Stances on drugs?

    Don't really have any issue as long as their use isn't in public or such that it could in any way affect those in the vicinity of the user, who choose not to use them. I'm very interested in the effects of psychedelics, and still have yet to determine whether I'll use them.

    I would never do mushrooms, because poisoning myself doesn't sound very fun.

    I have done LSD though, and it has some severe long-term (maybe even permanent) effects. I am very happy with them. I am now in college and doing much better with my life, and it has really helped with my depression. I don't really do drugs for "fun", besides the once or twice I've smoked weed. I really like LSD and hope more research is done on it so that in the future we can move on to legalizing it and even using it to help treat depression.

    I am sort of addicted to caffeine, if that actually counts.

    I'm fine with drugs as long as they're not pushed onto me.

    Typically I only do something unless there is something profoundly good about it, the categorical imperative in so many words.
    But drugs do not occupy a very high place in my moral hierarchy.

    I'm against "smart drugs"/nootropics that people take to try to "performance enhance" for passing tests better.

    Similarly against steriods.

    I could explain about why but it's not that interesting, just feel like natural is best. That said of course I beleive in drugs in medicine to cure thing.

    I believe you should be allowed to do whatever you would like to do to your body, in any way shape or form. With the discussion of drugs, there are good drugs and there are bad drugs. Drugs like LSD,Cannabis,and a variety of psychoactive chemicals, were one of the causes of my psychosis. However drugs that are prescribed to me have been helping me deal with this psychosis and bad side effects from said drugs. I really don't care if you do drugs, just don't endanger me when you do it and make sure you do it in the privacy of your own home. There is also the opinion that drugs can open your mind to greater things. Let's say you take LSD and your entire view point on the world is changed and you have an ego death like experience. If this happens then it is your duty to spread the word around to other people to let them have a warning about what it will be like if you do take this or that type of drug.

    Victimless crimes shouldn't be crimes.

    I do smoke weed from time to time. But i've learned to discriminate between what's okay and what's fucked up.
    For example, i've done LSD a couple of times and i hadn't any problems, but i've seen people destroying their lives with stuff like cocaine, crack, and stuff. Heroine and other stuff like that is nearly impossible to get.
    In fact i had a cousin who started doing crack and i caught him twice breaking into our home to steal stuff just to buy another toke.

    decriminalise everything so addicts can get they help they need, but legalise minimally harmful drugs like marijuana and such
  • yumiyacchi 03-16-2016, 06:57 PM
    Truth to be told, addicts aren't that easy to work with. You see, addicts in rehab usually tend to go back in the habit by little frustration episodes. When the governments around the world start to do things like better reinsertion politics and the likes, then we can start to decriminalize. It's a vicious circle.

    I don't really have a positive opinion on drugs. Most of the people I have met who smoke weed, for example, are absolute idiots. Like the guy in his 40s who hangs around the skatepark in my town with all the degenerate teens. Of course it's fully plausible that not everybody who uses is an idiot, but y'know. Doesn't help my opinion much.

    I also have a relatively negative opinion on prescription medication. Back in 2010 I was in a car accident, totally shattered my leg, later came close to losing the leg through septicaemia. Was stuck on heavy painkillers for a long time, spiralled into depression and was stuck on Prozac in an effort to get out of it. I dropped the Prozac after a couple of weeks because I felt like I was going insane, withdrawing into myself and hearing things that nobody else heard, so that was fun. Since they wouldn't prescribe the same painkillers I had in hospital I had to make do with over-the-counter stuff, and I wound up taking more and more to get rid of the pain, eventually I realised that I wasn't taking them for pain relief, but out of habit; in other words, I was addicted to them.

    Now I have to be careful not to fall back into that routine, which is kinda tough because I still get pain from my leg.

    Anecdote aside, I don't like drugs unless they're an absolute necessity. I've broken off friendships due to the people in question starting down the path of harder stuff.

    I used to think the same thing.

    But in the end I realised that a lot more people smoked weed than I knew about, as the only people that are really vocal about smoking weed are the idiots.

    I apparently have relatives that smoke weed, which I would never have guessed them to be the kind of people to do drugs; like, one of them is a nurse that works in a psych ward.
  • Aya 03-18-2016, 08:26 PM
    Yeah, that's what I mean. It's just, when 99% of your experience is negative, it's hard to break out of that and see the positive aspects. I know there are probably a lot of successful, normal people who enjoy a casual smoke now and again, but they typically speak a lot more quietly than the LOL#420BLAZEITFAGGOTSMOKEWEEDERRDAY ones.

