No. Why would I? I don't hang out with druggies anyway.

People have given me pot before and I took a few puffs, but I didn't feel anything positive or negative, or even anything pleasurable. I just felt a little dizzy and full of smoke. I can't understand the addiction or appeal. But then again, I don't understand "normal" people anyway.

Can anyone answer the five questions I asked in my previous post in this thread?

You know on the subject , what about mescaline? It seems like it is LSD, but with not as many set backs (but more nausea) .

1. First, if marjijuana is just a plant called cannibis, then why is it classified as a drug? How would a DEA officer justify this classification?

2. Second, it's a common cliche to assume that everyone (or most people) tried smoking pot when they were in high school. Is that true that the majority of people tried pot in high school? How come I didn't get the chance?

3. What I don't get is this: If most people tried pot in high school, then why aren't millions of teens across the USA in jail? Aren't anti-drug laws in the US very strict and severe? How are they able to smoke pot like it's easy to get and easy to get away with? Am I missing something?

Are anti-drug laws with their severe penalties we all hear about only directed at those who sell drugs, and not the millions of teens and young people who try them out?

4. Is it true that marijuana is a "gateway drug" in that once you start on it, you move on to other more dangerous drugs like cocaine and heroine? Or is that just a myth and scare tactic to discourage you from trying it?

5. Is there any real scientific evidence that marijuana harms your brain or body in any way? Is it a conspiracy? Is there such a thing as a person who smokes pot regularly who is also very productive in their life?
The answer to all of these questions is:

Marijuana is not that big of a deal, especially when it is used in moderation. Most people don't view it as such. Alcohol is much worse for you. Unfortunately, there is not a ton of scientific research on it since it's been illegal for so long.

As far as the other drugs, LSD, shrooms, and Ecstasy are not really a big deal either. It's very difficult to overdose on any of these (despite what the media tells you).

The stuff that you have to worry about is basically anything that you have to snort or inject (cocaine, heroin, meth, etc). I wouldn't recommend doing any of these things. The previously mentioned drugs are good for spiritual and social enlightenment when used in moderation.
