Church of Scientology Reaches Out to Help End the Drug Overdose Crisis

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Just last week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced more than 100,000 people died of drug overdoses in the United States during the 12-month period ending April 2021. The Church of Scientology International urges concerned parents, educators and community leaders to take action against the "other pandemic" with drug education and prevention.

The Church is making fact-based drug education materials and courses available free of charge to anyone wishing to help turn around what the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is calling "a national crisis" that "knows no geographical boundaries."

Drawing on five decades in the field of drug education and prevention, the Church of Scientology developed the Truth About Drugs, now one of the world's largest nongovernmental drug information and prevention initiatives. In 2006, Foundation for a Drug-Free World, a secular nonprofit corporation, was formed to serve as the primary distributor of the educational materials and to develop new materials to meet the challenge of continually changing drug trends.

The Foundation today oversees the Truth About Drugs campaign and coordinates an international network of volunteers brought together by their common purpose to create a drug-free world.

The Foundation has grown to a network of thousands of volunteers in more than 200 chapters around the world and partnerships with some 1,800 groups and organizations.

The Scientology Network original series Voices for Humanity documents the kind of change this initiative is accomplishing:

* In San Diego, California, Dr. Beatriz Villarreal uses the initiative to combat drug abuse by educating families on the dangers of drugs.

* In his native Massachusetts and throughout the U.S. Darren Tessitore works with driver's education programs to take action against drug-related accidents, vital with traffic deaths clocking in at 20,160 in the first six months of 2021-18.4 percent higher than last year.

* In New York City, the father and daughter team Dr. Bernard and Meghan Fialkoff have reached thousands of inner city schoolchildren with the Truth About Drugs.

* And from Colombia to Malaysia, South Africa to the Philippines and Kenya to India, drug prevention activists are empowering generations of youth with an initiative that continues to grow exponentially at the grassroots level.

All this to say there is effective action parents, educators and community leaders can take to protect their children, communities and the next generation from drug abuse and addiction. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, "Prevention strategies based on scientific evidence working with families, schools, and communities can ensure that children and youth, especially the most marginalized and poor, grow and stay healthy and safe into adulthood and old age. For every dollar spent on prevention, at least ten can be saved in future health, social and crime costs."

Learn more about the Truth About Drugs initiative and Foundation for a Drug-Free World on the Scientology Network.

Since launching with a special episode featuring Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige, Scientology Network has been viewed in 240 countries and territories worldwide in 17 languages. Broadcast from Scientology Media Productions, the Church's global media center in Los Angeles, the Scientology Network is available on DIRECTV Channel 320 and can be streamed at, on mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.

Good and SMART America First Republican Patriot announces primary campaign run for West Virginia’s 1st District against a ‘sellout loser RINO’

WHEELING, W.Va. -- Pro-Cannabis Republican Candidate for Congress, Craig "X" Roberts (, The General Pharmer, was sitting on his hotel balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea when an FBI agent from Wheeling West Virginia called his cell phone. The agent wanted to know about January 6 insurrection and the events that took place at the U.S. Capitol. The first thing the FBI agent said was, "You are not in trouble, and you don't have to talk to me if you don't want." Telling someone they are not in trouble takes the pressure off.

The Candidate spoke about his experiences in Washington D.C. Tucker Carlson's report "The Purge" was similar to what Roberts saw. That was why he was moving to Mexico. "I don't think it is safe or stable to live in a country where two guys are claiming to be President at the same time," he told the FBI agent, because to this day "Trump has not conceded the election claiming fraud as the only reason for Brandon's victory. As the father of young children, I think it is best for my family to move to Mexico."

Roberts commented, "All the once stable institutions of America are now dividing the people against each other. How is that a good idea?" One week ago, President Trump, who Roberts believes won the election, asked American First Republican Patriots to run against 13 "sellout loser RINOs" who voted with the Democrat Party on "a fake infrastructure bill" (only 11% for structural improvements).

Candidate Roberts said regarding January 6, "I went there that day with two girl friends who had never been to D.C. We weren't part of any group." Answering that because the agent asked, "I still think the election was stolen, but I am not going to take up arms against the current regime. I trust the American people to do the right thing and correct the election problem."

West Virginia's 1st District Congressional Candidate Roberts found Wheeling because he saw a sign on Highway 70, "Wheeling Marsh Stogies." After being a reoccurring-regular on the TV show "Weeds," working for Mike Tyson's cannabis company and producing shows for the Cali Plug Studios that included a High Times show staring Jenae Alt, it was hard to imagine moving to the Ohio Valley in West Virginia, but the "stogie sign" was an omen.

