Very interesting stuff, and its good to be back. Many good points here, and i just wanted to add my 2 cents.

being in high school, as i am, certainly brings its temptations for drug experimentation. cannabis brought great self awarness. i hate to say it, but its true. like i can step above my life and view everything that goes on in a different (and perhaps more truthful) view point. only problem is cannabis makes my social phobia go thru the roof. hallucinogins did same with both, only more so.

why is it so bad to experience something in an altered state. these are chemicals effecting your brain, true, but every moment of every day the way we are is affected by chemicals in our brains. and who would know better than the people on this board. i dont mean to sound harsh, but is this not so?

obviously these drugs have there negatives, but they also have there pros. i have to say that i was responsible with my useage, but many people are not. whether or not greater education would help this i dont know. but like a prievious post said, its sad that we lock people away when they abuse drugs when we should get them help. get the problem at the roots. if biochemical abnormalities seem most likely, maybe psychiatric drugs would be the answer. if someone lost a loved one, maybe counselling would be best. but to give people who are suffering more suffering seems illogical. just my thoughts.
