I would say LSD or magic mushrooms. People who have done them seem have enjoyed it, but I just don't have the courage to do these types of drugs that can permanently harm your brain.

As for those who say Marijuana, you would have more consequences from alcohol or cigarettes than you would from pot.

A good friend of mine happens to be a drug recognition expert instructor and he laughed his ass off when I read that to him. There is a reason posession of cocaine is a felony, no matter how little. Someone seems to think it's dangerous.

Did I say that cocaine was not dangerous? I guess not, and it was certainly not my intention.

But as for your trust into the "someone" who was so gracious to save mankind from cocaine: next time you meet him, ask him why he did not ban alcohol or nicotine as well, as this stuff is at least as dangerous.

You may also tell him that his attempts seem to be pretty much in vain. Cocaine consumption tripled over the past few years here. So does the number of victims. Still, I'm waiting for the problem to be adressed with the same determination as is "terrorism". What could be the reason it isn't?

Are you serious? Or did I miss the  Wink in your statement? In first case, would you start consuming marijuana, cocaine or heroin if it was legalized in your country, because if it is legalized, it cannot be dangerous? Come on! Of course, alcohol is a drug. And actually, it is the starter drug (along with nicotine) for 100% of all drug addicts.

I have tried everything except heroin, LSD and shrooms. From trying meth, I have a good idea why heroin is so addictive and I don't like halucinating, so LSD and srooms are out. So, short answer is: I would try no drugs. I liked ecstasy. But, I would not seek out anything. I have better things to do and better things to spend my money on.

LSD or mushrooms do no more "harm" to your brain than the chemicals that are put into cigarettes or the way the mind reacts to alcohol in the blood rushing through it.

Some of the "straightest" people you know might be users of LSD, mescaline, mushrooms, etc. The psychotropic drugs to a certain degree are considered to be revelatory by many users. That and also the fact that they are basically almost untraceable in their purest form makes them a great recreational or even therapeutic substance to integrate into their lifestyle. Many users of psychedelic drugs utilize their ability to lower inhibitions to seeing themselves from the outside--i.e., these drugs allow you to "objectify" yourself in ways that normal, everyday living reality does not. Many of these psychedelic substances allow different areas of your brain to work that normally are not associated with each--for example, the experience of "synesthaesia" (mainly an association between the hearing and sight senses that get inverted)...

In any event, many people who have taken LSD or other psychedelics report that their lives were forever changed--for the better, for the more positive--by their experience using these substances....

Read up on what you say folks, don't just assume what you hear in the media or from your local corrupt politician is the truth of any matter--especially when it comes to things like psychedelics....

As the saying goes, "if you need it, use it...if you don't, pass it on."

Cheers.

I love to get high! There is nothing better than being at 35,000 feet. The rush, the calming feeling, and the excitement. That is the only high I need!

I got a shot of morophine once when I was in the hospital, and I swear I was instantly addicted to it. It was only that one time, and that is all it took. I kept begging the doctor for more. I can totally understand how one can be addicted with just one try, and that is 99.9% of the reason I choose not to do drugs.

I assume alcohol isn't included in that figure, although it should be. Maybe, being such a widespread and popular drug, it deserves a category of its own. I'd be interested to see a breakdown of those figures, ie heroin, cocaine, crystal meth, etc, and how each individual drug compares with alcohol. No doubt a lot are multi-drug users, so this may be difficult to research.

Viagra. But if there were no consequences, what's the point? Maybe I should go with something more illicit.

I'm amused by the almost hysterical reaction above to drug use. As a couple of posters have pointed out, how many of these people drink or smoke?

As am I, especially given the preconditions of the thread. Lacking curiosity are we?

The (often severe) consequences that come with drug use are all that keep me away from the hard stuff (I've done alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, shrooms and assorted pills). Take those away, I'll try anything you can shake a stick at. Obviously, that's not going to happen, so I doubt my "drug resume" will expand much as I grow older.

Quoting ZakHH (Reply 11):
The whole public drug discussion is hypocritical to me. Not even the terms are defined logically. While rather harmless substances like THC are labeled as drugs, stronger stuff like alcohol is regarded like regular food, and heavily addictive stuff like nicotine (which is far more addictive than cocaine) is widely accepted to be included in most tobacco products.

In a nutshell: if you occasionally smoke tobacco joints, then the tobacco is probably more dangerous for your health than the marijuana.

Yet still, cigarette smoking is stll more or less acceptable on a public level, while marijuana smokers are regarded as drug addicts.

I for myself try to maintain a well-balanced state of mind without the use of narcotics. That way, I can really enjoy them when I would occasionally consume them (usually good red wine, a single malt, a good cigar or some good weed for special occasions). But the golden rule for me is: as long as my life is not in balance, I will not consume any of them - not even beer.

Exactly right! Well phrased, Zak, you and I share the same attitude about these things. They're only worth doing if you are happy and balanced, because in my experience things like alcohol and weed just make you feel more of what you already feel, so being depressed and trying to mask that with drugs will only make things worse. That's why my friends that tend towards depression become rude and aggressive and sad when they drink, while my happy, satisfied friends just laugh alot and act silly and smile. Same for weed. As for the harder stuff, I wouldn't know and probably never will, because I'm afraid of addiction.

Quoting Sunshine79 (Reply 12):
Er, well, considering drugs are illegal and cigarettes and alcohol are not, I don't quite agree with you there. And I'm not addicted to them, as I say the odd one or two every no and then.

Alcohol is illegal in places like Saudi Arabia, and weed is legal in places like Amsterdam, so how does that fit in with your idea? If you do some basic research, you'll see that alcohol is far worse for your brain than weed, yet alcohol is legal...

Quoting KROC (Reply 15):
I'm pretty sure thats one of the most ignorant things I have ever read. I can't speak for everyone, but I haven't known one "casual" cocaine user. It always got a hold of them. Always.

I've met plenty of casual cocaine users myself... ever been to a frat or sorority house on the average college campus?

Quoting Jafa39 (Reply 31):
I have seen several people end up loopy through LSD and even more through smoking too much weed

I'll say that is BS... Acid can cause some longterm changes in your neural pathways, but if taken once or twice it is virtually harmless. As for weed, there is NO evidence whatsoever that THC causes any longterm damage to the brain (in fact, it has many benefits...), even when one smokes many times a day. It does hinder short term memory retention, so if someone were to be high 24/7, they would seem to be forgetful and spacey, but if they stop smoking they will be completely normal.

That is so true, aderol and those sorts of ADHD drugs are like heroin around my college campus. The kids with prescriptions sell them for big $ to the kids who haven't had mommy and daddy's doctor friend write them a prescription yet. Kids crush them and snort them for a faster hit, and I've known more than a few kids who moved on to cocaine from aderol because it has a similar effect and is taken in the same way if you're already snorting aderol.
