Time to ban Reddi-Wip, too.


Not only did someone get high from the N2O and die, but he choked to death on the whip cream while huffing.

If this thread makes anyone feel good about doing nitrous oxide, DON'T! Not at dentists, not at parties, not if your mom and dad give you some. Most old-time marijuana activists would actually engage in a fist fight to keep it out of parties and gatherings because the stuff is so dangerous. I know his name has been dragged through the mud by the MSM, so of course ATS'ers go along with it (duh), but L. Ron Hubbard said Nitrous is the worse drug anyone can take, that the damage it did to the brain was like being punched in the head by a prize fighter. Those on this thread promoting it need a wake-up call, and I hope the UK enacts the ban.

Uh, what thread are you reading? I don't think anybody has promoted it...

I read many of the posts differently, even the OP itself ("the UK is now going full retard and wants to even ban simple laughing gas"), regarding safety and the fact that people should not be even hinting that this stuff is okay to take, even at the dentist. I've never had it, but have seen the results, and know a major hemp/grass activist who got into one of the fistfights kicking a seller out of a weekend festival. This stuff is the opposite of safe drug use.

That's so 1930's. It didn't turn out too well.


Oh yeah

O and nutmeg.

Nutmeg acts like certain mushrooms in high amounts.

Also acts as a laxative to at those doses.


You do not want to vomit nutmeg... trust me.

The stuff is entirely safe for its' intended use (such as at the dentist). Trust me, there are far, far worse drugs out there.

So I trust most people see your extreme bias and ridiculousness. Not even a dentist should use it? I think you're way out of line here. Not a single post is promoting it, rather has a balanced take. From your extreme view, it could seem as if anything but being extreme as you against it could be promoting, but that's because you're not being reasonable.

I used to get that stuff during dental visits.
It sure made the dentist experience much more pleasurable.

More pleasurable than the hypothetical experience of getting nothing, but still terrifying.
"I want to breathe... something comes in every time I try... it's pulling me apart..."
They do that for fun?


Medical personnel mix with oxygen at proper amounts and it's not terrifying. You're constantly monitored by a specialist while the dentist works. It's only relaxing at that level.

My point is proven by your post. If anyone who hasn't done it thinks, after reading this thread, that this stuff is okay to experiment with, just don't. Peer pressure may draw you in to try it, again, just don't. Stupid is as stupid does.

I've said what I had to say, hopefully it will resonate with someone. Extreme? Glad to be an extremist on this issue.

Actually, it's not that big a deal. As long as you take a good portion of air along with your hit instead of straight N20. Someone "experimenting" should be aware of that. If they aren't, then they aren't "experimenting."

Nitrogen narcosis, same thing you get breathing air deep under water.

I was remembering the experience of feeling terrified.
Something slightly painful invading the lungs every time I breathed in while conscious. The sensation of being "unrolled" and somehow "peeled off", getting "detached" and drifting away.
I have no doubt that it was medically safe under those conditions. That wasn't my point.

Why? In my opinion (and speaking as someone who used to be addicted to hard drugs; not silly nitrous crap), the more extreme the anti-drug rhetoric is, the more alluring the drugs become to those who are curious.

If you want to keep kids off drugs, the way to do it is by approaching the subject realistically and moderately, and by educating them on the possible dangers.

100% accurate. It seems the ones most likely to experiment and get addicted are the ones with the curiosity to bypass societies irrational warnings and take the risks. The best way to work with those kind of people is to treat them like they are, capable of sniffing out BS, and telling them the whole story as is.

i completely agree. for young people experimentation is practically inevitable anyway - a productive discourse will work much better than blanket, agressively punitive dictats and over-harsh legislation.

I wasn't promoting.

I just think a ban is ridiculous as prohibition does not work and it should be left to the individual.

Every law was probably inspired by one stupid a-hole.
