Over the Counter Drug Cafe

Let's all take legal drugs in a friendly, public place.

Sometimes you want to go where everyone drinks caffeine or alcohol, the world's most popular legal drugs. But maybe you're feeling social but you're in the mood for some valerian to calm you down, or a little kava kava. Where do you go? Perhaps there could be a nice beverage bar that served beverages with legal herbal drugs or over the counter products (e.g. bronchial asthma pills which can operate like a mild amphetamine or melatonin which can make you drowsy). There are lots of legal psychoactive drugs out there, so why not try something different? Of course, they'd all have to be mild in nature or the place would surely suffer untold calamities.

Since everyone is so particular about their favorite coffee drinks and cocktails and beers-of-choice, imagine what fun they'd have advertising their identity through a green-tea/ valerian speedball smoothie? Or an antihistamine-n-soda? Nyquil shooters? So many chances for self-discovery.

       I used to work at a vegetarian restaurant that's specialty was drinks with that kind of stuff. My boss told me he got a buzz off of knocking back wheatgrass shots.

       Baked - these are called "smart- bars" and are available in most of the civilized world.

       Isn't starting an idea description with "Let's all" just asking for trouble?

       Hmmm... Think of the Opium Dens of Victorian times. Also, the LSD Cool-Aid parties... (One bowl for the Tigers, one for the pussycats).   

       Admittedly, they would typically provide only one kind of drug, so the idea of a place which offers all the good legal stuff is new. However, aren't most of these pharmacy only?

       bravo. mr lama has obviously had a few halfbaked beans in his head for some unknown period of time. these seem to be just the ones that needed to be sprung. i would like to see some freshly composed.

       I once had a very amusing conversation with a snobby teen working at a healthfood store about kava. It mostly consisted of my telling stories about kava and her saying "you aren't supposed to take that much." I wish we had a smart bar around here, but i live in the states.
