Are We Really Back to Reefer Madness?

Wow, just saw this video from the US Navy:

Look, I’m no proponent of “Bath Salts”, and frankly the only reason why people do that crap is because its one way to keep ahead of drug possession laws and testing.

Really this screams of this:

Honestly I don’t know much about the effects of this family of drugs (also given the rapid changes in formulation to evade the law, possibly nobody else does either), but videos like this make me scratch my head and have serious doubts.

Also what’s the DOCTOR on? He kinda creeps me out too!

This is yet another event of unintended consequences from the “War on Drugs”. In college I knew a guy who had a pretty serious drug problem, and this problem led him to get arrested and put on parole. While on parole he was regularly drug tested, and being a guy who didn’t like to go very long without SOMETHING in his system, he turned to alternatives that wouldn’t show up in tests. He told me he had taken Robitussin for hallucinogenic effects, and described the resultant experience as “Not Worth It”.

Still this crap along with “Bath Salts” and “Spice” are popular because they sidestep around laws and testing kits.

Can we please end this horrible foolishness? People want to take drugs, and they want to take them so badly they risk prosecution, and death. We really need to re-think these things.

    I have no problem with legalization — as soon as we have a way of keeping drug addicts off of “disability”. They disabled themselves; why should working people be forced to support them?
