POLITICAL: The “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” has been officially lost

Why the war on drugs has been made redundant

For every ‘designer drug’ the authorities ban, clandestine labs are churning out a new version. No wonder the law can’t keep up…

When Germany identified the substances and banned them in early 2009, new cannabinoids, again never before seen outside the lab, had replaced them within weeks and this is what has been happening ever since. One gets banned and another novel substance takes its place almost immediately. Professional but clandestine labs are rifling the scientific literature for new psychoactive drugs and synthesising them as fast as the law changes. In one of the most interesting developments, a cannabinoid detected in 2012, named XLR-11, was not only new to the drug market but completely new to science. Several previously unknown substances have turned up since. The grey market labs are not only pushing new substances on to the drug market, they are actually innovating drug design. The human testers select themselves of course, unaware of what they’re taking, sometimes leading to disastrous results. Information about the dangers of new substances is usually nonexistent.

The whole process has also been an unwitting experiment in drug policy. Despite the free availability of substances as pleasurable as already banned drugs, we have not seen a massive increase in problem users and drug mortality rates have been falling. Furthermore, even with the newly introduced “instant bans”, drug laws are simply not able to keep up.

Currently, it is barely possible to detect new drugs at the rate they appear. It has long been clear that the drug war approach of criminalising possession rather than treating problem drug-users has been futile. The revolution in the recreational drug market is a stark reminder of this reality. The war on drugs has not been lost, it has been made obsolete.

OK, can we now decriminalize “drugs”. 

Let’s recognize reality!

The FDA and Big Pharma are in bed with each other. The underground drug market is how the REAL free market should operate.

Consumers Reports, Underwriters Laboratory, and informed people are our only defense.

Since time immemorial, humans get high. 10% or so become addicts. The percentage varies but that 10% seems to be a floor.

Instead of wasting resources and ruining lives, let’s get back to basic medicine.

Argh!

But politicians and bureaucrats like to use force on victims of addiction because it is PC and their easy to campaign against.

Meanwhile the politicians and bureaucrats are the real problem. And, some of them are criminals.

PRIMAL: Chemicals are showing dangerous side effects

What’s Disrupting Your Endocrine System?
Posted on March 9, 2013

Phthalates used to soften plastics are among the endocrine-disrupting chemicals that a new report says are harming our health.

The United Nations has published a comprehensive and disturbing expert report suggesting that hundreds of hormone-disrupting toxins (known as “Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals” or EDCs) may be increasing the rate of sexual deformities, infertility, cancers, and other reproductive problems in people and wildlife around the world.

This is another reason to not eat the “manufactured” foods.

LIBERTY: I OWN my own body!

Self-Ownership

Attribute to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

*** begin quote ***

America has become a statist, freedom-hating, catch-phrase espousing, ignorant, and nightmarish shadow of its own, once great, (though still flawed) self. And the easiest way that we can think to prove this claim, follows:

I OWN my own body! Ownership means; dominion! I control or don’t, I choose or don’t, I determine or don’t, every single facet of my controllable conscious existence. I’m limited by nothing but reality and the respect of others same right to the lack of said limitations.

*** and ***

The “government” claims dominion over you every time it demands an ID from you to buy alcohol! It claims dominion over you every time it demands a card from your doctor to buy marijuana or to get a permit to carry a gun! It claims dominion every time is assumes it has a rightful place in your medical business! It claims dominion every time is supposes it knows how to better prepare you for your retirement. It claims dominion every time it suggests or demands of you whom to kill or whom to die for. And it insults all of us to a point of intolerable degradation when it locks up people who video record its agents (the cop’s) violating the few limitations it still purports to impose upon itself!

The state is controlling your body and what you can and cannot do with it. They have already invoked a weird version of right-wing state socialism, and a total left-wing Nazi police state is quick on its heels. The powers that be are laughing because most Americans haven’t the faintest idea what is actually going on. They seem to know something is wrong, but being philosophically crippled as they are (thanks to the public school system) they haven’t the faintest idea how to determine the cause. In public school you are taught that the “government” is your friend, you are taught that “rights come from “government” that it’s okay to skip the two when you count to ten during the Bill of Rights. You are taught to bow down and lick the hand that “teaches” you, or else detention and a call to your parents will ensue. And if your parents take your side, then they are in trouble! You’re taught that if it wasn’t for “government”, the big-bad-business man will come in and take over everything and children will work for two cents an hour in sweat shops. Or that “terrorists” (ever notice the smallest army is always called a “terrorist?”) will be on every plane and every street corner.

The essence of liberty is what you can do to yourself.

The Gooferment is the new plantation owner!
