Driving fast is fun, you get a buzz out of it, clearly we should remove all speed limits and let people do what they want. Freedom!
uziq keeps plugging the same arguments, everybody takes drugs no they don't drugs are good for you, lots of health benefits not for the average person outside a medical environment no.
i have literally never said drugs are good for you. i’ve said that alcohol is bad for you, in fact, and that a good number of recreational and scary-sounding ‘illegal’ drugs rank below it on a scale of harm - both individual and social.
the fact you can’t parse this simple fact after years of it being presented to you, and the fact you still try to twist my statements, just shows how deeply in denial you are. weird for a clear-sighted ‘man of science’.
i have always spoken about drug use as an informed decision, accepting tolerable risks in the same way one does when they drink, drive a car, or play with guns. a much more mature approach to drugs than getting hysterical about them and talking ominously about ‘illegality’ and ‘drug-crazed loonies’.
i have pointed out that many research groups around the world are looking into the medicinal or mental health benefits of psychoactive drugs which you declare ‘illegal … for morons’ etc. how many research groups are researching the health benefits of alcohol? i wonder why. possibly because it’s a harmful poison?
