Veteran pot activist sees ibogaine as plant ally in addiction fight
The principle stumbling block to getting ibogaine everywhere is getting local approval to be administered as a medicine…ibogaine is 10 times safer than continuing to use, and 5 times safer than lifetime methadone.
Unfortunately the bureaucratic imperative of the DEA is to extend US style prohibition everywhere, so we’re in danger of one country after another being picked after another by a creeping ibogaine ban, even though ibogaine is 10 times safer than continuing to use, and 5 times safer than lifetime methadone. Today it remains legal by prescription in New Zealand, South Africa and Sao Paulo state in Brazil. There are 30 clinics in Mexico, alone, plus Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Brazil, Argentina, S.A. of course, Spain, Czech Republic, Cryprus, Nepal, Thailand, Australia and N.Z., Serbia and Russia.
