Hello everyone. As usual I have been looking over my list of sources and sage feeds daily to look at what is going on in the world, focusing as usual on drug issues and the insanity known as government policy. I could post a bunch of articles like I have a dreadful tendency to do but, you know, I can sum it all up fairly shortly, lol: everything is the same.
The DEA is committing atrocities against medical marijuana patients; cities here and there are considering needle exchange programs that could potentially save many lives and most people are saying it's a horrible idea--letters to editors are being written about how we cannot encourage dopers to commit their horrible crimes and tear away the moral fabric of society and it would probably (insinuation) be better to allow AIDS and such to continue rather than give the impression of being soft on drugs; thousands of people are being sent to jail; arguments are being made about how dangerous marijuana is and how it will make you a crazy bloodthirsty psychopath who eats christian babies for breakfast; every substance that could possibly be used for something worthwhile for therapy, recreation (god forbid) or anything other than making vast sums of money for the industries that have proper lobbying resources are being examined to see how we can stop people from using them by making criminals out of those who use them, and such substances that are not already outlawed are in the process of being banned; countries all over the world are sucking amerika's cock to get funding for the alleged purpose of fighting drugs which will most likely be used for other purposes such as maintaining regimes that will put foreign investors interests over those of the peoples of said countries; having fun and trying to expand your mind is still an offense beyond redemption; people are still writing great articles about better ways to deal with the various issues of drug policy--these articles will not be read by anybody other than those who already agree.
That is your update on drugs in the news this week.
