The article did not mention glue sniffing or meth.
What is the effect on the IQ of illegal drugs? What's your source of info?

I gotta tell you this. According to my own study and observations I know of something that will 100% of the time lead to drug taking and every single drug taker in the world has done it.

Water drinking, yep fer sure there ladies and gents. All drug users have started out somewhere along the line with just one innocent sip. Maybe that General in Dr. Strngelove had it right all those years ago in the 60's. Only pure unadulterated Russian Vodka will do to keep s pure in essence!!!!!!!

One pill makes you larger, one pill makes you small. And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all.

Go ask Alice....

Obviously posted by someone who doesn't understand the scientific method. To test a variable, you need a control group. Since 100% of non-drug users also drink water your conclusion does not follow.

You know pretty much every military pilot uses amphetamines right?

People with higher IQs are more open and curious.

Study Links High Childhood IQ To Illegal Drug Use
But only dummies stick with it. I remember when I was 19 and I got involved with cocaine and 2 women with it. I got a $725 paycheck(this was in 2007) and between the 3 of us I ended up $300 in debt by Sunday morning. The utter helplessness taught a rough but invaluable lesson that I will never forget.

And neither do all the idiot conclusions that I have read over the years that link hard drug use to weed smoking. All of those hard drug users have used alcohol usually before the weed even but you never read that drinking booze leads to hard drugs, do you?
