What do you do when people make fun of psychedelics?
    #6770953 - 04/10/07 05:57 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Like today when I arrived at school and was getting ready to take a test some dude was like "yeah man, I took peyote and got 1800 on my SAT." And then "I took ACID once taking a test and I wasn't even there." And everyone was laughing. I guess it's funny. At the time I felt like he was making fun of psychedelics. I feel he made those comments when he saw me because he may have overheard me talking about growing San Pedro. Maybe everyone knows I'm a freak.


But the point is what would you do in this situation.

I just shrug it off and chalk another one up to not being a part of "normal" society. It's nothing.

It's just I wish people would have more of an open mind.

Wishful thinking I know.

One more thing tho, I may be imagining all this cuz i'm on a looot of caffeine.

If people are spouting lies I try and correct them. If they're just making fun of them with no real reason I usually ignore them, in a free world I think I would punch him right in the face.

Who knows, maybe he was serious?

I live happily in the knowledge of what they've done for me and my outlook on life, and shrug it off.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Id tell him, "hes a retard who knows nothing about the profound impact those drugs have made on the society hes living in today, that hes been brainwashed by corporate america and the DARE idiots who are destroying public perception of these chemicals and halting future research that could benefit mankind."

id say it loudly and so others can hear then id spit at his feet.


but thats if he made the comment directed towards me, in a negative connotation. Or just spreading bullshit for no reasn.

id get into a conversation with the guy and tell him how stupid those comments are. then i'd open up a can of whoopass. then i'd drink the can of whoopass. then id explain with words rather than violence because violence is never the anwser.

it is especially bad when somebody you know is talking shit about psychedelics basically right to your face, when they know you do them. yeah, the best thing to do is ignore and shrug it off. petty words will not help them to understand, it's all in the experience..

It doesn't really bother me when people poke a little fun at them, even when its in spite of me.

However it does bother me when people jokingly spread misinformation, if the can keep an open mind I'll correct them but if not I'd rather let them wallow in their incomprehension on the subject instead of ripping on them like a pretentious ass hat, a quality which bothers me much more than ignorance anyways.

Psychedelics aren't for everyone. People make fun of everything, from gays to polish people to crack cocaine to AIDS. I'd let it go.

There's no need to be pompous and explain to people that you're realized or different or anything just because you eat acid. They won't get it, and they don't need to. Just use your experiences to be a better person - otherwise all the soul-searching was in vain anyway, right?

You reach, eventually, a point in your life where convincing people of things they don't want to understand becomes more of a chore than the pleasure you get from educating the interested and genuinely curious.

Some people like to wrestle acceptance from idiots and close-minded people.

I know what I know, and sometimes I'll share it. If I were in that situation, I would look at those kids with the knowledge that they clearly are making up stories to try and impress the ignorant and innocent.

And I'd smile, knowing exactly what they're missing.

:smile:

I might think something negative about the person. Ultimately it probably wouldn't bother me in the least, and I think if you let shit like that get to you, you should try on getting to the point where shit like that doesn't get to you.

Ultimately, whether it's psychedelics or fucking super princess peach for the Nintendo DS, theres no reason at all why another persons opinions on such matters should get to you.

Now, if we're talking about serious right/wrong moral issues, something along the lines of drugs being legal in general, well, fuck a mofo who says they shouldn't, and maybe thats what I need to work on...


BUT GOD DAMN IF IT DOESNT PISS ME OFF.

OH no it's not eating me from the inside out if that's what you mean.

You known we were all standing in the hall waiting for the teacher to show up and I walked up and the first thing out this dude's mouth was "Dude man, I took peyote on my SAT and made 1800" blah blah.

At first I wanted to say something but then I thought who cares blah.

I'm doing psychedelics for my own well being I could care less about what others think.
