That's like me having a fridge filled with my favourite foods and I choose to cook something I hate then I complain about it. How stupid is that? It seems like god likes to tick himself off.
The topic is not if God approves of drugs. It's... how does God feel about people selling illegal drugs. Come on people.

How does God FEEL about it? IMHO, I think He doesn't approve. Illegal drugs (and even some that we consider to be legal) are harmful to those who take them, as well as to people around them. I would think the drug dealers are bloodguilty for providing such substances. The person taking them is responsible for their actions, but the person supplying the substance is responsible too.

If you want to be honest, the main reason people have many problems from drug use is not because they do drugs, but how much they do. Heroin in it's pure form is relatively safe, however, it's never sold 100% pure on the streets. Not only that, but if you're a serious addict, you won't limit yourself. You're not going to take the time to measure out a safe dose and administer it safely.* That's the real problem.

As for me, I smoke weed from time to time (a maximum of two times a week) and do psychedelics (mushrooms, acid, mescaline, DMT, and many other lesser known psychedelics) maybe once or twice a month. I measure out all my doses. Of course, my situation is different though because I'm talking about drugs that have little to no addiction potential. Not only that, but you can't really use psychedelics that often anyway. If you knew the pharmacology of them, you'd know why.


*Note that there are clinics in San Francisco that will now administer safe doses of cocaine and heroin to anybody who will bring it in.

I'd like to add that I work a pretty good job, graduated school early (a few years ago), and am starting college January.

And the only health problem I have is these annoying allergies.

I have a problem with posing any question to an imaginary friend. Of course I know his answer, because I made him up in my mind.

i'm taking a wild guess:

from unidentifyable chemical substances in nutrition you buy and air pollution as a cost-free by-product??

I've had allergies for as long as I can remember. I was just pointing out that I don't have any health problems as a result of the substances I experiment with. I only use pure stuff and I measure out doses. That's the smart way to do it.
