Is non-toxic the same thing as harmless?
Toxic means poisonous or something like it. Can't something be harmful even if it is not poisonous? I take a substance that is not a poison, but causes me to shot myself. It's non-toxic, but it is demonstatably harmful. Yes, no?
The term non-toxic when referring to drugs means that they cause no damage to any part of the human body.
They also do not cause indrect damage such as Bruxism (teeth grinding)
Aspirin is toxic, so is ibuprofen, and tylenol (acetaminophen).
Prozac is toxic as are all SSRI's...
There are MANY psychoactive compounds that are 100% completely harmless.
I will compile a list of some later when I have time. LSAT is my first priority
My whole point in all of this is that many say drugs should be illegal because they cause harm directly or indirectly or both... then when I come up with compounds that are 100% non-toxic people sitll have a problem with these drugs being legal. This means that the whole "harm" issue is really a facade protecting some other "reason" for not wanting drugs to be legal.
Jeffjoe, can you please explain how a substance can FORCE you to shoot yourself ?
Even some foods cause unwanted psychological effects (namely ones packed with sugar)
If you want I could extend non-toxic so that substances that cause problems like aggression are also excluded...I would still have no problem coming up with that list (and I will later)
