Mayor Pete Wants to Decriminalize 'Meth, Coke, Ecstasy,' Not Just Pot
[PJMEDIA] In an interview on Friday, Mayor Pete Buttigieg
...the testicleless mayor of South Bend, Indiana, since 2012. Buttigieg graduated from Harvard College and, on a Rhodes Scholarship, from Pembroke College, Oxford. From 2007 to 2010, he worked at McKinsey and Company, a consulting firm. From 2009 to 2017 Buttigieg served as an intelligence officer in the United States Navy Reserve, attaining the rank of lieutenant and deploying to Afghanistan in 2014. Buttigieg was first elected mayor of South Bend in 2011 and was reelected in 2015. During his second term, he announced he was gay. Buttigieg also campaigned for Indiana state treasurer in 2010 and for chair of the Democratic National Committee in 2017, losing both elections. He is running for the Dem nomination in 2020 on the theory that being mayor of a nondescript medium sized city is qualification to run the country...
(D-Church of Social Justice) clarified his drug policy, calling for decriminalization of all drugs including methamphetamine, cocaine, and ecstasy.

"Incarceration should not even be a response to drug possession," Buttigieg told editors at the Des Moines Register.

An editor pressed him, "Is that across the board? So if it’s meth or coke or ecstasy, any drugs, if it’s possession, incarceration isn’t..."

"That’s right," Mayor Pete said.

"I would not have said even five years ago what I believe now, which is that incarceration should not even be a response to drug possession," the candidate added. "What I’ve seen is that while there continue to be all kinds of harms associated with drug possession and use, it’s also the case that we have created‐in an effort to deal with what amounts to a public health problem‐we have created an even bigger problem. A justice problem and its form of a health problem."

#4 They control California and this is what you see in the streets of Democratic areas. Sounds like he is getting support from the cartels now.

Meth can increase the body’s temperature and heart rate, making a user sweat profusely, even with little activity. Signs of Use. Rapid rotting and loss of teeth. Methamphetamine creates the “perfect storm” for decaying teeth due to dry mouth, poor diet, lack of oral hygiene, teeth grinding, and the acidity of the drug.

Cocaine
Regular, heavy use can have extremely negative consequences, from nosebleeds to permanent lung damage and even death.

#9 Cocaine

Don't forget heart damage - arrhythmia and that sort of thing. I can attest to that personally.

That policy position right there should disqualify him as a serious candidate. If you want to see what a fucking hellscape of thrown away lives, I'll take you through Manchester, NH sometime. The center / downtown area of my hometown has been destroyed by hundreds, maybe even a few thousand, of drug zombies and people who will never work again. We do NOT need to encourage this shit, and this asshole is dead fucking WRONG on this one.

#11 I have an old San Francisco tome, first written in 1973, that goes into all the highs then admitted to be explored. The last edit was 1990. It seems he is just dipping into it. Most of the highs are about 1 page of detail and document goes on for near 1000 pages. Perhaps he needs a copy to start real experimental escapism and advocacy?

#14 Pete is not the kind of guy who has to worry what effect his policies will have on children who are not yet mature enough to resist the pressure they will get to take these drugs. We know that most nicotine addicts started using when they were in their early to mid teens. If a kid grows to a certain age without trying it, odds are they never will. But when meth, coke, ecstasy and opiods are legal then kids will be exposed to them. They'll be dropping dead in the classrooms and playgrounds.



What, me worry?

You have to wonder if it's only the illegal alien vote that makes them want to leave the border open.

Mark these words 'ere me boy,
lest the entity that is McCoy
on mention of these words;
be summoned from abaft its couch.
Thou wouldst not; but it's spooky,
and amunch on its cookie,
t'wud sense the need for a grouch.

#21 Announcing you will legalize meth is foolish as Meth users are unlikely to vote and anyone who has family members, or has been victimized by, or watched Breaking Bad knows Meth is a nightmare.

#22 We should create toddler cities in which folks voluntarily check in, have a roof over their head, 3 meals a day, decent housing, and even the drugs of their choice in exchange for their right to vote (if you check out you lose the right to vote at the next big election to avoid check-in/check-outs to abuse the system). The drugs of their choice will ensure the numbers don't get out of hand.

#29 The argument for legalization isn't that drugs aren't bad (sorry for all the negatives), but rather that criminalization is worse.

#36 Example of the type of information that would excite Mayor Pete from his support of this stuff. Look at it as major HEAD lore library material.

the Effects of Psilocybe Cyanescens

Not only is Psilocybe cyanescens more potent it has different effects from that of Psilocybe cubensis. It comes on quicker, in 5 to 15 minutes when chewed in the mouth, instead of the 15-30 minutes required for Psilocybe cubensis. It also peaks quicker, in about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, instead of 2 to 2 1/2 hours for Psilocybe cubensis. Its also somewhat sedating (perhaps do to the 4-OH-T content), while Psilocybe cubensis is very stimulating. Its also less exciting, less euphoric, but more relaxing and peaceful. Its also much more visual and more "psychedelic" or mind-altering and much more dreamlike. Repeated use during a day can make you very drowsy and can make it very easy for you to fall asleep, while repeated use of Psilocybe cubensis will make you very alert and cause difficulty in falling asleep. Clearly, the relaxing quality of Psilocybe cyanescens is its hallmark, making it a nice alternative to the stimulating amphetamine-like psychedelics such as LSD, peyote, exstacy, and Psilocybe cubensis (which is the least stimulating of the bunch). Some people dislike stimulants very much, for them Psilocybe cyanescens is the choice to make when deciding on which one to use. Other people dislike sedatives and would therefor not much enjoy the effects of Psilocybe cyanescens.
Although Psilocybe cyanescens is mellow its not as "friendly" as Psilocybe cubensis. It tends to be weirder and more "trippy", "emotional" and "empathogenic". Psilocybe cubensis almost always makes you feel euphoric, which causes the "trip" to be very positive. Its very hard to become depressed while "high" on Psilocybe cubensis because of its euphoric qualities. While "high" on Psilocybe cyanescens you don't have that nice euphoria to keep you in a good mood during the trip. Its not a "feel good" mushroom, while Psilocybe cubensis is. Small doses of Psilocybe cubensis are very euphoric without any hallucinogenic effects; while small doses of Psilocybe cyanescens have only hallucinogenic effects, and no noticeable sedation.

Note: The effects of most dreamogenic mushrooms are much better when the blue diquinone content is destroyed.
