Over the years, I have availed myself of opportunites to try a wide variety of drugs, illegal and legal. Most of these experiences were undertaken with no guidance whatsoever, exposing me to great risk of injury, bad trips, or ineffective doses.
I propose that experienced folks such as myself
form a Board of Intoxicology, charged with certifying Intoxicologists. These folks will know exactly how much peyote is required for full visual effects, without inducing nausea. Or what kind of environment best fits a mushroom trip.
Without professional self-regulation, druggies' hope of legalization is just a pipe dream.
[[OK, so I just happen to have a fancy for the word "intoxicologist," which I believe I coined (though I may be wrong - please provide prior art).]]
All this probably looks great with java enabled. [reensure, Dec 27 2001]

||I just don't see how people have the spare time to try any type of drugs (other than pain killers for when you have too many stalls to clean and horses to ride)....
||I find the only time I even think about alcohol is when I'm depressed....and, that being a dangerous thing, I just go do more work until I'm not in the mood or too tired to think about drinking anything other than a Mountain Dew.....
||Peter, you are so right of course as always - however I think younger people may listen to what qb and his friends have to say ; as he has more street cred. than the government or various health agencies etc.
||When you attend a party this holiday season, don't assume the drinks are free. Ask, and ask often.
||Try the www. There're a few sites out there dedicated to this very area of endeavor. I used to have one on my "favorites" list, but then I got afraid...
||Concomitant with this noble endeavour, we should create
a drug combination matrix. I myself have tried almost
every drug and many binary combinations thereof. If you
look at the discussion re: Technology Diffusion Matrix,
according to the wise gentleman from the PTO, some of
these combinations could be patentable. There is money
to be made here, my friends.
||When I grow up, I want to be a Certified Public Intoxicologist.
