I honestly don't know anyone at my uni who does drugs, or at least they don't make it obvious.
But certainly none of my friends do anyway.
I guess it varies a lot on what course you do though as I know on my brothers Art degree loads of people took drugs for example.

What's actually wrong with drugs? OOOOo yeah that's right... society says they are wrong.

But, oh hang on, didn't they also say that blacks and gays were wrong? Yer... so don't listen.

A 'naughty-drug' is the same as an 'allowed-drug', they're chemical compounds. If you don't like it, then that's cool. But don't slate it, because 110% of people slating it, haven't tried it.

Trying it doesn't make you a drug-dealer skank tramp binge junkie

Not all students, infact most of the people I know don't do drugs but they are easily available and I know people on both ends of the scale i.e. some do loads of class A's, some have the odd spliff and the majority just stick to drinking.

Logically, if they were wrong on two things they must be wrong on everything. I take your point.

Water is a chemical compound as is pure alcohol. It's okay to drink 1l of water so it must be okay to drink 1l of pure alcohol because they're both chemical compounds.

Likewise, 110% of people who slate genocide haven't tried it.

Do you know, I really like your way of thinking. You've convinced me to go out and buy some weed tonight.

Taking drugs isn't the same as racism! :p:

I don't take drugs because they're harmful to the body (or can be)...I don't understand why people would want to take something that can damage them. My objection to drugs is on the grounds of health, rather than what society tells me (if anything society is becoming more and more acclimatised to illegal drug usage). Likewise, I don't take painkillers unless I really, really need them, I don't smoke and I try to eat healthily. Other people can do whatever they want as far as I'm concerned - I'm not going to try to change their minds, I just don't understand it.

Ok lemme explain

Government was wrong on two things, yes. It was not my point to suggest that because they are wrong on two things that they are wrong on everything, but merely to point out that their reasoning is not infallible.

As for chemical compounds, I was suggesting that a 'drug' is not automatically fatal, because it is a drug.

And as for 110% I was exaggerating. Jeez lighten up Mr an*l

Big love x

No it isn't the same as racism. But blindly following an idea because someone says you should seems a pretty universal concept.

And yea... drugs can be harmful. SO can drinking 800 pints of water, or eating too much bad food... what's your point?

Like I said... moderation

It's not the Government's reasoning it's the scientists'.

Of course it doesn't kill you automatically. It's a long and slow effect.

Obviously you were exaggerating as 110% is a statistical impossibility.

Also I respect your view about not wanting to try But you say you can't understand.

Well, people risk their lives diving underwater, or rock climing, or whatever really - but all in aid of getting an experience that couldn't have had otherwise. I guess that for some people that is their reason for trying drugs.

Like I said... moderation
My point was that I avoid drugs because they can potentially cause harm to the body, I thought that was fairly obvious? Likewise, I would avoid drinking 800 pints of water. I don't really understand the comparison you're making; I said that I avoid eating unhealthy food for the same reason that I avoid drugs - to stay healthy.

:p:

Please tell me how drug use is slow and painful??
Once again allow me to explain kiddo

Drugs cause no damage if you're careful. They are out of you're system pretty quick. Yeah, if you over do it you may get psychological damage, but them many other things may cause that too. How can you die from drugs?? Overdose, yea if you're stupid, but how many times must I say...

IN MODERATION!

Being fat and eating too many cakes WILL cause death.

SO perhaps we should ban cakes?

For any open-minded people... if you're interest in anything that has been discussed in this programme

call frank! for a totally bias and opinionated view

alternatively see http://www.erowid.org for a balanced, truthful view.

Always. For instance, since 1908 it's been illegal for under 16s to smoke because it's damaging their lungs.

Er, no. That is a political decision taken by politicians using scientific evidence. Science simply provides the data - it is up to the politicians to use it (or ignore it as they frequently do with studies on drugs) for legislative purposes.
