My thought is there's a movie in this. I asked what scares you; legalized drugs scare me. Synthetic drugs scare me. People who can't figure out they're dogmeat when they take drugs scare me. But then how many low budget horror movies have already started this way? Don't care, they still scare me.
If you go to see the next such film, the career you save could be my own.
Oooops. I (for one) actually LIKE "drugs". With fantasy so much more fun than reality... (Is there anything that doesn't have a "down side"?)
Lessee... One definition for "drug" = a medicine or other substance which has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body.
... and "physiological effect"? = "Of or relating to physiology. Being in accord with or characteristic of the normal functioning of a living organism. Relating to the action of a drug when given to a healthy person, as distinguished from its therapeutic action.
(Tried "normal", but didn't like it much. Hehe)
Watt might be amusing? How some stuff can be "normal" with other stuff "not normal"... which can vary over time and space, between different cultures, etc.
For example, tried nicotine? I currently am going "trans dermal". Ground up tobacco leaves as nasal "snuff". (Caution! Watch out for the dangers of secondhand snot.) Turns out ya can still buy this stuff from England:
Decades ago stumbled across the hemp plant. ... and who doesn't like mushrooms? (See "psilocybin". hehe)
Quote another old sailor “I drink to make other people more interesting.” (re alcohol)
nEVer used a needle to inject anything (`cept in a hospital where I was unconscious and staff didn't ask for permission).
Currently "addicted" to acetylsalicylic acid (see "aspirin"). And have tried that other "acid" (see lysergic acid diethylamide).
EDIT: Forgot to mention one other "drug"... from the coffee bean.
And now back to regular ES programming.
ES changed my life (for the waaaaay better).
