Dr. Barnsley Brown
A clinical psychiatrist offers a stunning indictment of the war on drugs in a new book, Blowing Smoke: Rethinking the War on Drugs without Prohibition and Rehab (Rowman & Littlefield 2012). Author Michael Reznicek, MD has worked for over 25 years in the trenches of the drug war. In this controversial new book, he argues that we are losing the war because of our devotion to the disease model of substance abuse. That model has become the driving force behind our two main strategies: prohibition laws and drug rehab. The book traces the history and science behind each to show how they paradoxically enable drug use.

Morgan R. Gantt founded SWIGCH’D, her own collection of Premium Indian Remy hair extensions and Lace Wigs, because of the need for higher quality hair products, genuine customer service, and proper education for all consumers. She has been wearing lace wigs for years, and has viewed them as a part of who she is, not what she is. Lace Wigs are extensions of whatever look she is trying to express at without the commitment or risk of damaging her natural hair. Morgan has spoken to hundreds of women about hair, their issues and needs, concluding that the root of the problem is the lack of education for women to make informed decisions about their hair.
