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?
