Obviously not all drugs are like that, but I think if the British Government told the truth to schoolkids then there would be hardly anyone taking drugs in this country.
Had they told me the REAL truth about drugs, I'd probably wouldn't have lost my driving license and job, put it that way.

Schools are just propagandizing your children. Yes drugs are bad.
But do they really teach you not to take Oxycodone? what about Ritalin? Or Prozac/Zoloft/Wellbutrin? Valium/Klonopin/seroquel (now also for ANXIETY!)?
But if you smoke pot your evil, and condemning yourself to a horrendous life.
To be blunt I have many pot smoker friends. All of whom are fairly successful for their age.
There are drugs that are problems in this society, and those need to be addressed... Most High School age kids aren't interested in shooting heroin, or other hard drugs. If Memory serves me correctly the hardest drug in my High school (class of 2000) was Cocaine. As many of the druggies I knew in school I would have had knowledge of people doing anything harder.
If our drug education classes would quit focusing on pot; and start focusing on heroin, coke, and other lethal drugs (as well as Synthetic Heroin aka pharmaceuticals) the kids might actually learn something.
What is taught in drug education is mostly propaganda to keep people away from marijuana. I even recall my teacher telling me smoking 1 marijuana cigarette was worse than two packs of cigarettes a day.
Interesting, The legal drugs get an endorsement in Drug class. The natural ones get denigrated.
If you want your kids drug free, the best method is to teach them yourself.

No, its exactly the way I think. Just don't use drugs that ravage your body. Not all drugs have negative side effects. Research, I can't believe how many people are UFO nuts on this website but noone takes the time to induce contact. I know that weed helps to reach a common wavelength and frequency and if you use outside, you can attract star beings. Ever think maybe that the feds know of this too and thus people are too scared to spark up a joint outside? It's funny cuz last night I did it, played some good trance music and watched as they got closer and closer, and then, oddly enough...everything became sexual. It felt amazing, like I was making love to some benevolent being that knows true tantric teachings.
Also, I went outside because I needed guidance in my life, and I'm not very religious but I prayed on the way home that if I took a walk it would guide me. I called up my girlfriend I recently broke up with and we sorta started to talk, she gave me guidance about how I should be with her, and it was the first time I was ever so open to listening. I even felt true empathy when she cried.
Prophetlike. Oddly enough, many of our religious figures were drug users. You also gain an awareness to the subliminals in music, as if some artists seek to pave the path for the rest of us. www.pulsradio.com is notorious for songs like this...just tune in my friend.
This was off one harmless bowl in my pipe. About 2 and a half joints. (Joint = 20% THC, Pipe bowl = 60%) Noone died.
