This is something I have to state, its somewhat opinion, but the some of the things I have to state are factual. I am watching a show on entertainment tv about drugs and fame. I came to a conclusion or opinion and did a quick research on this online. I just felt it was needed to be said to help those or make those think about this. We talk about how America and other countries need to fix itself in the problems it has internally. But of course you have $$$ that are always not there to fund programs. Now I dont want to target politicians, this is not about them. Each year Americans alone spend 65 Billion dollars to get high. Think about that, 65 billion, money used there for a 5 min to a few hrs of being high, could be spent on other things in our society. Then you have the US public as well as some other countries that want to strip the war on drugs program, take its funding, downsize its personnel because its not producing the results. The you have the public that wants to authorize certain controlled narcotics. Are we really fighting the problem or are we just making it worse? Overall, and this is really targeted at the youth of today, drugs are not cool, they do nothing for you. I know you have heard this a 1000 times before, but really wat does it do for you. You work a part time job so to say and it takes you what 7-8 hrs of busting your hump to buy a pill(s), a dimebag, to get you in the state of mind of being high for 5 min or longer? It does nothing for you. Trust me on this, I was one of those types back in the late 80's. When we had more access to that kind of stuff. And now, yeah you can get it, but alot of that stuff is spiked, dangerous chems in it and yeah you might see one of your friends have a buzz going on, but remember one thing, your physiology is different from everyone else. So you reaction will be different, epsecially if you are not careful. Dont do it, dont waste your time or money on the stuff. I have lost friends, family, money, piece of mind, intelligence, common sense, becuase I was stupid. All because I wanted to be liked to have new friends to hang out in places I couldnt get into, etc. What made me stop, I will tell you, I was tripping on Acid with a friend in his room, he decided to go out to the balcony and thought he could fly, I watched him "fly" 4 stories down head first into the sidewalk and at that time, I was tripping so bad I thought it was cool what he did, until I came down and realized, my friend could only be determined by dental records, no matter what we said on who he was cause we were all screwed up. Its not worth it, not worth the $$$ to spend and if you get hooked, all it does it destroy you, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Just please, those who may still do it, even a few times is still not good enough, quit it. Think about the money you spend, you are making some pusher/dealer rich and have all the things he/she wants while you have nothing and he/she doesnt even work or pay taxes. And where does that dealer/pusher get his/her product from? Does it help fund terrorist? Does it help fund other ways to get pass or pay off port officials, ccounternarcotic agents, border patrols to let them pass with it? The only thing they care about is you being the repeat consumer, cause you are putting $$$ in their pocket. And if we are not careful, this problem with narcotics will continue to degrade our society, the way we think, feel, act and if we continue, this could be a terrorist equation for bio/chem warfare in our streets, thru the market and sale of drugs. If we spend 65 billion/yr thats about 7-8 million users in America alone. And if they use it as a method of comitting a terrorist attack on the US, thats the sure way to do it, cause that will cause at least statistically 3-5 million USER deaths, along with an additional 4-6 NON User deaths cause they were around the persons that use. Food for thought. Think about it and if you know friends that use, try to help them, you are only being a friend and you care. These #'s are only estimates, got them from a DEA research project and the Homeland Security along with additional sources about terrorist using narcotics as a sleeper agent into committing acts of terrorism on US soil. But this act of, is being tested in other countries as well.
