Silver bullets, drug reform, power and lies.

When the US drug Czar (what is that?) Gil K starts making sweeping statements about drug reform and legalization that include terminology like 'silver bullets' is time to put this all back into context.
Drug reform is not about mythological creatures or things we don't understand. Its quite simple really.

The US lead Prohibition "War on Drugs" is a war on drug users, farmers, poor people, minorities and women and children.

All this misinformation and half truths from men who take drugs themselves- just legal and government subsidised forms such as alcohol and tobacco is a disgrace.
Human nature and addiction is complex no doubt but prohibition only makes everything a whole lot worse.

There is a old native American Indian proverb that says:

 "You cannot wake up someone who is pretending to be asleep"

This is the problem .
The truth has been and is as we speak being distorted and people are being manipulated by powerful legal drug using men to maintain power and control. Legalize and regulate all drugs and drug markets. Educate the people. Power to the people.


  1. Hi, I just started reading your blog today, and I really like it. i'm in the US, Boston to be specific, and the drug czar is just a colloquial term for the Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. I don't agree with him at all. My blog focuses on the week-to-week difficulties of being a professional worker with a heroin addiction. I've finally and successfully kicked my white habit which was my original DOC. Sometimes I sprinkle in rants regarding the stereotyping of addicts in the media on TV shows and in movies on my blog. I like how the posts i've read of yours, so far, focus on drug policy and politics. Very good reading. Thanks!

  2. Hi Susie,
    Thanks so much for your response and kind words. Please leave me your blog details so I can check it out. I use the word junkie with love as a term of endearment for anyone who has the guts and integrity to out themselves as an illicit drug user. As one to one. Us junkies need to support each other for sure. Take care sweet. Comment anytime.
