Hello Derwin Sherwood.
I found myself agreeing with you until the LSD part and only because of my experience with it. I was aware of what was happening and equally aware that I was not in control of my reactions and emotions. I was watching myself, so to speak, swing from the deepest hilarity to the darkest despair. My body was not in my control. I didn't care for that experience and wished it only to be over as I watched myself in horror from the depths of my mind.
Was this a message from my higher self? That I needed to be aware of the extreme emotional side of me and take control? If so, the revelation just hit me, over 30 years later.
Cannabis, never hurt a soul that I'm aware of.
