    To get rid of drugs, we need a sound strategy. basically, people buy drugs to have fun, or, because they are addicted to them. if they were to eat ships, and refrigerate the perishable goods, the drugs will lose their effects. i know this because people keep their drugs in the freezer to keep them cool and working, so, reversing the effects will reverse the quality - at least if someone gets their hands on shipped drugs, they will have hardly any effect.

    Now, for the 'domestic products.' if we were to observe that we can grow l.s.d. from rye in the garden, there is no way to stop this. it is the fungus that grows on it - it is poison - all drugs are poison. this poison gets into your body and kills cells and stuff, making you feel different. it alters your health and has permanent effects on your body and face! yuck!

    So, to get rid of drugs domestically, you need to have a vector sweeper at a police station or just outside. this sweeper will be able to identify and map where the right 'cellular collections' are, everything from dugs to guns to bombs. all you need to do is define what to look for, as, there is cellular makeup to everything, like coffee? if you were to look in a science textbook, it will show you how it looks and fits together, so, the police will be able to 'see' or set the machine to map where it is and what it is.

    Getting the vectors up is hard work, although cheap and efficient. basically, you need to strip away the depth and breadth of the laser beam, and, use something that will be collected on the other end of the laser, like a reflection in a pool of water. this will be like where you see through a glass window - the glass is there, you can touch it, you can see it, and you can see through it - think of the drugs, guns and bombs as the glass, okay?

    Of course, setting it up is not that hard, but you need to have a 'rebound area' with the sensor. if you were to shine the light through the 'laser' you will find that i needs some sort of light gas with mass to collect and report the dimensions of the substance. this can be done with radiation, like in a hopsital - maybe using alpha radiation will be safe?
