Ex-Soldiers Are Being Given MDMA to Help Them with PTSD
If hanging out with a bunch of strangers in a foreign country, shooting at other strangers for a living wasn’t damaging enough, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is always there to prolong the trauma once combat soldiers return from war. Around 25 percent discharged American soldiers suffer from the disorder.
Tony Macie, an Iraq veteran, is one of those soldiers. Traumatized by the deaths of two of his friends in a truck bomb attack, Macie was prescribed conventional medication to treat his PTSD after returning to the US. When that wasn’t working out for him, he started to research alternative remedies and came across the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), which was offering an experimental treatment with MDMA.
I gave Tony a call and spoke to him about using the drug to try to overcome his post-Iraq trauma.
VICE: Hi, Tony. Can you tell me about your experience of serving in Iraq?Tony Macie: I was there for 15 months. A lot of the time I was clearing roads, and there was a constant fear of being ambushed. I think it was six months into my tour. I wasn’t there when it happened, but a petrol base got hit by a truck bomb and killed a couple of my buddies. That was really upsetting; it was the point when I was like, “This is real. This is war.”
Do you think you were suffering more than your colleagues? Or was everyone in the same boat?I think everyone was suffering. At times we didn’t realize it, though, because we were so focused on staying alive.
Were there any points when you felt particularly afraid for your life?Probably just after the car bomb went off. We were there for three days straight guarding the road, just waiting for another car bomb to come. There was a point when we were sitting in the Humvee and we thought there was going to be an attack. Nothing happened in the end, but I was out there for three days, on night duty, just waiting for something to happen. Over there, death could have happened at any point. I was always expecting an ambush or a fire fight.
How did you feel when you got back to America?At first, there was a lot of relief. I was glad to be back and felt kind of safe. But after a couple of days I couldn’t really sleep and I started overheating. After a couple of weeks I started drinking to go to sleep, and a month or two after that I started to have anxiety and panic attacks. That’s when I decided to go to the doctors.

How-To: Make Sous Vide Pot Butter
Everyone knows how to make a basic weed butter. We took New York chef, David Santos of Louro, to Denver, Colorado to show us how to make sous vide pot butter. He then used it to create the best marijuana meal the world has ever seen: perfectly roasted chicken with sautéed wild mushrooms and a pain perdu from the weed—ahem—pan drippings.

So. Here’s this thing I made for my digital darkroom class. The assignment was to take an advertisement for some kind of product, or service and then subvert the message portrayed in the ad using photoshop, with the end result being an Adbusters style anti-ad.

For whatever reason I immediately thought of turning the iconic Absolut bottle into a molotov cocktail- in the style of the “Absolut ________” ad campaign ads.

Ideally we were supposed to find and scan an ad from a magazine for highest possible quality, but I had a great deal of time finding a physical ad for my needs, so I kind of went overboard and did this crazy composite piece.

You can see the original ad, and my version underneath it. I used the same model, and the original bottle from the ad, as well as the closest approximations to Absolut’s custom made fonts that I could find.

for the purpose of the composition of the image, I took some artistic liberties with the placement of the text, so it’s not a full on copy/spoof I guess, but I think I captured the spirit of what was asked for. All of it is important to the overall theme of the Ad, so please take the time to read it if you can. (Hopefully it isn’t too small to read at this resolution.)

Personally, I think the message is pretty clear but during my critique, a few people seemed to be having a hard time grasping the concept I was putting across.

COMMENTS AND CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM WELCOMED AND ENCOURAGED.
