How do stimulants work?…The amphetamine epidemic…

Man is not perfect as he will never be fast enough, brave enough, nor strong enough compared with what is the ideal. Accordingly, when scientists realized that the transmission of a nerve impulse and, hence, nervous system activity depends on unique substances (i.e., neurotransmitters), the question of whether this mechanism can be exploited arose.

Nerve cells communicate with each other with the help of lengthened processes that do not come into contact with one another. If this is true, then how might signals be transmitted throughout the body? Within the space between cells is called a synapse. This is where active substances are released and are able to come into contact with receptors of another neuron. This works as ‘key and lock’ function that promotes the transmission of nerve impulses. The speed and quality of the transmitted signal depend on the amount of substance that is released and the availability of receptors.

Given this information, suppose that some substance can help neurotransmitters stay within the synapse and remain for an extended period of time. The resultant nerve impulse trafficking would theoretically persist throughout the nervous system! This is how amphetamine-type stimulants act. The neurotransmitter noradrenaline is responsible for the state of emotional recovery. Together with another neurotransmitter (i.e., dopamine), noradrenaline is able to increase wakefulness and energy leading to improved desire to work and high confidence.

When something is threatening, the so-called sympathetic-adrenergic mechanism of urgent adaptation in response to extreme conditions is activated. This is the effect that amphetamines provoke in humans. They release norepinephrine and dopamine into the synapse and interfere with its re-uptake, which is why people taking such substances feels surges of energy. However, nothing occurs without a cost. After administering amphetamine, neurotransmitter reserves become depleted, which is followed by a state of depression.


NexT TekST Wuhz Fruhm:

Amphetamine Effects

Amphetamines act on dopamine and norepinephrine neurotransmitter chemical outputs in the brain, according to the University of Maryland. In effect, these drugs stimulate dopamine production while at the same time preventing the brain from reabsorbing chemical releases. As dopamine and norepinephrine levels rise, a person experiences the drug’s effects.

For most people, amphetamine effects appear as:

An increase in energy
Euphoric feelings
Talking more than usual
Heightened sensory awareness
Increased focus and concentration

Interestingly enough, amphetamines and cocaine produce similar effects though amphetamine effects can last considerably longer than cocaine’s. Whether taken on a prescription basis or used for recreational purposes, the longer a person uses these drugs the more the potential for abuse and addiction.
Amphetamine Drug Uses

Amphetamines can produce different effects depending on the chemical make-up of a person’s brain. Likewise, certain psychological and physical disorders create chemical imbalances that amphetamine drugs can correct under the right circumstances.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, accepted medical uses for amphetamines include:

ADD/ADHD
Narcolepsy
Obesity

Most amphetamine substances consist of two different compounds: levoamphetamine and dextroamphetamine with dextroamphetamine being the stronger of the two. By combining these two agents in varying amounts, any one drug can produce certain desired effects.

Medical uses

Amphetamine activates receptors in the brain and increases the activity of a number of neurotransmitters, especially norepinephrine and dopamine.

Dopamine is associated with pleasure, movement, and attention.

Amphetamine has been trialed for a wide variety of conditions. Now, it is mainly used to treat ADHD, and, rarely, depression. In the past, it has been used to treat narcolepsy and to help with weight loss, but this is less common now.

What is a Meth Overdose?

An overdose is when the levels of drugs in the body reach toxic amounts, and the system can no longer break the drugs down safely. In the case of a stimulant like crystal meth, this can raise body temperatures, blood pressure, and heart rates to dangerous levels, causing a heart attack or stroke.

What Causes a Crystal Meth Overdose?

A typical crystal meth high may last around eight hours, but according to the Global Information Network About Drugs (GINAD), it takes at least 12 hours for even half of the drug to be out of your system. This means that taking more just after the high wears off can be dangerous since it may inadvertently lead to extremely high levels of meth in the body.

Additional overdose factors

Mixing crystal meth with other drugs or alcohol can heighten the side effects and increase the potential for an overdose.


Thuh Nekst Tekst Wuhz Frhum:

Meth Overdose Kuhndishuhnz

Over time, repeated meth use can lead to the development of physical dependence and tolerance. As tolerance builds, meth users will often need to continually increase their usual dose to achieve the desired high. This is extremely dangerous because when a user consumes too much meth, he can experience an overdose…

Being aware of the signs and symptoms of a meth overdose is essential, as the sooner that a person experiencing an overdose receives help, the higher the chances of survival.


Thuh Nekst Tekst Wuhz Frhum:

Signs and Symptoms

A meth overdose may be acute or chronic:

An acute overdose occurs when a person uses a large amount of meth one time and experiences an adverse reaction. Acute overdoses may be fatal in some cases.
A chronic overdose refers to the cumulative, negative health effects of ongoing methamphetamine abuse.

Both acute and chronic meth overdoses can have disastrous consequences.

Man with pain in chest area

Common signs of an acute meth overdose include 2, 5:

Enlarged pupils.
Rapid, slowed, or irregular heart rate.
Difficulty breathing.
Chest pains.
Heart attack.
Stroke.
High body temperature.
High blood pressure.
Kidney failure.
Stomach pain.
Altered mental status.
Agitation.
Paranoia.

During a meth overdose, altered mental status can include psychotic episodes, irritability, and/or suicidal ideation 2. In rare cases, a person may experience coma or seizures.

A chronic overdose refers to the accumulated health effects of long-term use. Chronic meth abuse can lead to:

Anxiety.
Severe sleep disturbances.
Extreme mood changes.
Violent outbursts.


Increase Uhv Risk Factors

Certain risk factors may increase the likelihood of a meth overdose including 2, 4:

Mixing meth with other drugs and alcohol.
Using larger and larger amounts of the drug, e.g., to combat tolerance.
Injecting the drug.
The presence of pre-existing health conditions, such as hypertension…

Meth Ohvrdohss Prevention

Taking steps to prevent a meth overdose can minimize the chances of negative complications, including heart attack, stroke, and death. Avoiding certain risk factors, such as using high doses, injecting the drug, and mixing meth with other drugs and alcohol, may minimize the likelihood of an overdose…

What to do in Case of an Overdose

If you witness a meth overdose, call 911 immediately.

Overdoses can be potentially life-threatening and should be managed by a medical professional. When calling for emergency help, be prepared to share the following information, if possible 5:

The victim’s age and weight.
The type and amount of drug used.
Whether the drug was smoked, inhaled, or injected.
The last time the drug was taken.

Securing professional help as quickly as possible is important during a meth overdose. The long-term prognosis for those recovering from an overdose will depend on how much of the drug was used and how quickly the person was treated 5.

If you or someone you know has suffered a meth overdose and is lucky enough to have survived, you may wish to consider treatment and/or prevention strategies to avoid future complications. Those who have survived a meth overdose should embrace the opportunity to make positive lifestyle changes.

Herroin With Meth Combo Myt Bee Dangerous

Thuh NekST TekST Wuhz Frum:

Using Heroin With Methamphetamine: A [ Potentially ] Dangerous Combination

Using heroin and methamphetamine together is dangerous because each drug has the ability to mask the effects of the other. Like other opioids, heroin slows parts of the brain, while meth stimulates and works to increase brain activity.

The masking effect can make it difficult to tell if a person is experiencing an overdose. Potentially lethal overdoses can occur if one of the drugs is taken in a larger dose than the other or if one substance naturally lasts longer in the body.

For example, heroin slows breathing while meth may increase it, making a person feel as if they were breathing normally. This can make it difficult to tell when the heroin dose has exceeded the person’s tolerance. When this happens, it can result in overdose effects and possibly death.

The reverse can also happen because the effects of meth usually last longer than the effects of heroin. Heroin will work to decrease heart rate, but as it wears off, meth can dramatically increase heart rate, which can lead to sudden heart arrhythmia, stroke and potential heart failure.

Dangers of Snorting, Smoking, or Injecting Meth
Frum: https://americanaddictioncenters.org/meth-treatment/smoking-snorting-injecting

Frequent, ongoing intake of meth will eventually cause health problems, particularly if it’s smoked, snorted, or injected.

Snorting, predictably, can cause a lot of damage to the sinus cavity. People snort drugs because they can be absorbed through the sensitive mucus membranes in the nose. Over time, this causes the tissue to become dry and worn, resulting in chronic runny or bloody noses and sinus infections. Eventually, a hole can be worn in the septum.

According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, smoking meth is the form of intake that is most likely to result in addiction. Any kind of smoking is hard on the mouth, throat, and lungs. Due to the fact that it’s made of such harsh chemicals, smoking meth tends to result in a condition referred to as meth mouth. Tooth decay and damage are common, including mouth sores and gum disease, the latter of which can lead to heart problems if left untreated.

