This is lifted straight from a thread I was involved in on the Thom Hartmann Bloggers group and is merely a direct reflection of my views and feelings on this subject, without any kind of editing or embellishment, as I could not type the words out fast enough.
Obviously there are many more aspects to this hideous leviathan of prejudice, corporate and social hypocrisy and corruption than are covered in this small piece and to see the full extent of my take on Drugs and their moral implications might I humbly suggest a further piece, namely...:
This is the 21st Century...time to put away false notions and indocrination and find your own Truth rather than allow some Corporate infested status-quo Mass Media to dictate how one should live one's life and how we should judge others.
Mindless conformist platitudes about drugs are so 'last century' and are still echoes of that glittering Hollywood vulgarity and offense to common sense namely; Ronald Reagan and his NeoCon cronies and their war on drugs and on everything else thats not 'Corporate approved' behavior and attitudes.
"Say No to Drugs" ~ The complete absurdity and blatant hypocrisy of this platitude for example, which is the main message of the Mass Media...your ubiquitous mouthpiece for Spin, Lies and Mind-control.
Meanwhile this message is brought to you tonight by : "Prozac Palliatives"
"Do you feel depressed, or suffer from low energy? Feel out of sorts, can't seem to get a girlfriend or function socially?
Why not try our new range of blister pack anti-depressants?
In the new handy carrying case...with our New targetted SSRI strategy you can be sure that there is a Pill to meet your needs!!!"
Our Society is so riddled with chemicals and pharmacy drugs its a joke!
And then we turn and judge someone for using them in their own environs.
And then we Feature massive ads for some Alcoholic beverage or Vodka smoothie or whatever plastered all over the Media....HAh HAH HAH.
Seriously, sometimes I feel like I'm talking to children who need to learn to think objectively all over again...
And this entire Mass Media campaign...the 'War on Drugs'...
Why does it take the rest of Society so long to understand the basics?
Because we have all been propagandized and lied to...
ADHD? Sure...our motto is : "We can Fix You!" and : "There's a Pill for That!!!"
How many is it?
What are the Stats now on how many school kids pack Ritalin, a form of Speed in their lunch-boxes before they head off for school?
Mum kisses them goodbye with a stern reminder:
"And don't forget to take your medicine on time"...
ADHD...It is not possible for a population to develop this disease in such ridiculously high numbers..the figures are clearly showing us that something is wrong with the diagnosis...the clip above, by Gabor Mate on DemocracyNow is from probably the foremost expert on the subject today...
Don't believe me...listen to the experts.
These were the words of Leon Eisenberg, the “scientific father of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder),” in his last interview he gave before his death at age 87 in 2009.

(This true-life confession from the discoverer of ADHD, came out ironically 2 days after I wrote this piece.)
As if our Brain circuitry were just some polluted chemical soup, and we can just throw a splash of this into the mix...that'll fix your Life for sure...
Because Bayer and Glaxco-klein say so!
If any of my friends take pills of almost any kind with rare exceptions, I tell them to Stop!
I say : I want You to get up right Now...get up and go to your bathroom medicine cabinet, and flush all those insidious chemicals away saying :
"DAMMIT! I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!! ~ :}
Nor do I much approve of Alcohol...except strictly for partying as it is the 'Stoopid' Drug...
Show me one person who was ever better off for being under the influence of Alcohol? Hmmm?
Think about the hypocrisy of contemporary society, the Stats on Domestic violence (Alcohol related) On Divorces (Alcohol related) On the killings and the stabbings (Alcohol related) the countless deaths by Car accident (Alcohol related) the cost to society in absenteeism, loss of job, income, etc., etc... (Alcohol related).
How many violent fights do we have to see in a Bar before we realise that its...Alcohol related...?
Now, how many times have you seen Pot smokers engaged in a similar violent conflagration...?
I rest my case.
