2:22:28 fascinating...watch it over and over again.
Why is it the people who seem to make the most sense are never the people running for public office?
Bring him back!
Can anyone recommend anymore JRE content that's similar to this? Sort of more on drugs and addiction, the subject has always fascinated me and is close to home..I really enjoyed listening to this guy, I'm actually re considering buying his books 👍
I love this guy and his perspective on the drug war. It's so easy to point the finger at Mexico and the corruption but no one stops to think about how the US drug war created the prison industrial complex and has given rise to the drug cartels... the list goes on.
Johann Hari: "Depression might be linked to bad life circumstances".Joe Rogan, multi-millionaire making a living off a podcast: *Surprised pikachu face "Why are people feeling depressed?*
This guy is tweaking, "right?" I'm not complaining about it, just saying.He talks a million miles a second while gesturing wildly, sipping water like he's running a marathon. He had my attention the whole show, though!
Let's be real here the government is making reality feel like a prison
I’m an hour and a half in and the amount I have learned so far is fucking astonishing. Can we find a way to broadcast this to the rest of America?
Fucking brilliant. Thank you
What a compelling storyteller. He's made me cry.
One of the best episodes ever!
Just for the record, we in Britain do not "Feel American"...
make heroin legal...because China in the 1800s never happened. Twat
This guest needs TRT FUCKING BAD. Poster child for a beta cuck. What a great example of why Europe is so cucked at this point.
this dude also has a tedx talk
I bet 100% of ppl know this will never happen here because obvious private prison/city quotas to arrest the people who were taxed not only to build these garbage buildings but then also keep them housed which ofcourse is more tax for us. Its like Hiring a Bully just to be a dick to You but we give them the decision to decide if they wanna keep their job which supplies their JOB. Funny to know i was born in Zurich only for my pops to listen to his dumb fucking brothers about moving to the American Dream only to watch his kids die multiple times, nurse a DOPE/CRACK addicted baby( part family part drug dealer) you will never experience i would imagine besides war death screams of being sleepless for months on end from a beautiful baby carrying the burden of a nations greed ingrained in her bones. Ive heard peoples last breaths from OD's to Violent Assaults(Shot) and nothing compares to that sound of that cry for help for hours and hours on end. U-S-A all the way i believe that line went in kickboxer. We do nothing at normal level here in America. Well...only if your privileged i guess.
The day after Marisela was murdered, her husbands lumber yard was burned to the ground. The next day his brother was murdered too. Probably the only reason her two kids are alive is because they are in jail in the USA. That’s not a guarantee...
This is very good. Often times addicts have a history of anxiety and usage is a means to escape the anxiety. Jung actually wrote that anxiety could be a signaling system that something is not as it should be in one's life. This ties into one's various needs whether social, emotional, sexual, etc. Some of these ideas have been around for a while but unfortunately this doesn't mean they are widely adopted and understood.
spoken like someone who has never been addicted. bad life equals addiction. what about a great life of abundance and just wanting to have fun and feel euphoric until it turns into fighting off the sick.
lol the 7/7 bombers weren't british. behave.
“Phoenix is great” Phoenix is a fucking dump. Tucson, flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott are all nice but dude Phoenix is lame as hell. It’s a great place to get drunk buts that’s it
Condor, story telling and Narrative openness perfect description of the difference between English and American culture
Well lots of people have $hitty lives but not that many of them get hooked on drugs. I think we all have that voice in our heads that quietly warns us to not drink that 3rd beer, don't steel, your driving too fast, don't sleep with her its wrong... people just choose to ignore that voice. They don't choose goals or value self control. You have to choose to do right and some people just choose to do wrong.
Pharma companies have intrests
Some say the cia started the lsd craze
Really smart guy
Thos is an amazing empath.you can see that he feels others pain deeply
I really enjoyed this conversation but if I hear the word "right" one more time, I'm gonna visit the post office!!!
Jesus, Joe's being a really contrarian dick in this.
