Roe v Wade and Drug laws

From MR. JUSTICE STEWART, concurring. Opinion

3. State criminal abortion laws, like those involved here, that except from criminality only a life-saving procedure on the mother’s behalf without regard to the stage of her pregnancy and other interests involved violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which protects against state action the right to privacy, including a woman’s qualified right to terminate her pregnancy.

Weirdharold says:
If Roe v Wade violates the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Where the state cannot prohibit a woman from taking something from their body, why wouldn’t the same law apply to the drug laws that prohibit someone from putting something in their body.

DEA propaganda

This is the story the DEA is telling our youth about heroin

From the text: Who uses heroin?
In the United States in 1999 there were 104,000 new heroin users. In 2000, approximately 1.2% of the population reported heroin use at least once in their lifetime.

That is a good way to demonize and mongrelize some of the most mentally ill in this nation. Of course, they forgot to tell them heroin is reduced to it most concerted form to get it into this country. In some other forms it can be use as a pain killer, without the side effect of the sythentic medicine.

The DEA Calls this Accomplishments

Mobile Enforcement Teams, just one section of DEA,
( similar to SS squads)

MET Results
October 1995 – April 2002

Completed Deployments — 339
Offenders Arrested — 14,456
Assets Seizures (value) — $24,790,969 (includes $11,652,085 cash)

Drug Seizures (in pounds):
• Cocaine — 1,946
• Heroin — 144
• Methamphetamine — 758
• Marijuana — 6,656Their goal was to keep young people from becoming, “Drug Addicts”

I suppose if their goal was to keep young folks from picking their nose,
they would tell you they cut off 14,456 fingers. That would be an accomplishment.

Same Event , same Spiritual Principle

But let the religious argue about the details

Genesis 22 (King James Version)

7And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

 8And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

 9And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

 10And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

Sura 37 Those Ranged in Rank

37.102] And when he attained to working with him, he said: O my son! surely I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice you; consider then what you see. He said: O my father! do what you are commanded; if Allah please, you will find me of the patient ones.
[37.103] So when they both submitted and he threw him down upon his forehead,
[37.104] And We called out to him saying: O Ibrahim!
[37.105] You have indeed shown the truth of the vision; surely thus do We reward the doers of good:

“genetically addicted” claim

RimChamp Says

Apparently, I have not got around to changing my original password and can’t access the account. I also can’t re register using my preferred password. I would hope that you have some legitimate study to back up the “genetically addicted” claim. As depressed as I’d been when I was younger I was in little danger of having problems with drugs. My rewards system was primarily internal and alcohol and marijuana usage beyond a certain level interfered with it. I might have had some problems before I started seriously running. I had a variety of health problems before that. I had seriously sleep problems, anxiety, and numerous headaches and tensions. After I started running 6 or more times per week they seemed to vanish into fat air. It wasn’t just the physical exercise. It was the time spent alone that enabled distancing or separation from the pressures that I put on myself. Even today I do my best writing shortly after a long run.

Weirdharold says belowI am not making a “genetically addicted” claim. I am claiming the opposite theory is incorrect, in my opinion. Why wallow in the thought that making brainless law will produce better mental health. My experience with alcohol starts this ball rolling as I have stated many times on this blog. As for the “genetically addicted” claim in my family, I am fully acquainted with four generations, both maternal and parental, which includes 71 individuals and I happen to be the only addict.

My experience includes: I have been in mental health units 5 times for 120 days. I personally have been treated over 46 years by 19 psychiatrists, 13 psychologists and 24 family physicians for manic depressive disorder. I have no idea have many visits that included.

I visited a Federal prison once, one State prison many times, three county jails about 50 times, one hospital for the criminally insane three times. I have visited about 10 alcohol/drug treatment centers more than 100 times. I have visited alcoholic/addicts in lawyers offices, doctors offices, churches, and their homes 100s of times, I have been to about 12,000 fellowship meeting the past 30 years in 16 different states and one foreign country. I know I have met more than 10,000 addicts.

Now let any DEA agent or politician put their resume up against that.

The routine is the same with every addict. He says, “I do not believe I am an addict”. After he hears the story of hundreds just like him, then comes the statement, “Why am I an addict? or how did I become an addict?” their father and mother may or may not have drinks or used. They may or may not have siblings in the same position as they. The answer is very simple we do not know? Nor does anyone else.

I am making the claim because we have no research these laws have reduced the incident of addiction. Our politicians are make claims that we are saving children from a live of crime while making laws to insure the they will be broken.

Part I Education

As I have stated many times on my blog, I am an alcoholic and a manic-depressive. I have not had a drink of alcohol since 1975. I have never been involved in drugs except for washing down my prescription drugs with alcohol. I never thought much about the drugs laws until 1987 when the Reagan spin-meisters began the War on Drugs to avoid the negative public reaction from the Iran-Contra scam. While Ronnie slept, Nancy began the “Just Say No to Drugs” campaign. To me, that’s about like saying to the homeless, “Just buy a house.”

As the spin grew, every politician in the USA had a sugar tit. The legislative outcome was a three-tiered administrative nightmare: Education, Interdiction and Treatment. I am going to explain each from my experience. I was born in central Kentucky shortly after the end of prohibition. Of course during this era, most manufacturers of moonshine were gone, but the bootleggers (the illegal resellers of taxed whiskey) were everywhere. My mother was very anti-alcohol and often explained to me the evils of the devil’s brew. We lived far out in the country on a tobacco farm, and I was allowed access to the family automobile when I turned 15. I was told if I ever drank alcohol that the car would be taken away from me. I knew the threat was genuine. I had my first drink of alcohol soon after my 19th birthday. Moments after I took that first drink, a feeling came over me that I had never felt before. It was a general feeling of well-being, and I couldn’t help but think that my mother had been lying to me about alcohol for all these years. This was where the addiction began for me.

Our schools receive grants from the administrative agency (DEA) to bring misinformation to our children. They tell our kids things like you will not become an addict if you do not use the specific drugs they have outlawed. While this may sound correct, it is entirely untrue. The addict is an addict before he takes his first drink or has his first hit. Addiction is caused by an unknown brain disorder, and it’s really just a question of how the addict will choose to cope with their disorder. The addict will eventually learn that the use of psychoactive drugs provides them with relief from their disorder. To the addict, these substances are godsends. After the initial experiences with the substance, everything the addict has ever heard from authority figures about these drugs becomes lies. The addict’s brain focuses only on the relief that these substances bring.

People are trapped into thinking that the addict is a bad person because he would not be an addict if had not have used the drug, but everyone ignores the fact that thousands of people use these substances everyday and don’t become addicts. The blame is placed on the drug and not the brain disorder that causes the addiction. Here our use of educational system actually does harm by dividing the addict from others. The addict has a poisoned mind that makes him believe he is using a psychoactive drug for fun; when in fact, he cannot stop under normal conditions. He may promise to quit when asked but will later continue for no apparent reason. The addict’s family cannot understand, and they will do anything to get him to stop. They may help him out of legal troubles (most that should not exist), which might cause them to form resentments towards the addict. No education can lend help to addiction because we know so little about it. In the following section on interdiction, I will show more about the laws attempting to prevent drug use and how they cause more harm to the addict and their families.
