Informed Peers

don't know if this has been posted before, but I just found it browsing around. I think there are at least one of each at the shroomery.

A lot of us here could probably be considered drug geeks with all of the shit we know compared to the average person.

Nice article... I'm totally a drug geek. I sell em and tell everyone alot of shit about the stuff their doing, and I'm doing the Ph.D thing too. People like having someone that knows this stuff around, cause most people are totally uneducated, or miseducated.

I find that your average drug user hates the drug geek.
Your sitting at a party, and all of a sudden, you hear the girl next to you say something like "Ecstasy is actually synthesized from mescaline."
You could not say anything, but you can't stop yourself from correcting them. They feel like a dumbass, and you look all high and mighty.
Awkward silences ensue.

Yeah- we've all had that happen- and there is, for the record, no way not to correct soemone when they say that their rolls are mostly coke or heroin or that they took mushies and got chased by a mailbox. It's all I can do not to STRIKE these people, let alone correct them. Good lord being a drug geek is a cursed blessing....

Drug users, drug geeks, and the whole lot of em make for mundane conversation, unless they speak of trip reports and philosophy. You could probably "classify" me as a geek. Or a psychledelic mind/couch surfer.

i'm a drug geek...but i never bring it up in conversation, and only if someone asks me a question will i talk about anything drug related (i used to try to correct people and all that, but quickly learned that most people need and want to learn these things for themselves)

the worst used to be being around family, and have an uncle say something along the lines of 'pot/lsd/mushrooms melt your brain' and i have to sit there smiling and nodding...now i don't care as i find myself smiling and nodding to most things they say

I try to only correct someone if they're about to do something dangerous, but sometimes I just can't help myself when I hear a statement that is just mind-numbingly stupid.

I hate it when someone tells me I'm wrong when I know I'm 100% correct.

This douchebag that was my buddy's friend would sit there and crack his neck and sit there staring blank in his 'intense flashback'.

What the fuck ever. Let them be misinformed.

I am defenetly one. My friends always ask me for info on drugs because I know. And if I don't know I research it on Wiki, Erowids, or some other place. Man I am an awesome person. :-D

yeah i would certainly consider myself a drug geek. i spend a decent amount of free time researching psychedelics on wiki, or erowid, reading trip reports, and pursuing the experiences

like many of you said i used to try to bring up my drug knowledge with friends and aquaintances when conversations came up. but i now usually let them do their own research

Goddamnit my uncle is the worst for this. Some old trip-head-turnt-old-ogre He spent ages arguing with me that cubensis are the most potent mushroom.
I printed off a comparison of the psilocin/psilocybin levels in certain mushrooms and that soon shut him up.

Nowdays I just avoid the topic of drugs with everyone unless they ask me a question (normally whats *insert psychedelic/research chem here* like)

Mushrooms are 100% the least understood and informed (if you know what I mean) of all drugs. Everyone comes out with different rumour bullshit everywhere I go. I've given up on the topic, I'm not gonna argue with someone who isn't growing anymore. :smile:

It's almost like an information war between accurate information - which I'm sure most shroomerites are crusaders of - and disinformation - lsd melts your brain.

What I don't understand is, it seems the rate at which disinformation spreads is much faster than that which information is spread. We need more drug geeks!

Interesting...yeah alot of my friends will come to me when they have questions about drugs...i think it's kind of cool, i can usually answer their questions or atleast give them some insight.I learned alot of my drug knowledge from when i was kicked out of high school for a year and still read lots of drug books/articles to this day.

yeah, it's funny how people will say something wrong about drugs and when you try to correct them, they swear that what they were saying was right. :mad2:

I have ran into that a lot.
