To clarify, there is NOTHING funny/entertaining/charming/badass about substance abuse or drug addiction — it's a disease that ruins people's lives and the lives of those who love them. If y'all think we're trying to make light of that, you're sorely mistaken. On the flip-side however, drugs can be pretty freakin' funny (in the right context). That's where these "don't do drugs" stories come into the picture.
Reddit user, Solid2222 posed the following question and again, while a lot of the answers were seriously warning people of the dangers in doing drugs, some of the answers were just too good not to share:
"What's your best "never do drugs" story?"
We compiled our favorites in the video below and remember, drugs are bad, mkay?
A decent amount of the responses deal with hallucinogens like LSD or mushrooms. Funny enough, mushrooms are the safest drug y'all can do! As per The Guardian:
"Of the more than 12,000 people who reported taking psilocybin hallucinogenic mushrooms in 2016, just 0.2% of them said they needed emergency medical treatment – a rate at least five times lower than that for MDMA, LSD and cocaine."
Despite the statistics, free will is free will and people are going to snort and smoke whatever they please. That's just how the cookie crumbles. We'll go ahead and close with one final tale:
"Acid is great... Having said that, acid on a family holiday and in water was just never going to end well."
Seems entirely logical, we'll be sure to remember that for our next family vacation.
