That's a different view... I'll give you that. But since I have seen wayyy to many friends, family, and class mates ruin themselves with drugs... I would not condone them. Not for any reason. While a few may gain something benificial, drugs usually lead to the hampering of mind, motovation, and many other things; this can mean that you slide from a high awareness, which you were looking for, to petty fasicination with things like tracers, hallucinations, and any number of side effects. Of course, this is my opnion but everyone to their own. Heck, most would not condone alchohol... so why condon something which may also prove damaging. A Buddhist who uses a drug when with a Lama... and for spiritual reasons may be safe so long as they are aware of possible problems and that the Lama their self is acting for real advancement and not excussing their action, ie The Tantric sexual yoga I've heard of. Anyway, I really hope that I didn't slight those that have tried certain drugs for such a purpose... I do not
inetend to hurt your feelings. Metta.
