Karolina wrote the article entitled "In case you choose not to say no to drugs, kids" published online in the Student Newspaper on September 10, 2018. The title alone shows you how bamboozled Karolina is by Drug Warrior hypocrisy, propaganda and outright lies.

Here is my latest letter to The Student Newspaper, protesting their publishing of drug war lies and propaganda...

Ahem. Ahem.

Dear Editors of the Student Newspaper: Your article from 2018 about the drug war misses the point entirely.

It is wrong to tell children to say no to drugs: that is Christian Science indoctrination. It's like telling them they should say no to aspirin and antihistamines. Certainly, they should not use such substances ill-advisedly, but it is a mere religious and political directive to tell them to say no to such substances. Besides, the whole drug war is immensely hypocritical. It tells us to say "no" to godsend psychedelics that can save lives, emotionally speaking, all while it completely ignores the problem of drug addiction that Big Pharma has created, thanks to which 1 in 4 American women are addicted to Big Pharma meds.

If we're going to start telling kids how to live their lives as adults, let's begin by telling them to say "no" to Big Pharma antidepressants. But, of course, Drug Warriors like Karolina don't mean "blessed medicines" like antidepressants when she uses the political term "drugs."

Someday, outlets like the Student Newspaper will stop printing this kind of Christian Science propaganda, designed to make us think of Mother Nature as a drug kingpin.

My elderly mother has suffered unnecessarily from depression for decades and been addicted to Big Pharma meds for anxiety -- all because the DEA tells us to say "no" to Mother Nature's godsends -- almost all of which are far less addictive than what pharma companies crank out -- and yet we think it's moral to tell children to say "no" to nature's godsends? To the contrary, it's immoral to do so.

Wake up, Student Newspaper: Articles like Karolina's are part of the problem. In fact, they ARE the problem: the problem of the drug war and the illogical and superstitious way that it makes us think about psychoactive substances.

Please learn some inconvenient truths like the following before you "green light" any further articles of this kind that Karolina wrote back in 2018. Until you take the following facts "on board," your newspaper is only "muddying the waters" when it comes to giving America a clear understanding of the politically motivated drug war:

There was no drug problem in Ancient Egypt. There was no drug problem in Ancient Mesopotamia. There was no drug problem in Ancient Greece. There was no drug problem in Ancient Rome. There was no drug problem in the Mongol Empire. There was no drug problem during the Viking era.

Why not? Because until 1914 and the passage of the Harrison Narcotics Act, people were judged by how they actually behaved, not by what substances they had in their digestive systems.

More inconvenient truths for drug warriors:

Freud used cocaine and praised it to the skies for fighting depression and helping him achieve self-actualization in life. Benjamin Franklin used opium. Francis Crick discovered the DNA helix with help from liberal doses of psychedelics. The entire Vedic religion was founded to worship the insights provided by a psychedelic plant.

JFK and his wife used amphetamines in order to "stay fresh" -- at the same time that normal citizens could have been jailed for doing so, especially if there were aggravating circumstances, such as a suspect failing to be a white person.

Meanwhile, the DEA bans research on medical godsend plants that could help in the fight against Alzheimer's -- and KAROLINA DOES NOT EVEN MENTION THIS!!!

Please, un-bamboozle yourself and start publishing articles that speak the truth about the anti-scientific drug war -- which is also a violation of natural law, in case your reporters are looking for a new angle that they've obviously never thought of.

Why not write a belated article protesting the DEA's seizure of Thomas Jefferson's poppy plants in 1987? Jefferson was rolling in his grave -- since that was not just robbery, it was a coup: a coup against the kind of republic that Jefferson had founded: one under natural law, according to which government could not take away basic rights -- including our right to the plants and fungi that grow at our very feet. (In case it's not self-evident to you that plants are ours by right, check out John Locke's Second Treatise of Government on this topic.)

For the latest essays on the disgraceful Drug War, visit my Drug War Philosophy Reddit page.

Are you wondering why I stopped you? Well, aside from the fact that you're Black, of course. No, seriously, seriously! (Sorry, my mom always said I should have been a comedian.) I stopped you to give you a warning. No, not about your dodgy right headlight (tho' you really should get that fixed). I wanted to warn you that this website is all about criticizing the willful ignorance of society when it comes to so-called "drugs." It is not -- I repeat NOT -- about encouraging either "drug use" or the LACK of "drug use." Ya feel me? It's about encouraging EDUCATION about substances rather than DRUG WARRIOR DEMONIZATION of substances.


So if you're contemplating using anything from table salt to heroin, you've come to the wrong site. The author is neither a doctor nor a pharmacologist. This is a philosophical website, not a practical website. You dig me? You need to study up on any and all substances using reliable sources: don't get your medical opinions about specific substances from a philosophy website like this one, for Peter's almighty sake! Ya feel me? Is the copper right or is the copper right?

Now, be on your way -- unless, of course, you're Black, in which case, get out of the car this instant and put your hands on the top of my vehicle! Move! Move! Move! Papa's gonna rough you up a bit. (Tee-hee.)

Just kidding. I really should have been a stand-up comedian, you know.

And get that right headlight looked at, ya numbskull!

Bone up on slam-dunk arguments against the drug war, starting with the fact that it was a violation of natural law to outlaw plant medicine in the first place. Check out the site menu for fun ways to learn more about the manifold injustice of the status quo, including many knock-down arguments never made before. Why? Because even the majority of drug-war opponents have been bamboozled by one or more of the absurd assumptions upon which that war is premised. See through the haze. Read on. Listen on. And Learn how tryants and worrywarts have despoiled American freedom, thereby killing millions around the world, totally unnecessarily, ever since the fateful day in 1914 when ignorant America first criminalized a mere plant -- and insisted that the rest of the world follow suit or else -- an act of colonialist folly unrivaled since the days of the genocidal Conquistadors.
