Street Methamphetamines

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from International Business Times): “In the massive economic misery that has engulfed Greece, the people at the very bottom of Greek society – namely, the homeless of cities like Athens -are being decimated by a cheap new drug called sisa, which is described as a kind of ‘cocaine for the poor.’ …

“Bizarrely, no one is quite sure what all the ingredients are in sisa, although methamphetamine is definitely a core component.

“But at only one or two euros ($1.29 to $2.58) per hit, it’s an attractive buy for the poor and/or homeless seeking any temporary escape from grim realities. …

“… the high from sisa is accompanied by dreadful after-effects, including insomnia, delusions, heart attacks and aggressive behavior. Other reported side effects are anorexia, palpitations and anxiety.

“‘It’s often compared with cocaine … It’s the drug of the streets, produced in home-based laboratories.’ …

“ noted that, as more drug addicts are forced into prostitution, the negative effects of sisa use are spreading into mainstream Greek society.”

My Comment: We will see this all over Europe, if they don’t come to their senses. As Mark Twain said about Tom Sawyer that “he would be President, yet, if he escaped hanging.” So, the world has two options for the future.
