    I have a certain disdain for those who NEED it as well. I just want to make sure that you know that people exist who use substances like Psilocybin and LSD who do not need them anymore than they need morphine.

    I have heard LSD isnt addictive at all. But in all fairness its one of the most lethal drugs.

    Huh?
    I've never heard of anyone dying from acid.
    Anyone. Ever.

    I think of it as a middle-school drug.

    LSD is not toxic or lethal on its own.

    of LSD itself have occurred, though LSD has been implicated in
    accidental deaths, suicides, and homicides. LD50

    I had it confused with GHB which is lethal and have had a number of cases of overdoses and strange deaths in Norway(tiny country)..

    Is this FACT or your opinion?

    Are they on banned substance lists?

    It is TOXIC. It may not be LETHAL, but it is still toxic.

    You have no idea how happy I was when I found out she was cheating on me with this bridge troll who lived in a trailer in the middle of a junkyard. While she was still over there, I packed up all her things, which amounted to 3 suitcases, took'em over to that trailer, and set it outside the door. Thought about giving the guy $20 bucks for getting the allbatross off my back, but decided to use it to get her best friend in bed.

    Boy, was that a mistake!

    Not according to the definition in the dictionary:

    "1: containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation <toxic waste> <a toxic radioactive gas> <an insecticide highly toxic to birds>" - toxic - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

    The drug on it's own cannot cause any of those things marked in red.

    "LSD is remarkably non-toxic, has no known adverse physical after-effects, other than fatigue and a lingering sensation of mind-expansion." - LSD - Dangers - The Good Drugs Guide

    LSD is one of the least toxic chemicals known to man. It is less poisonous than aspirin and vitamin C.

    Are you afraid of vitamin C as well?
