Well I see numerous conspiracies that can only spiral from here lets have a look what we have here.
Alcohol(not enough money for that stuff now) - Young Kids + Drugs(last resort) = Lets go half's in some pills or lets buy some weed.
I am sorry, but I would prefer my kid to try some green and get high than to start on stupidity-drug alcohol. Alcohol :
-is more addictive
-is more toxic, much more even.
-is more destructive, again, much more even.
-makes you stupid; much more braincells die off from drinking alcohol than from smoking pot.
-makes you a docile worker. But that is actually already under the stupid header.
-makes you aggressive, due to liverdamage.
Ofcourse I wouldnt want my kid to come in comntact with pills of any kind, before she would have an age at which she would be able to distinguish
between good MDMA and other, more damaging stuff.
AND ofcourse, I would inform my kid to the ins and outs of taking anything that changes brainchemistry.
And the results on the quality of life-perception.
Alcohol is and has been entirely too easily obtained by anyone, let alone kids.
Maybe you havent really actually seen the devastating effects of alcohol-use I have, and I have been closely associated with people who took pills
AND booze...these people are no longer around to tell the story.
The fact that alcohol is easily available is in my opinion responsible for the ease with which people take other drugs; usually people seem to think
that if drugs dont make you as forked up as a lot of alcohol does, it wont be so bad for you. But ofcourse we know better.
The only drugs that dont have a devastating effect are the plant-psychedelics, and those are not for most people, as they tend to change one's life
too drastically for most people and anyway those are not party-drugs.
The only conspiracy is in the fact that the hardest drugs and alcohol are totally flooding the market and the liberal advertizing-laws flood us with
ads about the niceness of a drinky on a party; brought to us with naked chicks on coke who pretend to fall for guys on booze.
Basically, the need for drugs and alcohol of the people indicates a fundamentally failing society.
No news there...
