As awful as the Summer was, the second half of 2020 is likely to be far worse in regards to the coronavirus. BARDA whistleblower Rick Bright has stated that the Fall & Winter of 2020 are likely to be the "darkest period in recent American memory". Yikes. With the USPS already greatly backed up due to funding issues, this could spell disaster for those who rely on the mail for their substances of choice. That's surprisingly a lot of people. While buying drugs online has its own share of risks, it's also safer in some ways than going to your local drug dealer. Silk Road-esque online drug markets allow customers to check buyer reviews & vet vendors before buying as well as shopping from the comfort of their own homes. This cuts out the risk of getting pulled over with drugs in your car, which is how most users get caught. It also reduces the likelihood of buying drugs cut with fentanyl & other adulterants.
But this article isn't intended to promote one method of drug-buying over another. The intention is to remind you that, no matter how you purchase your substances of choice, you need to be planning ahead to what's likely to be a very chaotic & scary time in the coming months. Save money & buy what you need NOW rather than waiting...especially if you rely on the postal service to deliver your stuff. Instead of hoarding toilet paper, buy drugs in advance of when you'll actually use them. But do it responsibly and orderly. Keep your house clean & organized so you don't get in trouble if a cop happens to drop by. But don't give them a reason to. The dumbest move you could make is to host loud parties or fight with your significant other with lots of drugs in your house. Be discreet. One thing you don't want is to end up in jail or prison during COVID/flu season.
When shopping for the 2nd half of 2020, don't just pick up recreational drugs. Get all the OTC & prescription meds you anticipate needing in case you get sick or can't make it to the store. Things like Nyquil, Afrin nasal spray, ibuprofen, Imodium, Benadryl & whatever else you take when you're sick or in pain. Even if you don't get hit with corona, you will likely get some strain of cold, flu or stomach virus because that's just what happens in the cold part of the year. If you're a supplement person, grab some of those now. Whatever will keep you out of your doctor's office or the store aisles when sickness is at its worst. Every 'emergency run' you make to Walgreen's or CVS increases your risk of falling ill and spreading sickness to others. Masks help greatly but staying away from sick people (social distancing) is even better. While doomsday prepping, stock up on dry goods, face masks & hand sanitizer with at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol. That's the minimum amount needed to neutralize coronaviruses like COVID-19.
If this sounds a little like Chicken Little / Sky Is Falling overthinking, you may be right. But better to be cautious than cavalier in a pandemic. Drug users especially need to take extra precautions to ensure our health & safety from all the pitfalls of living in a militarized police state where drugs are illegal. Once kids get back in the classroom, immune systems start falling like dominoes every year--viruses & bacteria start flying and there's no turning back. It's a matter of time before COVID cases soar even higher than they already are & we're on lockdown again. Plan accordingly & get what you need so you can at least be high while the world burns.
