so many people look like that in urban areas

2018-11-13 00:13:57 UTC  

at least in Seattle and Spokane

2018-11-13 00:14:32 UTC  

like, a lot of these drugs are supposedly a rural problem, but go to a bus station in a big city and 🤢

2018-11-13 00:15:09 UTC  

Methy whites are a depressing sight

2018-11-13 00:16:35 UTC  

I live in a rural area with multiple trailer parks and somehow I don't see nearly as... uh... problematic people as I do in urban areas

2018-11-13 00:18:33 UTC

2018-11-13 00:18:50 UTC  

Meth is awful. Please never do it and help your family if they are addicted.

2018-11-13 00:19:47 UTC  

You don't need to convince anyone in here, lol

2018-11-13 00:19:48 UTC  

I have a friend with drug problems. Wish I could help him but I honestly don't know what to do with him.

2018-11-13 00:20:03 UTC  

Why do people do meth in the first place? I genuinely can't comprehend hurting myself like that

2018-11-13 00:20:40 UTC  

I can

2018-11-13 00:20:50 UTC  

You life sucks and you just say "fuck it" at some point

2018-11-13 00:20:58 UTC  

I'm so sorry about your friend, Jacob. It sucks to feel helpless.

2018-11-13 00:21:20 UTC  

I think they mostly have to help themselves

2018-11-13 00:21:26 UTC  

Remember when Trump suggested killing hard drug dealers

2018-11-13 00:21:31 UTC  

Have any of you seen the movie 'Trainspotting'/

2018-11-13 00:21:37 UTC  


2018-11-13 00:21:38 UTC  

Whatever happened to that

2018-11-13 00:21:48 UTC  

Honestly, it sucks even seeing people get sucked into marijuana. Like, it's supposedly not harmful, but it turns previously fun people into apathetic losers.

2018-11-13 00:22:03 UTC  

If I were a parent, and my kid were addicted, I'd do what they did in that movie. (It's non-violent but it's spoilers, so I can't say)

2018-11-13 00:22:31 UTC  

Duterte style drug enforcement

2018-11-13 00:22:56 UTC  

Do we have any members from Mississippi?

2018-11-13 00:23:21 UTC  

Every friend of mine whom I’ve tried to help kick their meth use told me they all started with weed, then you gradually move to stronger stuff, shrooms, cocaine, heroin, etc... you are always seeking a more intense high. And they said meth is much cheaper than heroin or cocaine.

2018-11-13 00:23:53 UTC

2018-11-13 00:24:25 UTC  

it's so creepy how defensive they get

2018-11-13 00:24:31 UTC  

I'm not encouraging it but LSD is physically safe and gets someone high out of their mind for 12 hours at the price of a movie ticket

2018-11-13 00:24:33 UTC  

My mother and father recently got medical marijuana just to smoke and not be bored. Nothing I can do to dissuade them.

2018-11-13 00:24:36 UTC  

And a lot of people start doing Meth because they are self medicating so to speak, so there are some bigger underlying issues

2018-11-13 00:24:36 UTC  

The point being

2018-11-13 00:24:40 UTC  

Trying meth is dumb

2018-11-13 00:25:23 UTC  

I have a friend with really bad pain who uses marijuana. In that case it's kind of understandable.

2018-11-13 00:26:01 UTC  

But when people use it recreationally and go like "dude it cures cancer" that's just retarded

2018-11-13 00:26:09 UTC  

@Selma I suppose it's better than using opioids.

2018-11-13 00:26:37 UTC  

depends on the opioid

2018-11-13 00:27:45 UTC  

I’ve taken in friends who were addicted through the years, to try to help them out and it never turned out good: they’d steal from me, lie, I’ve spent many nights driving around looking for them in shady parts of town, bailed them out of jail, etc

2018-11-13 00:27:48 UTC  

The "hardest" drugs I could tolerate under any circumstance are psychedelics since they're not physically addictive and theoretically serve a non recreational purpose

2018-11-13 00:28:06 UTC  

There's a reason they call it "cope".

2018-11-13 00:28:23 UTC  

I think Evola tried psychedelics

2018-11-13 00:28:29 UTC  

Again not encouraging it

2018-11-13 00:28:31 UTC  

I like smoking weed. I don't. But I enjoyed it when I did. Never did any hard drugs. That's for losers.

2018-11-13 00:30:58 UTC  

There are some people I know from HS that never got past the stoner phase and are stuck as losers.