"In 2017, when I was an online English teacher with students in China, I started having memorable dreams of working with President Trump. I didn't vote for him, but I love his America First agenda, so I used to fall asleep listening to his speeches." Roberts was certain that this was the cause of his Trump dreams.

"When I heard Trump ask for SMART Republicans to primary these traitorous RINOs I decided to look if one of them was in my District. I want my dream of working with Trump to come true." What are the odds with 435 Congresspeople that Candidate Roberts would have moved to the District of a RINO? Is Mr. Roberts going to Washington?

Tim Robbins predicted the "conservative rebel" in his hit film, "Bob Roberts." Now, Roberts, who has appeared in 15 cannabis films including "Haunted House of Chronic," "How Weed Won the West," "American Drug War" and "Totally Baked" to name a few becoming the living embodiment of the Conservative Rebel. He is pro-gun like Ted Nugent but looks more like Phil Robertson from "Duck Dynasty" than a politician.

"I agree with President Trump. The U.S. was attacked worse than Pearl Harbor or 911. This is Biblical because in my church we teach Fauci is the Rider on the White Horse of Revelation 6:2," Roberts confessed. "I know the press will beat me up for this, but it is what I truly think. Besides torturing dogs, Fauci a false healer wearing a white lab coat as cover for conquering. He conquered the world with two things, the Corona, and a common cloth - a bow (GK tocson) - you can't make this up!"

Roberts taught in Temple 420 that China and the U.S. are in an actual war even though it is undeclared. "This as a Biblical struggle between good and evil, an ideological war that I have been engaged in for a long time." The Candidate calls himself a veteran of the Drug War. "My friend named me the General Pharmer because of my militant stance for hemp. I was an influencer before the Internet and there was such a word. I think I am one of the reasons the Chinese government banned Americans as online English teachers," The Pastor Candidate laughed. "I taught their children to love guns, Jesus and freedom as I taught them English. When elected to Congress I'll absolutely put America First."

Blockchain Meets Agriculture to Improve Soil and Air Quality

CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Two innovative Cheyenne-based companies, the agricultural Carbon Asset Network and blockchain consultancy group Ember Labs have joined forces to create the new pathway for carbon sequestration and improving air quality by using the power of blockchain. This new model is designed to be a private enterprise alternative to Cap and Trade methods, which have not proved successful since its inception in 2009.

"Blockchain, combined with tokenization, empowers a model where we all can be successful in cleaning carbon out of our air by improving soil health," says Ian Alexander, principal of Ember Labs. "It's time to put that ability into the hands of ESG oriented businesses, agriculturists, land managers of any kind, and the everyday people wanting to help our environment. The desire to do this is not new. What we have designed is the ability to streamline and make the process for a Total Ecological Solution actually work."

The Carbon Asset Network joins with nonprofit Synergy for Ecological Solutions to provide grants which allow land managers to take action for a Total Ecological Solution through soil health. Often these new methods increase operating costs and capital investment. The grants allow the land managers to take action right away to maximize soil health.

As soil becomes healthier, there is more oxygen released to the air, and more carbon pulled into the roots and soil (carbon sequestration) through the natural process of photosynthesis. Land managers include not only those in the agriculture industry, but managers of parks, golf courses, undeveloped land, or anyone who manages open land.

"It's actually very simple," says John Robitaille, Director of Carbon Asset Network. "Nature has its own way to increase air quality and that's photosynthesis. Working with Ember Labs, we have created a method utilizing blockchain that simply makes this feasible and effective in a private enterprise scenario, which lets those who want to help both our soils and our air quality. The whole process turns on simply cooperating with Nature. We say it's climate wellness through soil health."

Many air quality programs are designed to eliminate emissions from fossil fuel. This new method, however, is designed to take any carbon out of the air immediately and is not reliant on adoption of alternative energy sources so that the air can improve sooner rather than later.

The summit is open to everybody. Health and wellness are universal concerns and ultimately, a global undertaking. But we need to start somewhere and where better to start than ourselves, our family and our community?"

Pre-pandemic, many people may not have been serious about their health and wellness, preferring to roll the dice with unhealthy life choices. Now, it's acknowledged as an important tool to promote longevity and has, in fact, surfaced as a necessity in the current pandemic reality.
