So-called 'smart' drug impairs creative people

"There is wide use of drugs to medicate boys, especially, against their natural tendency toward action, the better to "keep things on track."

I taught briefly in a public high school and would have loved to have set up a Ritalin® fogger in my classroom.

It is a rare person, male or female, who is naturally inclined to sit still for 17 years in school, and then indefinitely at work." - Matthew B. Crawford

1887 Amphetamine (alpha-methylphenethylamine) is synthesized in Germany by Romanian chemist Lazar Edeleanu who names it phenylisopropylamine.

1893 Methamphetamine is synthesized by chemist Nagayoshi Nagai.

The molecular structure of this pioneering material is similar to adrenalin, and so it passes easily through the blood and into the brain.

Unlike adrenalin, however, methamphetamine does not cause sudden rises in blood pressure but works more gently and lasts longer.

The effect occurs as the drug slowly tickles out dopamine and noradrenaline from the nerve cells of the brain and pours them into synaptic gaps.

This puts the brain cells in excited chain reactive communication.

As the neuronal firework explode a biochemical machine gun starts firing uninterrupted sequences of cyclic repetitious action thoughts.

The consumer feels wide awake and experiences an increase in energy.

One feels livelier, energized to the tips of one's hair and fingers.

Self-confidence rises as there is a subjectively perceived acceleration of thought processes, a sense of euphoria, and a feeling of lightness and freshness.

Neurologically a state of emergency is experienced, a shock of terror, a time when an organism mobilizes all its forces - even though there is no danger.

And this is the reason that "speed does indeed kill."

1933 Smith, Kline and French began selling Benzedrine®.

Benzedrine sulfate is introduced and used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, including narcolepsy, obesity, low blood pressure, low libido, chronic pain and as an over-the-counter inhaler to treat asthma.

When Benzedrine® became a controlled substance, it is replaced by propylhexedrine, also known as hexahydromethamphetamine.

Amphetamines are "power drugs" that reduce fatigue, heighten aggression, and diminish human warmth and empathy.

Amphetamines, used chronically, induce stereotyped thought and behavior.

Long-term use of amphetamines often exacerbates depression.

Extended binges on methamphetamine leads to hallucinations and paranoia.

Hallucinations and paranoia lead to methamphetamine induced psychosis.

Methamphetamine induced psychosis is caused by effects on at least three areas of the brain: the visual cortex, the auditory cortex, and the amygdala.

A large part of this induced psychosis is the by product of fatigue, a shutting down of the higher thought processes and lack of dreaming to reset neurons.

Frontal lobes are often damaged by addiction to methamphetamine.

1941 Massive amounts of methamphetamines are produced by both the Allies and Axis powers.

John F. Kennedy and Adolf Hitler both receive daily injections of methamphetamine.

Adolf Hitler's Wehrmacht distributed methamphetamine tablets to German fighting troops throughout World War II as did the US Army Air Forces.

The Japanese used methamphetamine to help the teen age suicide bombers (kamikaze) to complete their airplane flights to their intended American warship targets.

After World War II there were huge stockpiles of methamphetamines left in many countries, especially in Japan and throughout northern Europe.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, a huge surge in methamphetamine abuse was noted in Scandinavia and Japan following the dumping of these methamphetamine stocks onto the civilian market.

"I have seen desperate Heroin™ addicts, unable to find a workable vein to shoot their next fix suffering from liver disease and God knows what else, recover physically 100% and go on to lead relatively decent lives. Stimulant abusers, too, can make remarkable physical recoveries although, in truth, it's much more difficult than recovering from Heroin™." - John J. Coleman

Potential Effects of Cannabidiol as a Wake-Promoting Agent

CBD possesses pharmacological potential, including anxiolytic, antipsychotic, antiemetic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Whereas it has been well established that Δ9THC promotes sleep, contradictory results on the effect of CBD on sleep were reported.

For instance, Monti (1977) found a diminution in sleep after systemic administration of CBD, whereas Carlini and Cunha (1981) showed an improvement in sleep in insomniacs after using CBD.

