Jesus was worried about the drug epidemic plaguing the world. In an effort to solve this dilemma, he decided that a few apostles would return to earth and fetch a sample of each drug, so they could understand what these substances did...

Two days after the operation is implemented, the disciples begin to return.

Jesus, waiting at the door, lets in each disciple.

"Who is it?"

"It's Mark."

Jesus opens the door.

"What did you bring Mark?"

"Marijuana from Colombia."

"Very well son, come in."

Another soft knock is heard.

"Who is it?"

"It's Matthew."

Jesus opens the door.

"What did you bring Matthew?"

"Cocaine from Bolivia."

"Very well son, come in."

At the next knock Jesus asks, "Who is it?"

"It's John."

Jesus opens the door.

"What did you bring John?"

"Crack from New York."

"Very well son, come in."

Someone starts pounding on the door.

"Who is it?"

"It's Judas!"

Jesus opens the door.

"What did you bring Judas?"

"FREEZE! THIS IS THE DEA!"

You know what's weird af to think about? Sleep is basically being high to the point of breakthrough (sorta). You forget who you are, where you are, and never remember everything that happened after. If you could make someone 'dream' instantly with a pill it'd be considered a crazy substance.

Hell you can even have "bad trips". Really anything at all can happen. Think about it.

I know it's not the same as taking a drug, but the comparison is literally right there. The only difference is that your brain does it on it own every night. We can learn so much about ourselves by thinking about our dreams differently. Or maybe that would just be reading into things, idk.

I'm a substance user not abuser

Yeah I do drugs. I do all kinds of drugs. Uppers, downers, psychedelics, Herbal, man made, "dirty", and "clean". I grew up with 2 parents who have been drug addicts in there life and around drugs my whole life. So was this inevitable? And if so is there anything I can do?.

Why yes. Theres something we can all do. EDUCATE OURSELVES. With the internet at our fingertips we have the power to look up any drug we want to do and try to find as much info on the substance and precautions before taking it. And then right after go the Amazon and buy a testing kit.

I've seen too many people take drugs that were laced or take drugs that were to strong and freak out cause they have no idea what the drug is. In the 2 years of drug experimentation I've gone from smoking weed all the way 2 smoking dmt and trying suboxone and ketamine. I mean shit I went so hard into the experimentation I said fuck it and tried dmt before dxm, Nitrous before nicotine. But I made sure to look up and educate myself on

How come whenever a drug is derived directly from a plant a lot of people immediately dismiss it as a potentially dangerous substance

Take the weed community for instance. Although weed is a cool drug that I enjoy, a lot of the people I smoke with think that it is superior to literally any other substance. You drink? disgusting. Vaping nicotine? what a hopeless addict. They're always down to talk about the health risks of literally every drug EXCEPT their beloved THC.

We can see this happening with Kratom too which is a literal opioid. "it's just a plant man" yeah ok and the poppy plant was also just a plant. Tobacco is just a plant too. Cocaine came from the coca plant. The fuck is this. Anything that changes perception or produces a high is a drug. I'm not lecturing you, the reader, I'm just ranting.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk

Quitting substance abuse

Not sure if this goes here or not. But I have been addicted to a Legal substance that I don’t want to name because I don’t want to expose other to it, as I wish I hadn’t been...

For the last 1.5 years I’ve lied, stolen, and been using this substance for no real reason besides wanting to be high. I’ve wasted so much money and it turned me into a selfish monster.

I’m 3 days clean now and not ever looking back.

On September 12, 1993, the body of 27-year-old Sherri Pearson was found inside her Kendallville, Indiana home by firefighters. Someone had injected her with a β€œforeign substance,” and removed the smoke alarms batteries before setting her home on fire.

On September 12, 1993, at 4:30am, fire crews were dispatched to a house fire on Garden Street in Kendallville, Indiana. The home belonged to 27-year-old Sherri Pearson, a mother of two, who worked at a local factory. A neighbor of Sherri had seen smoke pouring from the homes’ widows and alerted police.

When firefighters arrived on scene they estimated the house had been smoldering for at least 45 minutes prior to their arrival. When they entered the home, they discovered Sherri dead on the floor of the living room, an apparent victim of smoke inhalation.

Sherri’s children fortunately were not home when the fire occurred. Chelsey age 1, and Derek age 3, were with their father, Michael, for the weekend at his parents house on the other side of town. Sherri and Michael had been separated for a few months, but according to friends and family, they were attempting to reconcile.

The fire had started in Sherri’s bedroom and was originally ruled as an accident due to faulty wiring. How

Over a decade later, Borderlands has little to no substance.

Obligatory: "I'm on mobile, sorry for the formatting"

TL;DR: I bought Borderlands on the hype train in 2009, still disappointed over a decade later. Yeesh.

