This big donator to CoS is the CEO of a pharmaceutical company. At first glance one might say that contradicts CoS principals.
However it appears to me that his company specializes in some form of cancer treaments and probably has nothing to do with Psych drugs.
I was trying to remove the post using advanced but I didn't see the option so I edited the post to what is left there.
I'm sure there is some conflict existing somewhere in there however it is not the conflict that I was looking for.
Medical Marijuana is supposedly being prescribed for some cancer patients.
I do wonder what Mr Duggan would think of the cancer patients who mix his elixir with the herbal of essence.
If a patient did and died and the family sued Duggan's company I could picture Mr Duggan's lawyers arguing at his bequest that the person was mixing his elixir with herbal of the essence.
Things could get interesting in the not so near to distant future.
I am curious if the cancer drug, or any other drug that they manufacture have ever been for use in mental conditions or prescribed by psyches. He is on a fine line. But money talks, eh?
Thank you Udarnik.
I think the specific question would be:
Is there any drug that the Duggans company manufacture or distribute (however you want to say it) that has ever been used for a mental condition? (whether cancer drug or not)
Pretty broad question.
Bold is mine.According to the Advil® Drug Facts, patients should not use ibuprofen right before or after heart surgery. Risk of heart attack or stroke may increase when used at higher doses or longer than directed. Patients are directed to ask a doctor before use if they have high blood pressure or heart disease.
Where is Smurf when you need him. Did the Duggans ever have a son named Chris? I am pretty sure that was his name. He passed away from cancer at the age of 17 or 18 in Los Angeles area, around 1995 - 1998. Smurf?
Let me make a few things clear about the bio-pharmaceuticals industry.
* An actual example from my own checkered career.
No drugs of 'any kind' are not completely restricted. Just any drug that affects the mind, or restimulates or turns on 'mental image pictures' or something close to that. That is the theory more or less. Hubbard claimed it was kind of 'interference' with the C/S and auditors ability to produce auditing results and or move a person up the bridge to clear and beyond.
I am trying to remember the details (this was some decades ago) but I was involved in a discussion about someone going to take or having taken a 'medication' and whether or not it was possible to do so per authorization of the C/S. I think the line was that the C/S(case supervisor) had to find out from the Medical Liaison officer' who either had a list to refer to or who had to contact a 'scientology doctor' as regards the 'mind influence' of the drug/medication. Vaguely remember that the DSA was involved also in the discussion.
The above is an aside from the other ideas about drugs/medications and their toxic affect on the body and mind as comes out of the purification program, although the two concepts may have a common subset of interplay.
I much prefer that this 'All scientologist are against ALL drugs at any time and under all conditions' type of statement is not used, as most scientologist know that is too absolute and that some medications although not desired are acceptable under certain circumstances,then they can use the incorrect statement as a reason to throw out the other 'entheta' about the real abuses and bullshit that exists in scientology. Facts are facts so try to stick with them. Opinions are a different game.