Hypothalamus - Central administration of CBD enhances c-Fos expression in the hypothalamus. Several reports suggest a key role of hypothalamus in the modulation of alertness.

Dorsal raphe nuclei - Central administration of CBD enhances c-Fos expression in DRN. It is known that electrophysiological activity of DRN is higher in the waking state and decreases during sleep, being virtually absent in REM sleep.

Using a microdialysis approach, DA contents collected from AcbC have been found enhanced after central administration of CBD.

Lesions of DA neurons reduce arousal in animal models, as well as in Parkinson' disease patients that present sleep dysfunction such as excessive daytime sleepiness.

If CBD induces alertness via activation of neurons in the hypothalamus and promotes the enhancement in DA levels, it would suggest that the enzymatic process involved in the formation of catecholamines may be under the influence of CBD.

1967 31 million prescriptions in America for amphetamines.

Methamphetamine does not only pour neurotransmitters into the gaps but also blocks their reabsorption.

For this reason the effects are long-lasting, often more than twelve hours, a length of time that damage the nerve cells at higher doses as the intercellular energy supply is drawn into sympathy.

The neurons run hot and brain chatter can't be turned off.

Nerve cells give up and die off irrevocably.

This can lead to a deterioration in the ability to find words, in attention and concentration, and a general depletion in the brain where memory, emotions, and the reward system are concerned.

The lack of stimulation once the effect fades away is a sign of empty hormone stores, which have to fill back up again over the course of several weeks.

In the meantime fewer neurotransmitters are available: the consequences can include a lack of drive, depression, joylessness, and cognitive disturbances.

1994 263 meth labs are seized in America.

2000 1,800 meth labs are seized by DEA.

4,600 meth labs are seized by local police in America.

2006 Harvard Work Hours, Health and Safety Group reports that one in five resident-physicians admitted making a chronic fatigue related mistake that injured a patient.

One in 20 admitted a chronic fatigue related mistake that resulted in a patient's death.

"Working day and night, rather than transferring patient care to a fresh doctor, increases serious medical errors in ICUs by 36%, including a 460% increase in serious diagnostic mistakes.

Twenty-four hours without sleep slows reaction time comparably to alcohol intoxication.

Physician-trainees routinely fall asleep during lectures, on patient rounds, while examining patients and even during surgery.

After working more than 24 hours, resident physicians are 73% more likely to stab themselves with a needle and 168% more likely to crash driving home." - Charles A. Czeisler

"Partway through a 36-hour shift at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I was hungry and hadn't slept for 24 hours, but I was facing an overflowing intensive care unit and somehow needed to discharge five patients to make room for more.

Mr. "Smith", who had esophageal surgery, was a borderline call.

Because of the pressure I was under, I decided to remove his breathing tube.

That turned out to be a very bad decision.

After six hours he still wasn't waking up." - Peter Pronovost

2007 A raid in Mexico yields $205 million in cash, mostly $100 dollar bills, weighing 4,500 lb earned selling methamphetamines.

Overdiagnosis of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

"No behavior or misbehavior is a disease or can be a disease.

That's not what diseases are.

Diseases are malfunctions of the human body, of the heart, the liver, the kidney, the brain.

Typhoid fever is a disease.

Spring fever is not a disease; it is a figure of speech, a metaphoric disease.

All mental diseases are metaphoric diseases, misrepresented as real diseases and mistaken for disease." - Thomas Szasz, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus

"ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease."

Leon Eisenberg

Ritalin®, Vyvanse®, Strattera®, and Adderall®

Adderall Is Basically Crystal Meth

"People with attention deficit disorder (as well as those with dyslexia, depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety disorders) usually have extraordinary talents that get buried under troubles and disappointments.

Getting enough sleep, eating right and getting lots of physical exercise help with attention deficit disorder (and everything else)." - Edward M. Hallowell

"There are many children whose only problem in life is not doing their homework but are medicated with ADHD drugs; and the majority of their parents had no idea that they were giving their children amphetamines or amphetamine-like substances." - Bruce Levine

2001 Marketing of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs legalized.

PHRMA began aggressively marketing attention-deficit hyperactivity drugs.

