Taking Drugs Until You Fall Asleep Last summer, we were talking to our buddy Nick Kilroy about drugs and music and music and drugs, like always. He said he was getting a load of different drugs in for that weekend. Nutso synthetic drugs like 2CB and 5 MEO DMT. So we said, well why don’t you write down what happens to you when you take each one and then we can maybe use it for an article or something. Nick agreed. This is what happened:
We’ve all got dealers we like to call “our guys,” but aside from their numbers, general delivery hours, and where they usually are at 1:30 AM Saturday morning, how much do we really know about them? I was introduced to my current guy through a mutual friend. I’ve been calling him for over a year and he’s always been reliable as well as super friendly, so I figured maybe he would actually let me sit down with him and get acquainted. It probably helped that I told him I’d double my usual purchase. Vice: How’s it going? Coke Guy: It’s going all right, taking it easy.
Pop quiz: Which European country has the most liberal drug laws? (Hint: It's not the Netherlands.) Although its capital is notorious among stoners and college kids for marijuana haze–filled "coffee shops," Holland has never actually legalized cannabis — the Dutch simply don't enforce their laws against the shops. The correct answer is Portugal, which in 2001 became the first European country to officially abolish all criminal penalties for personal possession of drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. At the recommendation of a national commission charged with addressing Portugal's drug problem, jail time was replaced with the offer of therapy.
Hadoken-ing: Real-Life Street Fighters Hadoken-ing is a trend from Japan where kids reenact scenes from 'Street Fighter' in photos.

Corpse Brides and Forced Abortions: How China's One-Child Policy Is Still Ruining Lives China's one-child policy has created a long list of horrors that, besides child trafficking, includes infanticide, infant abandonment, and forced abortions, all used by families desperate to meet the set child quotas.

Pen Pals Inmates Love Lawsuits A prisoner named Kim Millbrook won a Supreme Court case with a handwritten petition, which is impressive.
The primary effects sought by those using cannabis recreationally are euphoria, relaxation, and changes in perception. Effects vary depending on dosage, with effects at low doses including a sense of well-being, mild enhancement of senses (smell, taste, hearing), subtle changes in thought and expression, talkativeness, giggling, increased appreciation of music, increased appetite, and mild closed-eye visuals. At higher doses, sense of time is altered, attention span and memory are frequently affected, and thought processes and mental perception may be significantly altered.
As Californians consider whether or not to vote on the legalization of marijuana this November, a study conducted at a Johns Hopkins University lab is now launching a look into the potential health and wellness benefits of illegal mushrooms, too. A study participant who tried these so-called "magic mushrooms" left her experience with insight that may now provide a scientific explanation of the existence of hippies: ...a business consultant named Dede Osborn took a psychedelic drug as part of a research project.
Alcohol affects individuals differently. Your blood alcohol level may be affected by your age, gender, physical condition, amount of food consumed and any drugs or medication. In addition, different drinks may contain different amounts of alcohol, so it's important to know how much and the concentration of alcohol you consume. For purposes of this guide, "one drink" is equal to 1.25 oz. of 80 proof liquor, 12 oz. of regular beer, or 5 oz. of table wine. A woman drinking an equal amount of alcohol in the same period of time as a man of an equivalent weight may have a higher blood alcohol level than that man.
