That's the kind of bs that's going to get drones banned for consumer use, and piss off everyone who enjoys flying as a hobby

Drones shouldn't be allowed, or they need to be more regulated. This is creepy as hell. They could record inside people's apartments

I personally wouldn't do it as I don't want to mix work and drugs, but why do u think so? As long as u don't take too much and become anxious, it would increase your energy levels and improve your mood while ur high

ps the video is not fake for sure, those guys are snorting. The only question is whether that´s citadel´s office, but the video itself is not fake.

but why do u think so

Because coke doesn't last, especially when snorted. Effects quickly disappear and you need to redose after half an hour. Amphetamines (that includes Adderall) on the other hand last several hours and arguably provide better mental clarity - coke makes you too euphoric, it's a party drug rather than a study/work drug.

There's no indication in the video that the product snorted is coke though.

That's true, but as long as you keep redosing it should be fine. Also, I'd say that redosing each 30m is too extreme, the effect doesn't disappear after 30m. You can peak after 30m, but after that, there is a slow comedown. The euphoria disappears quicker, but the alertness stays for longer. Plus you don't need to be peak high all the time. You can keep working once the effect is gone, it is not like if you don't redose you feel very low - that's an extended myth.  

I completely agree, amphetamines are better to work... but maybe they are more interested in improving their mood rather than their energy levels, for which coke would work better. Also, the fact that amphetamines last for longer has a downside: If they are planning to go to sleep at some point, coke is the way to go.

And yeah we don't know for fact if it is coke, but chances are it is. If it was amphs, they would probably take a pill; I don't imagine ppl snorting speed in the office
