Don't blame the drugs for the person's irresponsibility.

Any drug can be used responsibly; it is the people who abuse drugs that make the people who use them look bad.

That is true. But I still have a negative outlook towards drugs, and I think he is an idiot. He appartently went to rehab which I respect his actions, but then picks up religion. Probably he will abandon religion and pick up right where he left off - partying. Ugh.

Rehab is the funniest damn thing I've ever heard of. "Don't do drugs, but here we're going to give you this drug that will help you wean off of that "bad" drug." It's amazing to me how people will divert their own addictions to something else, IF they think something else might help them. Hell, my father is a "dry" alcoholic, and an ex smoker. You should see his addictions now! I can't tell you how many times I've told him he's needed a smoke and some damn booze because of how nasty he is now.

It's the same thing with religion. Take responsibility for your actions, but "God helped me do it" or "God's hand was on them". WTF? Either they took responsibility or the person didn't? Which is it?

Enough derailment on my part. I no longer take part in the drug scene, as I now have too many responsibilities to go wasting my hard earned money on exploring the "inner depths of my mind". But when I did, the drugs weren't near as contaminated as they are now. Even in the last 10 years they've changed immensely with all the "cutting" of the products and the fertilizers and hy-bred pot that's floating around out there. Pot was still just pot 20 years ago unless you bought "skunk" or "creeper" weed on purpose, and acid was just that. Anything that went "up" was preferred as appose to a downer. I only tired mushrooms once (couldn't stand the way they tasted) but enjoyed a few trips here and there from paper. The funniest part was chewing up rolls of Vitamin C all week long to get the "most out of our trip" and waking up at 4 am in the back of my truck after smoking a little pot to come down from the last bit of our trip! Oh what it was to be 19 and laying out under the stars too stoned to do much else but hang out and talk!!

Now though, a dime bag of pot is something like $45 around here, from what I've heard, and an 8 ball is no longer $80 but closer to $150 depending on the cut. Acid use to be a few dollars a hit for the good stuff (Blue Unicorn was really a TRIP). Now it's something like $10 a hit, and that's just the plain white blotter that usually travels with the Dead Heads (some of the crappiest I tried back in the day). Plus there are drug busts going on in our area at least once a month, if not more. I'm not about to spend that kind of money on a couple of hours of fun when I can go out and buy something that will last me much longer (like a new computer, air brush or vehicle) that will be productive in some way. I am not fond, at all, of the possibly of losing my job, having a permanent record, and having to dish out money for things like lawyers, court fees, etc., because I was stupid enough to play "in" the drug scene of today. I like knowing I can be bonded for a job, and can work just about anywhere because I will pass a drug test no matter what day it is.

Alcohol is legal, and there are enough "speed" type products on the market legally. I can get the same affects out of things that are legal, and if I want hallucinations, well, all I have to do is fall asleep and enjoy a dream during a good nights sleep or eat the worm that's in the bottom of a Tequila bottle. I have enough running through my head that I don't need to add to it through doing illegal drugs. Shit, I can go to the local Urgent Care and get a shot of Toradol for my migraines for about the same cost as 1/2 an 8 ball, and still get in some great hallucinations just before zonking out into a dream land loaded with imagination. ;\)

I always thought it was a tribute to San Francisco's Director of Public Health during the Hashbury era, Dr. Ellis D. Sox.

John Lennon said that it was simply from an incident he had with Julian Lennon as a child. Julian was drawing a picture and seeing the world through the eyes of a 5 year old. John asked, "What are you drawing?"

The answer was "Lucy (his friend and schoolmate) in the sky with diamonds."

The Lucy in Julian's drawing was reported to have died just recently.

Lucy is short for Lucifer. Lucifer is the planet Venus shining in the early eastern morning sky with the other stars shinig around her like diamonds. On the front cover of the Seargent Pepper album the Beatles are standing there posing with cardboard cutouts of famous people two of which are well known Satanists Marilyn Monroe and Aleiser Crowly.

Well... you COULD come up with a thousand new agey, fluffy myths. Or, here's a concept... listen to Julian Lennon, the man involved. He makes it clear in the 1st minute and a half.

This reminds me of something I read recently, it slips my mind at the moment where I was reading this, but this guy went on a giant rant about how drug use and abuse was more of a symptom of an underlying problem, rather than a problem in and of its self. It made allot of sense to me and I felt like posting for once.
