THE DRUG WARS-AGAINST PEOPLE
*From his book 'Trying To Light The Match'/'Kicking The One Reality Habit' THE DRUG WARS….WHO REALLY CONTROLS US…AND WHY?

-Think about it…it's a 'SHOCKER' & a War on people-
By: 'Sweeps' Fox

The history of 'approved' medical 'drugs' is replete with failures (as well as successes), terrible side effects...all medical drugs have side effects..., and even reverse and opposite effects. Common side effects, of most approved medical drugs, are what Nurses abbreviate as NVD...nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Other side effects can result in shock, unconsciousness, coma, and death...and these are from routinely prescribed and approved 'medical drugs'. And, allergic reactions can always be counted as possible side effects to medical drugs. It's amazing, the individual is always part of the equation. The state of health of the individual, the age, the sex, weight, the medical history, and the individuals 'mental makeup' all play a part in projections of what drugs are prescribed to treat, the method of administration, and how the 'medicine' will effect that person. There is no absolute and guaranteed outcome, contrary to popular belief about 'medical' treatment. So, the individual is really a queer duck and must be catered to and considered as a 'one off' case at all times...if one is a good physician, he/she is well aware of this. Surely, almost everyone we know has a story about their personal experience with medical drug treatment. It's because they are all individuals.

'Over the counter' drugs, the officially sanctioned ones, all have side effects and play differently through each individual. They're readily obtainable of course. Many of these 'safe' drugs are implicated in suicides, overdoses, and 'bad' reactions. Common 'Tylenol' and paracetemol, bought and taken daily by millions of people to relieve minor pain, headaches, and fever, can lead to acute poisoning and death if taken in excess. Tylenol poisoning is one of the worst overdoses to treat in an emergency situation, with yards of protocols to be followed. We should all know of problems with laxative dependency, cough medicine's drowsy effects, the effects of a wide range of 'quick' self medication on pregnant women and the fetus, and the problem with common aspirin given to children (Reyes syndrome).

Our culture is a drug giving, obsessive, encouraging, and 'pushing' one. Pharmaceutical companies wouldn't survive if it weren't the case...and they survive as profit leaders of industry. Very early we are all taught the great benefits of drug taking. We spend billions every year on prescriptions, vaccinations, symptomatic relief, suppositories, and all the related sundries. We're a society of 'pill poppers' for any and all real and imaginary ailments. Being healthy is inexorably linked to taking massive quantities of drugs, vitamins, minerals, and food supplements.

Drug companies are feverishly trying to produce different and more effective anti-biotics against strains of bacteria which have developed immunity and resistance to older frequently prescribed ones. Our anti-biotic policies are in complete disarray. Anti-biotics have been 'over prescribed' (obtainable in 3rd/4th world countries without a 'script') and given out so willy nilly, without proper cultures and sensitivities for specifically targeted organisms being done, that they have become ineffectual. The are routinely given for virus infections because the public demands something to swallow. Anti-biotics have no effect on viral infections. Doctors know this, but prescribe them anyway at the first sign of symptoms that 'might be' a bacterial infection...and to placate the patient. In fact, if anti-biotics are given for viral infections the virus is aided. Bacteria can be their main enemy...and anti-biotics kill off beneficial bacterial...the ones we need for digestion among others. The fungus like it as well. They thrive and 'overgrow' in our bodies when our normal bacterial 'flora' is killed off or rendered impotent.

Resistance to anti-biotics by 'bugs' is such a problem that tuberculosis is fast making a rabid comeback and meningitis forms rendered untreatable. 'Superbugs' are being created that can actually live on anti-biotics (they seem to be waiting hungrily and expect the delicious anti-biotics to be introduced into the body), and hospitals are NOW…not becoming…'breeding grounds' for strains of bacteria that will not respond to any anti-biotic treatment.

Maybe our immune systems are suffering because we are no longer permitted to 'catch' diseases like measles, mumps, chicken pox, and whooping cough. I don't know, but I (an admitted isolated case) 'caught' all of them...survived...and built up a natural immunity to any future attacks. Well I could still get a new dose of whopping cough. Nowadays our immune systems are spared having to work or function for us at all in the full sense. We're given vaccines against all of these diseases. This is not to dismiss the great benefits brought by medical research to eradicating such potent life threatening plagues as polio, diphtheria, whooping cough and the like. But is it possible, in some unforeseen way, that vaccines are weakening our immune response systems? Are they being side-stepped, dis-used, and circumvented?

Does the rule of 'use it or lose it' prevail? There is some interesting research being done in these areas right now but with no conclusions yet. Keep an eye out. Medical authorities will tell us that vaccines merely fool or assist the immune system into working and thus the system is kept working. That may be an over simplification...not the holistic answer we're looking for. We need to know if the efficacy of the immune system has been affected at all. Speculation and divisions are rife that we are no longer exposed to 'enough bugs' as we use to be in a more natural environment. Our artificial environment keeps us away from keeping our immune system hyped up. Closing off our contact with Nature is suspected in the increase in auto immune allergic diseases and the overall failure of our immune system to 'be able' to function normally.

In the recent past we have all also served nicely as human guinea pigs for the testing of approved medicines. And then, millions of people are prescribed tranquilizers and kept on them for months or years. Millions more are 'on' anti-depressants interminably. They're afraid to come off of them and have to live with the side effects, possible withdrawal effects, and the plain fact that they 'cure' nothing. In the United States, anti-depressants are the second most prescribed 'drug'. All of today's anti-depressants were basically 'hit upon' in the 50's and 60's...by accident. Certain drugs were found to have effects on mood and mood changes...and they started using them. Only later research found that these medications targeted the 'brain' chemicals of nor-adrenaline and seratonin. Newer products based on a 3 chain of molecules, called trycliclides, merely expanded on the targeting of the specific 'brain' chemicals. Then we had the advent of the drug called Prozac, which is probably the most frequently prescribed, most widespread, and the all time big gun of anti-depressant chemical treatment. Prozac specifically targets only seratonin. Statistics show that 33 percent, or more, of patients on Prozac receive no benefit at all.

