I thought Timothy Leary was the LSD guy.

Too many laws already exist. Hope they are removing some and not adding.

I guess I don’t see what you are saying…:unsure:

Dealers are already taking legal THC and concentrating it to insane levels. This wax or dabs is close to 80-90% THC. Pre-teen and teen brains do not handle this well. If there is ANY underlying pysch issues they may get far worse. Local rehab hospital is seeing more and more teens with mania and delusions. NY Times had a article not long ago. I have first hand knowledge and now dealing with a partially broken teenage.
Now. Micro dose magic mushrooms and you may get the giggles. Old school trip with just a little more. I have no faith in the US government or big pharma to keep this sleeping dragon under control.
IMHO: This is the next opioid crisis.

MHO,,, it is being run from behind the big money, keep the fools high, they dont understand so they will do what they are told, because they cannot think for them selves. The government hates the person that can and does think for them selves,, with the dope, they cannot think for them selves, it might take 2 or 3 generations but they will control the masses, and thats what they want

I take it that you have never dealt with someone having psychotic delusions. They are controlled by NO ONE !

Unfortunately people make decisions. Some bad decisions. Some good decisions. Some stick needles in their bodys and die. I think Marlboros are like $9. a pack at the variety store. And lots of people buying them to get lung cancer. Makes no sense to me. But their choice.
Some like me just had a large serving of peach cobbler and didn't walk three miles today to burn it off.
I don't agree with any drug use unless your dieing of cancer then smoke up, pop a pill or whatever you need to help in your end time.
Dope is called dope becouse it makes a person a dope. Maine here is full of dopes. Lazy welfare dope using useless people. And were also overrun with hand holding "isn't it to bad your an addict" ACLU activist wanting to give all their poor souls everything for nothing. Enabling I think its called.
I agree mushrooms are bad news.

a lot of bad news out there

had a coworker at a place I used to work at, everyone KNEW he was into, well stuff. But nobody wanted to do anything, nobody wanted to help him and frankly most of the time he wouldn't take any help anyway because to "him", there was no problem.

So I learned a lot between working 20 years with him and then having dope head family members and dating a dope head. They'll do anything for it, they'll steal from their loved ones as well. GF at the time I thought she was a good one til I found some money missing. I figured I misplaced it while cleaning. A few weeks later she was supposed to show up at the house and didn't. I tried to call; no answer. weird? Next morning she shows up out of the blue and said she'd been in jail. Got in a traffic stop because of a taillight and they found her stuff which I didn't know about. I wanted NO part of that and had to make the decision to explain it. I'm clean, always have been and never want any part of it.

The guy I worked with, the cops showed up at the place he and I used to work at, and arrested him on a warrant. There is more to it, in that the business was partially involved, but that's all I'm saying. He spent the last year or so going back and forth with attorneys and the courts; just recently got probation (9 years I think)--mind you there were many counts including but not limited to simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, possession with intent to deliver, and of course different classifications for the types of substances he had on his person. Should be in jail.

I tend to lean right and this is something we can agree on!
The link just took me to the USAT home page. But if they are talking about legalizing and proliferating the psychoactive ingredient in the 'shrooms?!? Then please, no.

First off, I'm 54 years old and haven't smoked pot since I was 16, and hated it. But I have no issue with legalizing dope. Alcohol is far more addictive, dangerous and deadly. My $.02.

I believe that people are going to use their drug of choice regardless of the law. Based on that, I'd rather see the stuff sold legally by responsible regulated manufacturers and retailers than 'who knows what you're really getting' from someone on the street. Also, I'd rather see legitimate businesses make the profit instead of the cartels.

Like big tobacco/government collaboration and your local dope dealer, they want you hooked so you keep lining their pockets.

Prostitution is legal in Canada IIRC and they haven't escalated to allowing pedophiles to prey on children.

Not sure how legalizing certain drugs will collapse the nation or render the population stupid - people will do drugs whether or not it's legalized as evidenced by our lifetime war on drugs. The stupidity will come from systematically defunding the education system and putting crooks in charge of the education system. Result of this has been forcing qualified teachers to look for work in other industries, shit curriculums, and replacing educated, specialized instructors with unqualified instructors. People that lived through the 70's and 80's where drug use was commonplace complaining about legalization destabilizing the nation is entertaining.

As mentioned previously, alcohol is a far more dangerous controlled substance than THC and shrooms and cigarettes which are legal and highly addictive are sold without much restriction.

DABS and WAX are doing serious damage to the teen and pre-teen crowd. Legally obtained THC that is concentrated down to 90% pure. google NY Times and THC.
