Totally destroying the brain of the little ones.
Are children in the United States being over-medicated? According to some recent statistics, it surely looks that way. Over a million children six years of age or under are prescribed a psychiatric medication. Overall, more than eight million kids in America are on some sort of psychotropic drug — and the medical establishment is hardly batting an eye.
In fact, now that the mass medication of American children has started to gain traction in the media, so-called researchers from Columbia University Medical Center published a study claiming that not enough children are on drugs. Sure, that’s the problem — not the fact that children are blindly being given a dose of pharmaceuticals, instead of being given other options.
Ibogaine is a natural hallucinogen that has been shown to immediately stop all drug cravings for heroin and other barbiturates as well as alcohol cravings in alcoholics. It improves an addict’s chances of staying clean for life. Research began in the early 60s into Ibogaine’s potential use as a rehabilitation therapy for addicts but was abandoned after fears were raised over the safety of the drug. The FDA banned Ibogaine in 1967 due to its hallucinogenic properties. In 1995, researchers at the University of Miami managed to get permission from the FDA to study Ibogaine’s effects on addicts but the funding eventually fell through. Big Pharma, and specifically the manufacturers of Methadone are thought to have had a hand in ensuring Ibogaine remains illegal so as to ensure their drug remains the number one treatment for heroin addiction.
Advocates of Ibogaine point out that far fewer side effects have been linked to the hallucinogen than to other rehabilitative drugs such as Methadone. Current treatments for substance addiction are largely ineffective and only one new drug known as Buprenorphine has been developed in the last two decades to treat opiate addiction. Many patients often find themselves becoming addicted to the substitute drug during treatment. Ibogaine requires that the patient take only one dose before cravings begin to subside, and treatment is far less expensive than the traditional options. Ibogaine is available in other countries such as the Netherlands, Norway, UK, Mexico, Canada and South Africa.
History of Ibogaine
HUNDREDS of “nightmare bacteria” have been discovered in the US after an unprecedented nationwide hunt — and doctors say there is likely more.
That’s more than they had expected to find, and the true number is probably higher because the effort involved only certain labs in each state, officials say.
…local law enforcement agencies discovered that San José del Cabo resident Francisco Quiroz-Zamora, 41, known as “Gordo,” or “Fatso,” was the primary source of large fentanyl shipments to the New York City region.

There’s a lot of cocaine and heroin in the world, and there’s a pretty good chance you’ve got a tiny bit of it on your body right now — even if you’ve never knowingly touched the stuff.
That’s the conclusion of a new paper published in the journal Clinical Chemistry today (March 22), which found that 13 percent of drug-free study participants had traces of the drugs on their fingertips. The participants, residents of the United Kingdom tested at the University of Surrey, didn’t have enough heroin or cocaine on their fingers for it to be visible, and certainly not enough to get them (or anyone) high. But they did have enough cocaine or heroin on their hands to trip very sensitive instruments called mass spectrometers.

A New York Police Department officer is now in jail after she was caught running a massive cross-country heroin trafficking ring, all while using her badge as a cover to keep police away from the operations.
The Drug Enforcement Administration began investigating NYPD Officer Yessenia Jimenez, 31, in January after they found the phone number of her boyfriend, Luis Soto, 33, on the cell phone of a narcotics trafficking suspect.
The investigation concluded that Jimenez and Soto were conducting a heroin trafficking operation that stemmed Mexico to New York. The New York Daily News reported that the pair was arrested this week after they made a trip to Massachusetts to meet with a heroin trafficker.
DEA, NYPD, and state police task force officers confronted Soto around 2 a.m. on Tuesday after he returned from the trip and was seen unloading bags from the trunk of his car, outside of the couple’s apartment building in the Soundview neighborhood in Bronx, New York.
In 2010, it was found that roughly 100,000 Americans die each year from prescription drugs alone. When it comes to opioids, the number of deaths is in the tens of thousands while a quarter of patients who were given a short-term prescription transitioned to long-term use.
Now, according to a recent Harvard University analysis, doctors who prescribe these pain-killers are being paid huge sums of money from their manufacturers.
The research, which was conducted by Harvard scientists and CNN, discovered that in 2014-2015 thousands of doctors were paid over $25,000 from opioid manufacturers and hundreds more were rewarded with six-figure sums. Also, the more opioids that were prescribed, the larger the reward.
