first page - My Ongoing Open Letter to LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition)

Not all people have the same availability of released dopamine in their brains, and the release of dopamine is highly conditional to a person's perceived well-being and position in life. When people talk about reward, as a mechanism of the brain, and just as much as when people talk about something being rewarding to them personally, they're noting the release of dopamine in the brain. When somebody makes a judgement that they accomplished something, or that things are good for them, their brain worries about less, and eases up on its dopamine control, and some more dopamine becomes available, which in turn makes the person feel much more at ease, and much better able to analyse, concentrate, and appreciate all things - because more dopamine means easier flow of information throughout the brain, and relaxation for that whole person. People in struggling places in life generally will have very low amounts of dopamine available to them - so their environmental condition is exacerbated by them having even less means than other people to do anything about it. No matter how clear and obvious a solution is, if there isn't enough available dopamine to process the extra information that recognizing and accomplishing a solution takes, the solution will be as if entirely invisible to the person, or impossible to wrap their head around, or accomplish soundly.

A person can only accomplish what their on-hand dopamine availability will allow them to,  and how difficult a thing is to accomplish will highly depend on a person's dopamine availability. The list on the left in this link are some of those in society with the largest amounts of on-hand released-dopamine:

In perfect honesty, the average person would have to take a notable dose of cocaine in order to become similarly dopamine-equipped as a police-person, who arrests people under the influence of, and in the possession of cocaine. The dopamine released by cocaine is the full effect of cocaine, and there is no difference between the dopamine released by cocaine, and the dopamine that a brain has naturally - it is one and the same, and cocaine, and other dopaminergics, only spur a relaxation on its regulation, allowing for more of it to release. A police-person often is experiencing higher dopamine-availability than a person whom they might be confronting for holding a dopamine-releasing substance - but to the police-person, that relatively-elevated level of dopamine is the norm, while a person they confront for having a dopamine-releasing substance is used to a far lower level of available dopamine. In short, police arrest others for what they are more guilty of, themselves. Another way to put it, is that possession and use of dopamine-releasing substances cannot be a moral crime, because every human being runs on, and is wholly dependent upon having the availability of dopamine in the brain, and every positive experience in a person's life was only possible because their brain had the dopamine-availability to be capable to process and receive it.
