Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
MGMT and LSD.

I admit to not understanding alcohol. Such an unpleasant drug. And yes, there are people who become addicted although I'm not sure that that can happen as quickly as opiates will attatch you. But I'm (speculating) that MOST people can drink alcohol, even get drunk, for a few days and not experience cravings. I didn't know Benzos were addictive. I know that some people can and do abuse them but I didn't know it was an addiction per se (again using opiates a my frame of reference).
So, here's the thing. If you have a drink or pop a Zanny, you likely won't need to do it again. OTOH it takes just one cigarette or a few ingestions of opiates and you will have to fight your way back to normalcy.
The 2 OP drugs though are definitely NOT addictive in the traditional sense.
I know LOTS of people who are long term "social smokers". People who only smoke about once a month (my wife). I know numerous people who have used opiates "on occasion" without becoming addicted.
Those drugs are highly addictive, yes, but they aren't "one and done" like how they are portrayed.
As far as LSD and psilocybin go with regard to addiction, there is a good deal of research which indicates they can be used to help fight alcohol addiction. My former supervisor is an expert on using psychotropics to treat various mental health issues and he speaks on the topic at various conferences nationally each year. He gave me a ton of good research articles on the use of psilocybin to treat addiction, migraines, etc.
