Harder drugs (heroin, cocaine, etc.)
Pharmaceuticals (downers, uppers, anything not perscribed to you)
I could get them from someone I know
I could track down a dealer and purchase/steal the substance
None of the above
Any of the above, a couple phone calls. Pharmaceuticals are trickier if we're looking for something specific, but worst case scenario I can get a legitimate prescription and use it to forge a scrip for anything I might need.
I heard about someone who does this occasionally when he needs antibiotics but can't afford an office visit.
Come to think of it, it wouldn't be that difficult at all for me to convince my doctors to up my dosages on most of what I'm taking now, and I could make a decent sideline on the surplus. Unfortunately, don't know anyone I trust well enough to deal for me.
The point is to show how ineffective the war on drugs is. If a bunch of fairly average not-terribly criminal people like us who probably aren't all junkies can easily find drugs, its pretty clear that it won't be a barrier to anyone who actually wants them. I am willing to bet that if you asked "could you get marijuana more easily actually getting a prescription for a drug you are allowed to take?" it wouldn't look good for either the war on drugs or the Healthcare system.Any particular reason you're wanting to know these things?
I would also ask "how easy was it to get alcohol as a minor?" just to round out the complete failure of prohibition in keeping the stuff out of people's hands.
Yeah, I could.
I could also rob a store, murder a person or speak on the cellphone while drunk-driving.

Any of the above after a 30 minute drive to go visit a friend.
I am a Tiki Bar Tarte, do you really think you can Tango with me?!?

I honestly have no idea how I'm supposed to track down illegal drug dealers. I could get marijuana from my friends if I wanted to (which I don't want to), that's it.
