Well, would you look at that?!

DISCLOSURE:

This post is in no way, shape, or form PROMOTING or CONDONING the use of illegal drugs for any reason!!! This is for research and entertainment purposes only!!!

 

 I came across this post today on Oddee.com (yes, it’s a guilty pleasure of mine to get me through the work day ;) ) and thought it was interesting enough to share with you all. It’s interesting all of the governmental facts that are related to all of these drugs. If you didn’t wonder if the government was behind all of the mass drug sales in the past, maybe this will peak your interest.

LSD: Cures Addiction, Treats Depression and Stops Cluster Headaches

Many people know in the fifties and sixties, the government experimented with LSD to test its properties as an agent of war, but few people know that the psychiatric community also took interest. Studies in the fifties showed that using LSD to treat alcoholism resulted in a 50% success rate -shocking compared to the 10% success rate from Alcoholics Anonymous. Scientists in Baltimore have recently taken up this research again to see how effective the drug is in treating alcohol, sedative, opium and heroin addiction.
In the Spring Grove State Hospital in Maryland, researchers provided terminal cancer patients with LSD to see if it could help reduce their anxieties about death. One third of the patients said they felt dramatically less tense, less depressed, less afraid of death and in less pain. Another third reported these conditions reduced moderately and the last group said their condition did not improve at all, but also did not worsen.
LSD was also used for psychotherapy during the sixties. A study of doctors in the UK who treated their patients with the drug showed the majority of them believed the substance was effective and safe in treating patients.
The drug has also proven to be an effective pain reliever for chronic pain. Even at rates below psychedelic dosages, LSD was found to be at least as effective as opiates and much longer lasting.
More recently, Harvard Medical School interviewed cluster headache patients who used LSD to treat their condition and seven out of eight said it relieved the headaches and helped put them in remission. Furthering this research, a study at McLean Hospital found that 53 cluster headache sufferers who took either LSD or magic mushrooms reported beneficial effects and that the quantity of the drug can be far below the psychedelic dosage in order to be effective.

Psychedelic Mushrooms: Treat Cluster Headaches and OCD

The psyclobin found in magic mushrooms has many similar effects as LSD, particularly when it comes to the treatment of cluster headaches. Just like acid, an amount too small to provide psychedelic effects can still relieve the pain and reduce the frequency of the headaches.
The drug is also promising in treating OCD. A University of Arizona study showed that those with the condition went through temporary remission and in one patient, the remission lasted for a full six months. While the researchers admit the study is not proof that the drug can serve as a treatment, they say it is promising enough to warrant further study. (Link 1 | Link 2 | Photo)

Ecstasy: Reduces Anxiety, Eases Parkinson’s Symptoms and Treats PTSD

The MDMA chemical compound that makes ecstasy so blissful to partygoers may also be useful in treating anxiety disorders. While formal studies have not yet been conducted, psychologists from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology argue that when combined with immersion therapy, the drug’s ability to release oxytoxin levels could make MDMA an ideal drug to use with a complete treatment program. They sum up their theory by saying, “MDMA has a combination of pharmacological effects that, in a therapeutic setting, could provide a balance of activating emotions while feeling safe and in control.”
The drug may also be able to treat Parkinson’s disease through the release of serotonin levels. While researchers still do not understand how the treatment works, it has proven effective in studies using mice and one Parkinson’s sufferer, ex-stuntman Tim Lawrence, who has shown notable improvement in his condition. He is able to go from barely being able to move to being able to perform somersaults and cartwheels shortly after taking one dose of the drug.
Victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are also showing a positive response to treatments involving ecstasy. Psychologists who performed a study using therapy and MDMA found the drug gave them a window of time where the patient experienced fewer fear responses and could adequately handle the therapy that is critical to work through their condition.

Cocaine And The Coca Plant: A Topical Anesthetic, Laxitive, and Motion Sickness Medicine

Long before rock stars started doing lines off of super model’s breasts, cocaine was once widely hailed as a wonder drug that could be used to cure everything from headaches to alcoholism to hay fevers. While modern medicine has discovered much safer treatments for most of these conditions, the drug is still occasionally used as a topical anesthetic for eye, nose and throat surgeries. It has recently also been used as a topical treatment applied to upper palate of those who suffer from severe cluster headaches.
Although scientists have largely accepted that the use of cocaine in the medical field is outweighed by the risks, the same is not true of the coca plant, where cocaine is derived from. Unlike cocaine, the plant contains multiple alkaloids (cocaine is made of only one) and is prone to less abuse because it must be consumed orally.
Research on the medical uses of coca leaves has been rather limited, but Andean cultures have used the leaves for medicinal purposes for centuries. One American physician, Andrew Wiel, believes these cultures may be on to something and suggests that coca leaves may be able to treat motion sickness, laryngitis, constipation and obesity.

