I just wanted to say to one person who said drugs are illegal because society makes them illegal. Thats not true, one bit.


I'm gonna make this quick and simple.

Drugs, are illegal, because the government(who ever that is) makes ALOT of money, on the war on drugs. Makes you think about the war in iraq huh? Its the same thing. If there is money to be made, they're there doing it.

Drugs are not illegal because people are concerned for our health obviously, because if that was the case cigarettes and alcohol would have been removed long ago.

The more inmates in a prison, the more money these powers make. So get as many inmates in for what ever you can charge them for. Which is teh reason a majority are in for drugs. Half, just drug possesion, not even selling.

Its bullshit. :smile:

Yah that is right. Psychedelic drugs are illegal because people do they with reckless irresponsibility. If you have to defend yourself against this comment the you are exactly who I don't like. Your the reason why they are illegal. If you read this and say oh that doesn't apply to me then you are on my level. Just like the stupid alcoholic that can't handle his shit and gets DUI after DUI, I don't like you morons who use psychedelic drugs and give us credible users a bad name.

I think that psychedelic drugs should be treated with utmost respect and that the users should have higher standards. This way we can be looked at by society as better then alcohol because all the idiots can just drink and ruin thier lives.

So could all psychedelic drug users that are irresponsible either A. change your behaviour to highly responsible or B. go find another place to make yourself look like shit because we don't need to look like shit as a community.

Thanks.




Ignorant post.

People use many things irresponsibly, that doesn't give the government the right to take the freedom of the responsible users.

I don't agree with irresponsible use, I don't agree with scapegoatism either- whether it's the government using drugs to justify cultural oppression, or a self-righteous user claiming irresponsible users justify the government's actions.

No, people don't have the right to use drugs in a manner that puts others in harms way. No, the government does not have the right to oppress me for the actions of another. No, one wrong does not make another right.

OP you are pretty conceited and self righteous it is none of your business what people put into there bodies and how they use those chemicals. What you view as irresponsible some people view as fun and what you view as enlightening some people view as crazy.

BTW I don't use psychedelics to have fun I would but I never do have any fun while taking them I take them to perform psychological research on myself, but I don't cry about the way others use these drugs nor do I feel I am any better than they are (which you obviously do).

Live and let live, and don't use the government banned drugs because of you speech. My state made salvia illegal for no reason other than it will "mess you up" and make you think different. They are just fascists and you are doing exactly what they want putting the blame on the people they are trying to opress.

I've used psychedelics recreationally, and it often resulted in spiritual benefits.

These separations are artificial and childish.

"Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window, psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behavior and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong, and government and society spend a lot of money educating you into being a loyal worker, consumer, debt payer and citizen."

Wow that quote is probably the most accurate reason I have ever heard for psychedelics being illegal. Who said that?

Im not convinced that its true, explain to me why its obvious that the government is scared of people "opening their eyes" without using the words "man" and "like".
