New York's Worst Drug Sites - Persistent Markets of Death Drug trafficking has become so open and pervasive in parts of New York City that, in some neighborhoods, it seems that everyone knows exactly where it is going on and who is taking part in it. But getting rid of it is another matter. In interviews with prosecutors, local politicians and community organizers, a dozen drug-dealing locations were identified as some of the worst in the city. They range from fortress-like apartments in Washington Heights to shadowy doorways in a Staten Island housing project. As summer approaches, these areas turn into little more than drug bazaars. Groups of customers move through a network of spotters, steerers and bodyguards posted outside and inside buildings known throughout the neighborhoods as drug outlets. Many of the drug dealers ply their trade brazenly, with little fear of arrest. The police say that knowing about a drug site is very different from being able to close it down. In any case, narcotics seem a part of city life as never before.
Why Intelligent People Use More Drugs The human consumption of psychoactive drugs , such as marijuana , cocaine , and heroin, is of even more recent historical origin than the human consumption of alcohol or tobacco, so the Hypothesis would predict that more intelligent people use more drugs more frequently than less intelligent individuals. The use of opium dates back to about 5,000 years ago, and the earliest reference to the pharmacological use of cannabis is in a book written in 2737 BC by the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung. Opium and cannabis are the only “natural” (agricultural) psychoactive drugs. Other psychoactive drugs are “chemical” (pharmacological); they require modern chemistry to manufacture, and are therefore of much more recent origin. Given their extremely recent origin and thus evolutionary novelty, the Hypothesis would predict that more intelligent individuals are more likely to consume all types of psychoactive drugs than less intelligent individuals.

Judith Ann Braun's Fingers Are Magical With an art career spanning more than three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of her artistic musculature. She began as a self-described “realistic figure painter,” and worked through the struggles common to anyone who endeavors upon an artistic pursuit, that of searching for one’s own voice in the chosen medium. Fast forward to the 21st century where the evolution of Braun’s work has brought us to the Fingerings series, a collection of charcoal dust landscapes and abstracts “painted” using not brushes but her fingertips. Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by the patterns she follows in a number of the Fingerings pieces as well as work in the Symmetrical Procedures collection.

MPP Releases 'Top 50 Most Influential Marijuana Users' To recognize the rising visibility and importance of marijuana policy reform, the Marijuana Policy Project on Thursday released its first annual "Top 50 Most Influential Marijuana Users" list. This collection, MPP says, spans multiple public spheres and illustrates the pervasiveness of marijuana use across all socio-economic groups (although from where we sit it seems to heavily favor pre-fab pop icons). The people on this list have become successful and influential while also being marijuana users, with the greatest threat to that achievement being the possibility of arrest, according to MPP. "In order to have qualified for the list, each individual must (1) have tried marijuana at least once, (2) be alive, and (3) be living in the U.S. or be a U.S. citizen," said Morgan Fox, MPP communications manager. "In sum, we're not concerned with an individual's popularity, or even whether he or she supports marijuana policy reform," Fox said. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. More links from around the web!
Illegal drug trade International drug routes. History Chinese edicts against opium smoking were made in 1729, 1796 and 1800. Addictive drugs were prohibited in the west in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. An illegal drug trade emerged in the early 19th century. In 1868, as the result of the increased use of opium, the UK restricted the sale of opium in Britain by implementing the 1868 Pharmacy Act . In the United States, control remained a state responsibility until the introduction of the Harrison Act in 1914, following the passing of the International Opium Convention in 1912. Between 1920 and 1933, alcohol was banned in the United States. Since drugs traded on the black market can provide a secretive source of money, they have long been used by organizations such as the U.S. Legal penalties Drug trafficking is widely regarded as the most serious of drug offenses around the world.

Conoce tu sustancia psicoactiva (INFOGRÁFICO) (clic en la imagen para verla en tamaño completo) La organización civil Espolea A.C. es de las pocas en México que se ha dedicado al trabajo en investigación y difusión de nuevas políticas de drogas, entre las que se incluye la Reducción de Daños (Harm Reduction en inglés), enfoque surgido a mediados de los años 80’s como una alternativa al prohibicionismo de drogas, o el enfoque clásico, cuyas campañas de prevención se concentran en la censura sobre cualquier tipo de información respecto a las tipologías y efectos de las drogas consideradas ilegales, así como en la distribución masiva de información visual y slogans que depositan en la imagen de las drogas una suerte de “espíritu maligno” capaz de pervertir los valores de la sociedad. En la punta de cada pico encontramos a las sustancias cuyos efectos son más representativos de cada familia. Al final de la gráfica podemos encontrar una breve descripción de todas las drogas citadas en la imagen, acomodadas también por sus efectos.