Injecting drugs comes with its own unique risks. Needle sharing for drugs like meth is common and puts individuals at a high risk for contracting dangerous diseases like HIV and hepatitis C. Repeated use of needles also tends to cause general infections and collapsed veins. The meth particles in the solution can cause blockages in and near the heart, brain, and liver, causing serious health problems. The substance can also cause infection of the heart tissue, which is a very dangerous condition.

Following Frum: https://dancesafe.org/speed/

Injecting methamphetamine reaches the brain almost immediately, increasing the possibility of overdose…

Although rare, methamphetamine can cause seizures, heart attacks, strokes, and death from overdose.

How does meth affect your life? > Safer ways to use

Methods of Use

Be aware of the risks of each method of use and take steps to reduce them:

Snorting: Snorting meth can lead to headaches and burns and sores on the interior membrane of the nose
Swallowing: Swallowing meth can cause damage to the teeth, throat and stomach lining.
Smoking meth can damage the teeth and lungs.
Injecting: Injecting meth can result in major damage to the body’s organs, inflamed and blocked blood vessels, abscesses and blood poisoning. Bacterial infections can occur, which may damage the heart valves, cause vein collapse, infection at injection site, bruising or more serious injuries if users inject into an artery or tissue.

Each type of drug using equipment has their unique set of risks, and sharing this equipment can increase the risk of being infected with things such as cold sores, or blood-borne viruses such as Hepatitis C or HIV.

Tips to reduce the risks

Try to use with a trusted person or group, so they can keep an eye out for you in case something goes wrong.
Some methods of use have a lower risk of blood borne virus transmission, snorting or swallowing your drugs can be a safer option.
If smoking meth, it is important to fully vaporise the meth. This will mean you are not inhaling liquid, which is harmful to your lungs. For this reason, consider using a jet lighter.
If injecting, use new injecting equipment every time and use correct swabbing and filtering techniques. If you do choose to re-use your equipment, make sure it is cleaned as best as you can.
Don’t share smoking or injecting equipment even if you know the person well. Even if you both have Hepatitis C, you may have different strains/genotypes, which could mean you get a new infection if you share equipment.

Pharmacologic actions of methamphetamine…

In the brain, a primary action of methamphetamine is to elevate the levels of extracellular monoamine neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine) by promoting their release from the nerve endings. We do not completely understand how methamphetamine causes neurotransmitter release, but it appears to involve redistribution of neurotransmitters from synaptic vesicles (via the vesicular monoamine transporter VMAT2) to the neuronal cytoplasm and the reverse transport of neurotransmitters through the plasma membrane transporter into the extracellular space.

In summary, our study determined the molecular mechanisms involved in transport and disposition of methamphetamine and its metabolites. Moreover, our studies showed that methamphetamine has the potential to inhibit hOCT (human organic cation transporter) and hMATE (human multidrug and toxin extrusion) transporters at clinically relevant concentrations. Finally, we identified complex kinetic interactions between amphetamines and hOCT2 (human organic cation transporter). Our findings provide useful information that may be considered when prescribing medications to methamphetamine users to mitigate the risk of DDIs (drug-drug interaction)s that may potentially compromise therapeutic efficacy and drug safety.

Legalize All Drugs And End the drug war


Legalize MeThampheTamine

Thuh NeksT TekST Wuhz Fruhm:

Legalize Methamphetamine

I’m the last guy who ought to argue for the legalization of [any now illegal drug].1

As a practicing criminal defense attorney, I make a good income from defending people who are charged with drug crimes. If the drug war ended, I would lose a substantial portion of my income. Additionally, some would call me a health nut. I go to the gym six times a week and eat organic foods as often as possible. I wouldn’t change my healthy lifestyle if drugs were legal. I have three little kids. I don’t want them ever to become drug addicts. I want them to grow up in a safe world. Indeed, that’s exactly why I want the drug war to end.

When I was in law school, a wise law professor of mine taught me that if you are asking the wrong question, the answer doesn’t matter. In regards to MeTh, the question is not whether MeTh is dangerous and unhealthy. Over the years, I have represented countless MeTh users. I have seen the consequences of MeTh use up close. I am convinced MeTh use [can] ruin the user’s life. It is an extraordinarily dangerous [possibly sometimes too oft used] drug. Few drugs are more [habit-forming] or [sometimes] dangerous than MeTh.2

Legalize Methamphetamine

Many of those who oppose legalization of MeTh identify the horrors of MeTh use. I entirely agree with their assessment of MeTh’s dangers. Asking whether MeTh is dangerous or unhealthy or addictive is not the right question.

The relevant question is whether our society would be better served if MeTh was manufactured, distributed, bought and sold legally. The answer is yes.

There are two related but separate reasons why ending the drug war is critical.

  • First, a free society requires that the drug war end. I refer to this argument as the freedom argument.
  • * Second, the consequences of ending the drug war would yield economic and other benefits which would greatly benefit our society. I refer to this argument as the consequentialist argument.

Most readers will not be persuaded by the freedom argument. This fact is disturbing to me. In fact, many of the issues which plague our world will persist unless and until people come to respect the principles embodied in terms such as individual responsibility, self-ownership, and freedom. These concepts are what our country was founded upon and the very reason why America prospered. Now, they are given mere lip service if they are considered at all. If you shrug your shoulders and brush off the freedom argument, you should be ashamed of yourself. Whether you realize it or not, you are the problem.

Legalize Methamphetamine

THE FREEDOM ARGUMENT

I’m a good dad. I don’t want my kids using MeTh. Indeed, I will force my opinion about not using MeTh upon my kids. I will prevent them from using MeTh by force if necessary.3

As a dad, I have other policies as well. For example, my kids are not allowed to ride their motorized quads without helmets or to ride in the car without seatbelts. They are not allowed to smoke cigarettes or skydive either. However, at some point, my kids will be responsible to decide for themselves what activities are too dangerous for them. Both assessing the dangerousness of an activity and determining how much danger is acceptable will become the exclusive domain of each of my kids as it pertains to them. Resolving these questions for one’s self is an important task and responsibility of any free person.

The question of who gets to make decisions about the disposition of certain property is central to understanding freedom. Who gets to decide what activities are too dangerous for you? Should I get to decide what activities are too dangerous for you? What about your neighbor? Or the majority? Or the president? Or Congress? Or some judge? In a free society, the owner of the property gets to decide how the property is used.4

Because you own your body, I assert that you should decide how your body is used or abused.5

Legalize All Drugs And End the drug war

In terms of the freedom argument, the question of legalization of MeTh poses exactly the same question as many other issues currently confounding our fellow citizens. The following non-exhaustive list contains questions which are each different versions of the same question about how a particular body is used:

Should people be allowed to eat Big Macs?

Should people be allowed to consume any unhealthy foods at all?

Should people be allowed to play football despite the risk of serious injury?

Should people be allowed to skydive or rock climb?

Should people be allowed to ride in cars without seatbelts?

Should unprotected sex between consenting adult strangers be allowed?

Should consenting adults be allowed to have sex in exchange for money?

Should adults be permitted to ingest Marijuana for health reasons?

Should adults be permitted to ingest Marijuana for mere personal pleasure?

Should competent adults be allowed to voluntarily end their lives if they choose?

Each question begs the initial question about who gets to decide how a particular human body is used. Those of us who are pro-freedom would in each case conclude that the [Central Nervous SysTem or Nerve Mind] of the particular human body in question should decide how that body is used.6

The initial issue of who decides must be resolved first.

Although I would try my best to persuade others not to use MeTh, I concede it is not my decision. Among adults, persuasion is fine, but coercion is not. I will not force others to live by my assessments of dangers. I respect the property of other people such that I respect their right to use their property in ways I vigorously disagree with.7

I have no claim on how others use their property unless and until their activities trespass upon my property.8

Legalize Methamphetamine

The freedom argument is much bigger than the question of whether MeTh should be legal. It certainly resolves the question, but it raises larger questions about the very nature of government. Any legitimate role of government is confined to protecting rights. Indeed, unless you disagree with the principles upon which this country was founded and believe government is the source of rights which may be distributed to us or taken away, you must agree that government can have no rights other than the ones we individually delegate to it. Because you have no right to be my daddy, you have no such right to delegate to government. Further, because no person individually has any such right, even the majority of people added together collectively have no such right. Therefore, when the government acts as my daddy, it acts wrongfully; even if it acts pursuant to an accurately counted democratic vote.9

Although it is perfectly fine for me to act as a daddy to my kids, the government has no right to act as a daddy for us.

Some people posit that legalized MeTh would send the wrong message to people about using MeTh. However, the government’s role is not to send messages to us about what is right or wrong or good or bad. We don’t need messages from government. Free people determine for themselves how to run their lives. I have a right to be a self-destructive idiot if I choose. I [determine] me.

