Knowing that it's not a highly addictive drug, and the immediate effects are only positive, would you try it JUST ONCE?



I've seen 75 year old dudes sitting in the shop chewing this stuff and they're all right. I don't think it's as harmful as wiki makes it out to be.

Quoting Future Hapa Mama[7 weeks]:" Nope because I'm against using drugs to make you "high". Only alcohol is okay in moderation once you reach the drinking age, IMO."


Why, because it's legal?
Alcohol is one of the worst drugs for you, legal or not.



OP, I can't say from this post whether I would try it or not. I would need to know side effects, effects of the drug and what it can do to my body.
I smoke pot regularly, other than that the only drugs I've tried are hash, and mushrooms when I was a teenager.

Probably not, just because even if I DID like the effects, it's not something I'd want to get in the habit of doing

Only when I'm in a lot of pain.... I don't care if other people do it. I just don't.

Hmm.. MAYBE just once. But I don't think I could keep it in my mouth for an hour.

I don't think you have to, lol. I used to see this one guy who would keep it in his mouth was seemed like that whole day. He would even drink while he was chewing it, smoke cigarettes, everything. You could probably just chew it for like 10 minutes and get the same effects.

Oral cancer only? Interesting. Any other long term health issues, or is that unknown?



If legal or in a country where use was prevalent/cultural? I'd probably try it. Not in the long-term, though... I don't want to f**k up my teeth too much.
