I was only a recreational user of pot/hash between 13 and 22 years old.  The kids in the neighborhood where I grew up got into heavier stuff and I saw how their lives were pretty much screwed up, so i stayed away.

I did not smoke because the Beatles or anyone else did.  I did it for me.  It was nice and I enjoyed it, but I'm past it now.

I imagine that will be the extent of my drug use too. I have absolutely no interest in anything heavier than pot. I figure I'll do it as long as it's fun and it doesn't get in the way of living my life well.

By the way, it's good to know this stuff isn't complete taboo here. Some interesting stories…a-hard-days-night-paul-7

There was a time when I was younger when I didn't know anyone who didn't take drugs in some form. Now it's pretty much the opposite. Or at least nobody really talks about it. Maybe that's a sign of getting older.

I work in the media which has a reputation for being full of cokeheads, but in honesty I don't see it all that often. I'm pretty sure random drug tests would be unenforceable if they tried to introduce them here though – people wouldn't put up with it and the unions would have a field day.

When I was a teenager there was said to be a cottage in the countryside near my hometown which was being used as an LSD factory, which meant there was a ready availability of acid for a couple of years until it was discovered by police. Soon after that I went to university and didn't know any dealers, so I largely gave up taking anything.

I imagine everyone in my state to be at least regulars when it comes to cannabis.  It's just customary that they don't talk about it when they're adults… same for anything else.  You just grow out of needing to tell people.  When you're young and everything's new it's exciting and you want to brag about being that much more involved in the world (or rather, detached and in a world of your own…) but once you get older it's just another part of life.

 

So those of you who say you don't know someone… you probably do.  It's just a hush-hush topic. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

MadiYashi's story is pretty shocking indeed. What kind of sick bastard doses a 7-year old for chrissakes?! That's even worse than giving it to a dog or cat.

Well luckily in the States they have a synthetic version that you can buy at most herbal shops called K2 that has gotten me quite stoned on a number of occasions.

I wasn't sure whether to post this in the drugs or religion thread. I was browsing my web stats and saw that this site was referring users: http://forum.grasscity.com/spi…..dudes.html

Pretty glad I don't smoke weed.

I'm not sure exactly how I feel about drugs. Obviously, growing up being told how bad it is makes you a bit cautious, and I don't plan on trying LSD. I might eventually try marijuana, but I'm not sure. A lot of people are talking about having tried drugs at about 13, and that seems really weird to me. I don't know ANYONE that's done drugs (well, that is, anyone at school), especially not in my year. I suppose it depends on where you grow up. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

LOL at you calling yourself "Paul McCartney" when you haven't even smoked pot!a-hard-days-night-paul-11 

 

But that's cool; don't let anybody make up your mind for you. At the very least, kids should probably avoid 'em until they approach the legal drinking age or thereabouts.

From what I heard it's like taboo over in the south… I'm in the northwest and it's just a normal thing here.  No one says anything about it but we all know.

I smoked weed quite a bit when I was a teenager. I won't do it again though. The last time I did I freaked out over paranoia. 

As for you who want to try it. Don't make a big thing out of it, and don't seek it out. Just do it when the time is right – and be smart. Don't go around driving!

Good advice Ronnie. I may give it a go at some point, but I think for now I'll just leave it alone.

The hysteria that caused so many narcotics to be made illegal (at least in the USA) was largely racially motivated.

Cocaine, for example, was recreationally used for a long time by persons in high places.  Even Pope Leo XIII indulged in cocaine.  And the narcotic was the basis for Coca-Cola back before it was criminalized.

The pious creeps that dominate my country got "experts" to testify in the early 20th Century that most of the attacks on white women by black men were due to cocaine-fueled frenzy.  Shortly after, in 1914, cocaine was made illegal in the USA.

Not long after that, the same people started pointing fingers at blacks for "reefer madness."  This continued through the 50s and 60s…the 50s beatniks and the 60s hippies were seen as straying from the White Way by the lure of pot which they got from blacks.

Certainly some dangerous drugs, like PCP and heroin, should be illegal.  But by and large, many should be made legal, regulated, and taxed.  The incredible sums of money wasted on drug law enforcement simply do not pass the reasonableness test.

Great post. Plus I know that legalizing pot would certainly help the US economy.

Hallucinogenic drugs have been used as religious sacraments for thousands of years.  Peyote stashes have been found dating to 7000 years ago.

John, Paul, George and Ringo were simply carrying on an ages-old religious tradition.

No problem with legalizing pot – can't think of a single person who ever got arrested trying to steal Twinkies.

A guy came to my American history class in high school to talk about the "evils" of pot. If I remember correctly, he was caught doing something like that. All I remember is that one of my classmates was annoyed by my laughter. But whatever, it was hilarious.
