The Real Midnight Express (2010) -The film "Midnight Express" told the story of Billy Hayes' imprisonment for drug smuggling — now he tells the full escape story : Documentaries
ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING. A total MUST WATCH for Dokumenta. - try to tie it in with another 30-45 minute documentary, possibly with a similar theme. ....................... heists = How he smuggled marijuana out of Turkey; survival = Escaping from prison, particularly, when he finally reaches the Turkish border around 41:00 or 42:00 he needs to get past some guards and dogs. ................................. UNRELATED, but recommended by YouTube after I watched this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WyeAaYjlxE

Why Does The War On Drugs Persist? : 13.7: Cosmos And Culture : NPR
This is now the third example I can think of where people who had a bad experience in their childhood became campaigners against that thing: Ayn Rand against Communism due to her upbringing on Communist Russia; The Koch Brothers against Communism due to their father's negative experience with the nationalization of his oil wells(?) in Russia; and now Anslinger who had a negative experience with addiction (presumably a parent?) as a child and became the first U.S. Drug Czar.

The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think | Johann Hari
"Professor Alexander argues this discovery is a profound challenge both to the right-wing view that addiction is a moral failing caused by too much hedonistic partying, and the liberal view that addiction is a disease taking place in a chemically hijacked brain. In fact, he argues, addiction is an adaptation. It's not you. It's your cage."

Mexico's drug war: In Sinaloa, the drug trade has infiltrated 'every corner of life' - LA Times
"Yudit del Rincon, a 44-year-old lawmaker, went before the state legislature this year with a proposition: Let's require lawmakers to take drug tests to prove they are clean. Her colleagues greeted the idea with applause. Then she sprang a surprise on them: Two lab technicians waited in the audience to administer drug tests to every state lawmaker. We should set the example, she said. They nearly trampled one another in the stampede to the door, Del Rincon recalled."

Merck Cocaine: Behind Some Of Those Fabulous Rolling Stones Songs - Forbes
Merck cocaine. The more I read about drugs, the more it seems we have been lied to. ......................... "“…exhilaration and lasting euphoria, which in no way differs from the normal euphoria of the healthy person…You perceive an increase of self-control and possess more vitality and capacity for work….In other words, you are simply normal, and it is soon hard to believe you are under the influence of any drug….Long intensive physical work is performed without any fatigue…This result is enjoyed without any of the unpleasant after-effects that follow exhilaration brought about by alcohol….Absolutely no craving for the further use of cocaine appears after the first, or even after repeated taking of the drug…”"

What the hell did I walk into...? : ProtectAndServe
A litmus test for meth lab: "If you live in an area where meth is prevalent and your home could have been used for a meth cook, get a can of starch (the kind for ironing your clothes) and spray it on any surface of any of the rooms in your home. If it turns blue, you need to get the fuck out of the house ASAP. A blue reaction means that a phosphorus based meth lab was in your house at one point or another and your health is in danger."

Mexico's Most Notorious Drug Lord Captured in Mazatlan

The drug war is a giant game of whack-a-mole, where the real driver is our retarded drug policy. This arrest will do nothing in the long term. This is either an example of the stupidity of politicians or willful corruption.

Russell Brand: Philip Seymour Hoffman is another victim of extremely stupid drug laws | Comment is free | The Guardian
"Countries like Portugal and Switzerland that have introduced progressive and tolerant drug laws have seen crime plummet and drug-related deaths significantly reduced. We know this. We know this system doesn't work – and yet we prop it up with ignorance and indifference. Why? Wisdom is acting on knowledge. Now we are aware that our drug laws aren't working and that alternatives are yielding positive results, why are we not acting? Tradition? Prejudice? Extreme stupidity? The answer is all three. Change is hard, apathy is easy, tradition is the narcotic of our rulers. The people who are most severely affected by drug prohibition are dispensable, politically irrelevant people. Poor people. Addiction affects all of us but the poorest pay the biggest price."

What Vietnam Taught Us About Breaking Bad Habits : Shots - Health Blog : NPR
"To battle bad behaviors then, one answer, Neal and Wood say, is to disrupt the environment in some way. Even small change can help — like eating the ice cream with your non-dominant hand. What this does is alter the action sequence and disrupts the learned body sequence that's driving the behavior, which allows your conscious mind to come back online and reassert control."

Northwest Florida Daily News: Novel police tactic puts drug markets out of business
Novel police tactic puts drug markets out of business:

"Police made dozens of undercover buys and videotaped many other drug purchases. They also did something unusual: they determined the "influentials" in the dealers' lives -- mothers, grandmothers, mentors -- and cultivated relationships with them. When police felt they had amassed ironclad legal cases, they did something even more striking: they refrained from arresting most of the suspected dealers. "
