Harm Reduction Resources / MOVED: Sending money to Moriarity

IMO killing the 'war on drugs' would be a good thing. That abomination is no war on drugs, it is a war waged by the governments of countries upon their own citizens.

***Standing wide eyed a small tear streaks slowly down his face as he begins to slow clap***

Motherfucking-A! Thank you. I wrote a long ass response telling you all the ways I agree with you and how important I think it is for us to stand wittness to the atrocity these tyrants are commiting with the help of their jack booted, traitorous lackey's but it seemed unimportant and redundant. What I thought was important was telling you I fucking think you rock! More people need to be saying this and more people need to really open their ears and listen and comprehend how serious the implications of these are. Man America is makling billions of the prison industrial complex and it is being financed off the misery and suffering of people whose only crime was to choose to medicate themselves without the consent of a government sanctioned dealer. How awful is it that people are flourishing from this knowing that if you remove the title "iegal" from the drugs being done then most if not all of the families that were torn apart by this will be found to have been torn asssunder for NO REASON AT ALL! Jail overcrowding is a thing of the past since 75%+ of them are populated with non-violent drug offenders. Prostiution and the emotional damage occuring both to patrons and "benificiaries" becomes all but extinct. Petty theft becomes almost  a negligible criminal statistic since the price of drugs is inflated almost entirely due to the expenses associated with the black markte... People can have an open dialouge with their health care providers and take prevtative action against healt-risks associated with various drugs. I mean this list continues ad infinitum but no one ever sees it and if they do they still continue to point fingers at everyone but the demons responsible for this plague.... oh well all we can do is stand and bare witness and pray that one day the reckoning will come and those responsible will be called to account by the people who they have transgressed... Again, you rock bro...

Most phenethylamine, tryptamine, ergoline, etc. drug patents are expired and in the public domain.

i don't see how an alternate synthesis 'gets around' any such copyright infringement but i know nothing about the law.

i do, however, have a grasp on fair play.

surely it is moreso the product that bears the weight of copyright here, regardless of the route taken ?

mind you and having said that, i'm not sure what would happen if software synthed every possible molecular structure, so the method is definitely intellectual property.

Ok I'm most definitely not particularly knowledgeable when it comes to chemistry (or law, for that matter), but...

It seems to me like particular molecular configurations can't possibly be copyrighted since they're totally naturally occuring (even if synthesized in a lab). I mean, it feels like if someone were to copyright gasoline (goodbye 90% of the fuel industry).

I'm not speaking from a place of certainty or anything, but intuitively it just seems like it can't possibly be.

Even syntheses the though... Like, can someone copyright hydrocarbon combustion????

Some food for thought at the very least, that's for sure

Chematica was covered here before, awesome software, I which I had excess to it :D

I would love to play around with Chematica myself, if only I had the chance, but, these huge pieces of proprietary software that charge like $10,000 a license (or something like that) aren't always that much more sophisticated than what open source projects can do (with the right amount of dedication and contribution, at least).

It's like Wolfram / Mathematica / etc... Sure, super useful software if you can afford it (or can get a license by some other means), but totally replicable.

The awesome thing about computer science is that the investments are virtually non-existent. I've only recently gotten into chemistry and it's already costing me a small fortune (glassware, precursors, solvents, and the especially fancy shit like Soxhlet extractors, etc).

The rules are the "basic moves" that are used by graph-search algorithms to navigate enormous trees of synthetic possibilities in intelligent ways.

I just knew I wasn't barking up the wrong tree with my own endeavors (www.thevespiary.org/talk/index.php/topic,16556)...

I thought this was pretty interesting, basically this company has developed AI that can reverse engineer drug patents in order to sidestep copyright infringement.  I bet with some tweaking it could also be purposed to sidestep drug laws and create new designer drugs / research chemicals.

Called Chematica, the software platform does something called “retrosynthesis,” similar to the kind of reverse engineering that takes place when an engineer dissects an existing product to see how it works. In the case of Chematica, this process is based on a deep knowledge of how chemical interactions take place. It has around 70,000 synthetic chemistry “rules” coded into its system, along with thousands of additional auxiliary rules prescribing when particular reactions occur and with which molecules they’re compatible. An algorithm then inspects the massive number of possible reaction sequences in order to find another way to the same finish line.
