    I've tried marijuana and it was much better than alcohol in my opinion. What about you guys?

    Adderall! But I really have adhd so its not as cool as when everyone else uses it, actully makes me calm/slightly sleepy... I was diagnosed a couple of years ago, has changed my life 1000%, so if you've always thought you might have it (or your parents refused to agree with a medical professional that you might have adhd), please see a doctor.

    I smoke marijuana often (eat it and vape when I can)
    I've tried Mushrooms once and I didn't see or hear anything weird, but it felt nice and I was a little giggly
    I've tried Ritalin, Adderal, and Vyvanse all once or twice. I "liked" Vyvanse more, but wasn't really a fan of any of them. Made me feel twitchy and it made me feel even more restless then normal
    I wouldn't really recommend anything, but marijuana/pot/cannabis to people
    Edit: I also drink, but I need to drink a lot to feel anything so I generally don't for that regularly

    not tried but i want to try hemp as a mood stablizer but for that i must get off some medicine that is known to interact with CBD the main reason i want off those RX's is because i fear their doing damage to my body Liver emzymes are elevated which could lead to liver damage if left untreated my ex smokes Pot for her epilepsy that's what got me thinking of trying canabis or at least CBD as an alternitive to the antipsychotics I'm on (I'm bi polar) never hurts to try i guess

    Alcohol is my drug of choice. Edibles are okay on occasion.

    "i want off those RX's" Don't just suddenly stop your meds, talk to your doctor, I'd look more into some scientific studies on if cbd works, I've heard that some "work" because they actually contain thc ("accidentally"). Marijuana itself, it seems is safe, IF you are over 25, as there have been some studies showing that use before that age (when the brain has finished maturing) can stunt brain growth, but after 25 as long as you only do it here and there, seems fine.

    Not trying to scare anyone who has used marijuana, I'm sure as long as you don't use it too much, it probably hasn't really affected you.

    MJ
    shrooms
    LSD

    Enjoyed all the above. The psychedelics occasionally for about 6 years. The MJ, pretty regular for about 14 years, but with a hard 2 year break while I was living overseas '91-'93. I quit all that at about 30yo though, when life got real ... serious job, marriage, kid(s). Maybe when I retire I'll start smoking weed again, when I don't have to go to a job anymore. That is, if it's legal where I live then.


    Cocaine - Tried it once, didn't see the point. Maybe I just didn't have enough money to get there. But that's ok.


    Alcohol - Mostly beer when I was in my 20's, and lots of it. I mean lots of it. Probably the thing I'd change if I could. Other than legal risk of being arrested for other stuff, alcohol probably put me at most risk back then. Health, and driving after drinking. Yeah, I regret it, but I did it a number of times in college. Back in the 80's it was wasn't quite the big deal it is now. There wasn't any "MADD" and cops in a college town would just make you walk home if they did pull you over. Anyway, I never drink heavily anymore, and rarely drink beer. I do enjoy some Scotch or Bourbon on a Friday/Sat evening, but I never drink enough to get drunk. Warm, yes. Drunk, no.

    That's it. I never messed with "lab made" stuff like crack or meth. Had a chance once to do MDMA when it was first going around (80's), a girl asked me if I wanted to with her and a few other people. I had no idea yet what that kind of invitation more or less meant, probably missed out on some mud for my turtle there. Oh well.

    I prefer Alcohol (moderation, of course) because it is much healthier than Marijuana. Surely, marijuana is good for you (not to smoking it, mind you.. its not health just like cigarettes anyway).

    what do you define as "better" ?
    it probably depends what you expect.

    If losing your mind or seeing visions is what you expect, then it's not what I'd want and wouldn't find it "better".
    I wouldn't stand "losing control" at all, I need to always be in control and not feel I missed time.

    I guess my drug is also video games and TV series, and food, and knowledge :D

    Never ever tried any drugs well okay alcohol but just a little bit and mainly because it was impossible no to in the military (had to go, luckily I got out as a psychopath after 2 month) as they put in alcohol into my bottle whenever I left it unattendet which I did a few times at the beginning as I was to trusting.

    I have only used MJ, mostly just in the shape of edibles. Might wanna try shrooms sometime, but that's about it.

    I disagree wholeheartedly and strongly believe that marijuana is much healthier than alcohol. You ever seen any deaths from marijuana?
    Have you even smoked marijuana? It’s not like alcohol where you loose control nor do you see visions or loose your mind.

    I had smoked marijuana 4 or 5 time a loooong time ago. Never again.. Smoke still travel to my lung but I got high. Cigarette is worse than Marijuana, yes.

    However, smoke travel to the lung and its not healthy, period. Marijuana pills or made it with juice or in the brownie is healthy.
