don't wanna get my head bit off by saying something in the middle of
all this, but there's a shitload of science about ibogaine. a lot more
then most 'herbal remedies' the only thing i've noticed is that there
are always these big claims, Glick is developing mc-18, Mash is
submitting her data to the FDA, wait lemme check youtube there it is,
'next month' that's a vid from 2005


so where is it? its 3 years later. where's mc-18, where's the
nor-ibogaine patch, where's the progress?

I don't think there's a lack of science, but there is a massive lack
of any kind of follow through from not any one person but looks like
every scientist involved with ibo.

dana, bro, don't stop the science, your detracters are just trying to
keep you down, smoking a blunt and listening to you talk science is
mad entertaining :-) ok mebbe nothing you say actually makes sense,
but nitpicking details is for small minds. the show must go on!

btw dana, where's the dirt-cheap synthetic ibogaine your labs were
going to produce last year? speaking of no followup whatev happened
with all that?

sofar as ken alper goes, the bro needs to reup or get some new meds,
he's one cranky motherfucker of late.
