Mental Ill Health, Dementia, Violence and Criminality

A couple of days ago I received a letter from the mother of a post-adolescent daughter, expressing a common concern that millions of parents share. She wrote, in part,

“It seems to me that my daughter and her classmates have more depression and mood disorders than in my day (the 60s and 70s). I know at least one other parent who wonders if there’s a cause – the water, vaccines, all of the above.

“Thanks to you though I think it could be psychiatric drugs, which kids will filch from their parents’ medicine cabinets to take and share. Then they are stuck with the withdrawal syndrome.

“Looking for more of the picture. Peg”

Here was my response, which, for the purposes of this column, I have expanded upon: More

Quote of the Day: “Even if you don’t like drugs, you really, really don’t like murder, rape, robbery, and so forth.” – Ted Balaker

An important video by Reason.tv and Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) succinctly addresses how the War on Drugs cripples police work and endangers children. DownsizeDC.org would like to express our gratitude to Reason’s Ted Balaker and LEAP’s Neill Franklin for laying out the facts.

We urge you to . . .

* Watch the video
* And then tell Congress to watch it too, using our End the Mexican Civil War campaign

The Mexican government reports that its War on Drugs has killed 28,000 people over the past four years. This ongoing tragedy is undermining Mexico’s stability, which is bad news for the United States.

But that’s not the only way drug prohibition is hurting us. I urge you to watch this interview with Neill Franklin, the Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (under 9 minutes)

News item after news item underscores the futility of the War on Drugs. Yet Congress and the President want to continue the same failed policies, no matter how many innocent people are caught in the crossfire.

Please send a letter telling Congress to end the failed, unconstitutional War on Drugs.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

In November, the American Medical Association urged Congress to reclassify marijuana as a “drug with possible medicinal benefit.”

I believe you should go further than that, and re-think the entire War on Drugs . . . More

Marijuana – Reefer Madness or Cure-all?

Farm Wars

December 20, 2009

Controversy surrounding the use of marijuana, whether it is for recreational or medical purposes, is heating up.

The first state to legalize marijuana for medical purposes, California leads the country in decriminalizing the sale and use of cannabis. Other states are considering the issue… Now, a new initiative that will allow local governments to oversee and regulate cultivation, distribution, and sales – and to determine how and how much cannabis can be bought and sold within area limits – will be on the November 2010 ballot. National advocates say that regardless of the vote – signature gathering went fast and easy, according to reports – a major corner has been turned in national acceptance of marijuana use. (CSMonitor)

The real question is, why should a harmless plant that anyone can grow at home elicit such controversy. Why does the government care? Why criminalize it in the first place, and then keep it under control by regulating it after determining that people are going to use it anyway? The answer might lie here: READ MORE…

Excerpt from “American Drug War” …BRASSCHECK TV/video

Before the “War on Terror” the Bush

family declared another war.

Bush Sr. got the ball rolling on that one.

Bush Sr. was Ronald Reagan’s “Dick Cheney.”

He was the real president while the senile, but highly charismatic actor and lifelong associate of gangsters Ronald Reagan occupied the White House.

It was called “The War on Drugs.”

And just like the “War on Terror,” it was (and still is) a multi-billion dollar enterprise fighting shadows.

Guess who brought cocaine into the US by the planeload during the 1980s?

Excerpt from “American Drug War”

George Bush Sr. has been involved in this since Day One and was the driving force behind Iran-Contra.

Gary Webb, who broke this story, was demoted by his newspaper, the San Jose Mercury, and driven out of journalism by his “colleagues.”

The Washington Post, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the San Francisco Examiner all ran multi-page stories personally discrediting him.

Webb later committed suicide by shooting himself in the head – twice.
