The oceans are incredibly important to life on Earth and it is my belief that we must protect them at all costs. The plastic waste pollution in our planet’s oceans is quite concerning. There’s a giant floating mass of plastic bigger than Texas floating in the Pacific for crying out loud!
However, on Wednesday, I came across the result of an alarming new study released this week from King’s College London in collaboration with the University of Suffolk that says cocaine was found in the system of shrimp caught in rural rivers of Suffolk County.
Of course, it was! We’re polluting their waterways with our Starbucks cups! How else are they supposed to cope?
So, the study didn’t outright say “Shrimp are doing cocaine”, however, am I expected to believe that drug dealers are just dumping enough coke into the rivers of Suffolk County to get shrimp high on coke? You tell me which one is more likely.

Or, just watch this video and I’ll explain everything, including how we can confront this potential epidemic head-on.

And if you enjoy pictures relating to animals and cocaine, I drew this a while ago after reading about Pablo Escobar’s hippos running around Mexico.
