I am thinking about a debate. I want to... Frame this well. Its hard with the subject matter, but the premises is "go do some damn drugs". Any of you "no" votes, toss a resolution or two out.

Playing with our brain chemistry is as old as humanity. Many animals do it. It is healthy. It is fun. It opens experiences. It is not a DARE poster. Is is not a "faces of meth" picture. It is good and normal. Drugs are not a one time shot to "blow your mind".

Why would you mess up your brain with drugs?

@Wylted: You said you were 'oddly ancient' for being 32 somewhere, so that shouldn't be a surprise. :P
TBR says2015-04-07T08:58:35.2314160-05:00
Mathgeekjoe - Its not "messing up" your brain at all. Allowing for new and unique experiences is beneficial. Addiction or abuse is an entirely different conversation.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-07T09:11:48.9885828-05:00
Your brain is supposed to work a certain way, when you use drugs it messes up how the brain works. Drugs should not be used unless the brain has a problem that requires external help from the drug.

Mathgeekjoe - Do you ever view art? Listen to music?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-07T09:15:17.0815218-05:00
E to the power quantity of pi times i, is art.
TBR says2015-04-07T09:16:12.5459443-05:00
@Mathgeekjoe - I have no issue with that statement, but the question stands. Do you?
TBR says2015-04-07T09:20:15.8267862-05:00
My contention is, temporarily altering brain chemistry allows for unique ways of thinking. This is NOT a bad thing. Getting overly concerned about the label "drugs" is limiting our potential for the positive effects possible from using drugs.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-07T09:21:47.8313459-05:00
It limits the brain, it doesn't cause creativity, it causes confusion. Beside even if it did cause creativity, you don't need drugs for being creative.
TBR says2015-04-07T09:25:14.4412729-05:00
Mathgeekjoe - The effects of drugs are unique. That is why people use them. Let me ask this way. Forgetting images in your head about drug users, and frying eggs. If there were an activity that allowed you to have a unique experience for a short amount of time. Would it be a positive to explore this experience?
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-07T09:28:03.6819856-05:00
It would have negative impacts on my brain. And even if there were no negatives, it still would be taking away from who I am.
Bolas says2015-04-07T10:16:22.7462659-05:00
I've been around people who've done drugs, and let me say I already think it's bad. Never done them never will.
