Dr. Tom, I read your post the other day and didn't have time to give it the 
thought that it deserves, I have time now. First off, I'm not a provider but I 
know a few and I'd like to say something here. LOL I have to see that 4 inch 
group offhand at 50 yards. I might be able to get 4 inch groups with a Ruger Mk 
II but with 2 hands and a rest. 'Nuff' jokin', this is serious. This issue 
needs to be addressed. When I had my treatment everyone, and I mean everyone 
wanted to know about my aftercare and plans for the future to the point that it 
irratated me. Turns out that they were right about therapy by the way. Nobody 
that I know of will treat anyone just to make it easier to get high. This has 
probably been hashed out allready, I haven't had time to read everthing on the 
list for days now, but I have to say this. Have you ever met Preston? I have, 
and maybe I'm just too sensitive, but I swear I could see the pain in his face 
when he had to move around. Does he or anyone else with as many pain issues 
as he has not have the right to try and make his life easier to deal with? 
That's not a decision I would make carte blanch (where the hell is the spell 
checker on this thing?) about anyone. Besides if I had my way Ibogaine would be 
legal and this would be a mute point. If I was a provider I would have to take 
all things into consideration on an individual basis. To me, Ibogaine is about 
the choices it gives you and the best route out of addiction that I personaly 
know of. I've been addicted off and on since the 70's to oppiates. This is the 
first time I have felt good about being clean since I shot Morphine when I was 
15 years old. I didn't really see how it could work for me but I tried 
anyway. It worked. How do we know who it will work for and who it won't? There is a 
screening process and I'd have to say that to the man everyone treated here of 
late in the NYC area truly wanted to get clean. I hope Preston doesn't mind 
me saying this but I would imagine if he could have been clean AND free of pain 
he probably would have loved it. That didn't happen for him and I wish it 
had. Ibogaine is medicine and should be treated that way. Oppiates are medicine 
too, just look at all those 'scripts that get written for them. Dr.'s give out 
an addictive substance all day long and the government won't let people who 
want out of addiction have the single most effective way of dealing with that 
addiction legaly obtain Ibogaine. That almost seems evil to me. There should be 
Ibogaine information in every Dr.'s office and Methadone clinic in the US. I'm 
covering my end on that, how 'bout you? I've said it before and I'll say it 
again, I won't shut up until every addict that I know of at least knows that 
there is another way out. I pay close attention to everything you say and I'm 
glad that you brought this up. When I get back to the Catskills I'm gonna' work 
on my one handed shot.hehehehe        Randy