2001 to 2006 Use of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs has increased 60%.

2006 25 people - including 19 children - die suddenly within the last 4 years while using attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drugs which include Ritalin®, Concerta®, Methylin® and Metadate® - all stimulants; 43 people taking the drugs for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder experienced serious cardiovascular events, including strokes, cardiac arrest and heart palpitations; 26 serious cardiovascular problems were reported in children, including two heart attacks and two strokes.

3.3 million Americans 19 or younger and nearly 1.5 million age 20 and older are taking attention deficit disorder medicines.

Children in America are prescribed attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs at 10 times the rate that children are prescribed attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder drugs in Europe.

Nearly 1 in 10 12-year-old American boys take a stimulant.

2011 ADHD drugs and their generic equivalents are responsible for nearly 23,000 emergency room visits in America.

Over a six-year span, there's been a 400% increase in ER visits.

"Patients are no longer just taking medications in childhood, but are encouraged to stay on them when they become adults.

Vyvanse®, an amphetamine, and Concerta® were introduced in 2008 for treating adults.

Students take drugs to increase academic performance, and physicians and lawyers are taking stimulants in hopes of boosting their productivity.

These drugs have therefore become increasingly popular.

According to a 2007 study, prescriptions for ADHD drugs in the methalphenidate and amphetamine categories rose by almost 12% per year between 2000 and 2005." - Paul Solomon

dangers of smoking meth

Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol prevents methamphetamine-induced neurotoxicity

The excess and continual use of methamphetamine while not necessarily causing excessive memory loss causes the human brain to run in a cyclic pattern of thought, like a viynl record stuck in a groove, that cycles back upon itself repeatedly interjected with hallucinogenic day dreams.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez describes perfectly the psychosis experienced by a methamphetamine user in his story about the insomnia plague.

After many hours of wakefulness the methamphetamine user is as close to the zombies portrayed in horror movies as all higher brain functions cease.

Frontal lobe functions no longer work.

Chronic methamphetamine use is a form of insanity.

phenylpropanolamine and catastrophic stroke

"Two federal officials have concluded that asthma sufferers risk death if they continue to use four hugely popular asthma drugs - Advair®, Symbicort®, Serevent® and Foradil®." - Gardiner Harris, 12/05/08

1982 FDA report warns that phenylpropanolamine has "the ability to cause cardiovascular effects, cerebral hemorrhage and cardiac arrhythmias."

Two years later a memo from the medical services department at Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, which made the phenylpropanolamine products Triaminic® and Tavist-D®, referred to phenylpropanolamine as "an agent known to cause hypertension and stroke," yet the pharmaceutical industry accelerated their marketing of phenylpropanolamine, winning FDA approval to sell prescription phenylpropanolamine products on an over-the-counter basis while introducing flavorful new formulas for young children.

The pharmaceutical industry consistently challenged any notion that phenylpropanolamine could be dangerous and dismissed contrary evidence.

Mini strokes linked to heart attacks

Tracy Patton, at 37, and Tricia Newenham, at 15, had a catastrophic stroke.

Only hours before the catastrophic strokes each victim had taken an over-the-counter medicine containing phenylpropanolamine the active ingredient in scores of popular nonprescription decongestants and diet aids.

1999 Landmark $5 million Yale University study sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry concludes the use of phenylpropanolamine is associated with an increased risk of catastrophic stroke.

Tracy Patton and Tricia Newenham, who had taken Triaminic® cold syrup, were among hundreds of phenylpropanolamine consumers who had catastrophic strokes.

The pharmaceutical industry launches a yearlong campaign to keep the results quiet and stall government regulation.

By the time the phenylpropanolamine is removed from over-the-counter medicine, 13 months and hundreds of strokes later, the companies have reformulated their brand names with little interruption in sales or cash flow.

The PHRMA market for phenylpropanolamine, estimated at $500 million to $1 billion anually, is saved and in the interim, Americans continue to purchase phenylpropanolamine products off the shelf assuming they are safe.

