Dana,

I know people who've spontaneously cut down on smoking hash or grass after
an ibogaine session. I figure if the behaviour is addictive then ibogaine
will try and help someone look at it. Personally, I've also no doubt that
marijuana can be addictive.

  Hmmm... Well, I'm only stating the well-known fact that ibogaine doesn't
seem to affect marijuana like it does heroin, cocaine, speed, cigarettes,
etc. I'm not going to get didactic here about neuro-mechanism. The point is
that the nMDA antagonism of the cannabidiol cancels out the build-up of
tolerance to THC. Very important for MMJ patients. And this Morgenthau
staffer doesn''t get it. You should hear what they did t o this patient!

  O well.

    We had some one from the conference at Alex Grey's would bugged Patrick
to get her a dose of ibogaine to--get this!--treat her pot dependency.



    I just had to comment on this.  I gather from the tone that you consider
marijuana addiction to be a sort of non-existent ailment.  I know you didn’t
actually say that so I may be misreading you.  But I know people who have
gone to great lengths to stop smoking pot, even to the extent of
substituting harder drugs like heroin.  And I would say that there is no
question that such a thing as marijuana addiction exists.  If addiction is
defined by an inability to control your actions by exercising your own will,
than anyone who smokes pot and wants to stop but cannot is addicted.
