I wanted to start a new thread because our discussion is a little off topic under the other thread. http://talk.drugabuse.com/threads/a...hats-what-marijuana-is.2140/page-3#post-34037 Okay, as discussed, there is a benefit for regulating these now illegal substances, so we are not dealing with who knows what is an illegal man-made drug. At the same time, I am not a proponent for the need to experiment with all kinds of drugs in order to decide for yourself what works and what doesn't. For example, I just can not wrap my head around the need, let alone benefit to hallucinate. Believe me, I have tried to understand, but have come up with no logical reason. Perhaps you could expand on why you think it is important to play around (experiment) with some of these substances beyond the fact that we should not allow others to tell us what is good or bad for us?
