“It’s not that they don’t want you taking drugs, it’s that they want you taking their drugs.”
– Dennis McKenna
The War on Drugs is a very murky subject indeed, particularly over the last few decades.
Described by Rolling Stone as “the point man” for drug policy reform efforts, Ethan Nadelmann is widely regarded as the outstanding proponent of drug policy reform both in the United States and abroad. Allow him to explain.
Let there be no doubt about it – The International Drugs market, both legal and illegal is all about MONEY & CONTROL.
The business model of Big Pharma is about selling more and more Drugs, their responsibility to their shareholders demands it, so what they want and need is increasing numbers of sick people dependent on their products.
Now lets be clear here, my eldest daughter, now in her twenties, is Type 1 diabetic and has been since she was three years old, without the use of insulin provided by a pharmaceutical company she would probably be dead.
On the other hand, although I cant prove it retrospectively, I hold a strong suspicion that she contracted diabetes as a result of a vaccination she had shortly before being diagnosed as diabetic! It’s a very complicated story.
Drugs can be broadly broken down into two broad categories, Legal i.e. Pharmaceuticals and the Illegal varieties. It is my contention that here in the West we have got the balance very badly wrong, particularly when it comes to some of the naturally occurring substances that can be found or cultivated in the Natural World.
During the course of my work and investigations a clear pattern emerges, the over prescriptions of pharmaceuticals, particularly in the form of anti-depressants, and the under-utilisation of substances that have been with Humanity for thousands of years.
