You know, I really wouldn't worry about some dipshit who can't handle the high.
Marijuana and Opium are two of the finest substances that can be enjoyed. Even Heroin, of which I have had the personal pleasure of trying, is an absolutely enjoyable substance. I guess I'm just not one of those "addictive personalities". I do understand the predicament Rush Limbaugh is in, Oxycontin----WWWOOOOOOOWWWW------Tried driving under the influence of Oxycontin, absolutely wild. Not recommended. Oxy 80's are where it's at, just treat it like alcohol.
Even cocaine. The problem people seem to have overall is "what it does to a few people". Not my fucking problem if you're stupid. This stuff can get expensive very fast. Now how the fuck am I responsible because some dipshit thinks coke is more important than holding down a job?
People just don't like to see other people having a good time they aren't having themselves. Life is pretty serious for some. I prefer to ignore the idiots and have a good time.
Now I am saying this with the authority of some of my friends who ARE heroin addicts. My brother is also a meth addict, and alcoholic, a coke head, and convert to Islam. It's his choice. The programs to quit are all around when he chooses to clean up. But in the meantime, I couldn't give a sweet shit how important these things are to him. I guess I'm a fucking hardass that way.
Fear of these substances is doing no one any good. Toughen up already.
You Know, Prov, that I'm never going to disagree with individual choice. I'm behind you 100% on this (even though the hardest "drug" I have ever been influenced by is the psychadelic music of Pink Floyd
). I like what you said earlier:
I've heard somewhere that to keep doing things the same way and expecting different results each time is akin to insanity.
Pretty much sums up the entire situation.
The only exception to the rule is that if somebody is high on something (even alcohol!) & they end up killing another person (either accidentally or intentionally) the sentance should AUTOMATICALLY be doubled.
But, I did not write the legal code, unfortunately.
