A Very-Not-Safe-for-Work Reminder of Why You Should Go Easy on the Coke
If you just came back your lunch break, you might not want to look at this. In fact if you're not a cocaine fiend, just go ahead and skip over this post. But to our friends who like to occasionally indulge in a bit of nose candy without thinking about the consequences of the drug trade, you might want to shock yourself into enlightenment with this highly not-safe-for-work, extremely graphic (seriously, we're warning you -- it involves a dead body) set of pictures from Vice. Yes, this man came from Colombia into Miami International Airport. Yes, he smuggled cocaine in by swallowing condoms full of the stuff. Yes, if this tragedy hadn't happened, he was going to poop them out before the coke found itself going up some SoBe trash's nose. Yes, one of the condoms exploded in his stomach. Yes, he died. Yes, these are pictures from the autopsy.
If you don't have the stomach for this kind of thing but still need a heavy lesson in the same subject, check out the 2004 film Maria Full of Grace.