Another 33 percent would have had symptom remission without it, and the other one-third percentage of patients are still up and down in treatment response. The idea that a replacement chemical or a balancing chemical for 'brain' mood control has not taken the subjective and individual ever into account. The real admission by neurologists that we simply don't know what these 'brain' chemicals do is more than revealing of the nonsense efficacy of anti-depressant drug therapy. In spite of scientific admissions of lack of understanding about just how these chemicals work, the license to produce these 'drugs' and distribute them has made pharmaceutical companies very rich. These 'drugs' are truly 'hit and miss' and 'trial and error'...with the emphasis on error. I suppose being legally addicted on approved drugs is different?

The thalidomide-birth deformity tragedy is but one other example. We simply do not know all the 'hidden' side effects of approved drugs until up to 20 years later. What's being said here is that even with legal, stamped and sealed, drugs we are not handed a complete no risk situation. Following all the 'allowed' rules and taking only approved drugs has no assurity of safety and remedy with its' reliance on authority...no matter how well meaning. We may be at the mercy of dedicated researchers and pharmaceutical companies who mean us no harm, but they are still experimenting with us.

It seems it's O.K. for authorities to experiment with us, but not for us to experiment with ourselves. Our bodies can be 'used' and subservient to outside impersonal authorities...but we can be told that 'right' doesn't extend to us using our own bodies in a personal way? An illogic perversity there...and so much for freedom of the individual. There's a certain bad ring to that. It's called control. Dig it!


Many times, as a Nurse in a psychiatric setting conducting group therapy sessions, I would encourage patients (who were ready for it) to start taking charge of their own lives. No one should tell them who they were, and it was time to take back control for themselves. Examples, from their own life episodes and low self esteem would be used to show how they had let people have power over them. Knock knock, are you in there? It all seems hypocritical and empty when faced with the lack of control and power we as individuals have given away, lost, or had usurped by authorities.

It also means that 'internal freedom', which should somehow be an individuals right, is absolutely not recognized and denied us. It's not possible...is it...that a big authority can outright come out and say 'if ya'll try to treat yourself or -'get into yourself'- without our approval. you're for it'? Something is basically rotten when a person can't do something to him/her self without the government or other 'power tripping' authority stepping in. The 'establishment's' war on drugs is a war on people.

Cannabis, peyote buttons, magic mushrooms, all the hard drugs, LSD and other-so called-hallucinogens have been around a long time. There side effects are fairly well established...unlike newly approved medicines just appearing on the market. The side effect most troublesome to 'authority' is the release from social controls and bounded minds that occurs. The possibility of raised consciousness and 'do your own thing' is the utmost threat. They fear it would bring down governments, vested interests, cultures, and create chaos. Change is always cast in dire predictions. Establishments are so easily threatened by those who would bring their lies to light and challenge the values of the moment. The careers of lawyers, politicians, and government officials are built on lies. Telling the truth would cause the chaos.

The most potent hallucinogen is 'Acid'-LSD-lysergic acid diethylamide...LSD-25. Marijuana is also considered a mild type of hallucinogen. The other major hallucinogens are psilocybin and mescaline. There are others...certain roots and vines of plants grown in South American jungles (such as the woody Ayahuasca vine), and probably more yet undiscovered...or forgotten...being destroyed in Man's deforestation of the rain forests and other natural habitat settings. The established fact that the hallucinogens are not physically addictive, I'm sure sticks in the craw of pro-culturists. The scientific jury is still out on whether they are to be considered 'psychologically' addictive. A verdict in the affirmative would be meaningless anyway. Anything and everything we wrap ourselves around is psychologically addictive. Mowing the lawn and keeping your garden neat is addictive. But, the insinuation of a positive verdict would be that taking hallucinogens is 'pure escapism' and of a different 'degree'. I still believe that we all need to try and escape now and again...it's healthy. And, it begs the obvious... why any human would want to 'escape' from 'the planet of the apes' in the first place.

Well, we all do. Adults in our culture take alcohol, coffee, smoke cigarettes, engage in bungy jumping, parachuting, dancing, sport car racing, walking in the woods, climbing mountains, travel adventures, diversified sex, and anything else to create highs and new consciousness experiences. Youths, as well as adults, will take 'drugs' merely, and normally, to feel another state of high and different consciousness. The common (universal) human desire to seek variety and to experiment with mind things is not in itself unhealthy or a sign of heading toward insanity. In fact, it's a prime mark of human nature to 'reach out', vary life experience, and change one's awareness. Without choices, and things we just plain like to do...we, and our dreams (control and direction over our own life) would die. To go where no one has gone before. Sounds familiar somehow.

Socially, the resultant loosening of inhibitions by alcohol or other psychoactive drugs of all orders actually aids in communication and being able to open up and relate to others...where a restrictive culture inhibits that facility and social need. Drug relationships are different in every person. Humans are polymorphic and polytypic...individuals. The social or drug taking 'set' also influences what happens and what is expected from drug use. No drug is good or bad by itself. Everything is modified through the individual and the setting. No two persons experience the same effect or tolerance and no two persons have the same relationship with drugs...of any order./'Sweeps'

I don't take any drugs myself. But this should be a freedom of choice issue each and every individual has to make for her/himself. Prohibition doesn't works and leads to even greater problems. See prohibition of alcohol in the US in the 1920 as example.
