This is total BS. As if doing any particular drug, in and of itself, is necessarily going to do harm to another, or that there are no other 'vehicles' that are a part of the current human civilization construct, that can't equally be seen as potential risks in the hands of 'some' individuals or groups. It's not the vehicle itself that effects another, it's the specific individual/group that wields it's potential that is responsible.
Automobiles can do it!
Power plants can do it!
Prescription drugs can do it!
Satellites can do it!
Aircraft can do it!
Virus and bacteria carrying can do it!
Damns can do it!
Pesticides and herbicides can do it!
Petrochemicals can do it!
Second hand smoke can do it!
The industrial revolution has done it!
Nuclear weapons surely have and can do it!
and the list goes on and on and on, of those things that can potentially harm one in the hands of another.
And we can argue what is and is not acceptable all day long, but what one decides is acceptable in the end, is that which they have a vested interest in, for their own selfish gain. PERIOD!!!!
Life is inherently dangerous in and of itself for us feeble fleshies! Stop telling people what they can't do that may, possibly get away from them, while you yourself sanctify those things that can get away from you and cause harm to others.
In the end I shall be there dying, while you look onward, or you may take no notice at all, and so I'll be damned if you'll tell me what I can do with my own body, as if you could possibly know the answer of why we are here, and the truths and secrets of the universe, and therefore speak for it! This life is for each of us to decide independently, and absolutely, the only thing we truly owe one another, is to LEAVE EACH OTHER ALONE, so as to pursue our own meaning of our finite life!
And to you people that fear death to such a degree, that you try and cheat it at all costs, even at the expense of another, I say: "You fools, you'll not get out of here alive, no matter what you do! So suck it up, and be accountable for your own life, cowards!"
