Harm Reduction Resources / Re: Drugs CAN be bad, m'kay?

But not always if you remember to: 

Eat. I like to keep a bag of mandarin oranges around.

Beer doesn't count as water either.
Uhm, im guessing you are joking but some drugs can be very bad, and a little bit of food and water aint gonna change shit. Sure most of the classic drugs aren't so bad but there are some that can literally fry your liver or shut down your kidneys. Be vary of what you ingest since there are monetary gains to be had when dealing with drugs, that is if you are buying them.

I feel for those whose life is/will be screwed from this bust.

The band leader was currently under house arrest while directing the criminal organization - that is, he had been previously convicted of drug-related issues. Sounds crazy, but that's the way it is ...  ???

Chemistry Discourse / Re: Vilsmeier without POCl3

Stumbled upon this thread.
I researched that a while ago because I did not want to buy POCl3, and apparently you can even use SOCl2 or oxalyl chloride to create the vilsmeier reagent from DMF.

Thanks for that Carl.  How did they not loosen their ties?  They had it under control for the most part.  Couldn't play cards, hahahaha.  Those guys.  What fun.

Wow, that came out longer than I thought it would. This is what i believe is necessary for ending the dark age of drugs.

I hope you agree with me and are a part of the movement to make these things a reality.

Also, that was my mandatory post to this category, pretty nice idea. Is this rule enforced somehow?

I believe that the so-called drugs are by far the area of most misinformation, myths, urban legends, misconceptions and lies. This is amplified by the majority of users being unwilling (or unable) to listen to reason when being corrected about the true nature of these chemicals they happily consume, let alone educating themselves on these matters. The old "truths" are still being circulated, and the lack of criticism towards these tales is crippling.

This is part legacy of the 'war on drugs' misinformation released as the truth, and part information that (even if true originally) has been circulating among the users and dealers for ages, perhaps losing part of the information or maybe even changing it slightly when being passed on. This adds up over time, and corrupts even the most valid information out there.

This is frustrating, as it is hard to get people to abandon their deep-rooted beliefs and embrace the facts & science on these matters, even when presented in the most convincing way possible. It also doesn't help that virtually all research on outlawed psychoactive substances has ceased.

There is one answer to all this: Education. We must be persistent in our efforts cutting out the myths & lies and replacing those with true knowledge and solid research. We must be able to discuss the policies governing these issues publicly, without being immediately discredited, disregarded and labeled as a "goddamn druggie hippie".

I hope I will see things moving forward, the general public opening their eyes and seeing & hearing for themselves rather than sticking to the misinformation out there, seeing drug users down on their luck as people instead of just criminals, open discussion, rewriting the (obivously failed and ineffective) policies concerning these psychoactive substances and realizing the potential that is present in these substances.
