Re: Drugs

Ah, well I lost my source so that probably won't happen (plus inability to afford), though I have a friend who used to do that

Where I live, and at my age, the easiest things to get are the most dangerous- Percoset etc.- while stuff like that takes weeks

Well if you only do once, it shouldn't be too bad.

It's when you start rolling every other weekend, or 3 times in 9 days, 2-3 pills per, (my peak, Spring 2008), shit can go down. Done it twice since, don't plan anymore.

With that being said, I will never ever do drugs.

Re: Drugs

If I were president, I would decriminalize and legalize marijuana.

Yes, that's sort of random, and sort of cliche since so many people say it, but it needed to be said by me.

I personally think that all drugs should be legal. The most surefire way of getting people to do something is to tell them they can't do it. Look at Portugal. They legalized everything, and the usage remained basically the same, but the amount of people seeking help for drug addiction increasing substantially.

The people? Let them eat cake, let them smoke, pop, and snort what they want. I don't believe in government telling people they can and cannot do things in the privacy of their own home, so long of course they are not harming others. Besides, the government has no problem selling cancer sticks (cigarettes) and alcohol and are in bed with the tobacco and alcohol companies, getting a cut on every 6 pack and carton. How many people do you hear dying from lung or liver cancer every year? How many people do you hear dying from accidents due to drunk driving? A shitload! Now tell me how many people have died from smoking too much weed? NONE!

Re: Drugs

Exactly. "Addiction" is psychological.

If it wasn't psychological, then you wouldn't have people quitting drugs or cigarettes, or even fat people losing weight and becoming fit. It takes time, but if you can keep psyching yourself out of it, addiction can be rid of before it becomes fatal.

Again, discipline is what we lack.

Going back to topic; whether or not we legalize drugs, I could hardly give a shit.

Psychological addiction is much worse than physical addiction. Your organism stops craving nicotine a few days after you quit and yet many smokers start smoking weeks/months after quitting. They don't *need* nicotine, but they crave for ciggies anyway.

Like Brotree already explained, one does not specifically need a drug to be considered an addict . There were cases where people killed each other in real life over virtual MMO items in games. Any addiction is harmful, even if you happened to be addicted to drinking 20 litres of water a day, eventually your kidneys would give out.

I am actually one of those people who would favor to legalize ALL drugs, but sadly fools need to be protected from themselves, so they need to remain illegal just because of that. Few bad apples ruin it for the rest of us, unfortunately. Be it a teen getting hammered and committing crimes or someone just chilling smoking weed all day, living off wellfare etc.

There are talks of controlling sugar in Australia just like cigs/alcohol. Why? Because people can't control themselves.

Re: Drugs

Well some drugs are actually addictive. I personally would not legalize something like a heroin or cocaine, but my problem is that the "war on drugs" in the US is really a war on weed, something that is more harmless and less addictive than alcohol. So much money is being spent on people who are indeed just addicted to fun and the experience of THC, not the actual chemical.

Drug tests are a perfect example of how the US is targeting marijuana users. A dangerous drug like heroin or cocaine will remain in your system for 1-4 days, but THC is one of the few drugs that is fat soluble and can stay in your system for a long time (the other fat soluble drug I know of is PCP which is very dangerous but use is rare). This policy is not protecting the people from anything. It's good that it is becoming decriminalized which keeps innocent people out of jail, but legalization is the only way the government would finally be able to regulate the drug and keep it out of the hands of children. I heard about of group of students who bought 4 ounces of marijuana today, let me tell you, this would not be possible if the government could regulate sales. It's honestly easier to get marijuana than for an underaged person to get alcohol.

What I'm seeing with this argument is that there are various stimuli that evokes different level of fun/pleasure/happiness (whatever you want to call it). I believe that, the more "fun" a stimuli is, the more addictive it is. Just so happens that drugs are generally "more pleasurable" than say food perhaps. I believe it's the substance or chemicals (better word to use) in drugs provide that incredible kick of pleasure (not necessarily the addiction). Different levels of addiction is dependent across how "fun" or "pleasurable" something is. The relationship is proportional.
