DEA Guilty of Crimes Against Humanity

by Ballard Quass, the Drug War Philosopher




December 26, 2019

he DEA has blocked soldiers receiving MDMA for post-traumatic stress disorder, in defiance of their own judge's recommendation that the therapy move forward. That judge said the therapy could go forward in 1985 -- but the DEA shut it down, based partly on bogus scientific reports written to curry favor with Drug Warriors.

In doing this, the DEA is responsible for 30 years' (and counting) worth of unnecessary suffering for American soldiers.

They have blocked depressives and alcoholics from receiving godsend medications for four decades and counting.

In doing this, the DEA is responsible for 45 years' (and counting) worth of unnecessary suffering for alcoholics and the depressed.

They have blocked study of ayahuasca, even though it has been shown to grow new neurons in the brain. Pity the DEA fools who reach retirement age and start to unnecessarily suffer from Alzheimer's because they blocked this godsend plant from even being studied.

The question is no longer if the DEA is acting rightly. The answer is clear: the DEA is a despotic, violence-causing anti-democratic force determined to keep their jobs at the expense of the health and happiness of the American people. Just as alcohol prohibition single-handedly created the Mafia, substance prohibition has resulted in the creation of inner-city shooting galleries.

Abolishing the DEA is just the first step: Its officers need to be tried for crimes against humanity, to be hauled before a court to answer for their lies about mother nature's medicines, their self-dealing, their withholding of godsend therapies from the depressed, alcoholics and America's soldiers.

These are not simple crimes: they are crimes against humanity, from an anti-scientific anti-minority agency with a blatant conflict of interest in "scheduling" substances, since their very jobs depend on substances being illegal.

{^When the DEA rates substances like psilocybin and MDMA as "schedule one," they are protecting their own jobs, not the American people. The overwhelming scientific evidence is that both medicines can be therapeutic godsends. But the DEA rating system is not about science, it's about preserving DEA jobs and the oppressive reign of the DEA itself.}{

Yes, abolish the DEA... but then place its officers on trial for knowingly withholding godsend medications from the American people.

{^Join the DEA today, start busting heads tomorrow. Help needed to keep godsend medications out of the hands of soldiers suffering from PTSD. Ideal candidate will be heartless and have a contempt for Mother Nature's pharmacy. Experience breaking down doors a plus. Jackboots will be provided.}{


Author's Follow-up: September 29, 2022

The DEA are the thought police, enforcing Christian Science sharia, and the Drug War is a make-work program for law enforcement. Paul Stamets stuttered as a kid and couldn't look girls in the face. As a teen, he ate some psilocybin mushrooms and overcame his stuttering during the "trip," because the shroom helped him look at himself objectively, from outside of his own ego, and he was able to tell himself firmly and successfully that "I will stutter no more," and he did not. What's more he was able to stare women in the face from then on. Think of it: he overcame his stuttering in one day -- and yet Americans who want help with 'mental health' are shunted off to expense psychiatrists who make them chemically dependent for life on ineffective Big Pharma meds -- meds that, believe me, have never stopped someone from stuttering in one insightful afternoon.

I mention this story to underscore the vicious idiocy of the DEA trying to stop us from using plant medicines.

Nor is this story unique. Read the work of Stan Grof, James Fadimore, Amanda Feilding, Charles Grob, and others. And what about the coca leaf? Folks, America could defeat depression overnight merely by legalizing (or rather re-legalizing) the coca leaf. Read the work of W. Golden Mortimer, PhD on this topic. But the Drug Warrior demonizes drugs, so we conflate the coca leaf with cocaine, even though they are two very different drugs.

I mention this to underscore the vicious idiocy of the DEA.

The Vedic-Hindu religion was inspired by psychedelics. The Mayans considered 'magic mushrooms' to be divine. The Inca of Peru believed there was divinity in the coca plant.

I mention this to underscore the vicious idiocy of the DEA, an agency that is seeking to ruin our lives if we dare use plant medicines that have inspired entire religions!
