Johns words just tired and lazy rhetoric In response to John Letfords column on Dundees drug problem, how wonderful it must be for him to see the world in simple black and white. John might want to consider that the work-shy hangers-on and self-inflicted people he claims to have no sympathy for are still someones son or daughter. Drug or alcohol dependency is a complex issue and the reasons behind why people become addicted are most often linked to wider, deeper issues. John calls for a drugs tsar with dedicated expertise, but at the same time tells us we dont need so-called experts to explain the difficulties of addiction. I would like to know what he thinks the tsar would be doing because John tells us he has no respect for those who defend addicts. Would the tsars approach therefore be one which judges, persecutes and punishes people? John offers no real answers, just more tired, lazy rhetoric. Jock Tamsons Bairn. Im a big fan of John Letford, but I couldnt agree with his hard line argument on drug addiction. If people dont agree with current efforts then what do the hard-liners suggest?

The buzz from coffee is a sign of drug dependency says Bristol professor

Posted: at 10:45 am

The morning pick-me-up coffee drinkers crave is actually a sign of drug dependency, according to a Bristol professor. Research from Bristol University shows that the buzz gained from a cup of coffee is actually a sign of it fighting caffeine withdrawal symptoms that have kicked in since the last cup. Professor of biological psychology and caffeine expert, Peter Rogers, told the Mail that people who regularly drink caffeine become dependent on it and struggle to function without it. They just don't function normally without the drug on board, he said. Azuza Terms: Valid until Friday 6th September Contact: 0117 9349903 Valid until: Friday, September 06 2013 If it's your first tea or coffee of the day, it gets you back to normal, but beyond that you don't get much more of a kick. Prof Rogers has studied coffee and its effects for more than 20 years and as a result of his findings he and his colleagues have given up caffeine themselves.

Roadside Drug Testing Proposed In West Virginia

Posted: June 17, 2013 at 6:42 am

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) June 17, 2013 According to the Associated Press (2/17), West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is proposing changing state law to allow police officers the legal right to test drivers for drugs, just as they test them for alcohol. Currently, the laws in West Virginia allow only for alcohol testing, but the new legislation proposed, would permit police to test drivers for drugs. In West Virginia, drugged driving problem is very significant. One in ten adults in the state have a drug problem and the testing would help authorities bring abusers to justice. About 1,000 drivers or 10% of those arrested for DUI, were arrested throughout the state last year on suspicion of drugged driving. Many of these drug abusers would have benefited by receiving the type of professional care provided by Harbor Village, a premier detox center located in Miami, Florida.

Posted: at 7:45 pm

West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 15, 2013 High school dropouts tend to have more time on their hands. Many times, using and abusing drugs or alcohol is one way they get involved with other activities. Unfortunately, these dropouts suffer serious life ramifications for their choices.