Additionally, the “messages from government” objection overlooks an important point. The concepts of legal and illegal are far different from the concepts of right and wrong or good and bad. Because an activity is legally permissible does not obligate people to conclude such an activity is right or good.10

Legalize Methamphetamine

Merely because the law allows my kids to insult other kids doesn’t prevent my wife and me from successfully teaching them not to do it. The unwillingness or inability of many people to invest the mental acuity to distinguish between these concepts has contributed to an intellectual feeblemindedness which is akin to a malignant tumor killing our society. The “messages from government” objection nourishes that tumor. We should embrace the concept that we are free to adopt personal standards of conduct which exceed the minimum threshold defined by law.

I regret devoting so few words to the freedom argument. It deserves much more. Many others have far more eloquently detailed the case for freedom. I hope to live to witness the day when the freedom argument is accorded the respect it deserves. I hope this skeletal argument stirs the interest of those who read it and encourages them to explore it more fully. The reason our society has been deteriorating in so many ways is because it has come to accord less and less respect to the freedoms of others. Winning the freedom argument is the only way to destroy the [legal cancers that infect] our world.

THE CONSEQUENTIALIST ARGUMENT

Some people say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. They are right. The government has been recklessly ramping up the war on drugs for the past thirty-five years.11

Every year we get tougher laws and tougher sentences. Approximately 1.6 million people are needlessly arrested every year for non-violent drug offenses. Many more non-violent drug users are simply charged without arrest. Some of them are students who lose their student loans and can no longer afford college. Others are people who hold professional licenses and can no longer work in their professions. Lives are being needlessly ruined.

The growth of the prison industry has mushroomed. We now have private companies in the prison business.12

This is no surprise when you consider that the United States claims 4.6% of the world’s population but 22.5% of the world’s prison population. The DEA has grown from 2,775 employees in 1972 to almost 11,000 employees with 86 foreign offices in 62 countries in 2005. We have well over two million people in prison. Since 1980, America’s general population has increased 20%, while America’s prison population has increased at twenty times that rate or an astonishing 400%. America imprisons more people as a percentage of our population than any other country in the world.13

Legalize Methamphetamine

This is a sad state of affairs for any country; especially one which refers to itself as the land of the free.

Despite the explosive expansion of government to fight the war on drugs, drug use is more prevalent today than it was before the war on drugs started. Additionally, drugs are cheaper, more potent and easier to get than they were in the early years of the drug war.14

Throwing more money at the issue has not resulted in fewer people using drugs. Even the federal government admits drug use has increased recently from 6% in 1993 to over 8% in 2003.15

Despite the frantically increasing efforts to curb the flow of drugs, high school students report drugs are still easy to obtain. Almost 90% of twelfth graders report Marijuana is “very easy” or “fairly easy” to get. Over 47% of twelfth graders say cocaine is “very easy” or “fairly easy” to get and more than 32% say heroin is “very easy” or “fairly easy” to get.16

I have had clients tell me they became addicted to drugs when they were in prison. Even in a prison setting, drugs are prevalent.

Legalize Methamphetamine

Not only are [recreational] drugs readily available, some of them have become more dangerous as a result of the drug war. Looking specifically at MeTh, the drug war has resulted in exacerbating the dangers associated with amphetamine use. While attempting to put the hysteria currently surrounding MeTh use in perspective, a columnist named Jack Shafer who writes for Slate aptly stated the following:

In the mid-1960s, just before the government declared war on amphetamines, the average user swallowed his pills, which were of medicinal purity and potency. Snorting and smoking stimulants was almost unheard of, and very few users injected intravenously. Today, 40 years later, snorting, smoking [In reality Vaporizing and Toking], and injecting methamphetamines of unpredictable potency and dubious purity has become the norm—with all the dreadful health consequences. If the current scene illustrates how the government is winning the war on drugs, I’d hate to see what losing looks like. See, www.slate.com/id/2123838 August 3, 2005.

The United States now spends over fifty billion dollars every year to combat the war on drugs.17

The war on drugs has been a colossal and unparalleled failure.18

Despite my countless conversations with judges, prosecutors, police officers, DEA agents and drug dealers, it is extraordinarily rare for me to find anyone who thinks the drug war is working or will ever work under any circumstances. Indeed, despite my countless invitations, I have yet to find anyone willing to debate me publicly on the drug war. Imagine a fifty billion dollar annual program nobody seems willing to defend.

I understand why nobody wants to debate me on this issue. I believe the people who work in the justice system, and truly understand the problems associated with the drug war, know they would be debating the wrong side of the issue. I recently argued the case for MeTh legalization before a group of judges and prosecutors. I was disappointed during question time when, despite my provoking and challenging them, there was only one half-hearted attempt to engage me on the issues. The case for legalization is overwhelming.

I have had occasion to talk privately and confidentially with many drug dealers for well over a decade. I estimate I have represented hundreds of drug dealers. Although some have simply been users who sell to support their habit, others have been major players in big drug organizations. I have found many of them to be bright people who are well aware that an end to the drug war would immediately put an end to their businesses. They realize that they could not compete with large corporations in a legal market. Their ability to make money by manufacturing, distributing and selling drugs exists solely because of the drug war. They very much want the war on drugs to continue and even expand.

Legalize Methamphetamine

Many drug dealers understand that each large drug bust brings increased profits for them. Although a drug seizure is bad news for the particular drug dealer involved, it is wonderful news for all the other drug dealers in the market. When you see government agents celebrating a large drug seizure, imagine all the other drug dealers celebrating along with them.

The economics of drug sales are no different than any other product sold in the market. Every big drug seizure causes a temporary decrease in the supply of that drug in the relevant market. However, the drug seizure doesn’t affect the demand for the drugs. Drug users still want drugs despite some drug dealer being arrested.19

When the demand remains constant and the supply is decreased, prices go up. Imagine being a drug dealer with a big supply of drugs on hand when prices suddenly go up. It would be accurate to say that drug dealers gain the most, through increased profits, when government agents make a seizure. Increased profits also serve to entice people to embark on new careers as drug dealers. Drug dealers love the drug war and do not want it to end. If you support the drug war, you are on the side of, and act as an unpaid lobbyist for the plight of the drug dealer.

Some of the drug dealers I have met are actually very nice, non-violent people. I have represented drug dealers who do not use drugs at all. They were simply unable or unwilling to refuse an illegal opportunity to make a lot of money. However, some of the drug dealers I have met are not nice people. They sell their drugs with the help of violent street gangs. Some of these gang members intentionally market drugs to kids. Because gang members generally can not utilize the court system to settle disputes over drug sales, nor can they insure their merchandise against losses, violence and guns are necessarily involved.

Legalize Methamphetamine

Simply causing MeTh to be manufactured illegally is by itself a huge problem. As a result of illegal MeTh labs, toxic chemicals used to produce methamphetamine are often discarded in rivers, fields, and forests. The environmental damage which occurs results in ever-expanding cleanup costs. The massive growth in costs to clean up such environmental messes is also illustrative of the failure of current policy. The DEA’s annual cost for cleanup of clandestine MeTh laboratories in the United States has increased steadily from 2 million in 1995 to 23.8 million a mere seven years later in 2002.20

A huge collection of well-documented facts about the failure of the current drug policy can be found at www.drugwarfacts.org.

I have heard the saying that those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it. I suspect some criminal defense lawyer in the 1920’s incurred wrath from the establishment for writing an article advocating the legalization of alcohol. I would bet the nice attorney was attacked by small thinkers who repeatedly pointed out the harmful attributes of alcohol.21

In case you are unaware, the government decided in 1919 to amend the United States Constitution to grant power to Congress to prohibit the manufacture, sale and distribution of alcohol.22

Their drug war played out just like ours; a complete and total disaster. However, it was the best thing that ever happened to organized crime. The manufacture, sale and distribution of alcohol were conducted entirely in illegal and violent markets. Criminals prospered and criminal organizations grew. A major crime wave began in the 1920s and continually increased until the end of prohibition in 1933 when it immediately started to reverse.23

Legalize Methamphetamine

Prohibition did nothing to curb the desire of people to use alcohol. Indeed, both the per capita consumption of alcohol as well as the rate of alcoholism increased during prohibition.24 25

Illegal clandestine stills manufactured alcohol of inconsistent and unpredictable quality. Law enforcement was overwhelmed chasing after people involved in alcohol-related crimes. Does any of this seem familiar to you?

