Just face it, this is entirely your opinion. If you have a real argument please address my points instead of going off on a tangent about how much you hate drugs and drug culture.What practical use does doing drugs have in a technologically advancing society, and is it worth the mental, physical, social, and monetary drawbacks?
Ive been reading a lot of what you've been saying Xenomit, and you have a completely warped sense of logic about this.
What is the beneficial case for butter? It's completely bad for you, you can live without it, and nutritionally speaking it does nothing for you. By your standards it doesnt have any benifitial technological advancements for society, and is not worth the mental, physical, social, and monetary drawbacks. But we are responsibly adults and we enjoy it while acknowledging it's drawbacks.
Drugs are only a short step further than that. And contradictory to what the government fueled, hangover of Nixon's failed war on drugs, propaganda says, illegal drugs like cannabis are actually ranking below legal alternatives like tobacco and alcohol in terms of detrimental effects.
In this society we have built a colossal industry on the sale of fast food, which is terrible for you, it increased all sorts of things like heart attack, high cholesterol and shortened life expectancy, yet for some reason nobody has a problem with that? But the same ethics are thrown out the window when it comes to addressing drugs just because the government enforce that opinion on people.
I think you just have the wrong information on drugs, and you have some warped idea that everyone who tries even a little bit of weed is going to turn into a pasty, long haired, school drop-out who sells their body on street corners for their next hit. It reeeeeeeeally is a silly way to think.
