lol...i dont think you were "suicidal" enough during your depression episode

thats a good thing...

if youre mobile...if one is determined to die...your options are limitless

you dont need to go buy that otc med, prescription required or not...


Oh how very true... its so incredibly easy.


Thing is... most dont really want to die.. unless you take the guy that ran head first into the wood chipper. I figure he was serious. When I was working, suicide attempts came in... not ONCE did one say.. nahh dont save my life and let me die. EVERY one begged to be saved when they figured out it was for keeps. The ones that didnt want to live never made it to the ER.. the people who were actually serious.

I don't understand your comment above. Foxglove is toxic and has caused deaths to human beings. See the info bellow from drugs.com:



Digitalis
Scientific Name(s): Digitalis purpurea L.; Digitalis lanata Ehrh; Family: Scrophulariaceae (figworts)

Common Name(s): Foxglove , digitalis , purple foxglove , throatwort , fairy finger , fairy cap , lady's thimble , scotch mercury , lion's mouth , witch's bells , dead man's bells , woolly foxglove

Toxicology
All parts of the plant are toxic. The incidence of digitalis toxicity in therapeutic use has been estimated to range from 5% to 25%. Ingestion of extremely small amounts of the plant may be fatal to humans, especially children, and to animals. Toxicity is cumulative.

Toxicology
All parts of the plant are toxic. Animal toxicity occurs during grazing. Children have become ill by sucking the flowers or ingesting seeds or parts of the leaves. Deaths have been reported among people who drank tea made from digitalis mistakenly identified as comfrey, although the bitter taste often deters ingestion, and its emetic properties can induce vomiting, thereby limiting systemic absorption. Digitalis poisoning is also associated with intentional ingestion with suicidal intent.

What do you mean Suicide Drugs could be made available "over the counter"?

I could walk a block to my local liquor store, by a 2/6 for $24, down it in the parking lot, and die an hour later.

Seems to me like there are more than enough suicide drugs already available.

Or a bullet and a gun, or even a plastic bag to put over your head etc... the list could go on for ages.

I know, right?

When you think about it though, if actual safe and quick suicide drugs were available, less people would be hurt by failed attempts (guns), and bystanders wouldn't have to accidentally watch or be involved in someone's suicide.

Yes indeed, but also they could be used for negative purposes too, just like everything can be. It would be really easy to put into someones drink, although i know, there are poisons and drugs already out there that will do that as well.

You totally misunderstood me.

I was being vague on purpose to keep my post clean basically.

The "herb" I was talking about is called Cannabis Sativa.

I am pretty sure you know all about it already but just in case you never heard of it, here is a wikipedia link on it.

So muh for the sanctity of life and respect of fellow humans, hugh? i can see it now..teens going through hard times, being bullied, for eexample, wroing crowd of others, will take these suicide pills, without knowing the hardships life is really about..take the easy way out* an aciddntal homicide* is how ide look at it.

That is my concern also. It would be too easy,regardless of whether or not
it is by prescription or not...Prescription drug abuse is huge, everywhere.

Sounds like a easy depopulation plan to me......

OMG over the counter? i am all for suicide drugs if somebody is in pain and the quality of life has diminished to the point of it being unbareable, but over the counter?

i thought if it were legalised it would be done in a way that can be monitored and recorded, in a special place or someone sent to the home address if they prefer to die at home, if the person themselves cannot speak and agree to it then it is not done.

over the counter sounds to me like anyone can pick up the drug and do away with whoever they see fit. even if it is prescribed by a doctor, that does not mean the person collecting the drug is going to use it on the person it is suppose to be used on.

lets hope if it happens there are no thefts etc of the drug.

Reason Number Uno why this is a bad idea.

I don't like you.
I go buy suicide pills.
I break them into powder.
I put it in your drink.

That's why it's a bad idea....

I don't buy any of this legal Euthenasia stuff.
If anyone wants to end it, all they have to do is go to their local drug dealer and get enough Heroin to do the job. For a couple of dollars.
The chances are no one will get caught, cause millions of these types of transactions go on every day with no drama.
People die of drug overdoses everyday and NO ONE gets arrested in 99.9% of cases for supplying the drugs.

If there already is an easy way to do it NOW why is this subject bought up so often?

Cause they are brainwashing and conditioning us to get used to the idea.
Kind of like, plant a seed and watch it grow...

They've realised they can't kill us off quick enough, so have now decided to make it easier for us to do the job ourselves. And MANY will fall for it.
They don't want people clogging up hospital wards clinging to HOPE. If you can't work and pay taxes and GIVE instead of take up space and cost them, they'd prefer you dead now please.

And heroin will get you good and #ed up before you die, so you die happier then you've ever been. And you'd just pass out and die.

my views on volutary euthenasia , are simples - it should only be allowed for terminal illness patients who have no hope of remission and the prospect of plummeting quality of life

Adults have the goddamn right to do whatever they want to their bodies as long as no one else is hurt by these actions. Legalize everything from suicide to weed to hookers! I vote YEA.
