January 25th, 2014 · No Comments

 

In the United States, it is quite common to hear about the war on drugs and what the government is trying to do to stop the inflow of drugs. Every government agency from the federal government all the way down to the city government is doing their part to stop the flow of drugs. Border patrols are doing what they can at the borders, while the DEA and local police departments are setting up specialized narcotic units to help get a grip on this growing problem.

Regulating Recreational Drugs

October 12th, 2013 · No Comments

smoking marijuanaFor the first time in history, a country – New Zealand – has created a regulatory agency to oversee recreational drugs. Passed by their government this past summer on a vote of 119 to 1, the legislation has already granted interim approval to over 50 products.

We should watch this development closely to see what happens. If implemented carefully, New Zealand’s new laws offer the first genuinely scientific and public health-oriented approach to dealing with the negative aspects of drugs.

All new drugs will still be illegal for people under 18. They can only be sold at specific, licensed outlets and must carry packaging identifying the ingredients and including health warnings about the known and potential risks. No advertising is permitted, except inside the store itself.

Regulation won’t make recreational drug use completely safe — this is clear from our experience with alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs. But, it also won’t add to the harm done by drug dealers and throwing people in prison. There will always be some people that seek chemical euphoria and escape from reality — so instead of locking them up and ceding the market to organized crime, we need to give them the safest possible choices and spend the money on treatment and education instead.

Molly is a Dangerous Drug

September 29th, 2013 · No Comments

molly drug powder Molly is the street name for a drug that is pushed as the pure powder form of a banned substance known as MDMA, the main chemical in ecstasy. In the last five years, Molly has made its way into popular culture, helped by references to it made by various entertainers.

If you’re in your twenties and frequent music events such as raves — you have more than likely encountered the drug. While ecstasy was popular in underground nightclub raves in the nineties, molly has become the drug of choice for millennials. Every generation is characterized by one drug or another: the sixties and seventies with pot and hallucinogenics, the eighties with cocaine, and so on.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) considers MDMA to be a Schedule I controlled substance, which means it has a high potential for abuse, and no accepted use in medical treatment. The DEA notes that MDMA can cause confusion, anxiety, depression, paranoia, sleep problems, and drug craving.

Medical Marijuana Benefits and Legal Issues

September 11th, 2013 · No Comments

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent, recently completed a documentary titled “Weed”, which discusses the value of medical marijuana. He stated that the public has been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years because marijuana was listed as a Schedule 1 substance and one of the most dangerous drugs that has “no accepted medicinal use and a high potential for abuse.” But in reality the Drug Enforcement Agency does not have the science to back it up.

Dr Gupta did express a concern that young people who are still developing their brains are likely more susceptible to harm from marijuana than adult brains. Some recent studies suggest that regular use in teenage years leads to a permanent decrease in IQ. Other research hints at a possible heightened risk of developing psychosis. He urged the youth to wait until their mid 20s after the brains are developed to try it.
