Borklog: One entry

3 December 2000

Via flutterby, What's Abstinence Got To Do With It?, explaining the fallacy of "just say no" when there's no education involved. The "Just Say No" concept applied to drugs/sex/IRC/Rolf without explaing the facts behind them is an ineffective strategy. I like Andrew Weil's book From Chocolate to Morphine: Everyting you need to now about mind-altering drugs. It presents the effects and risks of mind-altering substances (including social acceptable ones like alcohol and caffeine) in a non-judgmental, almost clincal manner; presuming the reader is smart enough to judge facts and make logical decisions.
