Drug quotes page 2
I don't do drugs. If I want a rush I just stand up when I'm not expecting it.
I've had cocaine, but I don't like it. The Beatles had lots of it in their day, but it's a dumb

goes on getting the next fix. Really, I find caffeine is easier to deal with.
I don't do drugs. I am drugs.
I loved when Bush came out and said, "We are losing the war against drugs." You know
that implies? There's a war being fought, and the people on drugs are winning it.
Reality is just a crutch for people who can't handle drugs.
I used to smoke marijuana. But I'll tell you something: I would only smoke it in the late
evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening - or the
mid-evening. Just the early evening, mid-evening and late evening. Occasionally, early
afternoon, early mid-afternoon, or perhaps the late-midafternoon. Oh, sometimes the
early-mid-late-early morning... But never at dusk! Never at dusk, I would never do that.
One reason I don't drink is that I want to know when I am having a good time.
That's all drugs and alcohol do, they cut off your emotions in the end.
Whatever your woman is into, you better be into. Whatever your man is into, you better be
into. Your partner into church, you better be into church. Your man or woman a crackhead,
you better be a crackhead. Otherwise it just won't work.
Despair is a narcotic. It lulls the mind into indifference.
The basic thing nobody asks is why do people take drugs of any sort? Why do we have these
accessories to normal living to live? I mean, is there something wrong with society that's
making us so pressurized, that we cannot live without guarding ourselves against it?
I'm a tidy sort of bloke. I don't like chaos. I kept records in the record rack, tea in the tea

You never see a positive drug story on the news. They always have the same LSD story.
You've all seen it: "Today a young man on acid… thought he could fly… jumped out of a
building… what a tragedy!" What a dick. He's an idiot. If he thought he could fly, why didn't
he take off from the ground first? Check it out? You don't see geese lined up to catch
elevators to fly south; they fly from the fucking ground. He's an idiot. He's dead. Good! We
lost a moron? Fucking celebrate! There's one less moron in the world.
When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.
Fame was like a drug. But what was even more like a drug were the drugs.
I'm glad mushrooms are against the law, because I took them one time, and you know what
happened to me? I laid in a field of green grass for four hours going, "My God! I love
everything." Yeah. Now, if that isn't a hazard to our country… how are we gonna keep
building nuclear weapons, you know what I mean? What's gonna happen to the arms industry
when we realize that we're all one?
I drink to make other people more interesting.
The smoke from burning marijuana contains many more cancer-causing substances than
tobacco. And if that isn't enough it leads to bronchitis and emphysema. If adults want to

four million youngsters know what they are risking.
I love golf now. But it's more addictive than cocaine.
I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and
long-term happiness to our lives. I'm not talking about the short-term gratification of pleasures
like sex, drugs or gambling, though I'm not knocking them, but something that will bring true
and lasting happiness. The kind that sticks.
It's not called cocaine any more. It's now referred to as "Crack Classic."
Television, radio, and all the sources of amusement and information that surround us in our
daily lives are also artificial props. They can give us the impression that our minds are active,
because we are required to react to stimuli from the outside. But the power of those external
stimuli to keep us going is limited. They are like drugs. We grow used to them, and we
continuously need more and more of them. Eventually, they have little or no effect.
I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me.
Hunter S. Thompson
Under the pressure of the cares and sorrows of our mortal condition, men have at all times,
and in all countries, called in some physical aid to their moral consolations - wine, beer,
opium, brandy, or tobacco.
Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for
the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for
stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
P. J. O'Rourke
This diary is my kief, hashish and opium pipe. This is my drug and my vice.
I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has
not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has
been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of
insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.
Edgar Allan Poe
A drug is not bad. A drug is a chemical compound. The problem comes in when people who
take drugs treat them like a license to behave like an asshole.
