LSD should not be legalized.
My opponent affirms; I negate.
I look forward to a fun debate!
First thing I will say. LSD itself is not the problem. It's fine. It's the people who use it that make it dangerous.
With just about every single chemical or substance that exist, there are people who use it for whatever reason they have. Also, as with everything that can be ingested be the human body, there are limits. Too much will cause serious problems or death. The problem with legalizing LSD is that people who are not educated about the drug they are taking (whether medically or for fun), they run the risk of overdosing. LSD also does not have any negative effects on people physically. This fact makes it seem like you can't die from taking a huge amount of it, if you don't already have prior knowledge about the drug.
LSD is found in ergot, a fungus that grows on rye and other types of grain. This makes LSD plentiful and easier to get than other drugs people use, such as marijuana and morphine. It's a hallucinogen, meaning that people can hallucinate while on LSD. People don't feel it's effects until about 30-90 minutes or so after ingesting the drug, so it will make them think that they didn't get enough, as a result taking even more LSD and possibly overdosing in the end.
LSD affects both the body and the mind, the effects usually lasting about 12 hours. Physical effects can be, but aren't limited to change in body temperature, loss of appetite, and sleeplessness. Mental effects can be hallucinations, delusions, distortions in someone's sense of time and identity, panic attacks, and severe depression or psychosis.
These effects will make it more difficult to do what is normally done in someone's life, and endanger themselves and possibly other people. If LSD is legalized, it will be much easier to get to it. At this time, most people won't know exactly what LSD is. LSD will make daily life more dangerous to the user and the people around the user, since it impairs the senses and causes hallucinations, mixing up the person's sense of reality.
Can you explain why?
You had a good argument, though.
I hope you stick around on this site. I won't.
Hope you stay, I've seen some of your debates. You're really good. ^.^
