Yeah, i feel just like that. Im happy for everything i've learned and experienced with drugs. But i know that some of the things i did was on the edge, and i was about to fall 2 times, and still i got up on the horse and smashed it on the ass so i could run faster. But as you said, it was back in the days. And just by experimenting with drugs make you see allot of problems in the world that you would never have experienced otherwise in a normal life.
And one of the best memories i have from all of the drugs are all the afterglows, just sitting on a mountain and watching the sun set and thinking some really deep thoughts, or just trying to get back to who i am and what the hell this thing called gravity is. ^^
Yeah, i was really worried there for some time, but then i noticed the forum on the bottom of the page and i took 1 + 1 and it made 2. ^^ Stoners are stoners, you can take a stoner from japan and put him with an american stoner, they would get along just fine. Take a stoner from Sweden and put him with a stoner from Australia and the would get along. But yeah, stoners are stoners. :)
And yeah, school and education is really important. BUT, i do want to say this if someone is reading and thinking: not everything in school is right. If i had to teach a class something it would be critical thinking and to be logical as long as they can. If it sounds like bullshit, then it most of the times is bullshit. And everything you learn in school you can learn in the library or on the internet. The thing is that you need a paper on that you know it. So school is the governments way to knowing that you don't know to much or don't think to much. You know what you're supposed to know.
When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.
I REP you if you made a good point or made a really good post.
