Haven't they taken enough freedoms away? You would like clones of who knows what. Fuck that shit!

History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a
free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their
political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their
own purpose. ~ Thomas Jefferson

I'm off to the cannabis thread and may create a Scotch and cigar thread on my way there!

Wanted to "like" twice. I sure do love a good cigar. I think I'd be an aficionado if I were a rich man.

Just visiting.

Fuck you; there's no way you or anyone is going to get rid of my monkey mind. Drugs are at the top of the survival list - always have been - since early caveman days.

Food & water
If no food & water, then drugs
Shelter
If no shelter, then drugs
Companion
If no companion, then drugs

After that ... shit gets kind of murky ... probably some stuck up asshole got bored and made up religion.

Well, my work here is done for now... off to my cup-o-drug... Drinking Beverage

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Can you please provide a reason for asking a question like that? As you might have guessed from the replies, it's a rather unpopular idea. The brain is affected by all sorts of chemicals from the foods we eat. It isn't just about things that we can easily categorise as "drugs". Pay attention to your mood swings when you change (in either direction) the amount of sugar that you consume.

We're reproductive bags of chemicals.

They are a real pleasure, I know the good ones are pricey but every now and then it's a good treat.

I agree with everyone above... but I also would like to know why you would want to do this. What's the purpose?

I drink anywhere between a dram of whiskey and a tumbler-full about once a week. It's not much, but I enjoy it. I used to drink more, but never so much that I was drunk frequently (I can count on one hand the number of times I've been drunk). Why would you take this away from me? Even if I got drunk every day and it didn't affect anyone but me, again I ask why? Medical costs? You disagree with their use from a moral perspective? Some other reason? I don't get it. Undecided

Dude, we may not agree on gun issues, but so far, for pretty much everything else, you read my mind. I was thinking the exact same thing there. Lmao

And "reproductive bags of chemicals" is definitely entering into my repertoire of terminology to describe humans.
