Inquiring minds want to know.

Can You Get Cocaine Delivered Quicker Than A Pizza?

OK, so at first glance, this may seem a little trivial. After all, at GDS, we’re a serious bunch of academics, and we strive to carry out research that will help people have safer experiences with drugs. But in order to be effective in harm reduction, we think it is important that we have a broad and in-depth understanding of drugs and the way they’re used, which leads us to the question: Can you get cocaine delivered quicker than a pizza?

Drugs Delivered Directly To Your Doorstep

Can You Get Cocaine Delivered Quicker Than A Pizza?

Drug delivery is on the rise.

Many cities today are surveyed through CCTV cameras, which makes traditional street dealing less attractive to suppliers and consumers. With the darknet facilitating the delivery of drugs directly to people’s mailboxes and encrypted social media platforms allowing people to order in secret, it’s not surprising that there’d be an impact on the speed of delivery.

After all, fast food delivery has been around for years and has proven even more popular since online shopping has increased.

Amazon offers speedy delivery services with Prime and Amazon Now, providing consumers with fast, efficient delivery, at the touch of a button (not to mention the wide-spread acceptance of apps, such as Seamless, Grubhub, Postmates, Door Dash, etc.). And since drugs that take effect quicker are known to cause higher rates of dependence—will faster delivery of drugs make people buy more? 

Despite additional charges for swift drug delivery, the attraction of convenience and discretion means it makes sense for dealers to invest in premium delivery services.

With all this in mind, we decided to look at efficiency and speed of drug delivery across the world. And to make a symbolic comparison, we’re using pizzas as a benchmark and cocaine as the test.

If you want to help us provide advice on the best way to stay safe and happy when taking drugs (and are curious about drug delivery speeds!) please take part in the world’s largest drug survey (it’s completely anonymous and confidential, so there’s nothing to worry about!) RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW
