    well, fresh magic mushrooms arent illegal. theyre only illegal if prepared i.e. dried or preserved in some way.
    i dont know the exact reasons why some drugs are more illegal than others, but LSD can cause severe psychosis in some people. it wont kill you but IMO should be used with real caution as its very powerful. i dont know why cannabis is illegal. i think its something to do with the fact that America banned it because of pressure from the cotton trade and Britain just copied.

    I would like to point out that drugs are illegal because they do more harm than good. Marijuana (aka Cannabis) is illegal because of the severe health risks. MJ contains more ammonia than cigarettes and harms the brain in such a way, that people could become mentally disabled. There is also a large risk factor of marijuana being psychologically addictive. Also, DUIs are caused by highs from marijuana as much as they are from drunkenness. LSD is a deadly and dangerous drug that has proven to be fatally addictive. Drugs are illegal to try to prevent ignorance, however, and unfortunately, Americans have found a way around the system. <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    LSD is a deadly and dangerous drug that has proven to be fatally addictive.

    You are seriously misinformed...

    Firstly on the dangerous and deadly side:

    "LSD is one of the least toxic chemicals known to man. It is less poisonous than aspirin and vitamin C."

    ".. found an average of 1.8 psychotic episodes per thousand ingestions, 1.2 attempted suicides, and 0.4 completed suicides. Considering the enormous scope of the psychic responses it induces, LSD is an astonishingly safe drug."

    ... followed by the addiction side:

    "Physically speaking, virtually zero. The typical amount of LSD ingested is microscopic (100 millionths of a gram) and tolerance builds up quickly - you have to wait 3 or 4 days before LSD will work on you again. However, like any drug, you can get captivated by the way it makes you feel and the insights you may have under its influence. It is possible to become psychological addicted to LSD. And if you're doing it twice a week or every weekend, it will become difficult to it relate to the 'real world'."

    I suggest you read this before you make any more misinformed comments:

    I take Acid quite regularly over in NZ, I enjoy the trips, its been a memoral experience each time, I've never had a bad trip (and I take 2 a night when clubbing) and you can't overdose on Acid to the extent of overdosing and it causing physical harm... its a very safe drug!

    dont talk shit Jojack. I dont take any drugs myself anymore. i dont think any of them are that great but i dont think anyones ever died as a direct result of taking LSD. its not fatally addictive <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> ive never ever heard of a single person whos been addicted to LSD, can you let us know where you got your facts from? im sure cannabis can cause some damage with long term use, but certainly not enough to justify it being illegal.

    JoJack, change the record - the government has, you need to catch-up bud!

    This is from my site's front page;

    OFFICIAL FACTS!
    Isn’t cannabis addictive?
    FACT: Its dependence potential is substantially less than that of tobacco or alcohol.

    What about health problems?
    FACT: The high use of cannabis is not associated with major health problems for the individual or society.

    Does cannabis lead to hard drugs?
    FACT: The risks (if any) are small and less than those associated with the use of tobacco or alcohol.

    **These FACTS are direct quotes from the ‘The Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs’ report (March 2002), commissioned by the Home Office.

    I like the bit about 'HIGH USE' - suits me, sir!

    well not all what jojack sais is false...cannabisa is more nocive than cigarettes and it can creat a big psychological addiction, probably thats why its illegal...lsd cretes no physical addiction, but there is there a risk that you hurt urself...it was made illegal cuz somme ppl thought they could fly when they were high on acid and they jumped off bildings and kill themselves...but lsd and cannabis can have really positive effects...i see a lsd trip like a long climax, its so pleasant...and cannabis increases my endurance to runnin ;p

    Presumably, the reason why such drugs are contraband is to prevent people like you, who can't even spell "illegal" using them, and protecting society as a whole. I have no problems with educated people, who know what they do, and have researched before they indulge in using drugs. J, eb, JC, and others on this post show maturity that you don't. And therefore, that's why they're illegal.

    I would never try LSD. My friends Mum told us about when she took it in the 60s and if you have mental health problems or are feeling down it can be very harmful psychologically. So I think it is good that it is illegal. Not cannabis though.

    If alcohol had been discovered now it would probably be made illegal.

    Is it true that it is illegal to make your own drinks at home?

    DJ, for once I think you are slightly wrong, how you spell has nothing to do with your common sense, not everyone can spell or write well, they may be dyslexic, but it doesn't make them stupid.

    no, you are allowed to make alcoholic drinks for your own consumption , thats why they sell kits. youre not allowed to sell your homebrew though or homemade wine. its also illegal to distill alcohol

    DJ thats not fair im not alowed to smoke herb because im dyslexic.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    No, you're not allowed to smoke it because you don't know enough about it, as evidenced by the fact that you want to know why they're illegal! People who have an idea of what they're getting in to are fine by me; something like eb's drug licence idea....

    Just think about what your saying there, its hardly possible to enforce is it ? Anyone can claim to be an artist, you can't legalise drugs for certain sections of society and not for others, you either go all the way or stay as you are.
