Quote:We all know that drugs are causing an untold cost to society and to personal lives, in ruined lives, family breakdowns, escalating crime, bursting prisons and human misery - the opposite of what we should be growing towards.
However, what most of us haven't been told is that there exists a drug which has successfully helped people to give up many kinds of addictions, including heroin and Cocaine, WITHIN 48 HOURS and WITHOUT WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS.
Quote:Not only does Ibogaine help a person, who wants to give up drugs, to do so without withdrawal symptoms, but it seems to act by giving the person an intensive 30 or so hours of 'therapy'. The person gets to identify and remove the emotional reasons why they took to drugs in the first place. With the reason for taking drugs gone, the desire to take drugs again also goes. Some people who have taken Ibogaine reported an increased feeling of responsibility for their life. One can't make generalizations about the drug, however, as different people have different experiences. And it doesn't work for everyone.
Quote:.In the early 1990s, Lotsof teamed with Dr. Deborah Mash, a neurologist and pharmacologist at the University of Miami, to study the effect of ibogaine on people. Mash was granted FDA approval to administer ibogaine in 1993 and was able to test the drug on eight people before the experiment came to an abrupt halt.
"I was unable to get it funded," Mash says. "We had the rocket ship on the launch pad, with no fuel."
A few months after the FDA gave Mash the green light, a committee of academics and pharmaceutical-industry professionals assembled by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) concluded that the U.S. government should not fund ibogaine research.
What? No more Methadone sales or rehab centers? This can not be allowed. Besides, what will happen to black ops if there were no more opiate addicts?
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
