Poor Jordan.  I disagree with much of what this fucknut promulgates, but I wouldn't wish this on anyone:

She said his withdrawal was “horrific,” worse than anything she had ever heard about. She said Russian doctors are not influenced by pharmaceutical companies to treat the side-effects of one drug with more drugs, and that they “have the guts to medically detox someone from benzodiazepines.”

Well that makes sense. When you feel the need to take responsibility for your actions, and you really need to be called to account for your behavior, you head to Moscow for detox. I could not think of anything more horrible, they have specialized for a century or more with their clinics in inflicting the most pain possible. Not that it helps society get better, but they have a system of social accountability fine tuned to the hilt.

Where is that great book I read in the 1990s on the cultures of alcohol around the world? The author got chummy on the international conference circuit with the bedraggled, portly, red faced psychiatrist who heads up the largest inpatient clinic in Moscow. And then went there to see what it was like. The deprivation, the anti-alcohol drug administration regime (didn't the Russians invent the anti-alcohol drugs?), the hospital raising cash by running the liquor store at the end of the block, the inmates (um, patients) lowering down buckets out of high windows to retrieve their booze bought by relatives, The same relatives fawning over the hospital head in his office, genuinely thankful that he gave their husband or pop  a bed instead of having to buy them a coffin. All along the  said same head psychiatrist accepting bottle after bottle of booze offered in tribute by the stream of relatives, bought from from his own hospital owned gift shop (corner liquor store)  till the office closet was overflowing.

The Old White Uptight Brigade needs to turn their phony indignity away from Pot and aim it directly at the American Pharmaceutical Industry.

It sounds like he has taken his own advice and actualized the first step out.

Yeah, good point.  We usually piss in the wounds of these "elite" assholes that find themselves having the chickens come home to roost.

I'm old.  I admit it.  I have been forgiving my own fuckwits lately as well.  Hard for me to hold a grudge when someone is hurting now days.
Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa.

I'd rather they would  both have faded into obscurity, but if they keep making that face it's going to stick.
