Yep. Speed, lsd (blotter), Rx quaaludes, and anything see sortable, but no needles.

By your slang I’m guessing that you’re over 40🧐 I never used needles either, but I was given a shot of criss once when I was a 13. I fainted and than stayed up for three days. I’m glad that I was smart enough to stay away. I never wanted to look like a drug addict so I guess that vanity saved my life🤘🤓

My drug years were from age 16 (‘66) til around age 32 (‘82), my drugs of choice were always beer and mixed drinks, but the best high ever was something called "Product 4" was was allegedly speed, cocaine, heroin, and LSD, but it could have been anything and I would have believed it. All I am sure of was the speed since I was up two days and acid because the hallucinations were vivid and rather amazing.

Sounds like some of the designer drugs that I see occasionally. They are usually a mix of hallucinogens with either heroine or speed. They can definitely flip your script if you haven’t done them before. It took me about a week and a bottle of rum to come off one time. Similar to a strong payote, xtc and heroine. Very uncomfortable but enlightening once you are done with it. (2CE- only for the experienced) I don’t do drugs

Although I'm sure I smoked a cigarette after my Italian dad, a true freedom fighter, drove us to my aunt s house. She is a big smoker and my dad felt that I could smoke one, realize how bad it is while feeling like an actual smoker. I smoked the cig with my aunt and dad watching. We are diverse Christians so he prayed I wouldn't get addicted. I couldn't stop thinking about smoking for weeks, but never touched a drug/cig again. It was a legit learning experience that most parents wouldn't allow because of fear that their kids would get addicted. But he knew I wouldn't succumb to a tiny little thing. Long story short: my parents are the best.

I tried a lot of things just because it was around. Extacy and LSD were really popular when I was a kid, my brother would get viles and sell it on sugar cubes. My friends mom gave us cocaine ocassionally. There were a lot of tweekers in my neighborhood, so I learned very quickly the adverse effects of drugs use. I didn’t want to look like them. But I have never been one to seek drugs. Stick to the MaryJane;)
Do I think that recreational drug use is needed? No. But I invite you to read “the Natural Mind” people use drugs as a form of playing. Obviously can be dangerous. But I think of it as a release. People aren’t meant to work their lives away either. We are so detached from what it is to be a natural person.

What if the person has an unchangeable mental illness that causes anger and depression, and medical marijuana is a fix for this? Don't tell me it doesn't exist, I know someone who tried many legal drugs to help, and it made them awfully sick, and incapable to live a normal life, then their doctor prescribed them medical marijuana, fixed, they now are happier than ever.

I think you might​ be making a few assumptions here. Many people use different drugs for a multitude of reasons. Drugs also aren't this catch-all uniform thing people turn to because they're unhappy. For instance, cocaine and mushrooms are extremely different experiences, and someone who uses the former is likely seeking something very different than someone using the latter.

I voted for it to be legal for rec use in California. I don't and haven't and probably will never use it, I hate smoking, incense, candles, potpourri. Etc. But I don't care you you do, as long as your being safe.

No, but I certainly should have been. Was born about 15 yrs too late. In my 20s, I lived with a guy 14 yrs older than me and hung with all his friends. They were 30 something former hippies, only into pot at that point. Which I didn’t do much of. The ludes I did were with people my age. Today, my drugs are Rx, but good ones!. Haha!

As Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for abused & neglected children, my wife & I cases, there were drugs involved in 90%, where parents lost custody of their children, directly or indirectly from drug use, which is about the average for all CASA’s. It is stunning to see firsthand the destruction of families from drugs😱❗️

cyanospool The Deep North
11/15/17 8:24 am

Right, I don't doubt that, but I'm guessing 90% of the time it's opiates and the other 10% it's amphetamines, cocaine or barbiturates. These are not the only drug classes that exist though. I'm willing to bet you've never dealt with cases where someone took Ayahuasca and beat their kids, for instance.

Alcohol and hallucinogens never mix well. If you ever do it again, I highly recommend taking it sober, and not at a party. Set and setting make a huge difference. Also for me it lasts closer to 15 hours which I agree is wayyy too long. Hence why I find shrooms and DMT preferable.

Definition of Drug

a medicine or other substance which has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body.

MJ is clearly a substance, and has a physiological effect when introduced into the body. The fact that it is a play doesn't have any bearing as to whether its a drug or not.

If you don't know what your talking about don't comment.

Water is a transparent and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms. Its chemical formula is H2O, meaning that its molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms that are connected by covalent bonds.

Dumb to believe the law should determine what is morally right. In early 1800s the law said you could own a human being. In early 1900s the law said women aren’t allowed to vote. Their weren’t really many drunk driving laws back in the day either, does that mean it was morally right to drive drunk? Not to mention the laws about substances are ridiculous, because schedule 1 drugs are classified as “No medical benefits, and have a high chance for abuse”. I’m sorry does that not describe cigarettes? But big tobacco has successfully kept cigarettes legal and a booming business all these years.