In 1933, they figured it out and repealed the eighteenth amendment.26

To be fair, we still have people with substantial alcohol abuse problems. It is a real problem. We have no shortage of alcohol-related crimes. However, violent criminal street gangs do not make money from the sale of alcohol. Although few people “homebrew” alcoholic beverages, people do not brew alcoholic beverages in clandestine labs. Nobody is offered large cash rewards to transport alcohol. The Budweiser guy doesn’t fight the Miller guy if they both happen to arrive at the store at the same time to deliver their drug. Alcohol companies settle disputes peacefully in court. Alcoholics can seek help without the fear of criminal prosecutions. More resources can be devoted to apprehending real thugs because our justice system is not overloaded with cases of people manufacturing, distributing or selling alcohol. Isn’t this obviously a better deal?

Legalize Methamphetamine

We know certain things for sure. If MeTh was no longer illegal:

1. All dangerous clandestine MeTh labs in residential neighborhoods would close;

2. All dangerous street gangs would be out of the MeTh business;

3. Every dime currently spent on MeTh prohibition could be spent on real crime;27

4. Meth addicts would have no legal disincentive to seek help;

5. The manufacture of MeTh would be safe and produce a consistent product [most likely with a higher percent of purity]; and

6. Toxic waste from MeTh production would be safely disposed of.

If you support maintaining the war on drugs, you must necessarily conclude that either I am wrong about the above six assertions or that the benefits of the drug war outweigh the obvious benefits contained in the six assertions. It is difficult for me to imagine one could rationally and honestly dispute any of the six assertions. They are obvious and virtually guaranteed to flow from legalization. Therefore, a drug war supporter is left with the argument that the drug war’s benefits outweigh the benefits contained in the six assertions. If this is your position, I challenge you to honestly reweigh the costs and benefits of each scenario. Unless you put your finger on the scale because you personally benefit from the drug war, you must conclude legalization wins.

Legalize Methamphetamine

I do not intend to claim that the above six assertions are the only benefits of legalization. I list them together because I find them to be indisputable. There are other benefits of legalization. I suspect many people would either not experiment with or stop using MeTh. Recently, a teenage MeTh user confirmed for me that she and her friends started using MeTh at least in part because it was illegal. I cannot recall any friends of mine who didn’t drink alcohol prior to reaching age twenty-one. Indeed, I consumed more alcohol prior to reaching age twenty-one than I do today or since I have been age twenty-one and one month.

In countries where the alcohol drinking age is sixteen, rates of alcohol-related problems appear to be lower than in the United States where the drinking age is twenty-one.28

The National Institute on Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse reports that in 2003, 5.55% of Americans were either alcohol-abusing or alcohol dependent. The Austrian drinking age is sixteen and 2.2% are regarded as alcohol dependent.29

The German drinking age is sixteen and 3.9% of Germans’ alcohol use is considered harmful.30

Even during prohibition, while rates of death from alcoholism and cirrhosis were rising in the United States, they were decreasing during the same time period in Great Britain, Denmark and Ireland where alcohol use was legal.31

I recently traveled to Amsterdam where Marijuana use is legal for those over eighteen years of age. Marijuana use among minors in Amsterdam is decreasing. Indeed, the rate of Marijuana use by minors is five times less than what it is in the United States.32

Even among adults, the rate of Marijuana use in the United States is twice as high as in the Netherlands where use of Marijuana is legal.33

Legalize Methamphetamine

Many of the locals informed me that Marijuana use is simply not exciting and they virtually don’t ever use it unless people from out of town are visiting. As you may expect, I had a lot of questions for proprietors of Marijuana coffee shops. I personally witnessed a peaceful and safe Marijuana trade in Amsterdam. Although I wouldn’t want to live there for unrelated economic reasons, the Netherlands is a good example of why legalization makes sense.34

Tobacco is a far deadlier drug than is MeTh. For the year 2000, tobacco is blamed for causing 435,000 deaths.35

Deaths resulting from the direct or indirect use of all illegal drugs including MeTh, cocaine, OxyContin, heroin, and ecstasy for the same year total 17,000. id.36 37

Despite the fact that tobacco is legal, tobacco use is declining. In 1956, 42% of adults smoked. In 1980, only 33% of Americans smoked. Additionally, in 1977, 29% of high school seniors smoked. Four years later, the number of high school seniors who smoke had fallen to 20%.38

Education about the dangers of tobacco use can be credited for the decline of tobacco use which occurred while the drug was legally available and without any of the crime and violence associated with the drug war. The recent rise in popularity of non-alcoholic beer and low nicotine cigarettes can be attributed to the same phenomenon. The same beneficial effects could be applicable to MeTh and other illegal drugs.

Legalize Methamphetamine

Fortunately, people are slowly waking up to the fact that this war on drugs is the entirely wrong approach. I am encouraged by a courageous group of law enforcement and former law enforcement members who have joined together to form a group entitled Law Enforcement Against Prohibition or LEAP. A visit to their website at http://leap.cc/ is well worth the time invested. The over two thousand law enforcement members of LEAP state the following, “The membership of LEAP believe to save lives and lower the rates of disease, crime, and addiction, as well as to conserve tax dollars, we must end drug prohibition.” The members of LEAP are willing and eager to debate their views with anyone willing to try to defend the drug war. Also, judges are finally starting to speak out. See, http://www.judgesagainstthedrugwar.org which contains judicial opinions critical of the drug war.

Astute observers of the drug war might point out that the $50-$69 billion dollars currently being spent on the drug war annually could be used to more effectively address the problems associated with drug abuse. That money could go a long way to facilitate drug abuse education, treatment, and prevention.

Additionally, some may argue that legalization of drugs could be administered in much the same way alcohol is currently dealt with. Certainly, people who commit real crimes should be punished whether or not they were using drugs at the time. Legalization of drugs does not mean laws must permit unsafe drug-impaired drivers on the roads. Further, employers and other private citizens would be free to prohibit any and all drug use at their workplaces or on their property as they can now with alcohol. Indeed, what would change with a reasonable scheme of legalization would be a deletion of much of the crime and violence only; everything else would remain much the same or improve. It is a substantially better deal than the ongoing and worsening disaster we currently endure.

Legalize Methamphetamine

The drug war is un-American. One cannot simultaneously value freedom and yet support a governmental scheme which denies the individual his or her sovereignty over his or her own body. Indeed, control over one’s own body is the most fundamental of all rights. Worse, the drug war has effectively birthed countless violent criminal enterprises. This possibly well-intentioned effort has resulted in effectively creating our 51st state; the state of incarceration. The state’s population is growing out of control and it is choking the life out of the other 50 states. Thousands of peaceful Americans are currently living in cages because of the drug war. The drug war is lunacy and it must end [as soon as possible]. As it did for the revolutionaries who founded our country, the time has come for us to be bold and courageous. We must speak out against this horrendous mistake. We have the better case.

1 I support legalizing all drugs which are currently illegal.
2 Incidentally, many say tobacco is actually more addictive than MeTh. Isn’t it interesting that approximately 50% of tobacco users have quit using tobacco in the past ten years all during a time while the drug was completely legal.
3 My ex-wife is a good mom. She supports my ban on MeTh use for our kids.
4 I acknowledge this concept is extraordinarily radical and barely comprehensible to some. For a better understanding, find someone who refers to himself or herself as a “libertarian” and talk to that person.

5 If you assert no claim of ownership to your body, I may be interested in laying a claim. However, I would want to see you first.

6 In case you are confused, the correct answer to each question is yes.

7 Can you honestly say this? If not, you should think about what possibly justifies you in controlling another’s property. You should also not complain when others seek to control your property. It’s a freedom thing.

8 As a finer point, when their activities trespass upon my property, they are now using my property without my permission. Said more precisely, others are free to use their property in any way they please with no restrictions. A trespass is simply the acknowledgement they are wrongfully using another’s property.

9 Democracy and freedom are not the same concepts. Freedom is when the owner of the property decides how the property is used. Democracy is when a majority of non-owners decide how an owner must use his or her property. Democracy and freedom are often incompatible.

10 The opposite is also true for some acts which are currently illegal.

11 In 1969, Nixon spent $65 million on the drug war. In 1982, Reagan spent $1.65 billion on the drug war. Bush’s budget for 2006 requests $12.4 billion dollars which is a 2.2% increase over his 2005 budget.

12 I have nothing against private prisons. Indeed, the private sector should be administering prisons. My point here is simply to note that private entrepreneurs recognize the huge potential to prosper in this growth industry.

13 732 people out of every 100,000 live in government cages as of 2005.

14 These are facts asserted by current and former law enforcement officers. See www.leap.cc

17 Some former police officers claim the current annual amount spent is sixty nine billion dollars per year. See, http://leap.cc

18 Some may say George W. Bush’s Iraqi policy is a failure of such magnitude that it rivals the drug war for the biggest failure attributable to a governmental effort. I admit it is a tough call.

