Never-ending Shurtleff Stuff - 2015-08-12
In the early 2000s, Shurtleff pushed for the funding of an expensive medical program to sweat meth toxins out of exposed cops. It just happend to be the brainchild of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, who called it "Purif" or the "Purification Rundown."
Government support for Purif cropped up this week in a Daily Beast expose on the Department of Defense's also playing sucker to the Scientologists.
Medical experts in Utah questioned Purif, which had been cleverly renamed the Utah Meth Cops Project, as quakery. Indeed, Shurtleff, in his goofy, some would say despicable, way, had gotten entangled with Sandra Lucas, director of the Utah Meth Cops Project and Scientology's lobbyist at the Utah Legislature.
