Category: News | Posted on Fri, October, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Drug Enforcement Administration has reversed a plan to temporarily ban a plant that some users suggest could be an alternative to powerful and addictive opioid painkillers.

In a notice set to be published Thursday in the Federal Register Thursday, the agency said it was withdrawing its plan to add two psychoactive components of the plant, known as kratom, to the list of the most dangerous drugs.

Advocates urging the DEA to leave kratom off its list of controlled substance have argued that it can be used as a nonaddictive painkiller or can help wean people off other, addictive pain medications.

Federal prosecutors took a pass on the case, but now Tooele county prosecutors say they will proceed.

It’s a tangled tale.

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

While it has long been the responsibility of law enforcement to handle situations involving people under the influence of drugs, which often has a violent outcome, the city of San Francisco is taking a more progressive approach to crisis incidents by employing a team of mental-health professionals to accompany police on these types of emergency calls.

Earlier last week, city officials announced the formation of a new five-member mental heath squad called the Crisis Intervention Specialists team, which will be deployed whenever police get called to deal with people who may be suffering from some kind of mental episode or under the influence of mind-altering substances.
