"Salvia" PoW, not saliva :D
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Funny, I never even heard of this drug before. However it sounds kinda like LSD so... I say ban it.

Ryan, why did you even TAKE that name if you espouse none of the values it carries?

Don't ban drugs. Let people choose what they do with their own bodies. If they want to poison themselves, so be it.

According to the article the drug causes people to act abnormally and may lead to depression. The ban seems logical to me.

Only if you believe that you should take away people's right to do with their life as they see fit...

Okay, you go make Sarin gas and build a nuclear bomb then.

See how easy that argument is to dismantle? I'm surprised you're still trying to make it after it's been pointed out to you in other threads.

Do you believe in banning alcohol?

I agree with Daxx and Pat.

And maybe the ban might be good, they said it's only in that state right?
If so what's the big deal?

Mother: By the way I'm your mother

Wait, what are you agreeing with me for? I don't meant to suggest that I'm in favour of the ban, since I don't know anything about Salvia beyond a very basic knowledge that it exists and it is (or was) one of those "legal high" things. I'm not nearly informed enough to make a judgement.

Hands up those who believe this confirms that Axelgear goes out of his way to pick arguments?

I mean "I don't see why a government body should ban a hallucinogenic drug that can alter peoples behavior, people should be allowed to do what they want" - Are you serious?
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

Oh, sorry for the confusion.

I agreed with the banning opinion of Pat, and the AxelGear thing with you.
Just to clarify, sorry about that and no offense AxelGear.

Actually, Daxx, aside from the natural holes there, we're not talking about weapons, we're talking about substances for personal use and sale. Why allow alcohol and cigarettes but not these things? They're all mind-altering substances.

And, yes, I am Werechicken. Very serious. If I want to take a knife now and cut off my own finger, it's my life, my choice, my body, and my risk. You don't have a say in what I do with any of those things unless it impacts on you.