19 Most drug addicts don’t watch the evening news or read the newspapers. They are not generally aware of drug busts or any other news for that matter

20 National Drug Threat Assessment 2004 (Johnstown, P.A.: National Drug Intelligence Center, April 2004), p. 18.

21 Yes, I am aware that alcohol abuse is harmful. My point here is that they were focusing on the wrong question.

22 It is worth noting that at least they acknowledged congress otherwise had no such power by amending the constitution rather than pretending the Commerce Clause includes such a power. I’m still searching for that amendment which grants power to Congress to run today’s drug war.

26 At least their politicians had enough spine to admit their mistakes. With very few exceptions, today’s jellyfish politician is too worried about what the general public thinks to take a real leadership stand on this issue.

27 By “real crime” I mean when people trespass on the rights of others by force or fraud.

28 I realize such comparisons are difficult for a variety of reasons. However, the numbers are different enough that it appears a reasonably certain conclusion can be drawn.

A diet for recovery should include:

Complex carbohydrates (50% to 55% of the calories you consume),

  • which means plenty of grains, fruits and vegetable

Dairy products or other foods rich in calcium

Moderate protein (15% to 20% of calories):

  • two to four ounces twice a day of meat or fish (or another high-protein food such as tofu [ Or Milk ])

Fat choices (30% of calories), preferably good oils (EssenTial Fatty Acids)

NexT TexT Frum: https://www.leaf.tv/articles/how-to-naturally-detox-from-drugs-at-home/

Drink lots of fluids

A daily intake of eight to 12 glasses of fluids each day flushes out the toxins and chemicals. All healthy fluids water, fruit juices, vegetable juices and herbal teas are a good way to clean the body internally. The wastes, impurities and drug residues are washed out of the cells, tissues and organs.

Lose fat by exercising.

Even if you aren't overweight, losing fat will help with detoxification from drugs. Most chemicals and toxins that enter the body are stored in the fat cell. By losing excess fat, a person also loses toxins. To lose the fat, do aerobic exercise. Swimming, running, dancing and cycling are good cardiovascular exercises that help to burn calories and fat. During a high-impact workout, a person also builds up a sweat. Toxins are released through the sweat glands. Building muscle with weights or resistance training also burns fat. In time, the muscles replace the fat deposits. Breathing deeply during any type of exercise helps to expel toxic carbon dioxide from the lungs. On inhalation, more oxygen enters the body.

Have a healthy diet.

Eating fruits and vegetables gives the body the nutrients it needs to repair itself

  • and carry out its many functions.

Organic foods are more expensive, but they are better for the body,

  • because they contain fewer chemicals like preservatives and pesticides.

Adding fiber to the diet helps in moving wastes & debris through the intestines & out the body.

Legalize Methamphetamine

I’m the last guy who ought to argue for the legalization of [any now illegal drug].1

As a practicing criminal defense attorney, I make a good income from defending people who are charged with drug crimes. If the drug war ended, I would lose a substantial portion of my income. Additionally, some would call me a health nut. I go to the gym six times a week and eat organic foods as often as possible. I wouldn’t change my healthy lifestyle if drugs were legal. I have three little kids. I don’t want them ever to become drug addicts. I want them to grow up in a safe world. Indeed, that’s exactly why I want the drug war to end.

When I was in law school, a wise law professor of mine taught me that if you are asking the wrong question, the answer doesn’t matter. In regards to MeTh, the question is not whether MeTh is dangerous and unhealthy. Over the years, I have represented countless MeTh users. I have seen the consequences of MeTh use up close. I am convinced MeTh use [can] ruin the user’s life. It is an extraordinarily dangerous [possibly sometimes too oft used] drug. Few drugs are more [habit-forming] or [sometimes] dangerous than MeTh.2

Legalize Methamphetamine

Many of those who oppose legalization of MeTh identify the horrors of MeTh use. I entirely agree with their assessment of MeTh’s dangers. Asking whether MeTh is dangerous or unhealthy or addictive is not the right question.

The relevant question is whether our society would be better served if MeTh was manufactured, distributed, bought and sold legally. The answer is yes.

There are two related but separate reasons why ending the drug war is critical.

  • First, a free society requires that the drug war end. I refer to this argument as the freedom argument.
  • * Second, the consequences of ending the drug war would yield economic and other benefits which would greatly benefit our society. I refer to this argument as the consequentialist argument.

Most readers will not be persuaded by the freedom argument. This fact is disturbing to me. In fact, many of the issues which plague our world will persist unless and until people come to respect the principles embodied in terms such as individual responsibility, self-ownership, and freedom. These concepts are what our country was founded upon and the very reason why America prospered. Now, they are given mere lip service if they are considered at all. If you shrug your shoulders and brush off the freedom argument, you should be ashamed of yourself. Whether you realize it or not, you are the problem.

Legalize Methamphetamine

THE FREEDOM ARGUMENT

I’m a good dad. I don’t want my kids using MeTh. Indeed, I will force my opinion about not using MeTh upon my kids. I will prevent them from using MeTh by force if necessary.3

As a dad, I have other policies as well. For example, my kids are not allowed to ride their motorized quads without helmets or to ride in the car without seatbelts. They are not allowed to smoke cigarettes or skydive either. However, at some point, my kids will be responsible to decide for themselves what activities are too dangerous for them. Both assessing the dangerousness of an activity and determining how much danger is acceptable will become the exclusive domain of each of my kids as it pertains to them. Resolving these questions for one’s self is an important task and responsibility of any free person.

The question of who gets to make decisions about the disposition of certain property is central to understanding freedom. Who gets to decide what activities are too dangerous for you? Should I get to decide what activities are too dangerous for you? What about your neighbor? Or the majority? Or the president? Or Congress? Or some judge? In a free society, the owner of the property gets to decide how the property is used.4

Because you own your body, I assert that you should decide how your body is used or abused.5

Legalize All Drugs And End the drug war

In terms of the freedom argument, the question of legalization of MeTh poses exactly the same question as many other issues currently confounding our fellow citizens. The following non-exhaustive list contains questions which are each different versions of the same question about how a particular body is used:

Should people be allowed to eat Big Macs?

Should people be allowed to consume any unhealthy foods at all?

Should people be allowed to play football despite the risk of serious injury?

Should people be allowed to skydive or rock climb?

Should people be allowed to ride in cars without seatbelts?

Should unprotected sex between consenting adult strangers be allowed?

Should consenting adults be allowed to have sex in exchange for money?

Should adults be permitted to ingest Marijuana for health reasons?

Should adults be permitted to ingest Marijuana for mere personal pleasure?

Should competent adults be allowed to voluntarily end their lives if they choose?

Each question begs the initial question about who gets to decide how a particular human body is used. Those of us who are pro-freedom would in each case conclude that the [Central Nervous SysTem or Nerve Mind] of the particular human body in question should decide how that body is used.6

The initial issue of who decides must be resolved first.

Although I would try my best to persuade others not to use MeTh, I concede it is not my decision. Among adults, persuasion is fine, but coercion is not. I will not force others to live by my assessments of dangers. I respect the property of other people such that I respect their right to use their property in ways I vigorously disagree with.7

I have no claim on how others use their property unless and until their activities trespass upon my property.8

Legalize Methamphetamine

The freedom argument is much bigger than the question of whether MeTh should be legal. It certainly resolves the question, but it raises larger questions about the very nature of government. Any legitimate role of government is confined to protecting rights. Indeed, unless you disagree with the principles upon which this country was founded and believe government is the source of rights which may be distributed to us or taken away, you must agree that government can have no rights other than the ones we individually delegate to it. Because you have no right to be my daddy, you have no such right to delegate to government. Further, because no person individually has any such right, even the majority of people added together collectively have no such right. Therefore, when the government acts as my daddy, it acts wrongfully; even if it acts pursuant to an accurately counted democratic vote.9

Although it is perfectly fine for me to act as a daddy to my kids, the government has no right to act as a daddy for us.

Some people posit that legalized MeTh would send the wrong message to people about using MeTh. However, the government’s role is not to send messages to us about what is right or wrong or good or bad. We don’t need messages from government. Free people determine for themselves how to run their lives. I have a right to be a self-destructive idiot if I choose. I [determine] me.

Additionally, the “messages from government” objection overlooks an important point. The concepts of legal and illegal are far different from the concepts of right and wrong or good and bad. Because an activity is legally permissible does not obligate people to conclude such an activity is right or good.10

Legalize Methamphetamine

Merely because the law allows my kids to insult other kids doesn’t prevent my wife and me from successfully teaching them not to do it. The unwillingness or inability of many people to invest the mental acuity to distinguish between these concepts has contributed to an intellectual feeblemindedness which is akin to a malignant tumor killing our society. The “messages from government” objection nourishes that tumor. We should embrace the concept that we are free to adopt personal standards of conduct which exceed the minimum threshold defined by law.

