    [Scandump] UK CoS Anti-Drug 'Info' Booklets

    [Note to Mods: Feel free to move this to Education and Research or the appropriate subforum after a few days, just putting this up in General Discussion for mass viewing for now.]

    Managed to snag two of the anti-drug booklets being offered at a London centre the other day. Scanned for great justice.

    BE WARNED: booklets contain ample measures of 'fact' and sources cleverly mixed with liberal doses of bullcrap. In other words, not all the statistics quoted are fabrications (surprisingly enough!), but keep an eye out for those yummy nuggets of pseudoscience tucked neatly in all the text. :text:

    Zip File (Joints)[/url:3ehlwbyf]

    Note that the last four pages of both booklets are pretty much identical. Also note that the only time you'll ever see Hubbard mentioned, apart from the tiny credits on the back, is on page 22:

    as well as an ad for Narconon a couple of lines after. Other highlights include lines like "drugs are essentially poisons".

    Read, be informed, discuss. 8) On a related note, this
    1999 LA Times article[/url:3ehlwbyf] documents the Ritalin controversy as 'triggered almost single-handedly by the Scientology movement'.

    I love it how they don't give the actual names of the stimulants (Concerta, and the other) I wonder why that is? maybe because they are far from cocaine.

    I'd make an extra page and staple it in all the booklets if I ever saw those things telling them the real truth.

    LOSS OF APPETITE IS NOT THE SAME AS ANOREXIA.

    WTF, a nurse can't hand these out, you need a prescription from a psychiatrist before you even get to look at them ffs.

    Yes it is. Chemo patients get anorexia. Then they finish chemo and they get better. People with eating disorders get anorexia nervosa. Medically, all anorexia means is loss of appetite. But it's absolutely not the same as the nervosa disorder.

    "But facts have proved this to many times for anyone to be fooled."

    Hence the need for a leaflet?

    Hoshit my scans got macro'ed. I feel.... proud, somehow. :xenu:

    In this case, however, it seems more like an attempt to saddle it with the same connotations as anorexia nervosa. That way they'll probably be able to point at the rampant trend of teenage girls starving themselves and say LOOK LOOK THE DRUGS ARE DOING THAT we can help!! :roll:

    Yes, the whole (eating disorder) addition was pretty crappy. Loss of appetite comes with any stimulant, caffeine to crack, and many kids actually eat better because they sit at the table longer. To say that anyone who suffers from anorexia also suffers an ed is just flat out stupid.

    Of course, to know the difference, you just may have to talk to someone who knows psychology. Maybe they should look into that. :idea:
