In the middle of this brief by tragic foray into violence…

“In the middle of this brief by tragic foray into violence…really sad… is ONE small reference to the single biggest contributing factor to the violence…ALCOHOL. Even in this shocking context, the inability or unwillingness to the ‘call out’ booze for the damage it is doing to our young, is a best staggeringly ironic and at worst culpably negligent. Come on people, our young people need a better model and if the adult population are willing or sadly, able, to stand up to give that and keep excusing themselves from responsibility, then the emerging generation will continue in this tragic process.”

Hijacking Recovery: challenging the ‘user-centric’ redefinitions.

It has become increasingly difficult to find any ‘redemptive’ aspects to genuine health care and patient/client wellbeing when one looks at what has clearly become the ‘industry’ of addictionmaintenance for the purpose of – it would seem – anything but best practice health and wellbeing.Even the most ‘avid’ supporter of the ‘harm reductionist’ ideology has to raise their eyebrow at the self-protecting spin being engaged by practitioners seemingly much more interested in protecting an ideology that guarantees the funding flow for their vocational security, than seeing precious human individuals be given BEST options for health and restoration….Read More

Piñera opposes legalization of marijuana in Chile

The President of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, criticized a possible legalization of marijuana in his country, which was proposed by two senators opposing a bill introduced last Wednesday before Congress.

“In these times when some advocate or promote the legalization of drugs, I mean that the government of Chile has a strong commitment to combat drug use,” Pinera said in a ceremony in which launched a Bill Prevention of Drug and Alcohol.

Brazil: Drug dealers say no to crack in Rio

RIO DE JANEIRO—Business was brisk in the Mandela shantytown on a recent night. In the glow of a weak light bulb, customers pawed through packets of powdered cocaine and marijuana priced at $5, $10, $25. Teenage boys with semiautomatic weapons took in money and made change while flirting with girls in belly-baring tops lounging nearby.Next to them, a gaggle of kids jumped on a trampoline, oblivious to the guns and drug-running that are part of everyday life in this and hundreds of other slums, known as favelas, across this metropolitan area of 12 million peopleothe/f Chicus tlandbnt thom Ile sinnt eas brack i,he most dictionvand maderuedionvanug us the Matriadhat arfue ino < < d="articleBylod> >
