This article has a graph showing the harmfulness of various drugs. Discuss!



There is a drug thread for shit like this. I don't know why the pit is being hit with a shit ton of drug threads right now, I suspect it has something to do with this new scaling system.

I don't really agree with it entirely, but it's a step in the right direction.
OH NOES! My sig is gone.

It probably has something to do with the smoke inhalation, since it's the most common way to put THC into your system. Ecstasy is one of the safest drugs, you just have to keep yourself hyrdated (but not over-hydrated).

Did you read the article?

The work was carried out by a cross-disciplinary group of rather eminent scientists, including Prof. Colin Blakemore, the head of the Medical Research Council (equivalent to the NIH). The study involved surveying two groups; a national group of leading psychiatrists, and a more general group made up of experts from a range of disciplines including forensics, pharmacology, the police and legal services, chemistry, and epidemiology.

That was the only thing I completely disagreed with. Solvents are incredibly dangerous, especially if done wrong.

Definetly one of the more accurate charts but weed is up too high.

The problem with E is the other shit that could be in it.

Pure MDMA is quite safe.

How could weed be more dangerous than Ecstacy.

Weed can't kill you. I know people that have died from E.

or if your into the hard drugs..assrammer is the result.

the readings look good to me , and true i think , exept for the weed , extacy part

Green will be higher than ecstasy due to it's link with psychosis, scizophrenia (sp?), etc.
Though there is no long term research into ecstasy's effect on the brain.

LSD does a lot of damn to your body.

brain and nerve damage is not damage after all then. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
