I used to be pretty libertarian when it came to my perspective on legalising drugs

but Iíve seen first hand just how devastating opioid addictions can be, itís a tiny chemical but can totally take over a persons life and totally derail anything good they ever had going for them. idk what the solution is, criminalising it isnít, but doing whatever else we can to prevent people from not just getting on that train but even visiting the station


same with meth. the risk of it totally derailing your life is just way too high to not have huge public measures around them

and the pivot toward using fent as a cheaper than heroin alternative doesnít seem like something that can easily be stopped.

perhaps itíll just mean drugs really are as dangerous as they told us they would be in the 90s

none of that is weed though. the worst thing that can happen with weed is that you turn into a soundcloud rapper.

its obviously not as devastating as opioids or meth but i think marijuana has more negative impacts on peoples lives than a majority of its users are willing to admit. like i think some people can use it regularly and it won't have any sort of negative impact on them, but many people can't, and a lot of those people in the latter group think they're in the former group.

i'm in the 'i know it has negative effects, but smoke it anyway' group.

99% certain weed is the cause of my cyclic vomiting, but hey, i'm able to mostly control that through nortryptiline, so i keep on smokin. then there's the general lack of motivation, the garbage diet, the cardio damage from smoking

yeah anyone that thinks weed is 100% good for you is insane. it absolutely has side effects

but its also not nearly as harmful as some other drugs. i don't think thats controversial really

i lived in places that just straight up didn't have heroin, like they were too far from major cities for it to be a viable industry, so it went straight from vikes and oxy to fent lol. oxy was damaging enough, so god knows what it looks like now.

Achmed Jones
Oct 16, 2004



i think that's ops point: if people don't want its medicinal uses delegitimized they shouldn't refer to recreational usage as "medicine"

ain't nobody gonna throw shade at someone with chronic pain/nausea/etc calling it that. it's gotten a lot better in CA since recreational was legalized and they cracked down on (read: made it mildly obnoxious to obtain) medicinal licenses. but it used to be a complete joke, which maurice sucked for actual patients

the head shop i posted before, that's in between 3 dispensaries, still has signs up that strictly forbid mentioning any drug paraphernalia. the laws are still pretty fuzzy, and the conservatives in state legislature have been trying to get legalization repealed from the moment the people voted it in

i mean, i thought it was kind of a joke in NY too, but thinking about it again i think i would qualify anywhere fairly easily these days anyway? thats not like it was either, i feel like just qualifying for a card used to be pretty hard itself

having separate stuff does seem kind of moot now but they legally still differentiate between the two anyway. there are real differences that matter if you're a producer/business but probably not so much as a consumer

e: lol :goofy: i'm high

yeah thereís this thing Canadian punks smoke called Ďpoppersí (unrelated to the gay sex variety) where you put a plug of tobacco in the down stem with weed on top and then pull thru till it Ďpops,í it gives you a headrush and is definitely gross

in canadia, even in large enough cities actual heroin would cost like $400 a gram so pills like dilauded or morphine were preferable being easier and cheaper to get. Iíd rather the market be flooded with pharmaceuticals as at least thereís purity and safety in thatÖ so long as they donít have super dangerous anti-abuse mechanisms at least

your island has a good solution to this which is homebake. after the mr Asia syndicate got busted heroin stopped flowing to New Zealand easily but well, you gotta have heroin. so they made do with turning morphine pills with AA sourced from aspirin synth kits. itís almost pure and the overdose rate on your island is pretty low as a result, mostly happening as a result of mixing benzos

and you can also sneak it in anywhere if you put it on your keyring

do 1ml carts fit in it pretty well? looks like the carts you can get with it are all .5ml

also how well do their carts hold up to refilling? i tried doing the refill thing a while back and found most of the carts i tried to refill were done after 1 gram of distillate
