Raving And Ranting About Drug Users

To a sobered Bombay, a hung-over Gujarat and a world on drugs

Drugs remain a taboo because we choose to keep it that way. What goes on at jungle raves and beach raves goes on at clubs and house parties too, the difference being that a jungle or beach party would have much higher levels of energy. And raves are the ones that get busted by cops more than any other type of event. But what authorities don’t know is that police raids on such parties can cause more harm than do good. Partygoers running helter-skelter – sober and clean people running because they have a train to catch the next afternoon, others running because they are on drugs. People chucking all their stash and fleeing by leaping over high walls, escaping by hiding in garbage bins for hours, or breaking a leg by jumping from a dangerous height in fear of being caught by cops who claim they want don’t want to harass the drug users and only want information on where the drugs are coming from.

The whole damn world knows where the maal is sold: right under the police’s nose. But legalization is too much to ask for, even if it means that charas and ganja will be bought and sold legally and people will get to smoke unadulterated stuff, and that corruption will decrease because the police will not be able to take hafta from peddlers and bribes from scared youngsters and the Government will make a killing with the revenue generated from sales of recreational drugs.

Look at Gujarat. Supposedly a dry state, but a bazaar for bootleggers, with alcohol in every form being sold at costly rates… and who’s buying? Almost everybody is. Some might say lifting the ban on alcohol in Gujarat may encourage youngsters to drink, but imagine what happens when a young driver gets drunk on his dad’s bottle o’ bootlegged and is stopped by cops. That’s right – not only is driving drunk a crime, but in the land of Gandhi, even drinking is a crime. So, the fellow steps on the gas in panic, the alcohol and adrenalin playing havoc with his mind, and rams the car into something or someone he shouldn’t. That day will come sooner or later, Gujarat. In Bombay, we’ll jail the drunk driver. In Ahmedabad, you’ll have only yourselves to blame.

We’re the ones who criminalize the use of drugs. For some reason, we’re afraid to let others know that we have used drugs to our advantage, that they have helped us greatly and that we would have been far less aware of ourselves and things around us had we not taken those drugs. It’s not necessary to announce to the boss that he would have a great time smoking pot or to inform everyone at a family function that they’re all idiots because they haven’t dropped acid, but to not acknowledge that which has played a positive role in our lives is to disrespect it. Hey, if we can be grateful to a god who won’t rise for a turkey that didn’t come flying from heaven, and if we can praise an invisible god for everything that happens even though it was the butcher who slaughtered the goat, we can surely give credit where it’s overdue, yeah?

    This legalization will face a huge opposition from the underworld, and hence quite a number of politicians. We all know they feed off each other’s shit, so this doesn’t look very viable as of now. Share most of your sentiments though.

    WordPress should stop making money off this blog by way of ads now that you’ve bought the domain.

    i feel only reason why govt is not legalizing drugs and prostitution is out of the fear of making so much money in revenue that they will be clueless how to spend that money wisely… 😀

    but i still feel chup chup ke karne mein jo majja hai…woh khol khol ke karne mein nahi hai… and not getting cought is the reward ….

    rave parties need to be smaller in size and far far away from cities.. and u should not invite police to rave parties that have too much baggage.. they are framed by others and JUNTA gets fucked in the ass in bargain.. generally when 2 titans clash… here in this case the first titan was that policewala who was cought at the rave party and other titan are the ones jo uska badla lene ke liye tadap rahe they…..

    ha ha ha…

    that’s the thing..the moment u illegalize anything, more crime happens..not to mention those peddlers DO NOT deserve to be in jail
    also if u legalize it, u have to account that the product is gonna be taxed..its actually fucking great for the economy
    it will create more jobs if not anything else

    imagine your local 24 hours home delivery service for ganja and charas..and an awesome website that takes care of the logistics and billing

    there is all sorts of people getting jobs here: management, finance. supply chain, IT, delivery, marketing, advertising…its a full blown corporation..maybe even recession proof..because ganja grows every fucking where
    there is a constant and an expanding demand and a more than sufficient supply here.

    what kind of an idiot has a problem with this?

    i am although scared, some idiotic marketing firm can completely fuck it up by selling it in the wrong way, but its a small price to pay for the beauty that is legalization

    besides its not that people who dont smoke up or dont do drugs, do not do it because its illegal. they dont do it because they dont like it..legalization is not suddenly going to have an increase in people getting into this.

    at least with marijuana, i know the reasons were related to the paper lobby wanting to get hemp off the market…
    maybe just maybe i can sort of understand the impact of drugs like heroin to remain illegalized, but i will still keep an open mind about it.

    It will NOT be legalized for the same reason that sports betting and prostitution WILL NOT be. In spite of the fact that legalization automatically means regulation (and thus, observance of basic moral codes, or plain rise in revenue), the fact remains that the people who carry out these activities in violation of the law want to keep it that way.

    In the USA, the Sicilians were not the first organized crime mob. The Germans, the Irishers and even the Jews had been around for a while. The eye-ties just happened to come along in large numbers at the time of prohibition. That was what made them a force to recon with in the world of organized crime, because they were able to supply that which was banned. The point is, both of these were activities that everybody indulges in once in a while. The policemen and the politicians too liked their drinks, and so they were willing to look the other way. When the time came to repeal the prohibition, it was these very mobsters who tried their level best to ensure that that doesn’t happen.
