What's Your Views On Drugs?
 
# 31 : Sunday 4-8-2013 @ 18:17
 
 
I've never met a person who has an addiction to any kind of drug, regardless of it's type, that was in a stable and successful career.
That's just My experience though? I don't spend much time around drug users.
Maybe if anybody on this board uses drugs regularly, knows lot's about drugs and has a successful career, they could put the facts forward.

You'd be surprised. I'd know a lot of people in very high positions of their job and well paid for it who are fond of Ketamine and pills.

Some people can function and go to work, do their thing, and know their limits with what they take. It's just the unfortunate few who let it totally consume their lives who are visible, take my word for it there are plenty of people out there who'll be off their face in a club but still be coherent, still know their limits, and still get up for a 12 hour shift the next day in work and walk away from it with a great wage.

In a word.
No.
I won't take your word for it.

There are lots of high functioning drug users. I don't know about smack, but I do know people who used cocaine, pills, ketamine and cannabis all through their twenties and several of these have very successful careers. One is actually a psychotherapist, another one works for an extremely prestigious fashion house, another one is now a partner in an accountancy firm. Actually when I think about it, it's the bad drinkers who fucked up their lives.

Should we educate in the schools, about drug use and do you think It'd make a difference? If people knew of the consequences, before walking blindfolded into the deep end and not knowing how to deal with certain issues or situations?

If you showed them the before-after pics like above I think they would think twice.

I know a few alcoholics who held down successful careers while progressing through alcoholism to rock bottom and giving up alcohol and continuing their successful careers.

Just listening to to a discussion about drug users in the city. Made me think; if you're a recreational drug user do you share part of the guilt for the problem. (wasn't thinking about weed as that could be legalised and removed from the equation any day)

legalise cannabis, magic mushrooms and reverse the legislation on head shops
Decriminalise the possession of all other drugs

Not everything in the headshops was safe. How would decriminalisation of possession tackle drug addiction?

Not really, most people who go out and take a few pills at the weekend enjoy themselves and don't bother anyone else. Same as the majority of drinkers are repsonsible.

You can test drugs and figure out whats safe New Zeeland recently adopted a policy for regulating head shops

No I don't share any guilt for doing something that has had zero effect on anyone else's life.

If you're using illegal drugs, it does have an effect on people's lives.