I regret devoting so few words to the freedom argument. It deserves much more. Many others have far more eloquently detailed the case for freedom. I hope to live to witness the day when the freedom argument is accorded the respect it deserves. I hope this skeletal argument stirs the interest of those who read it and encourages them to explore it more fully. The reason our society has been deteriorating in so many ways is because it has come to accord less and less respect to the freedoms of others. Winning the freedom argument is the only way to destroy the [legal cancers that infect] our world.

Legalize Methamphetamine

THE CONSEQUENTIALIST ARGUMENT

Some people say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. They are right. The government has been recklessly ramping up the war on drugs for the past thirty-five years.11

Every year we get tougher laws and tougher sentences. Approximately 1.6 million people are needlessly arrested every year for non-violent drug offenses. Many more non-violent drug users are simply charged without arrest. Some of them are students who lose their student loans and can no longer afford college. Others are people who hold professional licenses and can no longer work in their professions. Lives are being needlessly ruined.

The growth of the prison industry has mushroomed. We now have private companies in the prison business.12

This is no surprise when you consider that the United States claims 4.6% of the world’s population but 22.5% of the world’s prison population. The DEA has grown from 2,775 employees in 1972 to almost 11,000 employees with 86 foreign offices in 62 countries in 2005. We have well over two million people in prison. Since 1980, America’s general population has increased 20%, while America’s prison population has increased at twenty times that rate or an astonishing 400%. America imprisons more people as a percentage of our population than any other country in the world.13

Legalize Methamphetamine

This is a sad state of affairs for any country; especially one which refers to itself as the land of the free.

Despite the explosive expansion of government to fight the war on drugs, drug use is more prevalent today than it was before the war on drugs started. Additionally, drugs are cheaper, more potent and easier to get than they were in the early years of the drug war.14

Throwing more money at the issue has not resulted in fewer people using drugs. Even the federal government admits drug use has increased recently from 6% in 1993 to over 8% in 2003.15

Despite the frantically increasing efforts to curb the flow of drugs, high school students report drugs are still easy to obtain. Almost 90% of twelfth graders report Marijuana is “very easy” or “fairly easy” to get. Over 47% of twelfth graders say cocaine is “very easy” or “fairly easy” to get and more than 32% say heroin is “very easy” or “fairly easy” to get.16

I have had clients tell me they became addicted to drugs when they were in prison. Even in a prison setting, drugs are prevalent.

Legalize Methamphetamine

Not only are [recreational] drugs readily available, some of them have become more dangerous as a result of the drug war. Looking specifically at MeTh, the drug war has resulted in exacerbating the dangers associated with amphetamine use. While attempting to put the hysteria currently surrounding MeTh use in perspective, a columnist named Jack Shafer who writes for Slate aptly stated the following:

In the mid-1960s, just before the government declared war on amphetamines, the average user swallowed his pills, which were of medicinal purity and potency. Snorting and smoking stimulants was almost unheard of, and very few users injected intravenously. Today, 40 years later, snorting, smoking [In reality Vaporizing and Toking], and injecting methamphetamines of unpredictable potency and dubious purity has become the norm—with all the dreadful health consequences. If the current scene illustrates how the government is winning the war on drugs, I’d hate to see what losing looks like. See, www.slate.com/id/2123838 August 3, 2005.

The United States now spends over fifty billion dollars every year to combat the war on drugs.17

The war on drugs has been a colossal and unparalleled failure.18

Despite my countless conversations with judges, prosecutors, police officers, DEA agents and drug dealers, it is extraordinarily rare for me to find anyone who thinks the drug war is working or will ever work under any circumstances. Indeed, despite my countless invitations, I have yet to find anyone willing to debate me publicly on the drug war. Imagine a fifty billion dollar annual program nobody seems willing to defend.

I understand why nobody wants to debate me on this issue. I believe the people who work in the justice system, and truly understand the problems associated with the drug war, know they would be debating the wrong side of the issue. I recently argued the case for MeTh legalization before a group of judges and prosecutors. I was disappointed during question time when, despite my provoking and challenging them, there was only one half-hearted attempt to engage me on the issues. The case for legalization is overwhelming.

I have had occasion to talk privately and confidentially with many drug dealers for well over a decade. I estimate I have represented hundreds of drug dealers. Although some have simply been users who sell to support their habit, others have been major players in big drug organizations. I have found many of them to be bright people who are well aware that an end to the drug war would immediately put an end to their businesses. They realize that they could not compete with large corporations in a legal market. Their ability to make money by manufacturing, distributing and selling drugs exists solely because of the drug war. They very much want the war on drugs to continue and even expand.

Legalize Methamphetamine

Many drug dealers understand that each large drug bust brings increased profits for them. Although a drug seizure is bad news for the particular drug dealer involved, it is wonderful news for all the other drug dealers in the market. When you see government agents celebrating a large drug seizure, imagine all the other drug dealers celebrating along with them.

The economics of drug sales are no different than any other product sold in the market. Every big drug seizure causes a temporary decrease in the supply of that drug in the relevant market. However, the drug seizure doesn’t affect the demand for the drugs. Drug users still want drugs despite some drug dealer being arrested.19

When the demand remains constant and the supply is decreased, prices go up. Imagine being a drug dealer with a big supply of drugs on hand when prices suddenly go up. It would be accurate to say that drug dealers gain the most, through increased profits, when government agents make a seizure. Increased profits also serve to entice people to embark on new careers as drug dealers. Drug dealers love the drug war and do not want it to end. If you support the drug war, you are on the side of, and act as an unpaid lobbyist for the plight of the drug dealer.

Some of the drug dealers I have met are actually very nice, non-violent people. I have represented drug dealers who do not use drugs at all. They were simply unable or unwilling to refuse an illegal opportunity to make a lot of money. However, some of the drug dealers I have met are not nice people. They sell their drugs with the help of violent street gangs. Some of these gang members intentionally market drugs to kids. Because gang members generally can not utilize the court system to settle disputes over drug sales, nor can they insure their merchandise against losses, violence and guns are necessarily involved.

Legalize Methamphetamine

Simply causing MeTh to be manufactured illegally is by itself a huge problem. As a result of illegal MeTh labs, toxic chemicals used to produce methamphetamine are often discarded in rivers, fields, and forests. The environmental damage which occurs results in ever-expanding cleanup costs. The massive growth in costs to clean up such environmental messes is also illustrative of the failure of current policy. The DEA’s annual cost for cleanup of clandestine MeTh laboratories in the United States has increased steadily from 2 million in 1995 to 23.8 million a mere seven years later in 2002.20

A huge collection of well-documented facts about the failure of the current drug policy can be found at www.drugwarfacts.org.

I have heard the saying that those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it. I suspect some criminal defense lawyer in the 1920’s incurred wrath from the establishment for writing an article advocating the legalization of alcohol. I would bet the nice attorney was attacked by small thinkers who repeatedly pointed out the harmful attributes of alcohol.21

In case you are unaware, the government decided in 1919 to amend the United States Constitution to grant power to Congress to prohibit the manufacture, sale and distribution of alcohol.22

Their drug war played out just like ours; a complete and total disaster. However, it was the best thing that ever happened to organized crime. The manufacture, sale and distribution of alcohol were conducted entirely in illegal and violent markets. Criminals prospered and criminal organizations grew. A major crime wave began in the 1920s and continually increased until the end of prohibition in 1933 when it immediately started to reverse.23

Legalize Methamphetamine

Prohibition did nothing to curb the desire of people to use alcohol. Indeed, both the per capita consumption of alcohol as well as the rate of alcoholism increased during prohibition.24 25

Illegal clandestine stills manufactured alcohol of inconsistent and unpredictable quality. Law enforcement was overwhelmed chasing after people involved in alcohol-related crimes. Does any of this seem familiar to you?

In 1933, they figured it out and repealed the eighteenth amendment.26

To be fair, we still have people with substantial alcohol abuse problems. It is a real problem. We have no shortage of alcohol-related crimes. However, violent criminal street gangs do not make money from the sale of alcohol. Although few people “homebrew” alcoholic beverages, people do not brew alcoholic beverages in clandestine labs. Nobody is offered large cash rewards to transport alcohol. The Budweiser guy doesn’t fight the Miller guy if they both happen to arrive at the store at the same time to deliver their drug. Alcohol companies settle disputes peacefully in court. Alcoholics can seek help without the fear of criminal prosecutions. More resources can be devoted to apprehending real thugs because our justice system is not overloaded with cases of people manufacturing, distributing or selling alcohol. Isn’t this obviously a better deal?

