I Can't make this shit up if I wanted to.
Thanks to Bayer's BRAINY Scientists a drug that was even more addicting than Morphine was made and patented by a Drug Company of course.They could not patent a naturally occurring substance so they change it enough to be synthetic form and then they have a patent.
Thanks BAYER for the Thousands of Junkies that the world must deal with daily.Morphine is not much better but much harder to be addicted to right away.
The Point is the Drugs were available and there was not a black market.
Cocaine was drug sold Over the counter for many years.
Cocaine was put in many products from elixirs to cough drops.
Cocaine was never a social issue the way it is today with very addictive forms of Cocaine and Amphetamines mixed.
The Black Markets Products are dirty and deadly.
Amphetamines soon replaced cocaine during WW-2.The Pep Pills were popular and saved lives during LONG MISSIONS.
The Armed Forces created a Bunch of speed addicts.They had no problem getting there goods.Most of them lived functional lives as long as they had their drug of choice.
Society will never realize how leaving the drug manufacturing up to the THUGS will create a Bad Product full of additives.
The Yellowish Rocks sold in the streets vary in what they have in them.
They have very Little Cocaine now.Around 20 percent if they are lucky.
The Street Crap is Much more addicting and less satisfying and leaves the FOOL wanting MORE.I call it the MORE drugs.
Just take one look at the street crap and it will creep you out if you know anything about street drugs and the history.
The Crackheads are prisoners of some devilish cartels and gangs that know how to work them.They allow then to have some for free sometimes just to HOOK them again.
There are forms of stimulants available with a script STILL.I would rather have someone tweaking on Tablets instead of Rock.Especially if the Tablets were administered by a Harm Reduction Program.
The Time has come to look at addiction in a different light.
Way Too much money is wasted Prosecuting and Jailing Drug Dealers and Parolees who are violated over drugs.Druggies with non violent history and a general mellow attitude need to be allowed to have scripts if that is what they are going to use anyway.
Face it America The Drug war is lost.
Trying to keep drugs from addicts has just created chaos in Urban settings.The Inner Urban war zones that the Users from the BEDROOM COMMUNITIES come to so they can PURCHASE DRUGS.
Hell the Sixth street corridor from hell has BART nearby.That is why the hub is so successful.
Location Location Location.
Time to TAKE the Cannabis sales from this LOCATION and provide a funding source for harm reduction.The Time for a Reality Check is NOW!
Then have doctors available to divert sales of drugs from the streets.
Amphetamine tablets were 75 cents for 1000 in 1962 when the FEDS raided the San Francisco Pharmacies that were selling amphetamine tablets.They were different than the Picture.They were White Beanies as we called them when I was young.
Bennie,Speed whatever they are called were not a Huge issue really.There were many functioning addicts then.Many were Veterans who ended up addicted during WW-2 and the Korean War.They handed out Beanies like Buttons.
Then America created a Black Market and the Price of Beanies that were Clandestinely Manufactured were much more expensive.They were also full of Additives and there is no way to have quality control.
Would you rather see the sales of Drugs continue on the streets when there are drugs available over the counter that can help ease the addiction monkey.
The Drug War is totally Lost.
The Drugs are available one way or another.Society can Wise up and accept the addictions or continue to fight a losing battle.
Have I made My Point Yet?
The Time for harm Reduction has come San Francisco.
