That’s Haram in every way, shape, form, dimension, and time.

re: #1 The War TARDIS

Pretty much everything they do is haram by normal standards.

The drug angle is reminiscent of Hassan-i Sabbah and his Ḥashshāshīn (though it’s unknown if that part of the story was true).

So since we’re talking amphetamines, anyone have a good Breaking Bad joke they’d like to crack?

A lot of militaries have issued amphetamines.

In the Air Force they are currently nicknamed ‘go-pills’. Afterwards ‘no-go pills’ are issued. Those are often Ambien.

My father served in the American Army during World War 2. One time he mentioned the use of amphetamines in combat. He said that there was a “significant price paid for their use”, and that it took a long while to recover after using them. He also said that the Germans were particularly known for using them.

I always assumed that the price he was referring to was both the individual physical toll, and the increased number of casualties among the users.

In Afghanistan, two US pilots bombed a Canadian unit who were training at a firing range. They killed 4 Canadians and injured 8. The pilots were prosecuted by the Air Force. Part of the pilots’ defense was that they were ordered to use ‘go-pills’.

Amphetamines can be very dangerous to cardiovascular health with regards to long term use, even in physically fit people.