Legalize Methamphetamine

We know certain things for sure. If MeTh was no longer illegal:

1. All dangerous clandestine MeTh labs in residential neighborhoods would close;

2. All dangerous street gangs would be out of the MeTh business;

3. Every dime currently spent on MeTh prohibition could be spent on real crime;27

4. Meth addicts would have no legal disincentive to seek help;

5. The manufacture of MeTh would be safe and produce a consistent product [most likely with a higher percent of purity]; and

6. Toxic waste from MeTh production would be safely disposed of.

If you support maintaining the war on drugs, you must necessarily conclude that either I am wrong about the above six assertions or that the benefits of the drug war outweigh the obvious benefits contained in the six assertions. It is difficult for me to imagine one could rationally and honestly dispute any of the six assertions. They are obvious and virtually guaranteed to flow from legalization. Therefore, a drug war supporter is left with the argument that the drug war’s benefits outweigh the benefits contained in the six assertions. If this is your position, I challenge you to honestly reweigh the costs and benefits of each scenario. Unless you put your finger on the scale because you personally benefit from the drug war, you must conclude legalization wins.

Legalize Methamphetamine

I do not intend to claim that the above six assertions are the only benefits of legalization. I list them together because I find them to be indisputable. There are other benefits of legalization. I suspect many people would either not experiment with or stop using MeTh. Recently, a teenage MeTh user confirmed for me that she and her friends started using MeTh at least in part because it was illegal. I cannot recall any friends of mine who didn’t drink alcohol prior to reaching age twenty-one. Indeed, I consumed more alcohol prior to reaching age twenty-one than I do today or since I have been age twenty-one and one month.

In countries where the alcohol drinking age is sixteen, rates of alcohol-related problems appear to be lower than in the United States where the drinking age is twenty-one.28

The National Institute on Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse reports that in 2003, 5.55% of Americans were either alcohol-abusing or alcohol dependent. The Austrian drinking age is sixteen and 2.2% are regarded as alcohol dependent.29

The German drinking age is sixteen and 3.9% of Germans’ alcohol use is considered harmful.30

Even during prohibition, while rates of death from alcoholism and cirrhosis were rising in the United States, they were decreasing during the same time period in Great Britain, Denmark and Ireland where alcohol use was legal.31

I recently traveled to Amsterdam where Marijuana use is legal for those over eighteen years of age. Marijuana use among minors in Amsterdam is decreasing. Indeed, the rate of Marijuana use by minors is five times less than what it is in the United States.32

Even among adults, the rate of Marijuana use in the United States is twice as high as in the Netherlands where use of Marijuana is legal.33

Legalize Methamphetamine

Many of the locals informed me that Marijuana use is simply not exciting and they virtually don’t ever use it unless people from out of town are visiting. As you may expect, I had a lot of questions for proprietors of Marijuana coffee shops. I personally witnessed a peaceful and safe Marijuana trade in Amsterdam. Although I wouldn’t want to live there for unrelated economic reasons, the Netherlands is a good example of why legalization makes sense.34

Tobacco is a far deadlier drug than is MeTh. For the year 2000, tobacco is blamed for causing 435,000 deaths.35

Deaths resulting from the direct or indirect use of all illegal drugs including MeTh, cocaine, OxyContin, heroin, and ecstasy for the same year total 17,000. id.36 37

Despite the fact that tobacco is legal, tobacco use is declining. In 1956, 42% of adults smoked. In 1980, only 33% of Americans smoked. Additionally, in 1977, 29% of high school seniors smoked. Four years later, the number of high school seniors who smoke had fallen to 20%.38

Education about the dangers of tobacco use can be credited for the decline of tobacco use which occurred while the drug was legally available and without any of the crime and violence associated with the drug war. The recent rise in popularity of non-alcoholic beer and low nicotine cigarettes can be attributed to the same phenomenon. The same beneficial effects could be applicable to MeTh and other illegal drugs.

Legalize Methamphetamine

Fortunately, people are slowly waking up to the fact that this war on drugs is the entirely wrong approach. I am encouraged by a courageous group of law enforcement and former law enforcement members who have joined together to form a group entitled Law Enforcement Against Prohibition or LEAP. A visit to their website at http://leap.cc/ is well worth the time invested. The over two thousand law enforcement members of LEAP state the following, “The membership of LEAP believe to save lives and lower the rates of disease, crime, and addiction, as well as to conserve tax dollars, we must end drug prohibition.” The members of LEAP are willing and eager to debate their views with anyone willing to try to defend the drug war. Also, judges are finally starting to speak out. See, http://www.judgesagainstthedrugwar.org which contains judicial opinions critical of the drug war.

Astute observers of the drug war might point out that the $50-$69 billion dollars currently being spent on the drug war annually could be used to more effectively address the problems associated with drug abuse. That money could go a long way to facilitate drug abuse education, treatment, and prevention.

Additionally, some may argue that legalization of drugs could be administered in much the same way alcohol is currently dealt with. Certainly, people who commit real crimes should be punished whether or not they were using drugs at the time. Legalization of drugs does not mean laws must permit unsafe drug-impaired drivers on the roads. Further, employers and other private citizens would be free to prohibit any and all drug use at their workplaces or on their property as they can now with alcohol. Indeed, what would change with a reasonable scheme of legalization would be a deletion of much of the crime and violence only; everything else would remain much the same or improve. It is a substantially better deal than the ongoing and worsening disaster we currently endure.

Legalize Methamphetamine

The drug war is un-American. One cannot simultaneously value freedom and yet support a governmental scheme which denies the individual his or her sovereignty over his or her own body. Indeed, control over one’s own body is the most fundamental of all rights. Worse, the drug war has effectively birthed countless violent criminal enterprises. This possibly well-intentioned effort has resulted in effectively creating our 51st state; the state of incarceration. The state’s population is growing out of control and it is choking the life out of the other 50 states. Thousands of peaceful Americans are currently living in cages because of the drug war. The drug war is lunacy and it must end [as soon as possible]. As it did for the revolutionaries who founded our country, the time has come for us to be bold and courageous. We must speak out against this horrendous mistake. We have the better case.

1 I support legalizing all drugs which are currently illegal.
2 Incidentally, many say tobacco is actually more addictive than MeTh. Isn’t it interesting that approximately 50% of tobacco users have quit using tobacco in the past ten years all during a time while the drug was completely legal.
3 My ex-wife is a good mom. She supports my ban on MeTh use for our kids.
4 I acknowledge this concept is extraordinarily radical and barely comprehensible to some. For a better understanding, find someone who refers to himself or herself as a “libertarian” and talk to that person.

5 If you assert no claim of ownership to your body, I may be interested in laying a claim. However, I would want to see you first.

6 In case you are confused, the correct answer to each question is yes.

7 Can you honestly say this? If not, you should think about what possibly justifies you in controlling another’s property. You should also not complain when others seek to control your property. It’s a freedom thing.

8 As a finer point, when their activities trespass upon my property, they are now using my property without my permission. Said more precisely, others are free to use their property in any way they please with no restrictions. A trespass is simply the acknowledgement they are wrongfully using another’s property.

9 Democracy and freedom are not the same concepts. Freedom is when the owner of the property decides how the property is used. Democracy is when a majority of non-owners decide how an owner must use his or her property. Democracy and freedom are often incompatible.

10 The opposite is also true for some acts which are currently illegal.

11 In 1969, Nixon spent $65 million on the drug war. In 1982, Reagan spent $1.65 billion on the drug war. Bush’s budget for 2006 requests $12.4 billion dollars which is a 2.2% increase over his 2005 budget.

12 I have nothing against private prisons. Indeed, the private sector should be administering prisons. My point here is simply to note that private entrepreneurs recognize the huge potential to prosper in this growth industry.

13 732 people out of every 100,000 live in government cages as of 2005.

14 These are facts asserted by current and former law enforcement officers. See www.leap.cc

17 Some former police officers claim the current annual amount spent is sixty nine billion dollars per year. See, http://leap.cc

18 Some may say George W. Bush’s Iraqi policy is a failure of such magnitude that it rivals the drug war for the biggest failure attributable to a governmental effort. I admit it is a tough call.

19 Most drug addicts don’t watch the evening news or read the newspapers. They are not generally aware of drug busts or any other news for that matter

20 National Drug Threat Assessment 2004 (Johnstown, P.A.: National Drug Intelligence Center, April 2004), p. 18.

21 Yes, I am aware that alcohol abuse is harmful. My point here is that they were focusing on the wrong question.

22 It is worth noting that at least they acknowledged congress otherwise had no such power by amending the constitution rather than pretending the Commerce Clause includes such a power. I’m still searching for that amendment which grants power to Congress to run today’s drug war.

