At some point in your life, you’re going to be offered the chance to do drugs. Ignore all the propaganda that you learned in school or from your parents. Here’s why you should consider taking drugs.
Drugs Are Fun
I’m about to tell you something that may be a little controversial, that people might not want you to know about: drugs are a lot of fun. They are as long as you do them responsibly. I’m not telling you to go out and start shooting heroin. In fact I don’t advocate for heroin use at all (or meth for that matter). I’m just saying that going on a camping trip and dropping some acid is an amazing experience that you should not pass up.
They’ll Open Your Mind
Certain kinds of drugs like weed, acid, and mushrooms, etc. will allow you to use parts of your brain that you didn’t even know that you had. Drugs will open up your mind and teach you a lot about the person that you are supposed to be. Are you going through some sort of a life crisis? Do you need help making a major life decision, like deciding whether or not to get married, or change your career. Taking some ‘shrooms will give you an epiphany and allow you to see the path you’re supposed to take.
They Open You Up To New Experiences
Drugs open you up to new experiences that you ordinarily wouldn’t consider. You’ll be introduced to new music, you’ll meet new people, and you’ll go to some amazing parties. You’ll discover interests that you didn’t even know you had. Taking drugs is a great way to bust out of the confining snow globe that is everyday routine.
You’ll Meet Great People
Some of the most interesting and incredible people that you’ll ever meet in your lifetime, you’ll meet when you’re partying. You’ll meet gifted musicians, great dancers, and even people who know how to spin fire poi. Most importantly most of these people that you will meet will become some of the most genuine, best friends that you have. This is not to say that everyone you’ll meet in the party scene is going to be a good person. There are pieces of shit everywhere in life. You just have to make sure that you’re hanging with the right people. For example, don’t hang out with meth-heads.
All Drugs Are Not Bad Mmmkay
Despite what you were told in school, not all drugs are bad. Yes, some are and I’m not suggesting that you go off and become addicted to meth or pills. Smoking weed is not bad for you in the way that those who hate it say that it is. People are scared of drugs because there is a lot of anti-drug propaganda out there. Smoking weed is not going to lower your intelligence and dropping acid is not going to fry your brain and make you think that you’re a carrot or the Prime Minister of Canada. Drugs can be dangerous if you do them too much. The same goes for many things. Eating too many of the wrong kinds of foods is also really bad for you. Eating a sugar-filled diet is way worse that taking mushrooms on a Friday night. Ancient shamans and tribal elders would often take peyote during rituals to help them achieve mental and emotional clarity. Many famous historical figures smoked cannabis (and grew it). It was not until the twentieth century that society began to get all up in arms over mind altering substances. The key is moderation. Be responsible.
Taking drugs is a wonderful and life-affirming experience, as long as you do it the right way. Don’t take too many, and don’t let them take over your life. I’ve never known anyone who got addicted to ‘shrooms, but I can’t tell you how many people I’ve met in my lifetime who were addicted to alcohol and completely fucked up their lives because of it. Make sure that when you are doing drugs for the first time, that you are around people who make you comfortable and people that you can trust. As long as you use common sense, you’ll be fine. Have fun!
