How to stop the drug wars

Prohibition has failed; legalisation is the least bad solution

Illustration by Noma Bar

A HUNDRED years ago a group of foreign diplomats gathered in Shanghai for the first-ever international effort to ban trade in a narcotic drug. On February 26th 1909 they agreed to set up the International Opium Commission—just a few decades after Britain had fought a war with China to assert its right to peddle the stuff. Many other bans of mood-altering drugs have followed. In 1998 the UN General Assembly committed member countries to achieving a “drug-free world” and to “eliminating or significantly reducing” the production of opium, cocaine and cannabis by 2008.

That is the kind of promise politicians love to make. It assuages the sense of moral panic that has been the handmaiden of prohibition for a century. It is intended to reassure the parents of teenagers across the world. Yet it is a hugely irresponsible promise, because it cannot be fulfilled. (more…)

By Salynn Boyles


People who smoke marijuana do not appear to be at increased risk for developing lung cancer, new research suggests.

While a clear increase in cancer risk was seen among cigarette smokers in the study, no such association was seen for regular cannabis users. (more…)

THE (EX) BIGGEST HEROIN DEALER IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD

October 17, 2008

INTERVIEW BY GRAHAM JOHNSON, PHOTO BY STUART GRIFFITHS


By the time Suleyman Ergun was 21 years old, he was the world’s most prolific and powerful seller of smack. Known throughout the junkie and police communities as the North London Turk, Ergun and his gang flooded Britain and Europe with heroin for five years.

For his pains, the former factory worker got mansions filled with cash and unlimited underworld cachet. At the height of his powers he was a multimillionaire and his favorite tipple was a bottle of champagne with eight grams of cocaine dumped into it. Today, he is almost penniless and lives with his mum. He’s 39. What happened?

Drug quotes

August 7, 2008

“It would stop being a business if the United States didn’t want drugs…When something is out of reach, it is more interesting to people. If drugs were like cigarettes or alcohol, there wouldn’t be a black market. It would put an end to the capos.” -Benjamin Arellano Felix, Mexican drug lord, Wash. Post 10/31/2002

“If a man wishes to rid himself of a feeling of unbearable oppression, he may have to take to Hashish.” -Friedrich Nietzsche

“Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.” -George Washington

“Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man.” -Francis L. Young, DEA judge

“The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the Prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this.” -Albert Einstein

Ann Arbor, MI

Updated: 11/3/2007
Smoking tolerance level: 4
Legislation:
During the last thirty years, Ann Arbor, Michigan has enacted some of the most lenient laws on marijuana possession in the country. A city ordinance has been in place since 1972, which treats marijuana possession as a traffic offense. If you’re caught with pot, (as long as you are not selling) you will receive a small fine, usually about twenty-dollars. However, if you are caught with pot on University of Michigan property… you will be subject to federal laws, because the University is a funded by the federal government, and they own the land. Therefore, it is best to stay off University property when smoking, and stay within Ann Arbor city limits.

The Courts don’t keep track of the number of offenses, they just fine everyone $25 +$25 court costs = $50. Police do not enforce federal law, only state law.

Our most recent report is: “Legislation chage now having possession of marijuana is a 93 day Misdemonor.”
Law enforcement:

Ann Arbor police sometimes patrol areas where tokers smoke outside, especially near toker friendly bars downtown. They may briefly cuff you, take your stash and let you go with a $50 ticket. Otherwise, Ann Arbor police generally don’t investigate cannabis offenses, but they do contribute to the multi-county drug enforcement agency LAWNET.
Try not to blow the smoke right at the police officer and chances are you’ll be alright.
Where to buy marijuana in Ann arbor: Marijuana is most often purchased within someone’s home, or apartment. Marijuana is, however, available on the street. The two head shops near E Williams and S State attract a weed-friendly crowd. The liquor stores in this area, and further down S State near Packard can be good places to find a dealer. Use common sense, and don’t be afraid to ask people. Occasionally, one can find somebody smoking openly in a neighborhood. The Fourth Ward area (Catherine St., E Ann) can be good for this, as well as, other areas with students (Washtenaw, E University, Hill). The Nichols Arboretum (a nature preserve) is often filled with tokers, if school is in session and the weather permits. Just use common sense, and approach people who look like they smoke.

another report we received is :”Preferably from someone you know. However, if you don’t know anyone, I recommend the usual people and places: students, taxi drivers, toker friendly bars and diners, head shops, the “Arboretum”, and other places near the University of Michigan central campus, west side of downtown, and north side of downtown.”
Ann Arbor marijuana prices: 40 per 1/8 of regs and 50-60 per 1/8 of chronic. People selling weed in Ann Arbor mostly consist of college students and because of how they’re all looking for a cut you aren\’t going to find any cheap prices in town.

and also: “Prices usually go for a little higher than you have posted. Midgrade weed may go for prices like that, but if you’re looking to buy good weed, it’s going to be more around $40-50 for an eighth.”

July 17, 2008

by Adam Miller
(NaturalNews) Transcending political controversy and stigma surrounding the subject, the second largest physician group in the country has endorsed the use, reclassification, and further study of medicinal marijuana. In a position paper issued February 14th, the American College of Physicians (ACP) makes the case that the red tape surrounding the medical use of cannabis is obscuring good science and stifling research.
