). The majority of drug mules are drug addicts and the majority of drug addicts have Hepatitis or fully blown AIDS (6,000 registered AIDs carriers in Ireland). In one recent case in Dublin a drug mule with AIDs was concealing drugs in her vagina as she made a delivery to an upmarket party in Ballsbridge, while making her delivery she had her period and in a panic she tried to remove the package of cocaine concealed in her vagina, but the package busted and the cocaine was covered in blood. The women knew she could not return to the drug dealer who had sent her and so she used talcum powder to mix with the cocaine and conceal the blood. The woman delivered the drugs to the party and everyone began snorting openly, all were too drunk to notice the talcum powder mixed with the cocaine and so consumed the woman’s AIDs infected blood.
    This is not unusual, and many party goers are consuming AIDs and Hepatitis infected drugs each and every day in Ireland. What might look grand and clean on a glass coffee table or ceramic cistern top on a Saturday night has already been in the orifice of at least one AIDs or Hepatitis infected drug addict. However, as these diseases can take years to detect, many young Irish people will continue to die in ignorance.
    The number of deaths caused by drugs in Ireland has risen by 51 per cent over a six-year period, research has shown.
    Figures released by the Health Research Board (HRB) showed that 638 people died in 2009, compared with 422 in 2004.
    A total 3,334 deaths could be linked with drugs over that entire period.
    HRB researcher Dr Suzi Lyons pointed out that of that figure, 2,015 were caused by poisoning, while 1,319 were deaths of drug users brought about by certain kinds of trauma or medical conditions.
    Alcohol was accountable for 40 per cent of all poisoning deaths during the six-year period, while heroin caused 21 per cent.
    “The inclusion of alcohol-only poisonings in the figures highlights the detrimental impact of alcohol in drug-related deaths, while the rise in the number of deaths where heroin is implicated is also of concern,” said Dr Lyons.
    Heroin was linked to 90 deaths in 2008, but that number rose by 20 per cent to 108 the following year.
    Despite these increases, the overall number of deaths — caused both by poisoning and drug-related trauma — dropped slightly from 641 in 2008 to 638 in 2009.
    “While the most recent figures suggest a stabilisation in the overall number of drug-related deaths and deaths among drug users, we have still seen a significant rise in these deaths in Ireland over the last six years,” Dr Lyons said.
    The figures, included in the HRB’s National Drug-Related Deaths Index, showed that the main cause of trauma deaths, not linked with drug poisoning, was hanging, while deaths brought about by medical conditions that had no relation to poisoning were mainly caused by heart attacks.
    The research also showed that in 2009, two-thirds (68 per cent) of those who died from drug poisoning were male.
    The majority of those poisoning deaths were aged between 25 and 44, with over half of those 37 or younger.