Over a decade ago, when this game first released I was still fairly young. Young enough to ride the hype train like a dirt bike without a helmet. With my monthly gameinformer/xbox live subscription, every game "on the horizon" was a candidate to consume my entire life. I had the most fun with single player shooters, and even more so with open-world shooters. Games like Bioshock, Fallout 3/NV, Far Cry, all came through in the clutch to keep me going through schoolwork.

2009 was a big year for games I liked, and I had an open enough palette to consume anything. MW2 was kind of exploding, so along with games like Left 4 Dead and RE5 my live subscription was getting more use than it was during GoW/Halo 3 days. PvP and Co-op experiences were becoming more and more commonplace, and the more people I found, the more I put the single p

Milk is one of the nastiest and most overrated substances known to man

Ah yes, milk. Some thing that everyone loves. Kids love it. Teens love it. Adults love it. It’s perfect. And it’s healthy! No. Fuck that.

Milk has a strange bitter, yet bland taste. It’s hard for me to not feel sickened after a few sips. It had gotten so bad to the extent that I can’t really have cereal anymore. Milk just makes me that disgusted.

I just can’t with it. And people drink it by the fucking gallons. My psychotic brother downs a full glass of milk in less than a minute because... it tastes good? No. You’re psycho. I mean, bro, I love you. But you’re crazy.

And people think I’m crazy for not liking milk. No. Keep your cow/goat/almond/whatever breast milk to yourself. That shite’s not for me.

My brother and I use drugs in ritual settings (MJ, aya, psilocybin). Since starting our ritual he has overcome his addiction to heroin and crack and got off methadone treatment that he was on for 7 years. We want people to know the potential of these substances when used in the right setting.

We started this group ritual 7 weeks ago. In this first week, my brother was in active addiction, using heroin everyday. He had struggled with addiction for 10 years, on methadone replacement therapy for the past 7, and still using crack and heroin. After our second group session, he overdosed and nearly died. He checked himself into rehab voluntarily that week and decided to stop taking his methadone.

Today he is clean, he's been off methadone for 34 days, and hasn't used crack or heroin. He credits the group with providing him the structure he needs to succeed. Some people may think its crazy for an addict to use drugs to help overcome their destructive behaviors. But his story is a testament to the fact that drugs are just tools. The result depends on how we use them. Thank you for reading.

We created a podcast if anyone is interested in hearing more about the structure. [https://anchor.fm/ryan-van-tuinen4/episodes/Episode-3---Gratitude-eeu2du](https://anchor.fm/ryan-van-tuine

So, I come a not so great family on both sides. My dad's side was a crazy mix of super conservative Catholics and weird superstitious/voodoo/occult believers who also believed in alternative health.

My aunt on that side of the family did this back businesses out of one of her spare rooms offering alternative medicine. I don't know what it was, I was too young to fully understand. But people with like bone and pain issues would come to her for help, I guess?

One day without prompt she sat me down at the dining table and put a crystal teacup in front of me. Inside it was filled with a beige substance. It was thick. And it had weird chunks of color in it. Like yellows, reds, oranges, whites. To be honest, it looked like throw up.

Kratom makes other substances feel dirty

I posted the other day on here and didn’t realize you couldn’t reference other drugs or opiates so I’ll try my best to get my point across without doing so. I’ve been taking kratom daily for about 6 months it’s one of the only substances I’ve experienced that eliminate all social anxiety or underlying anxiety while keeping a positive and upbeat mood. I have been prescribed antidepressants and Xanax in my life for anxiety and depression. The Xanax just made me lethargic and drowsy. The antidepressants I were on didn’t have much of an effect and the withdrawals lasted weeks. I’ve only drank alcohol 3 times while I’ve been on kratom and all 3 times the hungover effect was amplified and I felt so gross. It just feels so dirty compared to kratom. Some would say yeah of course opi’s feel more clean than alcohol. Well I had some pain pills and took a few pills and it just felt gross. My anxiety was reduced but the euphoric effect felt strange and not as enjoyable. These are just my experience

And what exactly, in addiction to drug-related violence, makes it so difficult for especially Central America, especially the Northern Triangle (El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala) (as U.S. Democratic candidate Joe Biden's platform refers to it), to improve itself? I was skimming through Biden's platform just out of curiosity and saw the he wants to invest ~$4 billion into the region to help out, but hasn't the U.S. but providing financial aid for several years already, with a lot of it just being stolen? I don't know what the situation is, or how LatAm communities organize themselves in case they essentially become forsaken by their own governments.

It's not the substance itself

This happened to me today.

I'm a full month without smoking. Today, I had to light something up and i caught the lighter. It was like meeting an old friend. The feeling of it in my hands, its weight... it just felt good. The weed didn't even took part on this sensation at all.

