Juul can kiss the biggest part of my Southern Butt. I agree with him 100% They threw this community under the bus and are nothing more than big tobacco. I’m sorry if you don’t agree, but that’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it. Much Love.
The Conga Line is long, swamp-diving for those big dollars before the Pillar of (Nicotine) Salts crumbles:
The mass “Taboo Appeal” literally generated and widely amplified by all these prohibitionist gesticulations is almost surely elevating (the relatively benign alkaloid known as) Nicotine to absurd levels of desirability (for the young, and young at heart). One’s latter days should not have to be spent hoarding “nuevo contraband”!
Studies report the “D.A.R.E.” programs to be no more efficacious than was Nancy Reagan’s Astrologer:
A meta-analysis in 2009 of 20 controlled studies by statisticians Wei Pan, then at the University of Cincinnati, and Haiyan Bai of the University of Central Florida revealed that teens enrolled in the program were just as likely to use drugs as were those who received no intervention. … Worse, D.A.R.E. programs might occasionally backfire when it comes to the use of milder substances, such as alcohol and cigarettes. … These scientific findings stand in stark contrast to the belief, held by scores of schoolteachers and parents, that D.A.R.E. works.
You crack me up.
Even though D.A.R.E was after my time, we all knew that is was designed for kids to NARK on their parents.
I say that not because of the info , I say it should be private bc right now we do t need anyine pointing a finger saying See they help kids vape or whatever…
I’m a huge conspiracy theorist … so yeah I kind of think Juul did this all on purpose … but then again I believe the Illuminati is real so take what I think with a grain of salt on that issue
That would be “before your time” instead ? Following up on the profitable legacy saga, I see that “Daren the Undercover Narc Officer Lion” has been branching out into “daring to” various sundry things these days:
Btw whatbare you guys and gals doi g awake right now ??? Arent you Eastern time ??? Thats 3am in the morning lol
Oh, ya, good point. I don’t know… I think I’ll just leave it up to a higher power.
LOL, I’m just waking up…
I’m bored to pieces but it’s only 2 in the morning in Bama LOL entertain me!
Its all good brother … The fact that I even have a thought like that cross my mind is sad in itself …
I just woke up to get something to drink lol and my phone was opened to the forum lol …No way can I hang around much longer , but I love ya girl
Well, Dare came after I graduated High School. When I would be over my friends house, who had kids in school, coming home with DARE stuff telling us they were DARE Cops or some such thing. I don’t know it stuck with me for some reason.
I guess I’ll have to watch youtube videos for entertainment … I should be in bed, I have a group of people coming over tomorrow
Lol that’s what I do when I can’t sleep…speaking of sleep I have to get back to it …Night Fam
I don’t think it needs moving I have said similar myself
Same here, puts me right to sleep.
My twins were 21 when I saw them trying those french cigarettes and I quickly switched them over to vape (aka the Vaping Crimson Girls) and neither of them vape or smoke any longer… hence the reason why we no longer do lives LOL
Right. No upper age limits at the Cerebral Internment Camps. I remember transit buses around here emblazoned all over with their candy ass logos (enough to creep-out any intelligent adult). All that can be found today on Google Images is police cars (in similar absurdity). Kind of boring. Standard Nazi regalia.
Have always thought that a counter-movement should have been started: D.U.H. “Drop the Utter Horseshit”
Dare was definitely part of my childhood in the early 90’s being in school, and it focused so heavily on ‘Say No’ instead of ‘Why you should say No’. Yeah, alot of uninformed people came out of school not knowing what was what. It was comparable to ‘Don’t have sex’ only they don’t actually tell you why. Only that it’s bad.
Our society seems to shrink from the idea of actually educating ourselves and others as to the benefits as well as side effects and potential physical dangers (or just psychological downsides) of the use of drugs - which are patented and manufactured only if they promise large profits - where many of which are far to vastly more physically dangerous than “demonized darlings”. Ethanol is by far one of the most harmful of all.
The level of intentionally disseminated lies, convolutions, distortions surrounding pharmacology is extreme. Physicians don’t help at all - often arrogant, and generally preferring to infantilize even competent adults.
“Temperance” in general is (only eventually over time and experience) perhaps found and maintained. Entirely arising from within and personal knowledge based upon first-hand experiences. The “Victimhood” culture invites us to hold anyone but ourselves responsible (the doctor, the pharmacist, the manufacturer). This “indemnified herd” mentality has left us with the chemical-statist totalitarian-state (ie, the CDC, FDA, and their ilk), and an armada of (IMO) pseudo-psychiatric parasites, therapists, and “life coaches”. …
