I beg every teenager that comes to this website, to say "no" to drugs. You have more influence on your friends and peers than you could imagine. It all starts with the thought that either it's cool to do drugs or you can just do it once without it affecting you. Drugs have a terribly strong hold on those who fall to them. There are so many teens who o.d. every year. They didn't think that doing a small ammount of drugs would ruin their lives, but you can see what happens to them all. That fate could be our friends'. We could save their lives if we would just take a stand! Be a different teen! Make a difference in your friends lives!

Thank you!!! Our economy would be doing SO well if weed were legal. Plus, it would be more expensive, which would make it harder for teens to smoke (which would suck) but it would put a lot of people's whining to rest.

Haha drugs are only bad if you're doing the wrong ones, with the wrong people, at the wrong time, for the wrong reasons. There are plenty of times it's perfectly fine, even better than, say legal drugs like Oxycontin, or even alcohol.

 

When you say don't do drugs, you should specify which ones, and why, and back it with scientific knowledge. Because there are reasons to not take drugs, and reasons to take them.... It's all very personal.

I have this weird ambivalence towards this subject. In a way, I don't even care anymore.

Isn't that sad?

I suppose it has to do with the people I hang out with, the authors I read, the things I've witnessed, the heart I've put into someone's recovery and subsequent relapse. 

I feel terrible about my lack of interest, which is probably why I took the time to comment, but...

Yes! That is exactly what I thought. This needs evidence to back up all the claims. Most of us agree with you; you just need inform us with more than your ideas.

I totally agree -- I plan to be clean for life -- but a lot of the drugs people take aren't illegal ones. Ever heard of Ritalin? Adderall? Those can both get you high, but they're frequently prescribed to little kids. Every time you take antibiotics or painkillers you're taking a drug. Hate to break it to you, but even Tylenol is a drug -- it's just a very safe one.

i agree to the fullest on this us as teenagers get so addicted to the littlest things, and then we end up getting addicted, which for us is smoking. so once we see our friends doing it we then end up trying it and getting addicted, it like a sick sick drug that you cant run away from.

Doing drugs isn't cool. Remember just because a majority of people do something doesn't always make it write. Don't forget that a majority of the American people once supported slavery. Remember you are who you chose to be.

Screw you guys, I'm going home.

I just want to say this, if you do drugs once, it is probably not going to mess you up. What people are telling kids is that some horrible thing is going to happen when you do drugs. So when kids try it and nothing bad happens, they think that drugs can't hurt them. I think we should just be truthful about the whole matter. Rather than tainting kids thoughts with lies.

You have no idea how different the world would be if no one ever smoked pot, opium, drank cocaine or dropped acid and blew thier mind with shrooms do you? At least no more then our free media and libreal education declares.

 

And I hate to break it too you, but we are a druggie society. "Pharmaceutical companies will soon rule the world if we keep letting them believe we are a happy, functional society so long as all the women are on Prozac, all children on Ritalin, and all men on Viagra."  ~Terri Guillemets

 

Which would you like? A world in which people are doped up and made to work on pills that they think they need or one in which those that can handle substnace can choose for themselves? I'm not going to push a view -though its not hard to see where my beliefs lie- other then ignorance is remarkably unattrative. Dont regretitate whats been told to you, educate yourself and form your own opinion.

i think you should just stay away from drugs in general. there is a reason why theyre pretty hard to come by. besides, it only numbs pain and makes you lonely.
