I don’t think you can be a successful scientist without trying it at least once.
It permanently stretches your mind. Steve Jobs said it was crucial to his success and so did Francis Crick, the father of genetics. This usually comes in the form of a tiny piece of paper. If you’re over thirty, try cutting the paper into quarters and see where that takes you. Fourteen Drugs and Pot - Taki's Magazine

Your Say

OT: But then, maybe not.


The Japanese: nuked too much or not enough? Or, perhaps, they are just way too weird for any part of Western PC culture to deal with.*

*They are starting to build aircraft carriers again; so 'deal with' is going to be there.

McInnes can be a *douche par excellence*, but this is actually a pretty good assessment of what these drugs REALLY do.

I think it is foolish for people to take alcohol or any drugs other than alcohol, but that's just me and my opinion with twenty-seven years clean and sober propping me up.

If I look at people consuming drugs from the DPJK perspective I realize a tactical advantage: folks under the influence of booze or any other drug are impaired. Motor skills, judgment, hand/eye coordination, spatial and temporal perceptions all diminished. It sure makes 'em vulnerable.

I did quite a bit of this stuff back in the 70's and the hallucenogenics are definitely in a different class all the way around. Some call it expansion and some call it awareness but all in all it offers an incite that most will never know. I probably won't do them again (and haven't for more than 30 years), but I'm glad I did back then.

ghost: me too. We went out there and we found our way back. It's kinda pathetic to see guys my age (67) that still wear tie-dyed shirts and patchouli oil and sing Michael Row the Boat Ashore. Stuck in a time warp they are.

It was fun, huh? And nobody got chromosome damage and gave birth to lobster zombie children. (Or did they?)
Author didn't mention Salvia D. Definitely the uncontested heavyweight champion of hallucinogens. More fun than anyone ever needs to have- so much fun that almost no one does it twice.

jwm: most of it was kinda sorta fun as best as I can remember. it is heartening to find other folks that rode that bus and got past it with age. Um, growing up I think they call it. So when the newbies come around with some crap they think they just discovered brand new I think, When I see some of these folks running their game I want to say “Kid, I ran with bikers, shot junk, robbed banks; my hands have taken lives and saved lives; I worked with the Billy Graham Crusade; I got a million miles of highway under my ass, slept with dogs, danced with angels, I got screwdrivers older than you … what ya gonna show me, uh?”
But I don’t. Nowadays I just kinda watch it all going down.

...and you wonder why you never get invited to parties.

Never used any of them, never will (yeah, I know that the many chemical equivalents are dished out in hospitals. But on that note, I've never finished a bottle of prescription pain meds in my life).
I want all these drugs decriminalized because; A. I don't give a shit about anyone that makes the personal decision to take them. Have a nice trip! B. All our rights, & privacy have been lost because of drugs and the "War on Terror".
Because of the War on Drugs I'm now more afraid of the police than I am of criminals. We can fix this. Take away the tool that's being used to chip away at the Constitution.
