    I dunno i tend to overthink the issue but I reckon if at this exact point in time certain illegal drugs were to be legalised it would be v damaging.

    imo it would have been alright if gov policies hadn’t been so draconian to begin with. For instance many drugs that are now considered class a mega dangerous existed back in the day without serious consequences; I guess opium had always been a little intense but that’s one of the few that exhibit actual physical dependency.

    nonetheless, today most of your average people don’t know how to handle drugs; whereas people who have circumvented the law have put real effort into it so maybe would know better about the possible dangers…

    but then again who knows :/

    Although excessive drug use is known to damage peoples mental and physical health, it actually takes a lot to do this and even then recovery is often possible.

    Its sad when people die but then again as you get older you find you lose a lot of your friends before their time through road traffic collisions, other accidents, suicide, prison, murder – life is unfortunately harsh for some people. Lots of people take risks with their lives that don’t always pay off.

    I’ve seen as many problems caused by enforcement and prohibition.

    Back in the 90s when I first started raving pills were treated as “real” class A drugs and many people I knew got caught for 10 or 20 pills they were sorting out for their mates, they went from having no criminal record to doing a 5 year prison term.

    OK most of the time they got out after 1-2 years and conditions in British prisons aren’t as harsh as other countries, so for a young man often doing a bit of time isn’t seen as anything major, but on release they often found it impossible to get a “normal” job because of their criminal record. (these days readily available newspaper archives of court reports can actually show up someones past long after the conviction is spent!)

    it was at that time many of these people gave up on being productive members of society and started doing harder class A drugs and/or dealing them – they felt their cards were already marked for life as “druggie scum” and it became a self-fulfiling prophecy.

    OTOH Unless people are actuallly sociopaths or no longer care about their own lives (a seperate mental illness in itself) most people actually do know when to scale back their substance use when it gets to the point it is hurting themselves or others. Peer pressure can actually work both ways – I’ve seen a lot of my younger friends sort themselves out rather than need the nanny state to do the work for them..

    I think that if all drugs were legal they wouldn’t be so appealing anymore.

    there’s definitely truth in that

    if weed had always been legal we probably wouldn’t have the super-strength strains that we do now (part of the reason these have been developed is that a less bulky substance is easier to produce and transport). and even if they had been developed it wouldn’t have become a right of passage for people trying to rebel to smoke weed

    I wish I could still get hold of some of the african and thai grass I used to smoke. I don’t smoke cannabis anymore because I don’t enjoy the very strong strains that are all I can buy

    very true; i find some of the more hardcore drug using friends i know underestimate the power of alcohol for instance lol…

    the idea of getting away with a bag of pills in your shoe, or going to the loos to chomp out some lines definitely ads a lot to the experience. i dunno about people who take them at home for enlightenment purposes though :/
