WAR ON DRUGS

DEA Agent Speaks Out: We Were Told Not to Enforce Drug Laws In Rich Communities

As the lies that keep the drug war alive begin to come unglued, many of the police officers and government agents who made it possible are now going public with the truth of their experience.

Matthew Fogg, a former US Marshal, and DEA agent is one of those people. Ever since leaving law enforcement he has been speaking out against police brutality, profiling, and the drug war.

Fogg appeared in an interview for Brave New Films, where he discussed the drug war and how race and class play a part the enforcement of drug laws.

Chronically Ill 6-Year-Old Walks for First Time After Medical Cannabis Treatment

The medicinal benefits of cannabis used to inspire heated debate—used to. With ongoing discoveries and successful treatments, denying the efficacy of cannabis treatment is no longer a matter of opinion, but rather, a complete fallacy. Around 100 years of propaganda, fear-mongering, and criminalization has attempted to not only discredit the plant’s medicinal value, but to portray the virtually harmless flower as dangerous, as well.

Thankfully, those days of irrational fear and denial are slowly coming to an end. In fact, the steady shift in the general public’s perspective on cannabis has been significant enough for a growing number of parents to consider cannabis oil as a viable option to treat their sick children. Such is the case with Bella Chinonis.

Study: Painkiller Overdose Deaths Decrease Dramatically In Cannabis Friendly States

According to a report this year from the esteemed Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), fatal overdoses caused by prescription painkillers dropped dramatically in states where cannabis is legal for medical and recreational use.

Access to medical cannabis, according to the study, is responsible for an overall 25% drop in fatalities associated with prescription drugs taken for chronic pain. The study also expects such fatalities to continue to drop as cannabis reform across the country allows more people to legally access the drug for medical purposes.

Police force gives cannabis users green light to grow drugs

Cannabis users in County Durham who grow the drug for their own consumption will no longer be targeted by the police after the force declared the illegal activity was not a priority.

In a move, which will be seen as a further step towards decriminalisation, Durham Constabulary declared it would only go after people using the drug if there was a complaint or if they were being “blatant”.

The People on Drugs are Winning the "War On Drugs"

How’s the global “war on drugs” progressing, you ask?

Not so good, according to the UN Office of Drugs and Crime’s most recent World Drugs report, which tracks overall trends as well as more granular data on the trafficking and use of specific illicit substances.

Specifically, one out of every 20 people the world over used illegal drugs in 2013, for a total of 246 million but, as the UN cheerfully notes, “because of the increase in the global population, illicit drug use has in fact remained stable.”
