The heroin made from the record-breaking poppy crops cultivated under the protection of the War on Terror military forces in Afghanistan is coming straight to the heroin addicts in British Columbia [BC], Canada.
For several years now, I have been declared by others to be "on the front lines of the conspiracy". Its a sexy title indeed, but now I see that its more true now that ever.
Many people are prescribed morphine for my chronic pain by doctors in BC. These doctors are under heavy authority pressure, and even punishment, if they hand out too much, or even enough. Regular increases - usually every 6 mos., have been the norm for morphine prescriptions for about 100 years, as tolerance to this drug builds up. That changed recently, in just the past few years, with pharmaceutical corporate influence asking doctors to prescribe anti-depressants and other "new drugs" as adjunct therapy to morphine instead of giving increases.
The result is
1]Better profits for pharm corps;
2]damaged livers, suicides, mental confusion and emotional imbalance for the patients who follow doctors orders and take the adjunct therapy drugs. They are also not recieving sufficient pain control due to tolerance buildup, but the other drugs are clouding their brains so that they do not rage about it, like a wet blanket smothering their thoughts and putting them to sleep emotionally.
Now, we have the Afghan heroin flooding into BC, and that has lowered the prices for heroin. Heroin is a good substitute for morphine, some like it much better than their presription morphine. Most addicts would choose heroin over morphine.
I have often proposed that Canadian troops bring the poppy crops home to Canada for distribution thru the Harm Reduction networks here. Vancouver Mayors have suggested giving drugs to addicts as a way to lower the drug crime there.
The War on Drugs, prohibition itself, is what causes prices to be so hig in the first place, and that goes down the line to where prohibition is what brings the high profits to organised crime, and money for the Taliban to fight our troops in Afghanistan.
repeat: "and money for the Taliban to fight our troops in Afghanistan" !!!!
Do you see the weirdness here? prohibition is paying for the weapons that kill our troops, and continue their terrorist operations.
Those Afghan poppy farmers would rather get paid less money if it came from legitimate sources like the Canadian government or military, rather than be involved with criminals and Taliban, who have turned about face and now encourage the poppy farmers.
Bringing home the Afghan poppies would reduce drug crime here, and it would reduce the medical establishment's monopoly and authority over those in pain and those who are addicted to opiates, allowing them to live better.
It would also reduce funding to organised crime and other local criminals, as well as to the Taliban, essentially killing two birds with one stoner. And thats no joke.