So it struck me. We are addicted to a substance? Yes. But the ritual itself takes a huge part on the addiction. It makes you feel you in the control (because its aways the same thing), and makes you feel you have some kind of company - the lighter, the pipe, the weed... all imaginary friends.

This mindset feels more reasonable for me. You're not fighting against an evil chemical that's imprisoning you. You fighting against habbits that you build for yourself. So all you gotta do is build another habbits.

I know it's hard, but changing a habbit for a habbit seems more achievable than changing a chemical for a habbit, right? At least for me. Hope this insight helps you somehow. Good journey my friends!

I cant stand people that talk so highly about certain substances

Title almost says it all, all the time I see people that for the most part are fine but then say something like β€œits just the plant teaching us what it knows”. Like... cmon dude. It just annoys me when people treat substances like religious beings or even just knowledgable things. Personally im set on the idea that psychedelics just change the way u think but by no means have some sort of strict result or discovery thats going to come out of using it. I wish people would just talk about them for what they are instead of making this whole community look delusional by treating a chemical substance like an ethereal god thats finally welcoming its child to β€˜reality’. Do people even read what they write...

sorry just needed to rant :/

edit: thanks for all the responses, the main reoccuring theme here is that firstly I need to stop giving a fuck but also secondly, I have now sorta realised that some people may refer to substances or realisations as some sorta irrational religious term as

On May 5th I will officially be 12 months sober off of meth (and many more substances), but anyway, I had the choice to pick up a pipe today and get high and I didn't.

I came so close to doing it. I was having so many conflicting emotions. I was even reaching out to all the friends I used to get high with. I honestly could say I was pretty fucking positive that it was going to happen and I was going to relapse, but I fucking didn't. I was able to push through those intense cravings and wait them out. I actually started having an anxiety attack about it and ended up smoking a cigarette which I haven't done in almost 6 months. So I relapsed on that, but eventually those cravings for Meth subsided and I pulled through. I really didn't think that was going to happen. I thought I was about to throw away almost a year of sobriety. I actually looked in the mirror at myself in my fucking eyes and said "I am so proud of you". Words I've never, ever said to myself before.

I really am so fucking proud of myself after going through that for the past several hours. That was so hard for me and I fucking did it. My eyes are watering right now. I was so afraid I

Taking psychoactive substances is a basic human right and should be treated as such.

I know that in the last months and years a lot of people turned their opinion towards legalizing Cannabis. However the collective knowledge about drugs or psychoactive substances seems to end here.

Many don't know about the fact, that there are even more harmless, yet illegal substances. Take for example LSD, Psylocibin, DMT or Iboga. No reported deaths, basically no risk of getting addicted, so quiet harmless compared to alcohol. Alkohol in generall is absolutly not less dangerous than Kokain or MDMA.

And why exactly are some psychoactive substances illegal? I don't harm others and if i want to take Heroin, Meth or alcohol until i die, I should have every right to do so. I can also eat myself to death with fast food (what a lot of Americans seem to do).

Many fear that the number of drug abusers and drug related deaths will rise when certain drugs are legal. This however is not the case in Portugal, which has decriminalised all drugs and therefore reduced HIV infections and drug rel

After battling substance abuse and addiction for years and years, I've finally out away my first $1000 toward my rainy day fund.

I've had a rough go of since I moved out on my own...about 8 years. I've battled alcohol and substance addiction, gone through so much in my life...didn't care about anything or anyone but myself, but I've finally put that behind me and reached a new milestone. I've successfully saved and out away my first $1000 toward my emergency fund. It's not much but I'm extremely proud of myself for finally changing..for finally finding enough purpose in my life to be motivated to do this. It feels SO good. I've came a long way you guys.

Is there anything canon regarding Dragonshards and smuggling, counterfeiting, and "cutting" the dust with other substances... If not, what are your ideas about that?

We're starting an Eberron campaign this weekend, with me GMing, and the first part of the campaign will be a reskinned Cottage on the Long Road (DMs Guild) and the first chapter of Dragon Heist, mainly because I'm running Dragonheist elsewhere and I wanted some sort of safety net while I learn the setting (we decided it about a week ago).

In the Cottage on the Long Road, the PCs encounter a Necromancer's lair, and I don't feel it makes thematic sense, so after a few hours research I'm swapping it out with a Boromar Clan smugglers' den to set the tone that organized crime is present in Sharn.

Which leads to the question of what they're smuggling... The first thing that comes up when you google "Eberron smuggling" is a thread talking about what goods could be smuggled, with Dragonshards being one of the first thing mentioned.

Dragonshard dust is like the type O- of spell components, which made me think there could be a market for counterfeit dragonshards, the dust itself, or actual d
