Do drugs make you smarter?

  1. im about to smoke a small bowl of marijuana before I go to Macy's to fix those jeans I was talking about, I really like them (the jeans)
     
  2. "Shake what you got in them jeans"
     
  3. Drugs DO make you smarter. That's why Gemballa, an heroin addict, routinely owns your ass.
     
  4. The obvious answer is no. But if you've smoked some pot and you watch a movie or listen to music, you'll notice more special things. Music sounds better and food tastes better.
     
  5. The worst thing about drugs - even and especially pot - is that they often become a lifestyle. If the drugs themselves don't give you brain damage hanging out with stoners and doing stonerish sh*t will surely stunt your development...

    *My bro was dissing me for smoking cigs and not weed and basically the speech I gave him and his stoner buddy is that marijuana is a recreational activity bordering on a lifestyle, cigarettes are just a momentary diversion... and judging from the stoners I know my time, energy, and resources are better invested in other things <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  6. just because "whoa, i can feel myself thinking harder about simple everyday things like moving my hands and talking to people" when you're mentally affected by a controlled substance, doesnt mean you're smarter.
     
  7. i think some drugs (shrooms) can give you insight that being sober will never be able to offer. But i also think that it depends on the person.
     
  8. Also, drinking alcohol makes you look better.

    edit: Also, this thread is stupid.
     
  9. no, they just enhance your personality. which is bad news if youre an arsehole to begin with.
     
  10. Maybe ritalin.
     
  11. I don't think they make you think smarter more than they make you think differently. When you're high or something you talk about things you would never talk about sober. Like just the other day me and my friends were talking about like maybe the whole world around you is just a screen and you're walking on a treadmill. We talk about black holes and time travel and see the world in a much more beautiful way which is why people will sometimes take them when they have issues.
     
  12. Crazy people think about things differently, too. Thinking about things differently isn't necessarily a good thing.
     
  13. I wouldnt call it smarter, Id say more experienced/more knowledge, but I dont consider that as smarts.
     
  14. Shrooms and weed do.
     
  15. Lol taking drugs because you have issues is bad mmkay.
     
  16. Physical substances can't make you smarter.
     
  17. When ever I have strong drugs in hospital I find it harder to think and remember things for a week or 2, I hate it.
     
  18. I get more concentrated on eating food when I smoke pot
     
  19. Haha seriously, so true. If I have the munchies and I'm really high, all of my concentration is going into eating. I don't get the munchies anymore though, it sucks.
     
  20. Gemballa isn't a heroin addict.
     
  21. Drugs are bad
     
  22. yeh ok guidance counselor / American congressman

     
  23. the munchies stop existing when your always hungry
     
  24. Lol.
