Title: Drugs
Posted: March 18, 2010 (05:35 PM)
I take it for granted that for the past three years I've lived in a place where drugs are accessible and their use isn't exactly out of the ordinary. Drug use is generally recreational rather than addictive, and both house management and members are pretty vigilant about making sure that it is safe and controlled.

At my weekly meeting of Toastmasters (an international organization for practicing public speaking), a friend of mine gave a speech on how he experienced firsthand his roommate's drug abuse, which forced his roommate to drop out of school. For him it reaffirmed his inclination to not do drugs and those slogans about not doing them.

While I was in a convenience store with some people from the Berkeley Undergraduate Sociology Association, I remarked that "I like Coke," as someone was buying one. Someone jokingly interpreted that as cocaine, which actually resulted in a conversation where I disclosed that I had done such drugs as cocaine, MDMA and acid before. The club president (who is gay and I think likes me) was noticeably surprised.

Strangely enough, I walked out into the common space of my 150 student house today, and saw about six or seven of my housemates filling out statements for something. I asked around, and apparently one of the house dealers, who I have bought marijuana and MDMA from, OD'ed. A floormate went into his room just to say hi and found him. I'm not sure how he's doing so far, but I hope he's okay. He's a good guy.

I've never heard of MDMA before. I've always made a practice of not using illegal drugs. I rarely even take Advil. I prefer to be in control of my brain--what little there is of it--at all times so I can't look back on some future, tragic mistake and know that I could have potentially avoided it by not choosing to do something like taking drugs.

MDMA is basically Ecstasy. I say MDMA to encompass both Ecstasy and Molly (the one I've actually done), since they are the main drugs with that substance.

I only know one person who does drugs and it's just DPH.

I've experimented with, and had fun with, drugs in the past including Weed, Shrooms, and once on separate occasions, Cocaine, Morphine, and Meth (yuck). I continue to lightly drink and smoke the occasional cigarette.

Drugs, like anything else, are something that people have to personally decide their stance on. At the same time, people should be educated about the dangers of drugs and the reponsibility that needs to go along with using them. I never took drugs irresponsibly or without full awareness of what I was doing and the potential consequences. As a result, I've never come to harm or found myself in NEED of drugs at any point in my life.

It sucks when you know people who have been doing these things irresponsibly.
