There's a prescription only drug called Modafinil.
September 22, at The crowning feature of your work is its provision of a solution.
Your book has had a powerful impact on me because it put the pieces of a puzzle together and added so much more. I would like to say your book convinced me, and it has, but there were other factors witnessed over the past years that had led me to your conclusions long ago.
Demonization of the evils of drug use that should result in masses of slathering drug destroyed people laying in the streets, followed by statements to the effect that many drug users lead normal lives and are undetectable. Police photos showing police wearing thousands of dollars worth of military gear with only the eye balls uncovered, carrying weapons capable of leveling a city block,looking like they expected a nuclear blast, and standing next to their captives, who look like drugs are the least of their problems, and probably provide the only source of satisfaction life provides.
Then have to listen to the police public relations division, describe the courage and bravery of these self sacrificing officers who brave death every medical writing a prescription for clarity paperback exchange. Or be called by a professional phone soliciting services asking for donations to the police fund so the police will have more benefits.
Or watching the whole State go into a military hero style funeral for a police officer who has died in the line of duty chasing dangerous marijuana sellers, and reading the same day the names only of a dozen construction workers who fell off a roof or stepped into a machine.
Then seeing several pages of microprint listings of confiscated goods from drug convictions, and noticing that almost none of the houses look worth more than 85k, and the cars at least 10 years old.
Then wondering who are the real victims of our laws. Or noticing with shock that the local police are now able to keep the money generated by these drug convictions for use in their annual buget.
Or the newspaper article featuring a local lawyer who is a State Legislator, make a powerful argument for the expansion of drug fighting efforts and then to look up his ad in the yellow pages and note he features drug crimes as a major area of expertise in his practice.
Or hear the President of the United States make statements about taking action to review the appropriateness of the drug laws, then note the absence of any followup, and the emphasis on job creation and learning that the drug fighting efforts in the U.
Or the TV shows that feature a police raid on a highschool, resulting in students being wrestled to the floor and handcuffed, roughly hassled and hearded off to the jail, all a planned demonstration of what will happen to them if they get involved with drugs.
Or the shows that seem to get a perverse pleasure out of depicting poor, helpless, defenceless, people litterally attacked by a squadron of military equipped police, bashing down doors of very modest homes in the middle of the night rousting a sleeping couple and two small children, handcuffing the parents roughly on the floor, and bashing the walls of the house in search of drugs.
As though, seeing massive brute force crushing little people was entertainment.
Or being called up for jury duty and presented with a legislative mandated drug case which denies the accused trial by jury, and listen to half of the potential jurrors make elequent statements of opposition to the laws and the social policy they represent, and refuse to serve, myself included. Or reading day after day the details of white collar criminals stealing millions from ordinary citizens then being given three years, and a fine, while on the same day some poor kid who never had a chance get fifteen years for possessing and distrubuting a particular controlled substance previously declared extra dangerous by the State Legislatue.
The list goes on and on.
These events that have dominated the news for years should convince anyone, whether they have read your book or not, that something is very wrong with our system of justice. A massive extortion system supported by government seem a more appropriate description.
But these things have been very well documented in your work and despite their convincing rational factually supported case their remains the sad fact that no one really seems to care. Indeed, after reading your book and taking much time to convince my wife of its merrits, hoping to convert her, an astonishing and, in my mind, the most significant critique of you work was offered by her.
My wife is not an uncarring person so this kind of statement from her was inexplicable. I said nothing, pausing for a long while, then feeling forced to accept the fact that she had uttered the most significant statement of all.
So, will it ever change. A thousand children of legislators and other power people in a line with a marijuana joint demanding arrest by federal police…and filmed by all news channels.
