An Absinthe by Any Other Name Does Not Smell as Sweet...
You have to love those random messages you receive from friends traveling abroad. A couple months ago my friend Judy wrote me from Mexican beach town Playa del Carmen with the news that $140 cannabis-adorned bongs were being sold inside the local Walmart down there. And this morning my friend Erin hit me up with a photo of something equally surprising out of Spain.

Erin has seen the future, friends. And it comes in the form of Cannabis Absinthe.

Sure enough, it’s all over the place in Europe. Distributor Antonio Nadal calls its Absenta Cannabis 80 “green ... [Read More]

An Auburn University lab technician has been charged with selling a gallon of the "date rape" drug GHB, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

5 Harmful Myths We Need to Stop Telling About LSD
First synthesized by chemist Albert Hofmann in 1938, lysergic acid diethlamide, commonly known as LSD, remains one of the most spectacularly sensationalized and popularly misunderstood drugs.

Capable of inducing intense sensory hallucinations and provoking overpowering (and sometimes unpleasant) reflections about the nature of reality, this powerful ... [Read More]

Ketamine Being Trialled As Treatment For Depression With Some Success But Jury Still

Ketamine’s potential as an antidepressant is creating conversation in psychiatry circles.

IT was first used as an anaesthetic on American soldiers during the Vietnam War before becoming a party drug at dance raves in the 1990s. It has been implicated in date rape cases but has eased the pain of millions.

A report by Channel Ten’s The Project reveals how researchers are excited by ketamine as an antidepressant with potentially stunning results.

“There’s been nothing like it in the history of treating depression,” says Professor... [Read More]

Teen Dies After One Hit Of Designer Drug NBOMe
EAST BRIDGEWATER (CBS) – Local police departments, district attorneys and federal drug agents are sounding a warning about a powerful designer drug that’s growing in popularity among teenagers.

The synthetic drug is called NBOMe and is also known as “Smiles” or “25i”. It is marketed to teens as legal LSD.

Monday, Everett Police put out a warning after finding it in their city. Last month an Acton woman was indicted in federal court after allegedly selling the drug to a Concord teen who overdosed. Last year, the drug took a deadly turn in East Bridgewater.

Two NY City Cops Wrongfully Forced Into Rehab by Their Superiors Awarded $226,000
The NYPD tried to make them go to rehab — but a Manhattan federal jury said, “No, no, no.” Three police officers who claimed they were wrongfully placed in an alcohol abuse treatment program toasted their whopping $226,000 legal victory against the city, union officials said Saturday.

Officers Kathleen Makinen, Jamie Nardini and Angel Torres sued in 2011 after the NYPD misdiagnosed them with drinking problems and forced them into rehab, court records show. A jury Thursday awarded two of the plaintiffs a total of $151,000, Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said. The third cop settled the suit earlier for $75,000.

“We are disappointed with the decision and are considering our options,” said the city... [Read More]

Flakka Hype Allegedly Behind a Slew of Strange Arrests in South Florida
Police and rescue units responded Friday morning to reports of a naked man who’d scaled a 30-foot drawbridge in Ft. Lauderdale. So far no police reports have been released on the incident, which looked like this [above].

But given the location and the state of undress the fellow was found in, we’re going to say the odds are good that he was on flakka, the synthetic stimulant that has swept South Florida. Just last week, a naked, bloody 17-year-old girl screaming “I am Satan!” was arrested for charging at police officers. Police said her behavior was consistent with that of someone being high on flakka. One month ago, a naked man confirmed high on flakka raced through a busy intersection in Ft. Lauderdale before being arrested. And in February, a Florida man on flakka was arrested for brandishing a handgun while standing naked on his rooftop.

We recently told you how illicit Chinese ... [Read More]

I Once Tried to Purchse Cocaine From the Head of Manhattan Detectives
This is as good as it gets. A light rain is falling on a soft May evening and I’m walking north on a silent Park Avenue hoping to get into trouble. Fourteen thousand yellow taxis have turned Manhattan into a Bengali hellhole, blasting their horns non-stop, picking up or disgorging passengers in the middle of traffic-clogged streets, speeding and failing to yield to pedestrians as Big Bagel law requires. But on the Upper East Side, on a balmy evening, the yellow devils are causing havoc downtown, so I almost find myself singing in the rain as I head north far from the madding crowd.(Puns unintended.)

Nicola’s is an Italian restaurant that used to be very much in fashion back in the Seventies and Eighties. I hadn’t been there for many years, but Michael Mailer insisted we go down memory lane, so we did. Nicola was the headwaiter at Elaine’s, until he told the fat lady to shove it, got fired and opened up his own... [Read More]

Catholic Church's St. Teresa de Avila May Have Been the Drug War's True Inspiration
By the time Teresa Sanchez Cepeda Davila y Ahumada had turned 14, she had already known grievous sorrow. Her father, a Jewish convert to Christianity who lived in Gotarrendura, Avila (recently annexed as part of the newly unified kingdom of Spain), had disappeared early from Teresa’s life after the Spanish Inquisition questioned the sincerity of his conversion and condemned him. Then, when her mother fell ill and died, the girl went to the only place left to her: a nunnery.

Disgusted by the ostentatious wealth and church corruption she found there, the girl took solace in her daily communion with the only family she had left: her heavenly Father and Jesus his son. Through daily intensive meditative prayers, as Teresa later recalled in her autobiography, she was able to cultivate a state of mind which made it possible for the Holy Spirit to seize her, for her own ego to be swept away in stages and finally for...

NEW HAVEN — Federal authorities charged two former Wesleyan University students Friday with selling the synthetic party drug Molly, which resulted in the hospitalization of at least a dozen students on two occasions during the 2014-15 school year.

A federal grand jury indicted Eric Lonergan, 22, of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Zachary Kramer, 21, of Bethesda, Md., on charges connected with sales of the drug on campus, said U.S. Attorney Deirdre M. Daly.

Daly said Lonergan and Kramer had been providing ... [Read More]

Missouri "Pothead" Who Became the Poster Boy for Compassion on Drugs Speaks Out
Back in the day, Jeff Mizanskey was a bit of a pothead, at least that’s how the police in Sedalia, Mo., knew him. The third time Mr. Mizanskey got busted for weed – during a 1993 sting at a Super 8 motel – he lost his case at trial and received a mind-boggling punishment: Life in prison, with no chance of getting out.

In a major sign that US governors have joined the larger public in questioning the wisdom of draconian drug laws, Gov. Jay Nixon on Friday commuted Mr. Mizanskey’s sentence, allowing him a parole hearing to plead his case for freedom. He has a good shot of... [Read More]

British Government Charged With Enslaving Under-Aged Cannabis Workers
Hien was 10 when he arrived in Britain. He did not know where he was or where he had been. He knew only that he was here to work. Since he emerged from the back of a lorry after crossing from Calais seven years ago, his experience has been one of exploitation and misery. He has been a domestic slave, been trafficked into cannabis factories, been abused and beaten and was eventually prosecuted and sent to prison. It has been a life of terror, isolation and pain.

Hien’s story is not unique. He is one of an estimated 3,000 Vietnamese children in forced labour in the UK, used for financial gain by criminal gangs running cannabis factories, nail bars, garment factories, brothels and private homes. Charged up to £25,000 for their passage to the... [Read More]