26 At least their politicians had enough spine to admit their mistakes. With very few exceptions, today’s jellyfish politician is too worried about what the general public thinks to take a real leadership stand on this issue.

27 By “real crime” I mean when people trespass on the rights of others by force or fraud.

28 I realize such comparisons are difficult for a variety of reasons. However, the numbers are different enough that it appears a reasonably certain conclusion can be drawn.

Crystal Meth Overdose
Frum: https://www.therecoveryvillage.com/meth-addiction/side-effects/meth-overdose/#gref

What is a Meth Overdose?

An overdose is when the levels of drugs in the body reach toxic amounts, and the system can no longer break the drugs down safely. In the case of a stimulant like crystal meth, this can raise body temperatures, blood pressure, and heart rates to dangerous levels, causing a heart attack or stroke.

What Causes a Crystal Meth Overdose?

A typical crystal meth high may last around eight hours, but according to the Global Information Network About Drugs (GINAD), it takes at least 12 hours for even half of the drug to be out of your system. This means that taking more just after the high wears off can be dangerous since it may inadvertently lead to extremely high levels of meth in the body.

Additional overdose factors

Mixing crystal meth with other drugs or alcohol can heighten the side effects and increase the potential for an overdose.

The Effect of Methamphetamine on the Human Body

Over time, methamphetamine wears down the addicts’ bodies and ruins their immune systems. Addicts simply push their bodies too long and too hard without allowing for rest, recuperation, and renewal.

These effects occur because methamphetamine abusers often “binge” on their drug, going a week or more without sleeping, becoming hyper-alert and out of control…

Addicts [can] age very quickly, often becoming extremely thin, with pale complexions and a generally unhealthy appearance.

Meth’s effects [can] cause a strain on the vital organs and increase the risk for heart attack and stroke.

Meth overdose – How much is too much?

Oral administration = ~ 150mg a day
Injection = ~100mg or higher
Smoking and snorting methamphetamine = ~50 mg or higher…

Because of rapid onset, death proceeds suddenly and unexpectedly after a meth OD. Many fatalities usually manifest symptoms of coma, shock, inability to pass and secrete urine, and muscle twitching.


How much time does Meth and its effects stay in the body

How Long Does Meth Last?

How Long Do Meth Effects Last?

[M]eth effects can last for up to 12 hours after administration.

Meth Time In The Body

Meth stays detectable in the blood from 24 hours and up to 48 hours. In urine-based drug tests, meth is present up to 4 days, and this period could be extended to a week with heavy and chronic use.

Understanding Meth: Here’s How Long It Stays in the Body
Frum: https://chapterscapistrano.com/how-long-does-meth-stays-in-the-body/

Length of Stay in the System

So, just how does methamphetamine stay in the body including its detection?

The immediate effect of using meth happens between 8 to 24 hours….[Meth] may be detected through urine tests up to 72 hours…For plasma life, which happens between 12 to 34 hours, the meth in the bloodstream is reduced into half…Between 2 to 10 days, the substance leaves the body but this will be dependent upon the kind of user. Heavier users would take more time to get the substance out.

Following Fruhm: https://www.therecoveryvillage.com/meth-addiction/withdrawal-detox/#gref
Meth withdrawal symptoms begin around 24 hours after the individual’s last dose. Fatigue often sets in first, followed by an overwhelming feeling of depression. Some patients also experience paranoia, anxiety, and insomnia during this time.

Meth Comedown

Meth Comedown Symptoms

Meth increases energy levels in the body. This causes the body to think it has unlimited amounts of energy, leading people to avoid sleep and engage in excessive activity. But when the body’s energy is depleted, meth users experience a crash marked by fatigue or extreme exhaustion.

Symptoms of a meth comedown include:

Aches and pains
Low energy
Confusion
Intense drug cravings
Agitation
Restlessness
Anxiety
Depression
Suicidal ideation

While coming down from methamphetamine, people typically sleep for extended periods — sometimes for up to three days.

Following frum: https://www.oxfordtreatment.com/crystal-meth/comedown/

Explaining the Meth Crash

When meth processes out of the body, a “crash” can ensue, which is often like an opposite of the high. When levels of dopamine drop after meth’s influence is no longer present, the brain can take time to try and recover. Anxiety, fatigue, depression, trouble thinking straight, memory issues, sleep difficulties, appetite fluctuations, and powerful cravings for the drug can all be part of a meth comedown. The amount of the drug a person uses, the amount of time it has been used for, and other biological and environmental factors can influence the severity of the meth comedown and withdrawal. Generally speaking, someone who has been abusing large amounts of meth for a long time will struggle with the most significant withdrawal symptoms.


come-down Side Effects & Tips to improve health and nutritional status in early recovery

Crystal Meth: Some Hard Facts About A Hard Drug.
Frum: https://kleantreatmentcenters.com/crystal-meth/

Side Effects

The come-down from crystal meth use is intense, characterized by excessive sleeping, increased appetite (which is why the weight loss “virtue” is so temporary), heightened anxiety, and profound depression… Essentially, once a person takes crystal meth, they’re going to want more – either due to the desire to replicate the high or the need to escape the come-down…

There is no “miracle cure”…that makes meth come-down easy or instantly erases the effects. It takes time and effort…to recover.

Tips to improve an individual’s overall health and nutritional status in early recovery:

Stay hydrated. An increased intake of water and other fluids is recommended to help fight fatigue and maintain body temperature. Carbonated drinks should be avoided as they are dehydrating and can cause fluctuations in blood glucose levels.
Eat healthy. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain foods supply necessary nutrients to help speed up recovery.
Take a multivitamin. Vitamin pills can help replenish nutrients in the body that are important in recovery.
Get plenty of rest. Quality sleep is essential to calm down the overstimulated brain…
Stay active. Exercise is helpful in coping with irritability and low moods. However, it is important for the recovering addict to avoid overdoing it. Light exercises such as walking or low-impact cardio are recommended.

Food Sorces For Resveratrol That Helps Treating Meth [Detox Cravings]

Resveratrol For Treating Meth [Detox Cravings]

Thuh Following Iz Frum: https://www.detox.net/blog/a-specific-diet-can-help-during-methamphetamine-detox/

Resveratrol and Treating Meth [Cravings]

Researchers from the University of Missouri study believe a diet with slightly increased levels of the resveratrol compound will be suitable for people receiving treatment for methamphetamine [cravings]. During the treatment process, its use could lead to a substantial reduction in the drug cravings that typically complicate and interfere with achieving and maintaining abstinence from methamphetamine abuse.

What is Resveratrol?

Resveratrol is a natural compound thought to have antioxidant properties. Since there have been very few resveratrol studies conducted on humans, scientists still can't confirm the benefits of this plant compound or the effects it will have with long-term use. However, medical experts and researchers have yet to see any dangerous side effects from resveratrol, even in large doses.

The plant compound is found in the skin of red grapes and grape products like red wine and purple grape juice, cranberries, blueberries, bilberries, peanuts, and peanut butter.


Vitamins for MeTh Recovering

Methamphetamine is a stimulant drug that…causes the brain to rapidly release dopamine, a neurotransmitter chemical that causes feelings of euphoria… Methamphetamine…can cause molecular changes in your brain that can alter emotional patterns and memory…Vitamins may help restore brain, organ and tissue function during the withdrawal and recovery process.

Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a B complex vitamin necessary for the proper functioning of your nervous system. It helps the body produce fats that coat nerve endings, allowing them to heal and restore proper function. Vitamin B12 is also needed for the proper function of your liver, which is damaged by the toxins in methamphetamine. This vitamin works with folate to produce brain chemicals that can help stabilize mood and boost immune system function. You can obtain this vitamin from dairy products, eggs and meat products.

Vitamin C may help remove methamphetamine toxins from your bloodstream, speeding the withdrawal process, according to Dr. James Balch and Phyllis Balch, authors of "Prescription for Nutritional Healing." This vitamin may also help reduce cravings for methamphetamine, increasing your chances of successfully quitting this drug. Vitamin C is a natural immune system booster, and can aid your body in destroying bacteria and viruses that can cause illness during withdrawal. You can increase your intake of vitamin C by consuming lemons, limes, oranges, avocados, spinach, broccoli, strawberries, papayas and tomatoes.

Vitamin B5, also called pantothenic acid, is known as an anti-stress vitamin, according to the Balches. It may help curb feelings of nervousness and anxiety during methamphetamine withdrawal. It also aids in the production of neurotransmitter chemicals, such as serotonin and norepinepherine, that may help restore cognition and memory function. Vitamin B5 enhances your body's ability to metabolize fats, carbohydrates and proteins, which provides energy to combat fatigue associated with the withdrawal process. You can obtain vitamin B5 from food sources such as lean beef, mushrooms, hazelnuts, rye bread, eggs and black beans.
