Ibogaine is a drug used to cure drug addiction in 48 hrs without withdrawal symptoms. It has been tested in the United States and it is deemed safe but according to the U.S. we don't have the budget and some argue that it is not safe. Ibogaine is an alkaloid derived from the root of the African plant tabernanthe iboga. It is a hallucinogenic substance. We have over 140 million addicts in the world. Ibogaine also act by giving the person an intensive 30 or so hours of therapy, the person gets to identify and remove the emotional reasons why they took the drugs in the first place. This drug is legal everywhere except the U.S. and Belgium. I guess it's best to keep addicts on methadone which is addictive in itself then to help these people. This is ridiculous. I guess it's all about the money after all.

The FDA drug approval process is more or less determined by politics.

That's why Accutane was remove from the market.
