Trying to discuss drugs intelligentlyI'd be interested in reading your description. Link?
It was a reply to someones facebook status that said: "Why do people feel the need to get drunk almost every weekend?? It's ridiculous!!"
To which I replied:
"Mental intoxication is a desire built into our psyche by thousands of years of culture. The ability to change our mental chemistry and be as if we were something other than what we are is actually rather fascinating. The commercial and modern degradation of our possibilities with this has limited most people to the use of only alcohol to achieve this, but it is still understandable to want to consistently experiment with the idea. Alcohol use, while being a lame drug in comparison to the many other more enriching substances, dates all the way back to ancient egyptians. Either way it's easy to understand logically and hard to be too upset when people get a little excited and over-do it. I know that through my own drug experimentation I became a much more loving and spiritual person because I was able to feel and see things I used to not be able to. Although I suppose what you're talking about is abuse. Which is more so when a weak minded person makes a false connection between a substance and an ability to achieve an emotion. But the substances should only be viewed as insight to a certain emotion or thought, not the actual way to achieve it."
TLDR; Drugs are good mmmmkay
