Coke. A refreshing drink as a kid.
Known as pop, or soda in parts of the US, it is a carbonated, sweetened drink. Not something I like now but, it is a drink.
Coke. Name cocaine, a.k.a blow, flake, freebase, crack. An illicit drug found in addicts, abusers. “Cocaine (C17H21NO4) is a powerfully addictive, psychoactive, stimulant drug. “
So much now in the news about Orange Park in Florida. 12 dogs tested positive for coke. Cocaine. Blow.
So… in some illiterates’ minds, the dog has to run faster? As if live baiting weren’t bad enough, drug them with an illicit drug? Drugs.com:
“Cocaine’s effect is described as euphoric with increased energy, reduced fatigue, and heightened mental altertness. Users may be talkative, extraverted, and have a loss of appetite or need for sleep. Cocaine’s psychoactive, pleasurable effects are short-lived without continued administration.
Cocaine is metabolized primarily in the liver, with less than one percent of the parent drug being excreted in the urine. The primary metabolite is benzoylecgonine and is detectable in the urine for up to eight days after cocaine consumption.”
How bad is this abuse of drugs? It hits the newswires. If the industry and if they had 100 eyes, this would be the one hundredth black one.
‘It's at least the second instance this year of racing greyhounds testing positive for cocaine.” “The documents are dated June 9 and say that trainer Charles McClellan "is a threat to animals in his control, custody and care."”
“One of the dogs in the latest case tested positive six times, including during a race where it finished first. The records showed the dog had cocaine in its system for two of its best races, Theil said.”
The industry is lax in punishment. Maybe because there is always a buck for them in the whole situation? Gad, can’t risk future winners and our subsidies?
“The man responsible, championship “dogman” Malcolm McCallister, lost his racing license. He didn’t even pay a fine and no criminal charges were ever brought.”
Do you want to know what some of you turn into rescue face? Osteo, liver damage, broken limbs. Ah, that doesn’t matter to the industry, right? One less. It wasn’t a winner anyway…
Tell me, if your human child one was one of the entitled dramas, who played video games all day, would you give it coke? No, don't answer...
The industry needs to wake the hell up. NOW! You are NOT caring for your dogs and for all that is holy, you do NOT love your dogs. You use them for money and the hell with the dog that does not perform, coke, amphetamines whatever.
And to the deniers out there, it's on record now.
