Drugs Are Really Exciting I think drugs are some of the neatest things about the world. I find almost everything about them interesting. Part of the reason why is because they're considered so "taboo" or "bad" by most of society. As for expanding consciousness, they can in a way. Perception and thoughts get set into familiar and fixed ways. You come to believe that this description of the world IS how it really is. Powerful drugs can knock you out of those set tracks for a little bit. It's profound at first, but the returns of those experiences dimish very rapidly. A fictional description of what I'm talking about is well described in the book "Journey to Ixtlan" by Carlos Castaneda. You dont need drugs to alter or expand consciousness, but doing so without them requires a lot of work and discipline that most people dont have.

My professional opinion, and I professionaly handle more drugs in a week and deal with more drug users in a day than most see in a lifetime, is that all drugs should be 100% legal for possession and use, including so called "hard drugs" like Cocaine Base (crack) and Methamphetamine (Speed). I attach no moral significvance to drugs. No drug is inherently "good" or "bad". However the punishment for driving under the influence of them should be death.

All of this is a direct result of drugs being illegal and thus highly profitable. When was the last time you heard of liquor dealers shooting it out in a turf war? The only time I've ever heard of anything like it was back during Prohibition, when alcohol was illegal and thus highly profitable. Legalize it so it can be regulated and taxed.

I haven't done a single drug (other than alcohol) in more than ten years. When I was in college, I tried acid a few times. It was good acid. Really good. All I can say is that if you haven't tried acid, there's nothing that I can tell you that can adequately describe it. Un-frickin-real. In college I was drunk about 5 nights a week...real drunk. I drove far too often - as did everyone. I was far more dangerous driving drunk than I was sitting at home staring at ceiling tiles while tripping on acid. I know it's pretty bad to say this, but I'm glad I tried it. (ALTHOUGH I DON'T ENCOURAGE ANYONE TO TRY IT) It really shows how fragile human consciousness is, how fleeting reality is. As in the Matrix, reality is just electrical impulses going through your mind. LSD makes that shockingly clear.

Question: Do you think you and society would have been better off if we had locked you away for twenty years or so because of your bad habits?
The major religions expand horizons too. I'm a Buddhist and that's a major goal of the entire religion (if you could call Buddism a religion).
View Quote
So how do we tell the difference between the expanded horizons you claim from Buddhism and those that others claim from LSD?
I think that illegal drugs are the #2 problem in this nation right behind/tied together with illigitmacy (and bad spelling!). Either we actually get serious about fighting dope or we don't. Most other civil countries don't have the problem we do because the enforce stiff laws. Get busted with a joint in Japan, Singapore, or Saudi Arabia.

OK, you are wrong there. First, the currently illegal drugs were not a major social problem until they were made illegal. You can read the history of that subject at [url]http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/Library/studies/cu/cumenu.htm[/url] Nearly all of the current problems happened as a direct result of the prohibition laws. See the first several chapters of that book for a good short history. For another excellent and funny history of the laws see [url]http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/History/whiteb1.htm[/url] In short, the drug laws were the product of racism, ignorance, and nonsense. And BTW, you are wrong about places like Singapore having solved the problem. In the first place, the government of Singapore kills more people for drug offenses than the drugs kill themselves. It ought to be obvious that is not a good solution. In the second place, they continue to have a serious drug abuse problem. The reason is that, of all the methods of dealing with drug abuse, law enforcement is the least cost-effective. (See the Rand Corp website for research on that topic or see Major Studies of Drugs and Drug Policy at [url]http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer[/url]
Our gangs and the rest of the issues that come with them - the killings, the crime, the urban blight are all due to their abilities to sell dope to their turf.

Just like during alcohol prohibition, they are due to the laws that made drugs more valuable than gold. See the references above. If you want more, just ask. I have a ton of them besides that. For example, if you want to read some juicy quotes about the effects of alcohol prohibition on crime see [url]http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/debate/miranda_devine.htm[.url] Don't be surprised if a lot of that info there sounds exactly like the results of our modern drug war.
I wouldn't mind pot getting made legal - it's decriminalized here in California but would really think hard about life altering dope like crack and meth.

Read the book I linked above. Among other things, it points out that cocaine was freely available without any restrictions at one time. It was even included in Coca-Cola, and Pepsi-Cola, and they sold cocaine cheroots (crack). Kids could buy it without restrictions and producers didn't even have to put the contents on the label. Even under those extreme conditions we didn't have the problems we have today. And, if you care to read much of the history, you will find that gun control laws are largely the product of the effects of drug prohibition. The first and best example was the National Firearms Act of 1933 that immediately followed the gang warfare of alcohol prohibition. In short, if you are a gun owner and you support drug prohibition then you are shooting your right to own guns in the foot. As I have always said, the people who support gun prohibition share something in common with the people who support drug prohibition. Neither one of them knows anything about the subject. You can prove that in both cases in a matter of minutes by just asking them a few simple questions about the subject. Wanna try?

You are unusual then. The research shows that while many people with experiment with LSD, very few take it for more than a couple of years at most. The most common explanation is that they found it interesting but not interesting or fun enough to continue using on a regular basis. Twelve hours is a long time to be stoned that bad, not like the mild buzz one would get from a couple of beers. Just for the record, the research was also unable to establish any real harm done to anyone by taking LSD. Some people had bad experiences, but those were rare, and there weren't any long-term effects that could be tied to LSD. Even the "enlightment" that some claimed from it didn't seem to last. You can find a good discussion of it at [url]http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/Library/studies/cu/cumenu.htm[/url]

Just a tip -- I have never met anyone who suggested any change in any law that would allow anyone to pose a hazard to anyone else, while intoxicated, or not, on anything. That is, except silly prohibitionists trying to set up a straw man argument.

So someone who gives their kid a glass of wine ought to be killed? That would wipe out most of Europe, and a good part of the US. Just a hint here, CMJ -- the majority of kids experiment with drugs before they reach maturity. Most of them don't wind up with any problems as a result. Psychological studies show that those kids who do experiment with drugs are, overall, pyschologically healthier than those who don't. The reason is that experimentation with lots of things is a sign of good, healthy development and those who are afraid to experiment with new things are depriving themselves of valuable life experiences. I am not recommending drugs for kids, just telling you that for the vast majority of them, drugs are not a major disaster. Most of them will get over it and ultimately realize that life is better when you are sober most of the time.

Perhaps the most arresting idea suggestive of what might lie ahead in a kind of calculus about eventualities comes from computer whiz kid Steve Jobs. Asked why IBM with all its hired brains and money hadn't first come up with the personal computer, Jobs allegedly responded: "Perhaps they didn't take enough acid."
