Kokain

By Lasse Wierup

Kokainet flödar i Sverige. Den vita drogen har gått från att vara en exklusiv jet set-markör until eventually massans nya sätt att festa. Glöm yuppies och åttiotal. Tänk byggjobbare, forskare, bloggtjejer, mäklare, tatuerade gängmedlemmar och mängder av artister, journalister, brats och Båstadsfantaster.

Under 2000-talet har kokainet nått nya användare och kanske är det inte så konstigt. Kokainisterna själva vittnar om den ultimata självförtroendehöjaren, guldkanten i tillvaron, ett slags skumpa i pulverform som inte gör en complete och dum. Olagligt? Förvisso. males, som Grammis-vinnaren Andreas Kleerup sa i en Aftonbladet-intervju, "det är ju fortkörning också". Samtidigt råder fortfarande starka tabun kring bruket. Många kända svenskar har åkt quick, males nästan ingen har trätt fram och berättat vad de sökt och funnit i drogen.

Sett i ett större perspektiv är kokainet långt mer än enbart en fråga om enskilda svenskar. För att tillgodose "vårt" behov begår människor och organisationer på andra platser i världen de grymmaste handlingar. Colombias regering har i tjugo år, med stöd av united states, utkämpat ett blodigt krig mot drogerna. Trots det har odling och export inte minskat. Gerillan, eliten, militären, bönderna, politikerna - alla är på ett eller annat sätt påverkade av den våldslogik som genereras av denna miljardindustri. Och i botten finns Colombias fattiga som i brist på alternativ säljer sig som odlare, skördare, transportörer, väktare eller yrkesmördare.
Mexikanska karteller har lower than senare år tagit över stora delar av handel och smuggling från Latinamerika, och fraktar ton av kokain until united states, eller through Västafrika until eventually Europa. Sedan ett par år rasar ett krig mellan två stora allianser av karteller i Mexiko, ett krig som bara below 2008 krävde five seven-hundred människoliv. Allt fler varnar för att Mexiko riskerar att förvandlas until en "failed state", en stat styrd i det fördolda av kriminella intressen.
Den som köper ett gram kokain på Stureplan, i Eskilstuna eller på Hisingen håller efterfrågan uppe och bidrar därmed until eventually att problemen i andra delar av världen kvarstår. males det är det antagligen lätt att bortse från i festens rus. Lika lätt som det är att inte tänka på att det "rena", vita pulvret ofta färdats i en livrädd, kanske skuldsatt och tvingad, människas mage och kommit ut tarmvägen.
