Some scary developments, which might or actually will make iboga and 
ibogaine globally illegal (along with many other plant products).
The next I copied:

It is also very important to be informed about the Codex Alimentarius 
<http://www.maya-ethnobotanicals.com/article_view.phtml?art_title=Codex%20Alimentarius>. 
The Codex Alimentarius Commission was created in 1963 to develop food 
standards and guidelines under the Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards 
Programme. The main purposes of this Programme are protecting health of 
the consumers and ensuring fair trade practices in the food trade, and 
promoting coordination of all food standards work undertaken by 
international governmental and non-governmental organizations. In the 
early 1990s, Codex began to look at establishing internationally 
harmonized standards for food supplements. But it appears that the 
strongest effect of this Directive will be to cut off availability of 
all vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and most other essential nutrients by 
re-classifying them as pharmaceutical drugs, eventually available by 
prescription only and manufactured by pharmaceutical companies from 
synthetic materials, including genetically engineered substances. People 
who consider Codex Alimentarius as benevolent consumer protection or as 
harmless to their health freedom are seriously mistaken. It has nothing 
to do with consumer protection. It has everything to do with the 
economic ambitions of multi-national corporations, in particular the 
pharmaceutical industry.

"If Codex Alimentarius has its way, then herbs, vitamins, minerals, 
homeopathic remedies, amino acids and other natural remedies you have 
taken for granted most of your life will be gone. The name of the game 
for Codex Alimentarius is to shift all remedies into the prescription 
category so they can be controlled exclusively by the medical monopoly 
of the major pharmaceutical firms." -John Hammell, founder of 
International Advocates for Health Freedom 
<http://www.maya-ethnobotanicals.com/article_view.phtml?art_title=International%20Advocates%20for%20Health%20Freedom>. 


The Codex is targeted to go into full global effect by January 1st 2010.


I always thought Alex Jones is goes a bit too far, but this stuff  makes 
me think.
