    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Only if you wish to spread disinformation. Alcohol is damaging in large amounts, it has beneficial effects in low amounts. Cigarettes are rather bad as well, but do not cause permanent brain "damage" (for lack of a better word) for limited uses. Ecstasy does, it eats holes in the brain. Saying otherwise is dangerous, stupid, and misleading.

    Most substances, taken in the 'right' quantities, or one or twice, have just as much adverse effects as the others. It's when these substances are abused that we run into problems. Anything in excess is bad.

    Not prolonged, immediate. Studies show that that effect occurs with very limited use, the effects on chemical receptors in the brain is profound. Ecstasy is bad, that's all there is to it. Doing it is stupid, that's all there is to it. I understand people wanting to do drugs and such, and I'll let people make their own mistakes. But people should talk honestly about the drug use. If you look up the studies, you'll find that there is good indication that effects of ecstasy can manifest themselves after the first use.

    Yup. I'm not going to run people's lives. But there are serious side effects of hardcore drugs. People want to make alcohol and tobacco out to be some of the most hardcore **** you can do. And they have bad effects, there's no doubt about that. But compared to some other things, they're kittens. People talk about "expanding their minds" or whatever hippie BS through drug use. You expand your mind by thinking, by arguing, by researching, by learning. Not by killing off portions of your brain, essentially spitting in the face of evolution. Now some of the more natural hallucinogens don't do the sort of damage that manufactured ones do. But still, you have to be careful less you're really going for the brain damage. Which in that case, just huff some glue or paint and be done with it.

    People seem to forget that the MA in MDMA stands for methamphetamine. The drug has legitimate therapeutic uses, but it is a terrible thing to do for recreational purposes.

    I don't care. As long the business operates in accordance with local regulations it makes no difference to me what drugs people use or where they use them.

    I've done E a couple of times. I'm sure the effects on my brain were not positive, but the mental and physical pleasure I felt was intense. Really intense.
