6 Brave Researchers Busting the Myths Behind Everything We Think We Know About Drugs

daily alternative | alternative news - 6 Brave Researchers Busting the Myths Behind Everything We Think We Know About Drugs

To get the public on board with the violent, expensive and ultimately unsuccessful war on drugs, the government has had to spin some pretty elaborate stories about drugs and their users. The goal has been to strike fear into people about the looming dangers in order to justify militarizing against them.

However, thanks to the work of determined researchers who refused to accept these unfounded claims, most of the lies surrounding drugs have been debunked. In recent years the opinion of the American people has shifted to support a public health oriented outlook on drugs. The majority of Americans think cannabis should be regulated like alcohol, and most American medical doctors think medical marijuana should be legal. People everywhere are questioning the validity of sending people to jail for addictions that should be treated like health issues, and many world leaders and top economists now agree that the drug war has been a massive waste of resources and humanitarian disaster.

Behind these shifts in public opinion is the work of a few courageous researchers who study Schedule I, illegal drugs ranging from crack and meth to psychedelics and cannabis despite very real professional stigmas still associated with working with illegal drugs. They’ve exposed a variety of truths about these substances that have  been skewed and hidden for decades.

Follow the link below for six researchers who are changing the way people think about drugs and addiction:

Kuwait to Pass Law to “DNA Tag” Everyone Like Cattle, Including All Tourists

In the first law of its kind anywhere in the world, Kuwait has decided it will not only “DNA tag” everyone presently in the country as part of a new “integrated security database,” but all tourists will be required to submit a DNA test before they can even enter the country.

Facilities for blood and saliva collection will be set up at the Kuwait International Airport, and there will be “consequences of rejecting” these procedures which the Kuwaiti government says it is putting in place in order to track everyone just in case someone commits a crime.

While it sounds like an Orwellian nightmare, the reality is this is slowly creeping up on us everywhere. Central banks are going to start requiring biometrics for identification, for your security they say. Japan has already announced that all tourists will be required to use their fingerprints as currency while in the country. India has forced biometric IDs on its entire population. In fact, the United Nations is pushing for universal biometric ID cards for every single man, woman, and child on the planet by 2030.
