Drug Abuse Resistance Education: The Effectiveness of DARE. By David J.

Drug Abuse Resistance Education: The Effectiveness of DARE

Hanson, Ph.D. The Drug Abuse Resistance Education program is used in nearly 80% of the school districts in the United States, in 54 other countries around the world, and is taught to 36,000,000 students each year. Therefore, it’s important to know if this highly popular program is effective in reducing alcohol and drug use. The Effectiveness of DARE Scientific evaluation studies have consistently shown that DARE is ineffective in reducing the use of alcohol and drugs and is sometimes even counterproductive -- worse than doing nothing.

Listening for the Logos - a study of reports of audible voices at high doses of psilocybin

Psychological Assistant Kaiser Permanente Medical Center Department of Psychiatry Chemical Dependency Recovery Program Vallejo, California E-mail: Horace.Beach@ncal.kaiperm.org For an updated list of psilocybin studies, click here There are reports that psilocybin mushrooms can engender a dialogue between the one who ingests them and a voice of unknown origin. The objective of the present study was to search for such reports, to look for differences between those who reported having heard a voice with psilocybin use and those who had not, and to characterize the voice. Overall, the results of this study suggest that what made the difference between hearing a voice or not with psilocybin was more about what people did, than who they were.

Strange Fires, Weird Smokes and Psychoactive Combustibles: Entheogens and Incense in Ancient Traditions - Journal of Psychoactive Drugs - Volume 42, Issue 4

While there is abundant literature on archaic uses of entheogenic plants, the literature on psychoactive incenses is quite deficient. From the tents of nomadic tribes to the small meditation rooms of Taoist adepts, the smoldering fumes of plants and resins have been used to invoke and banish and for shamanic travels since humanity mastered fire.
