I've heard people say that before. Whether they're talking about drugs in general, or a specific drug (Ex. "Everyone should smoke weed.").

This thread has nothing to do with whether or not drugs should be legal or not. Most of the people here in The Pit think drugs should be legal anyways. Not that I disagree, I just don't want to have that discussion for the millionth time.

Anyways, do you agree with the statement? Do you think everyone should experiment with drugs? Or are you more of the persuasion just to let people do as they please, and if they don't want to, then that's dandy? Or perhaps you think nobody should ever use drugs?

And by drugs, I'm mainly talking about the illegal ones, like Weed, Cocaine, Ecstasy, and harder stuff like Heroin, Meth, etc.

Well, I don't use drugs so obviously I don't agree with the statement. I'm of the opinion just to generally let people decide for themselves. I find most reasons for why everyone should use drugs is because of some ridiculous stoner philosophy equating drugs to enlightenment.

I do not agree. I don't see the point of using drugs. I don't really care if others do though... well in most cases at least.

Edit: Actually I would try to stop people I know from doing most drugs.

That's me. Personally I will never try it because of the risks.

That said, using such substances is not for everyone


x1000 times agreed. Entheogens can be extremely spiritual, informative and helpful. But without appropriate set and setting it just aint gonna work.

No, I don't think everyone should use drugs. A lot of drug users shouldn't use drugs. If you have an addictive personality it's a very rocky road to travel. If you're unstable you might lose all desire to do anything except use. Then there's those kids who'll put anything and everything into their bodies, not knowing what it is and end up overdosing.

Drugs are fantastic if you can use them responsibly and with caution. I used to be one of those, "I'll never touch drugs. Ever. Even if there's a fire," type people. But I've always been interested in learning about them. Eventually my interest sparked desire, and now I'm at a point where there isn't a lot that I've done, but there's not a lot that I wouldn't try. However, anything involving smoking or needles isn't for me.

If you don't want to use drugs, you won't. If you do want to use drugs, maybe you will at some point. No harm in choosing one side or the other if you can handle it.

Eh. I wouldn't try to force anyone, but I think that weed, in particular, is worth trying for anyone. But if you don't want to, more power to you. But I don't like it when anti-drug fellers dog on the users.
My sig? Nice.

No. The only time I feel someone should try drugs is if they want to. Same as drinking or smoking cigarettes.

This can be applied to anything, mind you.

Well if you are going to be talking about drugs at least try some once, I respect people who don't want to try them, as long as they don't judge

Pot is fine, but that's where I draw the line personally.

If my buddy's want to go further ok, but If I ever see them doing crack and stuff then they get beat to a pulp.

So long as my friends and family are ok then I'm happy.
#23
Don't like drugs personally, but I realize that they're an option for a lot of people, and I don't really believe and one person has the experience in life to tell everyone else with 100% certainty that they should always try drugs, or anything, really.

That said, with all the crap that goes into food and medicines, most people are taking more drugs than they realize already.

I hear that a lot actually. People claiming that alcohol isn't a drug, it's completely different cuz you can buy it in a store.

Obviously people who think alcohol isn't a drug have never used any other drugs.

Should be up to the person whether they want to try it or not. Some time in my life I'd like to try pot (I'm sure it'll be in the next few years), but everyone shouldn't do it just to do it. Nobody should try things, especially things like hard drugs (heroin, meth, etc...) just to experience it for no reason. I definitely don't want to go skydiving. Some people think I should just try it, but **** that.

Disclaimer: I'm coming down off an eighth of shrooms. But I honestly think that everyone should try some sort of psychoactive drug (caffeine doesn't count) atleast once in their life to see what its like. I just don't understand people who never touch them without even trying.

Generally the people that don't view alcohol as a drug only hold that view due to the fact that it's legal.

They seem harmful and I wouldn't trust myself to only have one.

I've never used illegal drugs, and I don't have any particular desire to. But most people I know who are drug users do reasonably well in life. I would say that weed and LSD should be considered for legalization, and possibly even Ecstasy and cocaine. Obviously the user would assume responsibility for their actions and the consequences, especially for drugs like x and coke. There should be a stiff penalty for driving high, like there is for driving drunk. But when used 'responsibly', the impact of these drugs can be minimal. It is possible, but probably not pleasant, to be a functioning coke addict, and the only person you'd be hurting is yourself.

That said, there's a reason certain drugs are illegal. Meth, PCP, and crack (although that's a bit of a double standard if I said that coke proper is sort of ok) users are NOT fun to be near when they're high. Or even when they're not high. And huffing paint and stuff can seriously **** you up.

It's hard to say.

I think a lot of people use the term "drugs" interchangeably with "illegal drugs." I seen a lot of people do that. Even if someone knows caffeine and alcohol are drugs they don't really see them as such.

Read The Emperor Wears No Clothes. We live in a corrupt society where not even the president, who's suppose to be cool and revolutionary, can acknowledge that the first few presidents grew their own weed.

I picked the fourth option. I have heard people say everyone should experiment with all drugs at least once, and it is so incredibly stupid to think that. Some (probably most) people simply cannot handle the effects of drugs.

But there's many drugs that have virtually no harm, like weed, shrooms, acid. These drugs also don't really have any addictive factors, especially shrooms/acid.

That's not the point. Some people are just uncomfortable about anything that changes perception, that's personal and not something you should be shoving your nose in because drugs "work" for you.