    People can have their own opinions on drugs but criminalization of users is objectively actively harmful to society as a whole and the users moreso than the drugs themselves.

    heroin and meth and shit is nasty but weed and hallucinogens are cool
  • willy 03-30-2016, 12:42 AM
    If you need it, it's all good, example: ADHD, get some aderall.
    If recreational? Hey have all the fun you want to, but don't do it too much, or make a habbit out of it.
  • Ashley 03-30-2016, 12:44 AM
    if you are doing illicit drugs (including drugs not prescribed to you), you're retarded.
  • floattube 04-06-2016, 09:31 PM
    I am all for the legalization of marijuana. Never done it myself, never cared to, but it never bothered me. I hate when people try to push it on me after I say no, but whatever. Other drugs I have a problem with. A lot of relatives of mine have thrown away their lives to get their fix and recently some have OD'd. So yeah, I'm pretty much against everything that isn't marijuana.

    I'm an occasional user of MDMA, and that's the only kind of drug that I take. I love the drug, and I love the people - however there's a certain part of the MDMA user population that I am really not fond of, and those would be the people I've met at raves who are only there to get "fucked up". They're the kind of people who just walk around and ask people if they're on anything, and brag to their friends about how high they are. They're so irritating and vapid, and unfortunately due to my friendship circle, I'm constantly around those kinds of people.

    Besides MDMA, I don't really care what people put into themselves if they're responsible and educated on what they're doing. I can only pity those who can't control themselves, and despise those whose lack of self control affects lives of other people.
  • Midori 04-12-2016, 07:29 AM
    I've only tried marijuana before. Not a user, just someone who gave it a taste due to some friends asking me to. Didn't like it, never tried it again but I'm not really against the usage of it (or any illegal drugs, I guess). Just as long as it's not done in public places where there's "normal" people. And as long as the user know what he/she is doing. I've seen some fools try it only to get high af and do some weird shit.
  • SixteenBitElder 04-12-2016, 05:56 PM
    People shouldn't have to be "successful" for their drug use to be deemed acceptable by non-users. People think they earn the right to judge because they know someone who so-called messed their life up or whatever. We all know drug addicts but few people seem to learn anything from being around them besides "drug are bad" and "can't help someone who won't help their self".
    Very few people have sympathy for addicts or accept them for who they are. They only patronize and pity. Makes me wonder.

    I am most likely some kind of radical in my stance towards drugs/substances. I feel complete and total legalization of all substances is the answer. I also don't really feel that age limits on who can buy what are useful, IE I dont think the legal age to buy any substance (whether it be alcohol, cigarettes, heroin, ecstasy, Prozac, etc) should be instituted. No matter what age you set, you end up criminalizing some small section of youth who decide to do it anyway. Whats better is just making it socially and morally irresponsible for parents to let their kids do whatever. If anything parents should be punished if their kid takes a drug and gets hurt or hurts someone else.

    I dont want 5 year olds smoking cigarettes or shooting up just like everyone else, but to me its a matter of principle legally. I feel that it should be morally irresponsible to sell potentially dangerous objects to people under a certain age, but I dont think it should be a law that "any under age X can't buy this thing".

    I also feel that governments need to quit forcibly regulating all substances. I feel that government can help play a role in making these substances safer for human use/consumption (maybe through reduced taxation if certain standards are met?), but I shouldnt need to get permission from the government to create alcohol and sell it to other people for a profit.

    I only know the american perspective on healthcare which is fucked, but as a part of total legalization I feel I should have access to all prescription drugs without seeing a doctor. If I want to buy any drug, I shouldn't have to get approval from a government approved practicing doctor.


    On that note I am a total drug user. Going through my psychedelic phase right now (2-cb has been my new dig lately). I dont do pills usually but ive done xannies before. will never do meth or heroin. Ive done cocaine and I enjoy it, I will end up doing it again but coke is like weed for me: the less I do it the better.
    Mescaline is my favorite all round experience. Acid a close second. molly rawk third. 2-cb fourth, and ketamine my fifth favorite.

    For whatever reason the world is not sure how to feel about drug users. Thanks to the US  and its puppet the UN, most nations across the world have implemented authoritarian scare tactics and ignorant laws in an attempt to help people decide what is right for them. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    I think that the issue with this is that a lot of people see the law as a guide book on morality, and removing the legal age would probably rub a lot of people the wrong way, and cause some other people to do some rather stupid things, such as let their kids take loads of drugs because the government says it's ok.
