Drug deaths in Scotland hit record high

Addiction is such a tough disorder. It’s not about morals. I don’t understand why we’re so nonchalant about the fact that in the past decade, almost half a million people in the United States have died from opioid drug overdoses. I think that if we can better understand addiction, we will be able to develop non-addictive treatments. CBD seems to be a solution. More about treatment methods on  https://addictionresource.com/drug-rehab/free-rehabs/

And you're gone. 

This latest spate in spam is quite mystifying. This account started up several months ago and didn't even post any links for a while. And on the surface, they sound quite legit - as if they're trying to help. The fact that they keep posting links and never choose their favourite team is what usually outs them (I was going to say and never talks about football, but you can level that accusation at me). What's the deal here? Are they getting paid to boost page rankings or something? Maybe @Mr X can clarify.

What you did there. I seen it...

 

These bots are probably drug dealers who know P&B is a prime hotbed of weekend powder sniffers and pill poppers. (For full time smackheads see Hibs thread and Throbber).

 

They first make people aware that help is out there, then start punting them their gear and use raising awareness of addiction support as their caveat to pedal their wares.

 

That’s how I roll anyway. Wanting anything?

Miguel Sanchez the next to fall under the above set of standards IMO

Not really! 

They're almost certainly bots but usually they join and then post straight away. They're usually dead easy to spot as they often bump old threads that are vaguely related.

Figures released have shown that drug related deaths in Scotland have reached record levels, with 934 deaths being attributed to illegal drug usage across the country in 2017. 

 

Not far off the figures for Coronavirus this year.  Such an overrated problem.

What's that you say, @Cardinal Richelieu?

*No chosen team.

*Never posts about football.

*Posts links.

<<<Worried.

Pigeonholing the demographic of P&B would be nigh on impossible without years of studeous research and analysis. Just listing the Poster categories would be a tough ask....

VLs, perverts, Alcoholics, insomniacs, bigots, serial killers, Da's, puddle drinkers, psychopaths, sociopaths, narcissists, drug users (various scales of usage), pseudo intellectuals, Communists, Fascists, Socialists, Centrists, Conservatives, Nationalists......this list is non exhaustive!
