fusillade762: mikek9: Sorry, had to stop at the, 'moms using crack while pregnant doesnt hurt the baby, being poor does' line. I mean, I was already getting pissed at the it's not the drugs fault, its cause they're poor stance, but that was the kicker for me and I couldnt read any further.Um... the "Crack Baby" myth has been busted for a long time.No specific disorders or conditions have been found to result for people whose mothers used cocaine while pregnant. Studies focusing on children of six years and younger have not shown any direct, long-term effects of PCE on language, growth, or development as measured by test scores. PCE also appears to have little effect on infant growth. However, PCE is associated with premature birth, birth defects, attention deficit disorder, and other conditions. The effects of cocaine on a fetus are thought to be similar to those of tobacco and less severe than those of alcohol.'Crack baby' scare overblown, teen research says
Kumana Wanalaia: Walter Paisley: Kumana Wanalaia:Also, why do you think psychedelics should only be available on a limited basis?Specifically, lsd should be available but on a limited basis. There is such a thing as too much lsd.I can't say that shrooms or peyote or toad need to be limited, although I suspect so. If someone wants to trip for a few days that's one thing. If you're tripping all day every day for years, it's going to take it's toll. For the good of the public health, that should be restricted.Now if you'll excuse me, I have to polish my jack-boots.
Kumana Wanalaia: teenage mutant ninja rapist: For the life of me I could never figure out what separates the recreational drug user from an addict.If you want to stop and you can't, you're addicted.
CygnusDarius: Well, we know meth (and its ugly cousin bath salts) are pretty farked up.
jenlen: It is really sad to see the almost violent reaction many people in our society have if they see a pregnant woman lighting a cigarette, but they ignore a woman guzzling alcohol while pregnant.

Kumana Wanalaia: Educate. License. Tax. Rehabilitate.Educate. License. Tax. Rehabilitate.Educate. License. Tax. Rehabilitate.Educate. License. Tax. Rehabilitate.Educate. License. Tax. Rehabilitate.That being said, bath salts, meth and crack are irredeemable and should never be legal. Heroin and coke are too extreme for recreational use, but I heard that in France the old folks homes give their residents pills of heroin so they're happy all day, and I think that's acceptable. Psychedelics should be available but on a limited basis.The only reason pot is illegal is that hemp competed with Hearst's wood sulfide paper mill profits. I think it will be legalized, if not soon, probably in my lifetime.
