Thanks Dana.

You give as pussy drug users that don't want to come out in the open  
and talk about this a voice..

We're mainly afraid the we will be shamed at by the idiots in the  
"medical feild"
And the "be a target for the police"
None of which I or many want to be..

Follow what's in your heart Dana!!

However, not that I'm worried about it getting to much media covage.

I be lying if I said I wasn't worried about poeple in the un ground..

The bad thing is it puts the under ground people in the spot light.
And in the US, that make poeple like me(talking about my past drug  
use, nothing I do now!!!!!) a "target" for the idiots that don't "get  
it" namely the idiot police!!

But you have to follow thos path, keep making noise!!!

To many people understandibly do not want to be on the DEAs "radar"

But my hat goes out to the poeple like Dana that will not take this  
stupid ass drug war, stupid ass shit, sitting down..

The "medical field" could use a blow job!!!
And wake the fuck up!!!!

I thank you are on target!!

The medical feild needs to get Its head out of it's ass!!!

Stay on target!!

The medical feild needs it more then the police!!!!

I know, I been through those idiots!!!

It's all mindless BS!!

And I feel for anybody who is forced to go through that dumb ass BS!!

> A pro-cannabis group is pushing for the introduction of a

> American drug law reform campaigner Dana Beal will today address a  
> public forum at the University of Otago on the use of ibogaine, a  
> drug which sends people into a dream-like trance for several hours.
> Supporters say it reduces craving and leads drug users to confront  
> their drug-taking behaviour after one or two doses, with the help of  
> psychotherapy. Ibogaine has previously been used with heroin addicts  
> and is now being promoted as a weapon against pure methamphetamine.
> However the drug is banned in some countries, including the United  
> States and Europe, because of its hallucinogenic properties.
> Dr Fraser Todd, a senior lecturer at the National Addiction Centre  
> at Christchurch Medical School, said the main problem with ibogaine  
> was a lack of clinical trials to prove its safety and effectiveness.
> It worked in a similar way to ketamine, a drug which had been tested  
> overseas and could be trialled soon in New Zealand.
> "If that drug [ibogaine] doesn't have long-lasting side effects from  
> a one-off use and does fix addiction, that's potentially a major  
> addition to our armoury."
> But drug education campaigner Mike Sabin said the drug could be  
> especially dangerous for the many methamphetamine users who took  
> other medication for mental illnesses.
> "There's a lot of things to be ticked off before you could say this  
> could be safely administered."
> Mr Beal, 62, a longtime marijuana legalisation supporter, has been  
> brought to New Zealand by the National Organisation for the Reform  
> of Marijuana Laws New Zealand.
> President Phil Saxby said ibogaine had some side effects on users  
> but so did medicinal marijuana and aspirin.
> "If you banned everything because it had side effects you'd never do  
> anything."
> Auckland psychotherapist Dr Tony Coates, who would like to use the  
> drug as an addiction treatment, said he had tried it himself and  
> found it was "everything it was cracked up to be" in personal  
> accounts on the internet.
> He said most ibogaine users remained fully awake but went into a  
> dreamlike trance for five or six hours.
> Addicts confronted vivid memories of the experiences which led to  
> their drug taking and could discuss these afterwards with a  
> counsellor. Ibogaine also removed craving for other drugs.
> Dr Coates said ibogaine appeared to have no legal status in New  
> Zealand but Medsafe had told him it would have to be registered as a  
> medicine before he could give it to patients. There had been no  
> large-scale clinical trials of the drug and he had found it  
> difficult to interest anyone in starting one.
