Yea...shit! this is what I was warned about from the MEC so there has been a person make some formal action for them to respond to. I was informed last year that they were aware of the situation with ibogaine but were turning a blind eye to it; they would only investigate if there was a complaint or formal request; they know they have more to deal with than ibogaine clinics which keep to a standard of practice. 
This brings me to the possibility that the current working clinics accept Howard guide to patient screening;treatment and after care as a standard of practice so we can start off on the right foot with safety protocol.

I will give you a call kevin. I know I have mentioned this but maybe it is some thing to also exclude people who do not comply with that standard of practice. There is going to have to be some control on ibogaine administration and I would rather be part of or suggest the way to go than conform to government regulations that know nothing of ibogaine.

All the best

Subject: [Ibogaine] IBOGAINE DOOM & GLOOM!

Doom and gloom may hit the ibogaine fraternity in South 
Africa. There are a number of Ibogaine providers and clinic's in South Africa 
now, and it seems as if the government authorities,  the "Social 
Development" sector, have either being doing their home work, or have been 
tipped off by some scrupulous and jealous individual to now investigate the said 
operations, where drug treatment and wellness  are offered to the local and 
international markets. 
They currently claim that each and every 
facility offering treatment, associated to drug addiction and 
wellness, all need to conform to the Prevention and Treatment of Drug 
Dependency Act, No 20 of 1992,and that registration is required irrespective of 
the number of patients treated and or taken in by the provider or caregiver. 
Ibogaine SA and Ibogaine African Renaissance were the first to be investigated, 
with the others to follow shortly. This comes as a huge surprise to all the 
non-registered clinics, as the registered clinics in South Africa currently 
offer a dismal success rate of only 2% (if you could call it success) 
where the Ibogaine facilities are offering between 75 to 80% on drugs 
like Heroin and Cocaine
While registration maybe necessary, to 
protect the interest of the patient / patients and to conform to the 
government standards this will come at a huge cost to these facilities, as the 
premises need to be configured to meet with the guidelines issued by the 
respective authorities. Further to this there maybe a ripple effect into other 
government sectors as well, i.e. the MCC  (medicine control council) with 
regard to the use of Ibogaine in South Africa all together. 
With the above in mind, Ibogaine SA 
and Ibogaine African Renaissance have therefore, decided to conform to the 
prescribed, and hope to achieve registration status shortly. The management of 
the aforementioned, also view the registration as being possibly an advantage to 
the facility and patients a like, as medical aid patients will have the 
opportunity of now using their scheme and not have to fork out the costs 
So lets all hold thumbs for the continued use and 
development of Ibogaine in South Africa. 
Lets fight addiction together !!!
