Why It Took Google So Long to End Shady Rehab Ads

How to Win a War on Drugs

Sept. 22, 2017 – Decades ago, the United States and Portugal both struggled with illicit drugs and took decisive action — in diametrically opposite directions. The U.S. cracked down vigorously, spending billions of dollars incarcerating drug users.

Ever since in Portugal, drug addiction has been treated more as a medical challenge than as a criminal justice issue. CONTINUED @ NYTimes.com

VIDEO INTERVIEW

Video Interview Editor/Publisher

Q: What are your thoughts on the heroin epidemic?

BUSCHEL: I don’t know if it’s an epidemic. According to the dictionary, it’s not. The definition of “epidemic” is not something that people do to themselves. It’s a disease that spreads from one person to another through contact. So I wouldn’t call it an epidemic. That’s a misnomer. It is a crisis. It is a national disgrace. It is a profound sickness in America that so many people are in so much pain that they’d rather die than face reality on a daily basis. That’s a tragedy. I mean I think it goes hand-in-hand with the downfall of … the American Dream is now finally over.

WELCOME TO THE MEN’S GROUP at REEL Recovery Film Festival Oct. 21 @ Laemmle NoHo

AI attended the screening of Welcome to the Men’s Group at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation in Los Angeles … I had a vague idea of the film based on the trailer. It promised to be cutting-edge, but wow, Welcome to the Men’s Group was so much more than I had expected!…What makes this film particularly interesting is its diverse cast and roles. The complex archetypical male is portrayed by extreme characters, which I learned to love as the film played out. (call for complimentary tickets, courtesy of LUMINANCE Treatment.)
