#Drugoverdoses killed roughly 64,000 people in the #UnitedStates last year, according to the government’s own account of nationwide drug deaths to cover all of 2016. The vast majority of those deaths are from #opioid-based substances such as #fentanyl, #heroin, and prescription opioids. Now, a natural plant that is helping people kick their addictions to these dangerous opioids — #kratom — is under attack by the #FDA as it is threatening #bigpharma’s grip on the pain and addiction market.

On Tuesday, Scott Gottlieb, commissioner of the #FoodandDrugAdministration, issued a public health advisory on kratom, outlining concerns about its “deadly risks.” As HuffPo notes, Gottlieb’s statement outlined concerns about the herb’s potential for abuse and addiction. He claimed there was “clear data” on these harms, pointing to reports of 36 deaths associated with kratom-containing products and a tenfold increase in calls involving kratom to U.S. poison control centers from 2010 to 2015.

Although kratom users have touted the herb as a safe and effective treatment for conditions like chronic pain, anxiety and depression, as well as a replacement drug for opioid addiction, Gottlieb said there is “no reliable evidence to support” those applications, the HuffPo report continues. In particular, he called the use of kratom as an opioid substitute “extremely concerning” and suggested that it could actually “expand the #opioidepidemic.” However, the millions of people whose lives were saved by switching from opioids to Kratom beg to differ. Also, as you read below, it becomes entirely clear that Gottlieb’s assertion that there is “no reliable evidence to support” the beneficial effects of Kratom is a bold faced lie.

More importantly, these supposed “deaths” from Kratom are highly speculative as we’ve reported last year, the DEA attempted to claim that 15 deaths were attributed to Kratom. However, the American Kratom Association consumer group conducted an independent investigation and found that this was also #disinformation. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#WarOnDrugs #DrugWar #WarOnConsciousness #WarOnYou #SocialEngineering

LAST 3 SLIDES INCLUDE JAY-Z'S VIDEO ON THE HISTORY OF THE WAR ON DRUGS.

This month Meek Mill was sentenced to two to four years in prison for violating his probation. #FreeMeek hashtags have sprung up, and hundreds of his fans rallied near City Hall in Philadelphia to protest the ruling.

On the surface, this may look like the story of yet another criminal rapper who didn’t smarten up and is back where he started. But consider this: Meek was around 19 when he was convicted on charges relating to drug and gun possession, and he served an eight-month sentence. Now he’s 30, so he has been on probation for basically his entire adult life. For about a decade, he’s been stalked by a system that considers the slightest infraction a justification for locking him back inside...

Flávia Farnese, a neighborhood commonly referred to as “cracolândia.” “Cracolândia” is a derogatory term in Brazil for a neighborhood where drug use, like crack cocaine, is visible and many residents are homeless. ⠀ ⠀

The Maré favela has become a battleground in the war on drugs in Brazil. In March 2014, the favela was occupied by the army in order to prepare the arrival of the Pacification Police (UPP). But the UPP never arrived, the army has never fully left, and the Rio de Janeiro Military Police conducts regular enforcement actions within the favela. While everyone in Maré has been impacted by this occupation—which has resulted in armed clashes between the army and non-state actors, and includes human rights abuses—the homeless drug-using population have been among the most impacted and marginalized. ⠀

Substance abuse has always been a health issue. Why is it that we give some communities resources and help while other communities have had nothing but punishment and trauma?

Until recently there was no private toilet or shower for the residents of the makeshift homeless settlement on R. Flávia Farnese in Maré—one of the largest favelas in Rio de Janeiro. No access to a toilet or shower presented a lot of health and security problems for the residents, especially the women. With help from local residents, the local organization Redes da Maré built a public bathroom for the residents, including a toilet with a door, a shower, and water for washing clothes. ⠀

Redes da Maré focuses on helping residents determine their own needs—whether that’s a bathroom or a certificate of residence—and find ways to meet them. By making their rights, needs and abilities visible, Redes da Maré is recognizing all citizens of Maré—treating them all as neighbors with a stake in the community and something to offer.⠀⠀