Heroin: One Of The World’s Greatest Pain Relievers

Like cocaine, heroin’s effects were once touted to be a miracle cure-all. Although the drug’s dangers are well-known, particularly its tendency for abuse, the drug is still one of the most effective and safest treatments for extreme chronic pain, like the suffering experienced by cancer patients. Medical literature has shown that it is much safer than other drugs given in its place, including the synthetic opiate oxycodone. Unfortunately, the federal government’s complete ban on the drug prevents hospitals and other medical facilities from using the substance, even when it seems to be the only effective and safe pain management option.

Ketamine: The Magic Treatment For Depression

This animal tranquilizer, commonly referred to by the street name “special K,” has proven to be quite adept at treating clinical depression, even in persons who have not responded to other treatments. A Study by the Connecticut Mental Health Center found that 70% of their test group, none of whom had any luck with traditional depression treatments, responded positively to Ketamine treatment. Even more interesting was the fact that the drug was able to repair neuron connections in the brain that had previously been damaged by chronic stress. Ronald Duman, the senior author of the study, noted Ketamine “is like a magic drug — one dose can work rapidly and last for seven to 10 days.” (Link 1 | Link 2 | Photo)

Amphetamines: Treat Narcolepsy, ADHD and Aid In Stroke Recovery

Amphetamines are currently used by the medical community to treat a handful of conditions, including narcolepsy and ADHD. The State University of New York reports that in some cases, they have also proven to be effective in treating depression and obesity.
One of the most surprising uses for amphetamines is the use of the drug to help stroke victims experience an expedited recovery. A study by the Karolinska Institute of Sweden has shown that the treatment may be very helpful for those who have been debilitated by a recent stroke. 

Can’t argue with facts, but, hey, THAT’S JUST MY OPINION.

Watching what you say is harder than ever!!!!

I came across this video this afternoon, and had to post it. I’ve heard this before and thought I would share it with you all because knowledge is power, and there is power in numbers. So, the more that have the knowledge, the more powerful we will be in this fight.

I absolutely love how she breaks this down. I don’t even have to say anything else.

But, hey, THAT’S JUST MY OPINION.

This Ish is REAL, folks!!!!!

I came across this video today on infowars.com. A lot of it is stuff you already should know, but I know we have a few ‘sleepers’ come across my blog, and I wanted to make sure they know what’s really REAL! Plus, no matter how much we think we know, we can always use a refresher!!!

:mrgreen: Happy Hunting :mrgreen:

I’m rolling with DMX on this one.

But, hey, THAT’S JUST MY OPINION.

If I Was President…of Haiti?

First off, big ups to my big Blog-Sis, TheDirt, and her irritation with Wyclef Jean and his ridiculous campaign to become the Haitian president. Hilarious, I know, but for some reason it’s the truth. Please check out this article created by TheDirt in regards to Wyclef’s dreams of grandeur as the Haitian president.

Well, unbeknowst to me, I would suddenly be flooded with interesting tidbits of this obsession Wyclef has about this idea. I came across the following video while watching Season 2 of the Chappelle Show. It’s interesting Dave Chappelle has been shouting from the rooftops about how there is something going on in Showbiz, and even then, Wyclef was showing his true intentions and colors.

 

But, hey, THAT’S JUST MY OPINION.

Jay-Z Decoded

Jay-Z Decoded coming to a Barnes & Noble near you 11/19/2010 (gag!)
This fool’s arrogance never ceases to amaze me.

Sean Carter pre-Jay-Z

Instead of just coming clean and saying what’s really going on, he had decided to write (oh have one of his minions write it for him) an entire book disecting the lyrics to his raps. Gee, guess he figured we needed some help NOT finding Illuminati references in dang near every song!
But, you never know, maybe he will explain his role in Obamanation’s agenda…

Rock the Vote '08

…possibly just something to appeal to everyone across the masses no matter what race…

 

…or maybe he’s just around to pimp out his wife make sure his wife is available to make White House calls when needed…

Beyonce singing ‘At Last’ (coincedence, nah) at the Inagural Ball

 

…whatever his role is, I’m sure he thinks it will pay off eventually…

Jayonce's visit to the White House '09 (guess they let just everyone in now, huh)

…as long as they can keep EVERYTHING INCRIMINATING under wraps…

 

 

Ooops, guess the Brotherhood missed this one!!!
Guess writing a book suddenly means you need reading glasses.
But, hey, THAT’S JUST MY OPINION.