Big government programs meant to help people have time after time failed. It is foolish to allow these programs
So the leftist who's policies has caused the drug epidemic. But we should use leftist policy to make a solution by giving addict a means to get high. A small homogenous country like Switzerland is not a comparison you can make to a devirsified and split country like America or even britian
Ok so we need a quick, to the point factual add campaign that shows the before and after numbers in Portugal and Switzerland, and a brief outline of what they stopped doing, and started doing to get there.We need to educate the whole populous of the country in order to get everyone behind the concept, *before* it becomes an issue of republican or democrat.It should be presented by a non political group, so it doesn't get dragged into stalemate in bipartisan politics.Maybe a go fund me kind of deal? Idk. That's probably dumb. It seems to be to me that other countries would benefit greatly from throwing off the shackles of what amounts to being the United States' war on drugs.If more of them followed the examples of Portugal and Switzerland, it would hopefully gain the attention of more countries, creating a domino effect.One that eventually would tip the US into a more reasonable way of dealing with the issue than they do now.
2:19:00 or so... Provigil... My experience was that it gave me the focus I needed to accomplish the things I needed to get done in my day without suppressing my appetite or affecting my ability to sleep at my normal bedtime.Instead of procrastinating a given task, or being overwhelmed by all of the little jobs that go along with doing the main job, it just gave me an ability to do whatever was necessary to complete the task at hand. Without any buzzy side effects like the other ADD and ADHD drugs I was prescribed.I would still be on it except my insurance at that time (now I have none) wouldn't cover it. $500 out of pocket for a 30 day supply. A note from the shrink would have pushed it through, but nope.A person could die just from switching doctors as the new one tries to prove the last one wrong in their diagnosis, and removes you from the meds you've been on for the last 8 years. Then puts you on meds that your history clearly states don't work for you.Because *she* is not comfortable prescribing that. I was under the impression that my mental health was about *my* comfort, not my fat ass doctors.Meanwhile, life goes on, and everything you've worked so hard to build, just slides away into nothingness to satisfy the new doctors ego and billable appointments.Fucking life destroying egotistical cunts.Good thing I wasn't clinically depressed. I wonder how many people under her care, waiting for her to figure out how to put her spin on their diagnosis, just ended up saying, "Fuck it. Done.", and offed themselves?
At 2:05:00 or so, the topic is potency of weed. One of the reasons I quit smoking pot about 15 years ago, is cuz its potency changed. I remembered how much fun it used to be. And I realized that it wasn't fun anymore. Even limiting myself to lower and lower amounts.Instead of laughing and it being an energetic carefree "high", it melted me to the couch, made me stupid for about 20 minutes and made me paranoid.This was before everyone decided it was ok to smoke pot.Having smoked pot the previous 20 years to that, I know for a fact that it was hybridized to increase potency to get the biggest high, and the most money, from the least amount, to transport, and possess.The charge is the same for a pound of ditch weed as it is for a pound of super hydro nug. So if you were gonna bother messin with it, taking the risk, you wanted the biggest bang for your buck.Indica strains had the short, bushy, high weight yield along with a shorter grow time and heavier stoned effect.As compared to the Sativa's I mostly was accustomed to prior to that.
Crazy, i live in richmond virginia and there is extreme violence here due to the drug war. I have been stopped on the street by police because i was white in the wrong nieghborhood multiple times even had police beg me not to keep walking down one street near a place called gilpin court.(Not too far from the beautiful capitol.) The cop told me that he wouldnt send his worst enemy down the street i was walking down. We had to hitchhike as much as possible because you can literally be killed for walking down the street in this crack den. Luckily im tall and lanky and most people would either assume im an undercover cop or insane so that and walking with a buddy keeping a weapon handy at all times is the only reason im alive to talk about it. Also a place where i met a man named luke who claimed to have been an engineer who built the bowtie theater. He is now a real life tyrone biggums. In his house he has a chair, a blanket and a lil box with his crack smoking utensils. I learned that almost every house in these nieghborhoods is either crackheads or crackdealers. And its funny because i have never heard one word about the crack problem in richmond. Recently there has been alot about the opiod crisis because some rich white kids are dying. But the nieghborhoods that are so crack and violence infested the police wont even go there and not a word about it in the local media.
