What recreational drugs have you used ? (more than once)
 
The poll is anonymous, and you don't have to participate. You can select all that apply, but do NOT select none if you have done drugs (obviously). All currently being used drugs and past drugs count, but it has to be more than a try = more than once. So, if you've tried say weed once, it doesn't count. Also, for alcohol, I'm sure everyone has tried it more than once, and technically alcohol is also present in over ripe fruit, which surely everyone has eaten more than once, so to make it more useful, you have to have gotten drunk at least once to select alcohol. For the over-the-counter medications, I mean have you used them recreationally = to get high.

Too bad LSD doesn't have its own private little spot, it deserves it ;)

H_TeXMeX_H 01-23-2013 01:02 PM

oops, I had LSD on there, and then I replaced it when trying to group them, and forgot to add it back in.

Not sure I'd call nicotine (tobacco) or solvents "drugs".

It would have been quicker to tick what I've not tried from the list but, then, I have visited Amsterdam more than once ;).

Tobacco (nicotine) is an addictive stimulant.
Excuse me while I roll a cigarette, I haven't had one for about 15 minutes.

Gotta go with caffeine and alcohol. I was also wondering why LSD wasn't there :p. I don't do anything else. I am surprised I haven't taken up smoking, considering my parents smoke like chimneys. Also not to say that I have smoked marijuana, but my opinion, alcohol and even nicotine is much more dangerous. I think its some kind of conspiracy that marijuana is illegal, after all that would severely cut into big tobacco profits. Of course though smoking marijuana is not good for the lungs, but can't be as bad as cigarettes, because I am sure even those years back, it was just tobacco where as who knows what else is added to them these days. Then again, there are still tobacco shops so you can probably still get unadulterated tobacco.

I thought I saw news sources (sorry can't list any at the moment), stating that they would be cracking down on just tourists, therefore Amsterdam is no longer the place for a tourist to be going for a legal high. Possibly unconfirmed, but I wouldn't put it passed them.

That is what the government implemented, but there is a lot of resistance from the local (town) authorities (bbc,bbc,bbc).
Bit of a mess......

Just today one of the towns reopened its doors for foreigners (dutch nrc article)

In Amsterdam and The Hague there's no ID checking that I'm aware of.

Use netherlands coffee shop as search terms on the bbc site for a lot more articles.

I refuse to answer on the grounds that my answer may be used against me the next time I say something stupid here.

You obviously don't read the research: e.g. http://www.21stcenturysciencetech.co...al_effects.pdf

what i have not used would be the short list

linuxpokernut 01-23-2013 07:20 PM

I tried $ls /d once.

Gosh I'm clever.

Coffee is not a recreational drug. It is a vitamin.

As far as you poll goes, I'm invoking the Fifth (of Scotch).

fogpipe 01-23-2013 09:48 PM

You forgot the chemically synthesized psychedelics, peyote, the scopolamine containing plant psychedelics and ayahuasca.

I agree.

BTW, I wonder how come there are two voters (so far) who have not drunk coffee :eek:
