Photon Carrier Pigeons

My I pondered the idea Photon Carrier Pigeons with the central theme being the disruption of laser beams but what if photons could be carrier particles for other matter? Would the implications be in speed, size, energy, molecular properties? I like to think if photons could be carrier particles for other matter someone might be saying ‘beam me up Dotty’ within 200 years. Scientist are making advancements, but are they the advancements we want (boner pills) or the advancements that truly get us excited (near instantaneous travel without being groped)? Who sets the priorities for where our society is headed, the average person or big business, special interests, and billionaires who want a new yacht? Science, it’s an everyday thing done by everyday people so it should benefit all people.
