    Thanks for the info. On my to do list for today!

    Just a quick bit of searching yielded some info for those who want to write the board-- here are some links:


    Here's a link from the Scientology site clearly showing this is a Scientology initiative.

    Just in case anyone wants to see the booklet in question:

    Here is an article about Los Cruces being fooled:
    "Mayor abandons anti-drug program affiliated with Church of Scientology

    Las Cruces Sun-News/December 7, 2008

    By Ashley Meeks

    Las Cruces - The city is immediately ending an anti-drug program aimed at third-graders after it was revealed it was created and bankrolled by the Church of Scientology.

    The "Drug-Free Marshal" program, started in late November, had only been presented to five schools but was intended to be promoted eventually among all third-graders in the Las Cruces Public Schools.

    Mayor Ken Miyagishima apologized Saturday and said it was not his intention to promote the religion. The mayor said he was approached this summer by Richard Henley, of Foundation for a Drug-Free World, who showed him a pamphlet adorned with the seals of El Paso, Española, the Rio Arriba County Sheriff's Department and the Horizon City, Texas, and Socorro, Texas, Police Departments and asked if the city would "support eradicating drug use in the community."

    In small type at the bottom, the pamphlet is copyrighted by Foundation for a Drug-Free World, Narconon and Association for Better Living and Education, all Scientology programs.

    "It's my fault for not checking it out," Miyagishima said. "This is something that I have to put an end to, this portion of it, since it was brought up to me."

    Here's the Ca SOS corporate info, note their status is "suspended". This means they either did not file an annual report, have unpaid taxes or have some kind of penalty due. They cannot legally do business in California.
    Entity Name: FOUNDATION FOR A DRUG-FREE WORLD
    Entity Number: C2844723
    Date Filed: 10/11/2006

    Here is a link from Scientology site that explains that the secular programs seek to use L Ron Hubbard's technologies:

    HOW ARE SECULAR PROGRAMS BASED ON
    L. RON HUBBARD’S TECHNOLOGY COORDINATED?
    They are coordinated by the Association for Better Living and Education (ABLE), an international nonprofit public benefit corporation dedicated to social betterment.

    Formed in 1988, ABLE is empowered to authorize qualified social betterment groups to use L. Ron Hubbard’s technologies in purely secular, charitable and educational activities. ABLE is also charged with the important responsibility of ensuring that this technology is made known and available to anyone who needs it and that the organizations authorized to utilize the technology under the social betterment trademarks are doing so correctly.

    http://www.scientology.org/faq/scie...-of-l-ron-hubbard-based-secular-programs.html


    The link to their page which shows their hidden agenda:

    "Scientologists have further spotlighted and worked to outlaw the enforced drugging of schoolchildren, the psychiatric brutalities of electric shock and lobotomy, and biological warfare experiments. "

    http://www.scientology.org/faq/scientology-in-society/examples-of-scientologists-doing-good.html

    And, if you need some inspiration and talking points, here is an editorial from a local newspaper in WY that is well written and makes a great argument:

    I spent $700/month in the cult for almost 20 years. When I got out I spent $700/month at the marijuana dispensaries in the beginning. Pot was way more fun.

    It wasn't all herb. At the clubs you can get all kinds of edibles with weed in it. Pot sodas and cookies and stuff. My favorite when I escaped was honey bud. A nice bud dipped in hash oil. I would get so much case gain with that stuff.

    They are also afraid of the effectiveness of aspirin. Which is why they say you can't be in session or on course for a WEEK if you take an aspirin.

    Very afraid.

    Funny you should say that...

    I knew personally a gent who smoked weed all the way up to Clear, father of a well-known scilon. He said, "No one told me I couldn't, so I just did it!". I think he also said he was made to do his "drug-handling" and Grades again.

    Not sure if it's true, but he had nothing to gain by telling me, both of us being in the cult at the time.

    Smoking some herb got me to the point where I asked, "WTF am I doing here?" and GTFO. Maybe that fellow planted the seed, as it were ;)

    Any mention of Scientology, ABLE, RTC or any other Scilon front group has been excised from this pamphlet. Even in the fine print or the copyrights. It is copyrighted 2008 by "Foundation for a Drug-Free World," a California corporation whose status has been suspended by the state of California.

  26. anonymous612 Member

    Noticed something interesting here. This pamphlet and the ones I have are very clearly from the same series and publishing run. Exact same layout, same phrasing, word for word identical in many places, same imagery and scheme...

    But compare the back pages, with the copyright info. Again, these books, plus the pot one, are all very very clearly from the same series.

    Here's the painkillers one.

    HCOla.jpg

    Compare to the prescription drugs one, which appears to be basically identical to the marijuana one:

    dvIrIl.jpg

    And compare to the drugs in general one, which for no apparent reason is copyrighted to Narconon. EDIT: I just noticed I have two different versions of this packet with two different sets of cover art. The second one's back is identical to the prescription and pot one. So what, the same packet is copyrighted to two supposedly different organizations? Yeah that doesn't seem like bullshit at all...

    IIRC (and I may be wrong) those pamphlets are loot from the bag when we held up a "Dispose of unwanted Scientology materials here" sign outside the Scilon Christmas fair. Greatest idea EVER.

  29. rickybobby Member

    Actually, the third one is still copyrighted Foundation for a Drug Free World and was not copyrighted by Narconon; Narconon is only mentioned in the footer because it is mentioned in the body of the pamphlet. They are simply noting that Narconon itself is a trademark as a way of legally protecting that trademark.

    My take on this is that they reprinted these things in 2008 to sanitize them and divorce them from Scientology to better fly under the radar. I guess Anonymous made it uncomfortable for these front groups to be associated with Scientology.

