Hey bombers, I was listening to the most recent bombcast and found it ironic that the staff took such an opposing stance to certain drugs. First and foremost, I agree with the cast that tobacco is generally dumb, and I will never understand why people pretend to like Cigars.
I'm not an advocate - I'm not trying to fill a deodorant stick full of LSD and rub it on Jeff Gerstmann's face (partly because: why would I give you free LSD? I'd just take it myself). I also understand that drugs like crack, cocaine, heroin and meth are not even worth my words. Those substances previously mentioned are pretty much bad no matter which way you slice 'em.
But I think it is so funny how Dan lumps in LSD with crack, meth and the like. Clearly Dan knows nothing about LSD, and the fact that he'd prefer me to be in jail as an infrequent user of this drug is pretty ridiculous. For clarity, shrooms, LSD and marijuana are not like crack, Dan. You're not gonna drop LSD and wanna throw a dumpster at someone. After taking it myself, youd have to be pretty crazy to "think you can fly" and jump out a window (as the old LSD stereotype goes). LSD makes you trip, meaning you will see beautiful visuals and start in depth conversations with your fellow trippers. It is not addicting in the slightest and the three times I have done it have been positive experiences.
Is LSD healthy? NO. Is a Big Whopper healthy? FUCK NO? Did LSD lead me to a greater appreciation for natural beauty and the friends that surround me? Personally, yes. Has a Whopper done anything but increase long-term sadness? Probably.
The point is, and Dan I hope you somehow read this: I wouldn't go on a podcast and say that people who eat whoppers should be arrested. Doesn't that sound crazy? Like Jeff said, because drugs can be inherently linked to crime, go after the distributors if you must. But leave the poor saps like my friends and I alone man. We're just trying to have a good time.even at Burning Man. And LSD, shrooms and weed are not the same level of drug use as crack, meth and heroin.
Dan, if you tried LSD, you would probably shit your pants, thank me after your trip is done and laugh about how you wanted to be a cop when you were younger.
