The sad truth is that she probably just wanted her internal pain to end, and now she is with out pain. this is a mental illness not often recognised in Japan, depression. And it affects millions. RIP

actually lipscombe, he isn't a hardened user of coke, but moreover an alcohol imbiber, it seems that almost all Japanese men are great consumers of alcohol, which I might remind everyone, is also a drug, and a drug with very horrible consiquenses, more deaths, family violence, road related accidents etc, it is just a "legal" drug.Yes I find that being in possesion of illegal substances is punishable, my issue is that we cannot find out ANYTHING because the Japanese government doesn't allow any contact between someone being held, without being charged. they have up to 21 days to hold someone with out charge. In that time they may interrogate as much or as often as they want, 24 hrs a day if they decide. If indeed the outcome is deportation, then PLEASE put him on a plane back home, but if you are found with just a small "personal" amount then you weren't trafficing and the only one you are harming is yourself. lets face it, his job is gone, his family humiliated, his coworkers shocked and his life as he knew it is over. Why not just send him back on the next flight?

a close friend has just had the same thing happen to him and we have no way of finding out how he is. We have now idea what will happen and where. we have had no contact and he is not able to communicate with us either. our embassy has not yet been contacted by our friend so we dont even know where he is. The Japanese judicial system is so secretive that it makes it very difficult to asses the situation. If anyone has any ideas please help
