Esketamine for Treatment-Resistant Depression — First FDA-Approved Antidepressant in a New Class

Treating major depressive disorder remains an important challenge worldwide. The disorder impairs productivity, social functioning, and overall health, reducing life expectancy and burdening health care systems.1 Although many treatments exist, at least a third of patients do not have a response after two or more trials of antidepressant drugs and are considered to have treatment-resistant depression.2 Such patients have an increased risk of suicide relative to both the general population and patients with nonresistant major depressive disorder; at least a third of them attempt suicide.3 

The FDA recently approved the S-enantiomer of ketamine, esketamine, a rapidly acting drug shown to be effective in patients with treatment-resistant depression.

Impossible to escape: The need for stronger restrictions on the placement of alcohol marketing in Australia

The report, Impossible to escape: found almost two-thirds of complaints made to the Alcohol Advertising Review Board (AARB) over the past seven years had raised concerns about the placement of alcohol marketing in Australia. Of the 760 placement-related complaints, almost 40% raised concerns that the advertisements were placed where young people were likely to be exposed or with content that would appeal to them. The report highlights the need for governments to introduce stronger restrictions to better protect children and young people from exposure to alcohol marketing.

The False Arguments for Legal Marijuana

The rationale for legalization varies, from achieving “social justice” (even though racial disparities in arrests persist in legalized states like Colorado or Washington) to more blatant appeals to greed. The global legal market has been estimated at $9.5 billion for 2017, with investor testimonials projecting future markets at values between $300 and $500 billion in a few short years.

Colorado: Largest Marijuana Bust in State History – AND WEED IS FULLY LEGAL HERE!!! Three Markets Now In Play! (Cannabis Chaos Continues!)

Friday 24th May 2019, Colorado law enforcement and federal authorities announced they have successfully completed the largest marijuana bust in state history. The bust resulted in the seizure of over 80,000 marijuana plants, 4,500 pounds of "finished marijuana products," and over $2.1 million in cash. 
"Colorado has become the epicenter of black-market marijuana in the United States," said Jason Dunn, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado in a press conference Friday. "We want people to know these grow operations are not occurring in abandoned houses or poorer parts of the metro area. These are happening in middle- and upper-class neighborhoods, [where] many of us live and raise families."

The Need for Federal Regulation of Marijuana Marketing
The Need for Regulation:

It is critical that regulators investigate these problematic marketing practices across all marijuana brands, not just MedMen, to ensure that health claims are independently verified and youth are protected from marijuana marketing. Precedent exists for federal action to regulate MedMen’s national marketing strategy because the responsibility to regulate “products containing cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds” currently rests with the FDA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Public Health Service Act.

The Fence or The Ambulance?
  Marijuana’s Ecological Impact

“Most people have been conned into using the word ‘overdose’ regarding illicit drugs! No such thing! Why? Because it clearly implies there is a 'safe' dose which can be taken - and everyone knows that's a lie. The same goes for the words 'use' and abuse'. Those terms can only be applied to prescribed pharmaceuticals because they have a prescribed safe dose. I have asked each jurisdiction in Australia if the legal amount of alcohol when driving, up to 0.49, is considered safe for driving. All said no - they would not state that!”
