My experiences have been good generally.
I like to have a few drinks on the weekend. I mean there have been many times when i've been too sloshed and my behaviour becomes inappropriate (getting too handsy with the fairer sex), kissing girls I shouldn't when I have a girlfriend etc. Alcohol seems to me very dangerous for those sorts of things, because you literally do not remember a thing. I question myself to whether I would do those things if it was a concious decision. Or was it a concious decision? I can never know. That's the scary part. There's a second version of you on alcohol who you can never ask these things and seems to be very crazy and gets you into a lot of trouble. I get very very drunk and hardly end up puking or falling over like most people so I guess my 2nd self knows when I've had enough. I've cut down a lot because of the health implications.
I hate hangovers, you can literally tell how much the alcohol has impacted on your body. People very rarely stop to think how much they're damaging their body, I mean alcohol is a poison isn't it. One of the most dangerous drugs there is.
you can't really fault it. It's an experience enhancer, basically just makes everything more magical and better. Encourages different ways of thinking. I've read books on it for my degree course. Basically you learn to love cannabis, it's a grower. Studies have shown most cannabis users have learned their own way to maximise pleasure when using it, it's very rarely an instaneous thing. I suppose not many people like their first alcoholic drink. But basically the pleasure derived from it is learned. Through deciding what you most like to use it for. Relaxing with friends, listening to music, watching movies, going for a walk. It makes all these things positively better.
You can now buy vaporisers which means you don't even have to inhale harmful smoke, which is the most dangerous things about taking cannabis. This makes taking cannabis nowadays virtually risk free. And the therapeutic/medicinal properties makes comparing it to alcohol an exercise in stupidity.
When I was younger I guess I had "bad" experiences on cannabis, but those are down to not being used to it or understanding its effects properly. Basically if you're a slightly anxious teenager and you're not used to it, you might end up being paranoid. An experienced user knows that any thought about being caught with it or something bad happening like your parents coming home early is probably paranoia. A good tip is to also realise that everyone is feeling the same as you (when you're smoking it in a group) some people tend to trip out and think its only them who are feeling this high and that it's unusual/ somethings gone wrong. Again, it's a bit of silly paranoia. One you get past that you start enjoying it.
Once I ended up freaking out a little thinking chavs were coming after me, ended up jumping on a train to god knows where. You can also get a little self-concious on it. Looking back I just laugh.
I've had the best nights of my life on MDMA. I can say that without a question. Positively mindblowing. It's a fairly lucid experience, and you are relatively in control of your actions. It's you but on a very good day. I would not waste your first time taking this at any other place other than some underground house music club or a rave. There has to be a lot of people and a lot of loud music. And you end up making a lot of friends. Or if they're sober, pissing a lot of people off with your overly happy mood and completely uninhibited self. Conversations seem to just flow. Everyones in a good mood, very empathetic. Complete strangers seem to disregard years of social programming and finally discover they are one with everyone, meaning that it feels like you've been friends with everyone for years.
Bad experiences, these usually come after the good experiences. Nothing too bad. I have very rarely sometimes hallucinated slightly. This sounds like it would be scary, but if anything it is incredibly fascinating. You are in too much of a good mood to be fazed or frightened. I've only heard this happen to a few people, it is rare and nothing really to be worried about.
The worst part is obviously the come down, it's like a hangover but... different. I'm having difficulty describing it, it was a while back. But some 'come-down' days have been great. Just staying up all night, all morning and all day in some park or a friends house just having a very laid back recovery.
I've experimented with this. I guess it's worth a try if you're curious, but ultimately I find it pointless. Not to mention anti-social. It can be quite odd/ interesting on a night out. It is normally snorted which immediately evokes a seedy image. Your proportions of time and space are altered, as well as the relationship with your own body. Time can slow down, a car can feel like a whole universe. Standing up from sitting down can feel like you've entered a different dimension. Ok that might be exaggeration. It's not really hallucinatory, you can get lost in your thoughts. Some people like it. For me, i'm probably never going to try it again.
Was offered this at a club when I was 16. Gave me a bit of a buzz. Still felt a little tingly/buzzed the next day. Nothing to shout home about, didn't really do that much tbh though I only took a little. Second time, it barely did anything to me. Could have got more of a buzz from sugar and caffeine. I'd probably give this another go if I was offered.
The little brother of shrooms. Available legally in Amsterdam. I tried the strongest ones. The hallucinations were mild. My ipod seemed to be shifting in proportions. Suddenly Pocket God became the best game ever (never really wanted to play it before that). Everything started to 'breathe' very mildly, nice pleasant vibrations. Wouldn't bother with these again because they didn't really do that much.
Would like to try this, in particular LSD. Possibly after trying these I would try DMT. But I wouldn't take any 'hard' drugs, except cocaine.
On the politics side, I'm firmly on the full legalisation front.
Go troll somewhere else.

Why should the NHS waste their money on saving people like u.
Your signing a death warrant when u take drugs, is that why people take them?
