Drugs are a life choice. Good or bad, it is something people do. When used as a part of a person's entertainment budget, they are generally as harmless as any other recreational activity. When a person over does a drug whether it be marijuana cocaine or ecstasy, it becomes negative. The same could be said for any indulgent recreational activity (Obsessed with : gaming (WoW/Evercrack), sports (gambling), a girlfriend/boyfriend) Anything good is meant to be enjoyed in moderation and not taken to hardcore extremes. People who do drugs deal with the negative consequences of their own vices. While you can't deny that drugs may change somebody's personality, nobody is perfect to begin with, so it really doesnt matter. It may be hard for a non-drug user to understand how a person can accept something as sacred as their own personality being altered, and that is probably why the concept is bothersome to them. A few things to note:
-A casual drug habit does not kill you.
-Smoking weed will probably affect your memory. Big deal. And to those who are sheltered from the real world, everybody smokes weed.
-Cocaine will make you do some stupid shit. Theres a reason why it rhymes with insane.
-Overuse of psychedelics will make it hard to think in the future, this is true.
-If the substance is known as addictive such as meth, heroin, coke and crack, you will probably get addicted to it if you try it and have ready access to it.
I have sat around smoking weed for months at a time relaxing to the extreme and not worrying about anything. I have seen all existence as a singular point in time and space while on mushrooms. I have acted as outrageously as Rick James while on cocaine. I have had sex on Ecstasy more times than I can count. Yeah, I have trouble remembering shit sometimes. Once in a while I feel like theres something I should understand that I don't. Sometimes I regret blowing thousands of dollars that I have nothing to show for. But the fact of the matter is that everybody has these same problems, and I know plenty of people who have never done drugs who have far less to show for their time in this world than I do, who have never experienced the things I have and never will.
