We’ve had a couple years now to allow the drug court process to mature. We’ve had several “graduating classes” and a very good track record. We talked to the initial sitting drug court judge to get the framework of the court’s operations so now, let’s talk to several recent drug court participants and hear their stories from the inside. Join us this Sunday evening as we speak to Dan and Kurt and one of their biggest supporters, Blu.
It's not like there aren't many better ways to make money but selling drugs seems to generate revenue faster. It's not like there aren't better ways to feel good and confident but drugs seem to get people there faster.
How do we protect our young people from getting caught up in the life of drug elling and drug abusing?
Let's get right into this.
Do you know anyone that had the potential to do something great but chose to sell drugs?
Have you known anyone that lead an otherwise productive life EXCEPT that they had a little drug habit?
Have you ever lost a loved one to the drug game?
Do you think jail sentences for drug activity are given fairly?
Have you ever tried drugs of any kind?
What are your feelings about rehabilitation?
Do you think that it's easy to go straight after making money selling drugs successfully for a number of years?
Do you think that getting off of drugs is easier than people give it credit for?
Do you think that the Just say no campaign of the 80's was a good slogan?
What advice would you give to a young person that was in the beginning stages of selling or using drugs?

This weeks GUEST: RUSTY FLEMING
Rusty Fleming is a specialist concerning the Drug Cartels and being that he in on the front lines in Texas -
I will be asking Rusty his thoughts on several issues.
Is part of this current out-of-control invasion is a cloak to tie up Border Patrol as many are suggesting, and if these suggestions are factual - as many of us suspect - what if anything is being done about it in Hudspeth County
What Rusty is seeing on the front lines
Is there skuddlebutt from Mexico and the Cartels about this invasion
And, any updates he has on Mexican Intrusions - some serious
Please join us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today we will share the legacies of two individuals who have put themselves on the frontlines in the fight against the crimes of drug and human trafficking.
Robert Mazur served 27 years as a Federal Special Agent for the IRS, Customs Service and Drug Enforcement Administration. Five of those years were spent under-cover as Bob Musella, a high-rolling mob-connected big shot who infiltrated the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels.
Bob’s under-cover stings proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega and helped cripple an international multi-billion money laundering outfit that served drug lords like Pablo Escobar. His new book, The Infiltrator, provides vivid and nail-biting details about his life in the criminal under-world, including events that led to a $500,000 contract being placed on his head.
More than three decades after India won freedom and independence from Great Britain, a little girl from the southern region of India was stolen from her family and became a slave. She was seven years old. She lost her home and her identity. She kept only her first name – Rani.
When Rani lost her value to her slave owner, he sold her to an American woman who thought she was legally adopting an orphan. This adoption saved Rani’s life and the love and support she received in her new home has cultivated a commitment to become an advocate for the voiceless victims of human trafficking and a leader in the movement to end modern slavery.

Our guest this evening is Lynn Paltrow, JD, Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women. We will be discussing drug use and addiction during pregnancy and the Alicia Beltran case--a Wisconsin women jailed for refusing to take the opiate buprenorphine.
The drug war has produced profoundly unequal outcomes across racial groups, manifested through racial discrimination by law enforcement and disproportionate drug war misery suffered by communities of color. Although rates of drug use and selling are comparable across racial lines, people of color are far more likely to be stopped, searched, arrested, prosecuted, convicted and incarcerated for drug law violations than are whites. Higher arrest and incarceration rates for African Americans and Latinos are not reflective of increased prevalence of drug use or sales in these communities, but rather of a law enforcement focus on urban areas, on lower-income communities and on communities of color as well as inequitable treatment by the criminal justice system. We believe that the mass criminalization of people of color, particularly young African American men, is as profound a system of racial control as the Jim Crow laws were in this country until the mid-1960s.

Professional motorcyclist Keith Code knows the ins and outs of the drug world first hand all too well. He's recently been named ambassador for the Foundation for a Drug Free World. Keith joins Joe to talk about the project and how we can all join forces to help keep our kids drug free. Tune in!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

Sadness, loneliness, anger, worry, and fear are some of the negative emotions that can prompt a person to turn to alcohol or drugs for a temporary escape, the rush of endorphins into the blood stream and the sense of comfort they bring, even if for only a short time. When these methods of self comfort become habitual, a person loses the ability to handle unpleasant emotions without them. But while alcohol and drug addictions are easy to recognize, food addictions are often misunderstood. Obesity is the result of eating habits out of control, but often the reason behind overeating is emotional distress. Food can be a source of comfort just as can alcohol or drugs. Are you a number of pounds heavier than you would like but haven't been able to shed those extra pounds? Have you noticed not just what you eat but WHEN and WHY you eat? Did you gain wait after a relationship breakup? After a job loss? After a loved ones death? Certain life experiences are distressing, and when food becomes our source of comfort, we eat those things that flood our bodies with comforting endorphins - which are often sugary foods with less nutritional value. Are you overeating to mask a state of depression? How do you know when food has become your drug?

Corporate Trainers – we glow when we think about the benefits of our training programs. We’re positively gushing and almost unbearable talking about the results that we give our clients and organizations. We want to show you hard numbers with a measurable ROI on areas like:
Improved employee performance
Improved employee satisfaction and retention
Overall competitive advantage
The reality... most corporate training is dry, dull, boring, and unimaginative. Participants are secretly conetemplating ways to "end it now" so that they don't have to sit through another 4 hours of this mind-numbing drivel.
Enter Gamification. Fun, colorful, sweet and happy... we're like children with our faces pressed against the candy store window, drooling, wishing we could try just one piece.
But with the overall cost and an 80% chance of failure, is it something that we can or should recommend to the C team.
This week, learn how to use low tech gamification as your gateway drug. Get 'em hooked and coming back for more.
With Monica Cornetti, International Gamification Speaker and Curriculum Designer
