Personally, I have ADHD. Had I not taken ritilin (SP?) and later dexadrine, I never would have learned to hate them and adjust myself so as to
convince my parents I was taking it when I did not.
As far as schools pushing drugs, I think they do a phenomenal job in Health class. I watch videos as a freshman and sophmore in highschool that
addressed the risks to drugs. Pot was the last thing they talked about, typically. And let me tell you, from all the videos I've seen, pot is the
most dangerous drug out there. You hallucinate, you get the shakes, you lose all inhibition, your balls fall off, you lose all your teeth, you get
bloody noses, you lose all immune system function, etc.
Well, I bought into that propoganda until I accidently tired pot (had some tobacco, a cousin "made" a foiler boiler (found out he made it the night
before afterwards) we smoked the nicotine and got high). After the first time, I started sampling regularly. Why? My balls didn't fall off.
Everything the video told me was BS about pot. So what else was it lying about? That was, right there, the point in time I stopped trusting my
government and my school. That was also the point in time were I started to question EVERYTHING. You make a statement, I have to verify it by 2 other
sources before I'll believe you. Because of drug videos. So yeah, I think the schools are pushing drugs. I haven't tried hard core drungs, but I
doubt they're as bad for you as the propoganda machine wants you to believe.
EDIT: Whoop, forgot, if you do pot, you'll also have kids without eyelids, if you have em at all. The seed controversy? The one where they make you
sterile? Well, my buds from the 60s and 70s refer to the seeds as charcoal. They keep it going and save you lighter fuel. If this was the mentality
then, why the heck were they able to have kids?!?!?! We should have an entire sterile generation!
