A documentary about the use of the controversial substance ibogaine for the treatment of addiction. Ibogaine is a substance that is derived from an African plant, which is used during initiations of the Bwiti culture in Gabon.
They had a piece on the HBO show "Vice" last night about the use of this as a cure for addiction. It was interesting. I had heard alittle about this and the very serious possible good results that there were claims for of this going back years, but nothing recently. The idea that the fanatical u.s government is so against this is nothing short of obscene considering the facts of addiction and the very poor outcomes of most pathetic excuses for treatments. Shame based, "faith" based... Goes to show how little this sad sick culture really cares about dealing with real issues in any kind of serious mature way.
That’s the way with any new idea. Takes the hoople heads time to adjust.
