Sage's Army, founded in March 2012 by Carmen Capozzi following the overdose death of his 20-year-old son, Sage, is dedicated to offering programs and services designed to raise awareness of all types of drug abuse and to compassionately support those seeking recovery. Though Sage’s Army provides various programs and services designed to promote awareness, compassion and action in the community, the organization’s core message is a simple one. Drugs do not discriminate. Addiction will touch the lives of many, and we all have an obligation to listen to those in need and support their recovery without prejudice or discrimination. Sage’s Army supporters do not judge, turn away or hide in shame. They fight the epidemic through understanding how addiction affects the lives of those they care about and they get involved – providing education, resources, encouragement and love.

The recent South Carolina Shooting lets us know the seriousness of the drugs that are in people's bodies given by legal drug pushers such as big name pharmaceuticals. What do they know that they will not tell. Al Sharpton is to arrive in Charleston, S.C., no further racial tension is needed...teach Jesus. News, that You can Use as it relates to the Bible and End Times.
Many people are aware of dangers of illegal drugs. We've all heard stories of drug overdoses and people losing everything because of their addiction to these dangerous narcotics. Unfortunately, many people don't realize that LEGAL drugs can be just as dangerous a the illegal ones! Yes they can be purchased at the local pharmacy, but they also have their risks!
A person can become addicted to some legal drugs as easily as they can illegal drugs. In my upcoming book The 3 Pillars of Strength: Increasing Your Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Fitness" I talk about this problem in great detail. Join me here on BlogTalk radio and lets discuss talk the dangers of legal drug addiction!

More drugs, less crime and addiction? Dr. Michael Reznicek, author of Blowing Smoke: Rethinking the War on Drugs, thinks so. In his controversial book he argues that the country should return to a simpler a time, a time pre-Harrison Narcotics Tax Act of 1914, a time when everything was legal and you could order cocaine, heroin and opium from the Sears catalog, yet there was very little addiction and crime associated with it. He also argues that current drug laws are rooted in racism--with the government imposing stiffer penalties for some than others.
But have his views modified since Washington and Oregon legalized marijuana? And, does he think the legal market for marijuana can ever truly compete with the black market because of the excess taxation.

Continuing our coordination with Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) we are pleased to have Dr. Linda Lagemann as our guest this evening. We will also be discussing the recent passage of a bill in New Mexico to protect children from forced drugging and to prevent CPS from abducting a child from their home because parents refused to drug their child.
Dr. Linda Lagemann is a clinical psychologist with 25 years experience in the field. After observing that the “mental health” field had become dominated by psychiatric labels and drugs and was doing more harm than help, she closed her practice. She now devotes herself full-time to efforts to reform the field and inform people about the disability caused by psychiatric drugs, especially when given to children. She has been interviewed on radio stations across the country and internationally and has been featured in two documentaries.
Dr. Lagemann is a Commissioner for Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) (www.cchrint.org). She is also an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) in the Department of Medicine (3-time recipient of the UCSF Annual Teaching Excellence Award).