The pharmaceutical industry hoped to make it through the 2000 cold season without pulling phenylpropanolamine products.

November 2000 Two weeks after an FDA advisory panel concluded that phenylpropanolamine could be hazardous, an official with Bayer, which made Alka-Seltzer Plus® with phenylpropanolamine, drafted a proposed "phenylpropanolamine crisis action plan."

The crisis action plan's stated objectives: "Delay mandatory implementation of FDA recommendation. Blunt PR impact by highlighting as questionable study conclusions as they pertain to cough/cold products."

ritalin drug zone


hyperactivity 'is not a real disease'

"It was kind of like weirdly amazing.

You get excited about monotonous work, honestly."

Maggie Preston

Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics states that Ritalin® is "structurally related to amphetamines. Its pharmacological properties are essentially the same as those of the amphetamines."

1986 The International Journal of the Addictions publishes "An Outline of Hazardous Side Effects of Ritalin (Methylphenidate") by Richard Scarnati [v.21(7), pp. 837-841].

Scarnati listes over a hundred adverse reactions of Ritalin® and indexes published journal articles for each of these symptoms.

For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin® effects then, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:



Terrified affect

Toxic psychosis

Started screaming

• Aggressiveness

Paranoid delusions

Paranoid psychosis

• Psychic dependence

Extreme withdrawal

• Visual hallucinations

• Auditory hallucinations

• Decreased REM sleep

• Activation of psychotic ideation

• Effects pathological thought processes

• High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug

Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences

Brain damage is likely with extended amphetamine abuse

Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis

• Ritalin®, an amphetamine-type chemical, creates amphatamine-like effects

• Combo with antiDepressant reactions: hypertension, seizures, hypothermia

Ritalin® acts much like cocaine™."

American Medical Association

1994 Textbook of Psychiatry, published by the American Psychiatric Press, contains this review (Popper and Steingard): "Stimulants [such as Ritalin®] do not produce lasting improvements in aggressivity, conduct disorder, criminality, education achievement, job functioning, marital relationships, or long-term adjustment."

"Stimulants such as Ritalin® and amphetamine have grossly harmful impacts on the brain by reducing overall blood flow, disturbing glucose metabolism, and possibly causing permanent shrinkage or atrophy of the brain." - Peter Breggin, Talking Back to Ritalin

1999 Running on Ritalin by Lawrence Diller is printed.

"Dr. Diller has correctly described the disturbing trend of blaming children's social, behavioral, and academic performance problems entirely on an unproven brain deficit" - Dr. William Carey, Director of Behavioral Pediatrics, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Ecstasy and absolution

Taken to Peter Pan's Neverland

MDMA changes how people talk about significant others

1911 Anton Köllisch, involved in investigating syntheses for hydrastinine and methylhydrastinine, describes the synthesis of the chemical MDMA.

1960 Project MKUltra is still investigating new techniques of brainwashing, espionage and mind control.

The CIA hopes MDMA can be used as a chemical warfare agent designed to sow confusion, anxiety and fear in the unwilling recipient.

Theodore John Kaczynski, one of the test subjects undergoes "purposely brutalizing psychological experiments" led by Harvard psychologist Henry Murray under the influence of MDMA.

These purposely brutalizing psychological experiments severely alter the brain of Theodore Kaczynski.

May 31, 1985 MDMA becomes illegal in America.

"A lot of the Ecstasy we see in Las Vegas comes from Israeli dealers." - Sergeant Blake Quackenbush, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police

1987 3,4-methylenedioxy-n-ethylamphetamine (MDEA) Schedule I.

1994 to 2004 Israeli chemical traffickers dominate the trans-Atlantic lines of shipment of MDMA.

Oded Tuito* imports more than 7 million "Ecstacy" pills into America before being arrested.

Oded Tuito dies mysteriously while incarcerated in Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn - the same place Jeffery Epstein hung himself.

"Oded Tuito was known as the world's largest trafficker of MDMA." - DEA administrator Karen Tandy before the US House of Representatives Appropriations Committee
