#107596 Your Drugs

Posted by Majestic on 26 April 2017 - 02:55 PM

drugfreeworld.org/drugfacts/cocaine/effects-of-cocaine.html

 

I think most, but not all drugs should be legal. I mean, the government makes certain drugs illegal to protect its citizens. You would die at an extremely young age if hardcore drugs like bath salts, cocaine, or crystal meth were heavily abused.

 

I agree. Coke, Methamphetamine, Heroin - they're all are known to cause adverse effects from heavy use.

 

However, the are a number of other illegal substances which have been researched, studied and documented to have either no, or minimal adverse effect on mental health. I believe those should be decriminalised, and people to be educated on potential dangers and responsible use of these things.

 

And when the government stop wasting money trying to hunt down these "criminals", they can put the money into better addiction therapy support.

 

It doesn't really makes a difference if it's illegal or not, addicts gonna be addicts.

"I've said everything I want to say. You disagree, and that's fine."

 

Proceeds to make two more posts, both directed at the person he was finished with in a lame attempt to convince them he's right. Alright. Edit button, champ.

 

OT: I've had enough trouble with over-the-counter medication. I've never touched any kind of illegal drug, and I have no plans to in the future. If you need to completely rewrite your mind in order to enjoy yourself, then I pity you.

 

And as an aside, thanks for contributing money to criminals. I'm sure the world thanks you for such a selfless act.

 

Yes, that was premature of me to say that. I enjoy myself very much so when I see friends, I am very much in touch with the fact that there is more to life than this stuff. I just see it just another thing to experience and do, just like gorging on some chocolate occasionally, or going on holiday. It makes for a nice change from the normal way of life, and afterwards I come back to reality, rest for a day, and go back to work. Life goes on.

 

The problem here Majestic is the fact that you defend this drug with your misconstrued hypothesis, believing yourself to be a scholar on the subject simply because you indulge and partake in the consumption of an illicit (not to mention illegal and highly dangerous) substance and then go on to accuse us of being defensive because of the fact that we don't agree with your distorted point of view?  You sound really condescending and think us uneducated in the matter. To that I chuckle at thee.

 

Perhaps the only naive person is YOU by thinking that  you could convince a board full of bright minded individuals that LSD is all right, simply because you have had a good experience.

 

I gotta be honest, there are better ways of utilizing your time than trying to convince me that this drug is "not too bad"

 

No amount of your wikipedia research with your dissertation sized replies can convince me otherwise. 

 

You are correct, in retrospect that last bit was, indeed a tad condescending. Though, I promise that was not the intent. I apologise that I came across that way. I do get a little passionate when I get into conversation about various subjects.

 

I do not believe myself to be a scholar, nor an expert, just somebody who is informed. And Wikipedia is not at all the source from which I get my information.

 

Here is a paper (on US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health) that was published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology.

 

If you don't want to read it, here's an excerpt:

A recent large population study of 130,000 adults in the United States failed to find evidence for a link between psychedelic use (lysergic acid diethylamide, psilocybin or mescaline) and mental health problems. 

 

Here is another paper posted on the same scientific paper journal.

 

If you don't want to read it, here is an excerpt:

Classic psychedelic use may occasion lasting improvements in mental health

 

I am now presenting you with factual information from reliable sources that directly supports my belief.

 

Please explain to me how I am being naive, this is scientific research that I am linking you to. Please also read this article which gives some interesting insight into why the general opinion of society over stuff like this is so low.

Finally decided to go back to a dual monitor setup.

How you ever 'decided' to go back to a single-monitor solution is beyond me. :P

Well, seeing as I've lost nearly seven stone now, I think it'd be a good time to update my contribution to this thread.

 

Here's me about a year and a half ago:

#93755 A riddle, for the thinkers.

Posted by Majestic on 04 August 2015 - 03:11 PM

The day runs, but the time walks.

The lamp burns, though the fuel is used.
The body, still; the mind, churning.
Duty is calling, yet he cannot hear.
 
If you get it (all of it, that is), then message me what it means, and I will say that you got it.

#88998 Define a Good Night

Posted by Majestic on 16 March 2015 - 10:57 PM

Something my sibs and I have done a couple times on holidays - grilling burgers over an open fire together, sitting out until it's too dark to see anything but the flames, leaving foil-wrapped potatoes in the embers while we go inside to assemble the burgers, eating and watching a fun movie.

I love having a good bonfire with some friends. My idea of a night out is not going down the club and getting smashed. My idea of a night out is having a bonfire, food and getting smashed in my back garden. Much easier to get home afterwards haha.

#87953 THE DEPRESSION THREAD

Posted by Majestic on 26 February 2015 - 01:45 PM

@Alraune

 

The purpose of this forum is not verbally abuse others, and then lecture them on how your opinion is superior and that 1960s style parenting is the way forward.

 

@Krynkle deals with his daily stresses in the way he feels works best. That's fine. His methods are immaterial to your life, and your happiness, so don't worry about it. Everybody has some kind of stress, let people work through them in their own way. Prejudice and arrogance will get you nowhere fast.