US apologizes for infecting Guatemalans with STDs in the 1940s

This is the title of an article my friend, Genesis Gemini, found on CNN.com. Here’s the link: http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/10/01/u-s-apologizes-for-infecting-guatemalans-with-stds-in-1940s/.

The long and short of the article states back in the 1940’s the scientific investigation, called the U.S. Public Health Service Sexually Transmitted Disease Inoculation Study of 1946-1948, when the drug penicillin was still pretty new, they wanted to test how good it would work for people that had syphilis, gonorrhea, and chancres. By people, I mean female commercial sex workers (hookers), prisoners in the national penitentiary (predominantly the poor that couldn’t afford proper legal representation in court), and  patients in the national mental hospital (nuff said). and soldiers (double nuff said). And when I say had the illnesses, I mean there were more than 1,600 people purposely injected with the diseases. 696 with syphilis, 772 with gonorrhea and 142 with chancres.

Here’s a direct quote for the article expressing the profound and deep regret of  our top MK altered government officials:

A statement by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called the action “reprehensible.”

“We deeply regret that it happened, and we apologize to all the individuals who were affected by such abhorrent research practices,” the joint statement said. “The conduct exhibited during the study does not represent the values of the United States, or our commitment to human dignity and great respect for the people of Guatemala.”

President Barack Obama called his Guatemalan counterpart Friday “offering profound apologies and asking pardon for the deeds of the 1940s,” President Alvaro Colom told CNN en Espanol in a telephone interview from Guatemala City.

“Though it happened 64 years ago, it really is a profound violation of human rights,” said Colom, who said the report took him by surprise.

Clinton called him on Thursday, he said. “She too offered her apologies,” he said, adding that she told him she was ashamed the United States had been involved in the matter.

And you know what I have to say to that, right? blah, Blah, BLAH!!!!!

I just love what Hilary says in this line:

“The conduct exhibited during the study does not represent the values of the United States, or our commitment to human dignity and great respect for the people of Guatemala.”

Oh, really, MRS. Clinton? So, what you’re saying  is the government of the United States has just so much respect for the people of Guatemala, it infected over 1,600 poor, helpless, hopeless, and forgotten people with an incurable sexually (or governetally) transmitted diseases? Then tell us, MRS. Clinton, how much respect does the government of the United States have for it’s OWN people?

Well, believe it or not, we actually have an answer for that.

Based on the article provided by CNN (the Liberal’s favorite network), it appears the government of the great United States has quite of bit of respect for it’s people.

Thanks to the wonderful and astute Wellesley College researcher Susan Reverby, we have a slight glimpse as to exactly how much ‘respect’ the government of the United States of America has for the Black community.

This brilliant ‘revolutionary’ (I choose this adjective because what she found took a lot of work to come across, and some extreme bravery to bring to light, thus, hopefully sparking a fire for change)  found the same type of study  was conducted between 1932 and 1972 in Tuskegee, Alabama.  These monsters allowed almost  400 poor Black men with preexisting syphilis to progress without treatment. Researchers did not infect the subjects, but they did not tell them they had the disease either. So in other words, when they found out these Black men had the diseases already, and decided, out of RESPECT, they wouldn’t inject them with it, but to better and push forward in medical research, they let them continue on with life, sleeping with whomever they chose, further passing on the disease, providing free research for the government. Way to save the tax payers a buck, huh?

Here’s a direct quote from the article provided by CNN.com:

The Tuskegee study was done under the direction of Dr. John C. Cutler, a U.S. Public Health Service medical officer who died in 2003.

“I was doing what historians do,” said Reverby, a professor of the history of ideas and women and gender issues, who has written a book on the Tuskegee study. She went to the University of Pittsburgh, where Cutler had taught, and searched through an archive of his papers.

“There was nothing on Tuskeegee in the papers, but there was this report of the Guatemala study,” she told CNN in a telephone interview. “I started to read, and I almost fell off my chair.”

She found that Cutler also led the research in Guatemala. It was carried out there, in part, she said, because prostitution was legal and prisoners were allowed to bring prostitutes in for sex.

Well, as far as I’m concerned, Dr. Cutler and Dr.Godel (‘father’ of the famed Gödel Twins from Auschwitz) had the same thing in mind. Finding those that have no power, no hope, and to them, no purpose and give them their purpose…further medical science by killing them, polluting their bodies,  and finding out what their insides look like after they’re dead. BRILLIANT!!!!

But, hey, THAT’S JUST MY OPINION.
