    So what he saying is, put it in your butt rather than your stomach. :-/

    The problem is that if I had ruptured in his instestines, cocaine would've absorbed into his system way way faster thus more likely he could've died. So having it in your stomach, increases your chance of breaking the container, but slightly less chance of dying. In your intestine, slightly less change of breaking the container, but higher chance of dying if one breaks.

    I'd smuggle drugs in my rectum not for the money or even the adrenaline. I just like stuff being shoved right up inside there.

    Got it. If you're gonna swallow drugs to smuggle them, make sure to take loads of antacids until you're ready for the pellet to come out. Informative. Thanks Vice!

    @Marcio Fernandes you could but just a limited amount, and very few of them, you will need the urge to poop. thats the whole point of swallowing them, you allow enough time for them to reach your colon, so you cant do this method in a 9 hour flight without risking it to poop on the plane, also these people dont eat, these increases the peristaltism and the pellets will get to the rectum faster.
