Anyone who tries to ban caffeine will be killed by me.

 

I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink coffee.

I'll moderate the upcoming Forty vs. Ghost bout, maybe even quell it:

Knives and paint have uses other than self-harm and getting high. Distilled whiskey, not as much, connosseurs excepted.

Marijuana plants on the other hand can be used for 8 million legitimate uses including making rope.

You're probably better off.  Caffeine withdrawal is REALLY bad.  

I gave up after 1 day and back to coffee it is.

"Kids are different today"
I hear ev'ry mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

Doctor please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old

"Life's just much too hard today"
I hear ev'ry mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way, through your busy dying day

 I believe "mothers  little helper " came from a doctor, many of  the current drug problems started at the doctors office NOT  just on street corners from shady creeps. Over prescribing raked in millions and killed or led many to the dark side. YES  I value doctors, most not all...

Michael Jackson's drug overdose was administered by a supposed doctor. 

Propofol for sleep! That's what they use to put you under for major surgery!

A fairly unique approach to treating insomnia.

Anti-depressants which, if you stop taking them suddenly, will drive you into a depression so deep -  you might intentionally OD on something else.  And some people will blame the gun, and not the big, fat, rich pharma-billionaire.

'Big Pharma' is supposed to be able to rely on the doctors to dispense medications responsibly.   

The prescription pad Dr Murray used is supposed to be really hard to get a hold of.  At least here in New York it is.   The prescriptions are numbered and registered to a specific doctor.   

For killing one of the most famous musicians of all time, Dr Murray served two years of a four-year prison sentence.

Peace to all who's struggling with it.  I got a nephew who got messed up with heroin, now he has a baby, no license, new job every month and a crack whore girl who's the mother of the baby.   So, good luck to all, addiction sucks.

Well that's one opinion.  I have mine too.  How about this then:

Alcohol is the approved drug of choice.   Why?  Seems like a lot of people die from using alcohol.  It's just another drug, right?  Do you support banning alcohol?  We tried that once in the US.  It was a huge success.

I work as a therapist and this statistic is absolutely right. However, nowadays everyone can get a chance to overcome abuse. For years of work I have had a lot of patients and I had period in my life, when I was using drugs, but my counselor helped me to become myself again.
