Canada Just Legalized Heroin to Control Drug Addiction

In an effort to treat Canadians enslaved by a junk habit, the Liberal government has taken action against an old law by imposing a new set of regulations that will allow medical professionals to provide addicts with daily doses of pharmaceutical-grade heroin.Earlier last week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s administration made a move to revamp some of the extreme anti-drug policies that were put on the books by the Conservative government during its rule. Specifically, the change involves a tweak in the language of Health Canada’s Special Access Program, giving physicians the freedom to treat severe cases of heroin addiction with a prescription form of the drug known as diacetylmorphine.

Why hardly anyone dies from a drug overdose in Portugal

Doses of methadone are prepared for distribution to patients at the Taipas rehabilitation clinic in Lisbon, Portugual. Lisbon’s Taipas rehabilitation clinic is one of over 40 such clinics across the country, the result of Portugal’s 15-year-old pioneering drugs policy which decriminalised drug use while offering free treatment and state-funded street-work programmes.

OPINION: Portugal decriminalised the use of all drugs in 2001. Weed, cocaine, heroin, you name it — Portugal decided to treat possession and use of small quantities of these drugs as a public health issue, not a criminal one. The drugs were still illegal, of course. But now getting caught with them meant a small fine and maybe a referral to a treatment program — not jail time and a criminal record.

Smoking marijuana is 114 times safer than drinking alcohol – study

RT
24 February 2015

As the debate over marijuana legalization continues in the United States, a new study suggests that smoking the controversial plant is about 114 times safer than drinking alcohol.

In fact, alcohol was found to be the deadliest drug on an individual level, at least when it comes to the likelihood of a person dying due to consuming a lethal dose. Heroin and cocaine were the next most deadly substances, followed by tobacco, ecstasy, and meth. Trailing up the rear was marijuana.

According to the team of international researchers behind the study, published in the journal ‘Scientific Reports,’ the findings suggest that marijuana risks – at least those related to mortality – are trumped when compared to substances like alcohol.

“The results confirm that the risk of cannabis may have been overestimated in the past,” the report reads. “At least for the endpoint of mortality, the [margin of exposure] for THC/cannabis in both individual and population-based assessments would be above safety thresholds (e.g. 100 for data based on animal experiments). In contrast, the risk of alcohol may have been commonly underestimated.” Continue reading Smoking marijuana is 114 times safer than drinking alcohol – study

COFFEE SHOPS AND COMPROMISE: The Success of Dutch Drug Policy

Published on Jan 6, 2015

In 1976, the Netherlands separated the cannabis market from the market in other illicit drugs, and allowed coffee shops to sell small amounts of cannabis to adults in a controlled environment. Our new movie, supplementing the report of the Open Society Foundation, tells the story of the Dutch model and highlights its successes, as well as the challenges ahead of it.

My Conclusion

This is what New Zealand should do is legalize Cannabis and other drug like Heroin, Methamphetamine, Cocaine and More. That way the money will be remove from the organized crimes because it competitions and the price come down. When people have problem either with those drug can always seek help and treatment of the drug addiction rather having them being thrown in prison just using those drugs. Prohibition has been a failure in New Zealand for over forty years.

Prozac, the bestselling antidepressant taken by 40 million people worldwide, does not work and nor do similar drugs in the same class, according to a major review released today.

The study examined all available data on the drugs, including results from clinical trials that the manufacturers chose not to publish at the time. The trials compared the effect on patients taking the drugs with those given a placebo or sugar pill.

When all the data was pulled together, it appeared that patients had improved – but those on placebo improved just as much as those on the drugs. Continue reading Prozac, used by 40m people, does not work say scientists

Legalize Heroin

There, I said it: legalize heroin. For those in a state of shock, let me say it again: legalize heroin. And for those conservative Christians who want to use the power of the state to stamp out sin and vice, let me say it again: legalize heroin.

Diacetylmorphin (or morphine diacetate or diamorphine), better known as heroin (or smack), is an opioid used as both an analgesic drug (to kill pain) and a recreational drug (to get high). I mention these basic facts about heroin because most defenders of the war on drugs, although they are adamant that heroin should be illegal, can neither tell you what it is or how it differs from cocaine, LSD, and crystal meth.

Clear connection between SSRI drugs and suicide ignored once again by establishment media
A video in which Robin Williams appears to admit to being on Prozac suggests a potential link between SSRI drugs, which are known to increase the risk of suicide, and the tragedy of the actor’s death.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight filmed in April last year, Williams refers to a conversation he had with television producer David Kelly.

“He’s so mellow….talking to him is like taking a Prozac because you feel, you just feel good,” said Williams.

Synthetics ban won’t work if cannabis remains illegal

Press Release: NORML

Synthetics ban won’t work if cannabis remains illegal, says drug law reform group.

The Government’s intention to ban the remaining synthetic substitutes won’t work if cannabis remains illegal.

“The more risky synthetic substances are only demanded because consumers can’t legally use natural cannabis,” says Chris Fowlie, spokesperson for NORML (National Organisation for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, New Zealand Inc).

“The false demand for synthetic products will only be reduced when real, natural, cannabis is finally legalised in New Zealand like it already has been in Colorado, Washington, Uruguay and the Netherlands.

“We note the Government and opposition parties remain committed to the regulatory approach of the Psychoactive Substances Act, which will not be repealed. NORML’s position is that natural cannabis should be brought within this act or similarly regulated, because the best way to reduce the use of synthetics is to legalise the real thing.”
