Drug Free Marshals Night at the Muckdogs

The Drug Free Marshals is a front group for the Church of Scientology.

As you may already know, Drug-Free Marshals is a group wholly controlled by the Church of Scientology which is a criminally-convicted organization in Canada and France.[1] The Church of Scientology Toronto was convicted of two counts of breach of public trust in 1992 for infiltrating the OPP and the Ontario Office of the Attorney General to steal documents. They were also convicted of libel in a related case in Toronto in 1995.[2] The Church of Scientology was convicted of fraud in France in October 2009.[3] I am concerned that the Drug-Free Marshals is a front group for the Church of Scientology to recruit new members and families.

The Church of Scientology has a record of human rights abuses against its own members. For example, the Church of Scientology maintains a 'disconnection policy', under which individuals within the Church are forbidden contact with those whom the Church deems to be a threat to its security. This policy is used by the Church of Scientology to separate families, creating a rift between those outside the Church and those trapped within it.[4] Another example is the Church’s Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) which functions like a system of slave labour camps set up by the Sea Org (Scientology’s elite staff), intended to rehabilitate Sea Org staff members who have not lived up to the Church’s expectations or who have violated certain policies. Many ex-Sea Org members have reported grueling treatment and being coerced into having abortions.[5]

It scares me, a practicing Catholic and a parent, that Catholic parochial schools and indeed Public schools would knowingly allow Scientology such easy access to our children. Such a fateful decision must surely stem from ignorance about this group.

In light of these facts, I sincerely hope that association with this group and Scientology in general is promptly ended.


P.S. The Church of Scientology also maintains a front group called the “Citizens Commission on Human Rights” (CCHR). The main goal of the CCHR is to attack and destroy the practice of Psychiatry and Psychology which the Church of Scientology considers to be its main competition and threat. Part of the CCHR’s strategy is to attack the use of drugs, including legitimately prescribed medications by physicians. This Scientology dogma is disguised in one of the pamphlets distributed by Drug-Free Marshals about the prescription drug Ritalin, which it labels “Kiddie Cocaine”.[6] Ritalin (or Methyphenidate) is a drug used in the treatement of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

I seriously question the wisdom of this decision, and know other parents will have similar reactions.
