Humans indulge in activities that alter both the content and the experience of their own consciousness. Drugs are a means for achieving a number of particular, often recreational, changes in conscious experience. However, drugs are also a large contributor to, and facilitator of, human suffering and health problems. The best health advice anyone can give to most people most of the time regarding recreational drug use is this: “Do not use drugs”. Many people however, including me, do not find this advice particularly attractive, or even sensible. Assuming that a person wants to enjoy the mind-altering effects of psychoactive substances, two questions follows: which drugs are dangerous to use? And, more importantly - how can one know which drugs are more dangerous than others? The answer to both questions, of course, can be found through the illuminating lens of the scientific method.

Can you say, “entrapment”?
More fun from the self-loathing society: This American Life had a show about how young female undercover cops infiltrated a high school and flirted with boys to entrap them into selling pot, so they could charge them with felonies and destroy their lives at an early age.Last year in three high schools in Florida, several undercover police officers posed as students. The undercover cops went to classes, became Facebook friends and flirted with the other students. One 18-year-old honor student named Justin fell in love with an attractive 25-year-old undercover cop after spending weeks sharing stories about their lives, texting and flirting with each other.Sick: Young, Undercover Cops Flirted With Students to Trick Them Into Selling Pot (Via Aurich Lawson)
One day she asked Justin if he smoked pot. Even though he didn’t smoke marijuana, the love-struck teen promised to help find some for her. Every couple of days she would text him asking if he had the marijuana. Finally, Justin was able to get it to her. She tried to give him $25 for the marijuana and he said he didn’t want the money — he got it for her as a present.
A short while later, the police did a big sweep and arrest 31 students — including Justin. Almost all were charged with selling a small amount of marijuana to the undercover cops. Now Justin has a felony hanging over his head.
Lol dumbass shouldn’t have given her pot. end of story. when things are too good to be true, they usually ARE. everyone has their opinion, this is mine:)
Your opinion is stupid as fuck.
Agreed. Your opinion is stupid as fuck. Theromo, I hope something amazing happens to you and you turn it down because it’s “too good to be true.”
I take that back. I just hope something bad happens to you. Go fuck yourself.
So the whole reason we need more prisons built is to house non-violent drug offenders?
LTMC: And 80-90% of those so-called drug offenders are Black, despite the fact that all racial groups commit crime at remarkably similar rates, and some studies suggest that Blacks actually use drugs less frequently than whites.
You know why white people use more? Because they know they’ll probably get away with it. No joke, I’ve heard plenty of white people I know who smoke, and then think they can get away with it because they’re white. Usually they do too.
Racist system is racist.
