Ages (how old?)
    #3522142 - 12/19/04 10:35 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

two part question....

a) how old were you when you tried your first psychedelic drug (shrooms, acid, or whatever)?

and b) what age would you say is too young to do these kind of substances?

18 when I first tried them

16 at the LEAST, but I would say 18 is a better idea..

1) i was 17

2) but 18-20 would probably be more responsible.

shouldn't this be in the Shroomery Polls forum?

first thing was mushrooms at the tender age of 13
i would say for most people that would be too young, especially when i look at a lot of 13 yr olds now, but even then i wasn't like wooo fun time im fucked up for most experiences

17 would be an ideal to first try things, when less shit is going on with ones brain and body chemistry

realistically, it depends on the person, i can't say 12 year olds are really ready, and even at 13 you have to be more mature than most of your peers

not suprisingly, many of the people i know who used mushrooms recreationally around 13-16 didn't like it too much, maybe because mushrooms aren't a complete joy ride?

a. 17  b. It all depends, there is no definitive answer except when you are ready. For some people this is 12, for others, never. Most are in between of course, but it varies greatly.  :shrug:

i was 14 when i tried shrooms, i started smoking weed at 13, like holio1 said it all depends on the person. i thought my mind could handle it and i did just fine

17 when I first experienced them.

I'd say it's probably a good idea to be safe and wait until the brain has been fully developed before doing drugs.

But not very many people wait that long... I didn't.

A) I was 14

B) Depends on their maturity. Could be as young as 13 if they were prepared for it, or could be never if they're not. Age is just a number, not a reflection of their personality and mystical nature.

I agree with that.... but I personally believe that it's better to wait until the brain has stopped developing so much.... or at least much healthier....

I was 17..... and I feel like it was a good age for me to experience this.... I know I wouldnt have been ready for it till I was at least 16.... and this year just seemed right

A) 21

B) I'm of the perhaps unpopular opinion that one should wait until something like the final years of college, or even after college, to partake. There's just too much development happening before then.

a.) i think i was 19
b.) it varies at what age a person is mentally ready for mind-altering substances, but i wouldn't encourage experimentation until at least 18

For the first part... I was 19. And as far as when a person should be able to take a psychoactive substance?

I think people should be able to do that at 21. Here is why... When someone is 19 or 18 they are just getting in college, it is bad enough that they are adapting to a new environment (Either college, or workforce) and a psychoactive substance might be a hindrance to them developing their skills to live their life. By 21, a person is in the routine of things, and understands + is responsible enough to make a decision like that.

However, I think that people should probably get liscenses to get a specific psychoactive substance upon completion of a class to educate them on the substance so that they are just not like "Hey I'm at a party, I'll try this!"

That is just my two-cents...
