On Psychedelics and Other Drugs
I used to be a big proponent of legalization for all psychedelics drugs. I am not anymore.
I wonder sometimes if I actually have bipolar disorder, or if I've simply experienced the long-term side-effects of experimenting with those substances.
I only experimented for "spiritual" reasons, never to get "fucked up". I didn't do these things often. I did Ayhusca, for example.
They altered my perception, though. And not for the better, I'd say.
I don't do drugs anymore. I haven't in a long time.
I'm now pro decriminalization, not legalization. A part of me feels like the law is there to protect me from these substances, and other people like me.
I know, historically, that doesn't seem to be the case, but that doesn't mean that perhaps the laws aren't somewhat helpful in this regard.
