    Recently criminalised, because some tourists (i.e., 2 people) jumped of bridges/killed themselves supposedlyafter a bad trip. Which is a great reason to criminalise something! I'm sure alcohol as NEVER killed THAT MANY people!!!

    Anyway, for me it's B, but these classes are so arbitrary. :rolleyes:
    Incorect. Magic Mushrooms hasnt even touched a percent on alcohol.

    According to the NHTSA web site (nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/pdf/nrd-30/NCSA/RNotes/2006/810686.pdf), there were 43,443 alcohol related traffic fatalities in 2005 in the USA. As a comparison, AIDS claimed 18,000 lives in 2003.

    •5% of all deaths from diseases of the circulatory system are attributed to alcohol.
    •15% of all deaths from diseases of the respiratory system are attributed to alcohol.
    •30% of all deaths from accidents caused by fire and flames are attributed to alcohol.
    •30% of all accidental drownings are attributed to alcohol.
    •30% of all suicides are attributed to alcohol.
    •40% of all deaths due to accidental falls are attributed to alcohol.
    •45% of all deaths in automobile accidents are attributed to alcohol.
    •60% of all homicides are attributed to alcohol.

    No, haha! We maybe have like, 20 of them? We moved out of that house 5 years ago though (still own it) and I only found out recently that they were psychoactive. My mum used to tell me never to touch mushrooms or eat them from garden (we have loads of species) and rightly so, haha Don't want any trippin' kids running around now do we?

    Never done it, never will.

    Only drug I like is alcohol
    Then you've taken drugs...Alcohol IS a drug, even though society doesn't like to percieve it that way.

    The poll should really include a section for legal- non medicinal drugs, such as Salvia, Mephedrone, Alcohol etc

    I've never done drugs, people don't realise how much luck there is involved in having positive experiences with drugs
    i love it when people who have no experience think they automatically know more than those who do. in general, not just here.

    I don't really agree with this.

    Experience, environment and good research are really the three key factors. If someone is dim enough to ignore this then they're likely to have a bad experience. I've never known anyone, including myself, to have a negative experience on drugs when these requirements are fulfilled.

    The only drug I can kind of see your point with is Salvia, a legal hallucinogen. This is largely because of the severe temporary memory loss it causes, leading you to forget you smoked it in the first place.

    No problem. Well, obviously a lot of people think like that... Some people here went completely mad over these couple of suicides, and the government went as far as recriminalisinf mushrooms as a result. Really, if we went by how dangerous they are, weed and mushrooms should be legal with alcohol and tobacco illegal.
    But you know this :p:
