On the subject of drugs, I don't understand why people talk about drug abuse.
What else are you supposed to do with an E except neck it, a spliff other than smoke it, a line of cocaine other than snort it?

Not all drug use is recreational.

It becomes abuse when you neck the spliff, smoke the cocaine and snort the E.

You know, I was thinking about those looney tunes this morning. The BBC website has some stills of the heli crash this morning. One was taken from the top of the MI6 building. No doubt taken by the spotter who was guiding the aim of the bloke who brought the heli down with a SAM, obviously...

You can just tell he's one of those people who order in a Chinese restaurant in a mock Chinese accent.

If it weren't so appalling, it would be sad. But I refuse to allow sadness to overpower my complete and utter disgust at this evil racist bile!

I find the advocating of drug use for recreational purposes abhorrent.

As for Kim Jong Richard's racism, I was told that he listens to hip hop so he can say the n-word while pretending to sing along to the lyrics.

What about tea or coffee?
Ecstasy? A few well publicised deaths but considering how long it has been taken for and the amount of people who have taken it, it seems pretty safe.
Marijooanna? No deaths ever directly attributed to it.
Heroin? Pure heroin does no physical harm and going cold turkey to kick won't kill you.
Alcohol? Many, many deaths and if you are addicted, stopping suddenly could kill you.

I know drugs is/was your thing in a professional sense (I don't mean that DDD is a drug dealer), but if the harm various drugs do to the body, alcohol and tobacco would never be legal but Weed and Es would.

What about taking drugs professionally e.g a wine taster? Is that still abhorrent to you?

Your being obtuse. We've been over this.

They may be all psychoactive. How they affect the brain is mostly different and to varying degrees.

I'll give you a pint of tea, a pint of coffee and the equivalent in weed, ecstasy, heroin, cigarettes and alcohol and we'll observe which has the more damaging and lasting effects.

He should pretend to be Eddie Murphy instead.

I'll give you a pint of tea, a pint of coffee and the equivalent in weed, ecstasy, heroin, cigarettes and alcohol and we'll observe which has the more damaging and lasting effects.

Lets talk in terms of doses.
Cup of tea: Minimal effect - Minimal damage
Cup of coffee: Some effect - Minimal damage
One joint: Some effect - Minimal damage
One ecstasy tablet: Effective - Minimal damage
One dose of heroin: Effective - Minimal damage
One cigarette: Some effect - Minimal damage
One pint of beer: Effective - Minimal damage

Conclusion: One dose of just about any drug isn't very damaging. Repeated doses is where the potential problem is. I'm pretty sure we can agree on that.
However, repeated doses (or 'cups' as users call it) won't do you much harm. Neither will pharmaceutical grade heroin, but street heroin isn't pure and its the additives which cause the harm. It is also addictive and this leads to the social problems of users committing crime to feed their addiction.

Also, addiction and craving isn't the same for all drugs. I've never heard of a smoker going on the game to buy a pack of Marlboro Lights.

Don't confuse the medical problems that drugs can cause with the social problems that addiction can lead to.

Is it racist to mimic different accents? If so which ones are on the banned list and why. I'm not great but usually have a go at the relevant accent to any anecdote. I also find myself unconsciously slipping into a copy if someone has a strong twang! I realise it can be used to bully or belittle but I don't think quoting a cartoon fits that criteria.
