Questions for the "War on
The failure to make use of ibogaine, a proven treatment for addictions
to heroin, cocaine, alcohol, nicotine, and other addictive substances, raises a
number of questions that need to be answered by appropriate parties:
- Why has there been so little public attention given to the ibogaine
alternative to treatment for drug addiction, especially by public figures?
- Why has the FDA made ibogaine a Schedule 2 controlled substance when
it is a natural herb extract, is not addicitve, and has no reported side
effects other than a brief mild hallucinatory effect and a lasting cure for
physical addiction to a wide array of substances?
- Why do addiction rehabilitation clinics continue to charge huge fees
for treatments with a low probability of success when, for much less money, the
patients could be sent to ibogaine clinics abroad where the great majority of
them could be cured with a single treatment in less than 24 hours?
- Why don't law enforcement officials and the courts give persons found
to be addicted to substances the alternative of ibogaine treatment?
- Why don't addiction support groups themselves not help addicts seek
ibogaine treatment abroad and thus free their acarce resouces to treat the
small number of drug-injured persons that would remain after such
- Why don't opponents of public corruption, which is largely driven by
narcotics trafficking, promote alternatives like ibogaine that would end the
corruption by ending the addiction?
- Why don't the political parties make it an issue to encourage
research, development and treatment with effective addiction treatments, both
ibogaine and others that might be developed?
- Why aren't ibocaine clinics being set up all along the U.S. border
with prominent advertising to help people find them?
- Could resistance to ibogaine treatment be from a dark alliance
between narcotics traffickers and government officials that benefit from
addiction and the market for addictive substances?