    Keep looking at these copyrights-- I am not professionally knowledgeable in these things, but I do not believe they can legally copyright anything if their corporate status is suspended. They cannot legally do business in the State of California-- and I am assuming that if they engage in activities that include payment for services, that will qualify as doing business, and we can rat them out to the State. My feeling is that they did not want to file the required Annual Report, since that would become public record ripe for pooning.

    And yes, 612, collecting their unwanted materials was indeed a stroke of genius.

    I started going through this thing for inaccuracies but the whole thing is weird, blaming weed for everything from The Stoopids to Leukemia. Their cites are articles and news broadcasts, and we know how accurate those can be. Anyway, weak documentation, that school board should know better. Especially considering the Source!

    The painkillers one is a hoot. I like where it subtly claims that medicine doesn't do anything:
    And then there's the part that's all "Hey, you know who invented methadone? NAZIS."

    Ooh, and then there's the "PAINKILLERS CAUSE ENGRAMS" part.
    **other than poisoning and killing you horribly as discussed earlier in the booklet.
    Or, you know, using them as safely prescribed by a medical professional.

    The rest of the booklet:
    Blah blah blah pages of LRH quotes blah blah Narconon plug blah talk your problems over with a minister (BUT NOT A SHRINK OMG NO) blah blah if you get addicted call Narconon.

    Funny how Scientology tries to enforece the Harry J. Anslinger and "Reefer Madness" point of view.

    I'll betcha more than a few of those parents who got the flyers smoke a little weed now and again.

    dere cult: half the world smokes pot and doesn't feel there's anything wrong with it. The other half mostly couldn't care less. Come to present time.

    The drugs in general book very strongly implies pot will make you suicidal, outright claims it causes intense violence and theft, and repeatedly quotes marijuana statistics and cocaine statistics right next to each other to draw similarities between them. Also there's a quote here of a guy describing getting "toxic psychosis" from pot to the point where he was hearing voices in his head for six months until it left him homeless living in a cardboard box.

    I see the problem. Scientology confused marijuana with schizophrenia.

    Ooh, Narconon plug two pages in, someone's stepping up their game...oh lol, and a tone scale reference! And a plug for Clear Body, Clear Mind and the Purification Rundown. And in the "Real Solutions to Drugs" chapter, I swear, they only list one solution. L. Ron Hubbard.

    Scientology-Supported Publications Used in Fight Against Teen Painkiller Abuse

    With 10 percent of teens surveyed admitting they abuse over the counter medications, the Truth About Drugs program, supported by the Church of Scientology, offers hope to stem problem

    Scientology-supported Truth About Drugs booklets help teens avoid addiction to painkillers and other drugs of choice
    [IMG]The real-life stories captured the attention of all the students.” Another found the data to be “real, not just ‘textbook’ info.[IMG]
    Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
    According to a recent University of Cincinnati nationwide survey of 138,000 adolescents, one in every 30 teens uses painkillers to get high.
    Painkillers are covered extensively in the Truth About Drugs (http://bit.ly/tad0035prw) -- scilon links, sock up, etc, drug education and prevention initiative supported by the Church of Scientology, which includes a series of 13 educational booklets. Drawing on 25 years of experience in drug prevention, the booklets effectively communicate to teens and young adults the harsh reality of drug abuse.
    The series includes an overview and 12 additional booklets (http://bit.ly/tadbooklet0035prw) -- scilon links, sock up, etc, one on each of the most commonly abused drugs: painkillers, prescription drugs, marijuana, alcohol, Ecstasy, cocaine, crack cocaine, crystal meth, inhalants, heroin, LSD, and Ritalin.
    They provide facts and statistics, describe how drugs work, and cover the mental and physical short-term and long-term effects the drugs create.
    Each booklet contains firsthand accounts from former users, talking about the misery of life on drugs. Experience and surveys show that teens and young adults are most likely to listen to their peers.
    Educators, police, religious leaders, community and youth groups use these booklets in their drug education and crime prevention endeavors, finding them an invaluable tool to communicate the dangers of drugs.
    A U.S. middle-school teacher commented, “The real-life stories captured the attention of all the students.” Another found the data to be “real, not just ‘textbook’ info.” A police officer serving as a school resource officer in Oregon said the materials are “priceless in painting a real picture of the dangers of the drug world for the students.”
    From reading the booklets, students realize that some of the unexplained mental and physiological changes they have experienced came from the drugs they have used. They are often surprised to find how much they didn’t know about various drugs.
    Volunteers have distributed more than 50 million Truth About Drugs booklets (http://bit.ly/tadbooklet0035prw) -- scilon links, sock up, etc in 20 languages. These fact-filled booklets inform and empower teens and young adults to make their own decisions to live drug-free.
    The Church of Scientology has published a new brochure, Scientology: How We Help—The Truth About Drugs, Creating a Drug-Free World, to meet requests for more information about the drug education and prevention initiative it supports. To learn more or to read a copy of the brochure, visit the Scientology website (http://bit.ly/tad0035prw) at http://www.scientology.org/antidrug. -- scilon links, sock up, etc
    About How We Help—the Truth About Drugs, Creating a Drug-Free World
    Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “The planet has hit a barrier which prevents any widespread social progress—drugs and other biochemical substances. These can put people into a condition which not only prohibits and destroys physical health but which can prevent any stable advancement in mental or spiritual well-being.”
    The Church of Scientology supports the Truth About Drugs, one of the world’s largest nongovernmental drug education and prevention campaigns. It has been conclusively proven that when young people are provided with the truth about drugs—factual information on what drugs are and what they do—usage rates drop commensurately.