Mr. Hari said that legalization in Switzerland has lowered the cost of the heroin problem in that country.Is it a capitalist society? EDIT: That was a dumb question. The whole world is capitalist.Switzerland and Portugal are both basically democratic. End Edit.Cuz here in the good old USA, the cost of incarceration, and treatment, for all addictions and their associated behaviors, is a huge economic money ball that makes money for investors hand over fist.(Calling Hanover Fist! Hanover Fist to the witness stand!) ("Heavy Metal", the movie.)Often the investors for these private institutions are the constituents lawmakers and the very judges that sentence these people to their time to be served!It shouldn't surprise me, considering most peoples opinions of lawyers is that they are greedy, money hungry animals with no empathy or sympathy for their clients.ALL judges are lawyers before they are judges, and most lawmakers are lawyers before they enter politics!So lawmakers and judges with an agenda of personal profit are not going to willingly change that situation unless some drastic changes are made.Consider these points...Addiction treatment facilities are privately owned.Let's say it costs $10,000 per bed per month, for easy figuring.First time offenders are often sentenced to a month of treatment instead of jail time.Most of these people do not have a health insurance plan that will cover this cost.So the county they live in picks up the tab, with a lien placed on the patients future income tax returns. The county is then compensated by the state, and the state by the federal gov.In other words, for the treatment facility, its a guaranteed pay off with no debt collection worries.So the treatment facility has 50 beds. And none of them are ever empty.That's a half a million dollars *per month* . $6 million per year.The staff counselors they hire are recovering addicts themselves, without degrees in medicine, psychology, or addiction.In other words, the overhead costs are minimal. Most of that money is profit.The go to method of treatment is the 12 step program. Which has a long term success rate of 3 to 8%!Which guarantees a never ending supply of patients. (Money.)Also, crime is an essential part of the economy.Keeping the war on drugs an ongoing war on the american people, means law enforcement jobs from the federal level down to the village level.Not just cops. Secretaries, office workers, prison guards, the list is long.Having allowed most factory and industrial jobs to physically leave the country...There isn't much left for employment. Law enforcement. Medical care.There are many more points to make. But my rants get too long winded. And that's the gist of it anyway.Besides... I need a hit.
Drug addicts are people. Just like all of you. American society treats them like animals and it has to stop.
Fu g hom
ok swiss population is 8 million, not 5.5. but great podcast indeed!
The story about Billie Holiday broke my fucking heart.
England is a fag country.
Billie Holliday didn’t write strange fruit...she just performed it. She probably should’ve just stopped singing it.....since it ruined her career on material she didn’t come up with....imo
Such a great podcast
One of your most important guests joe!!!An absolute great cause from what looks like a great guy. Your guest joe really do change my mind and if not change then definitely give me another perspective plus more knowledge.
Finding the causes and helping others find their way to a meaningful life- instead of funding violence and hatred... #purpose #meaning WOW. Thank you Rogan and Johann!!!
23 minutes in, so far Joe has literally only repeated what the other guy said.
This guy was really great to listen too
I'm an ex junkie who plows through alot of pain but if pain is weakness leaving the body than won't I be stronger tomorrow?
I love this guy and his use of the word “right” 🤣
Do you love me now??
I'm glad someone said it😱

Damn, america sucks.
Population and resource control my dude. Government isn't a charity
It plays a role in either being the cause of the STRESS or the relief of the stress. Your study is simple
Absolutely fascinating guest.
I like the way this guy says apple
Johann Hari has really challenged my belief systems about the legalization of drugs. I'm not completely convinced yet but he gives such a compelling argument that I am definitely going to give it some more thought.
