Although it was a good faith edit, I had to undo your edit. The key terms are drug abuse and licit. Ordinary use of legal, prescribed drugs does not qualify as drug abuse, which is what your edit would have implied. DanH 02:30, 18 March 2008 (EDT)
This page is poorly written by people who obviously have no idea regarding the chemistry of such discussed substances. I have cleaned up Cannabis for the time being. Brum 22:00, 16 November 2008 (EST)
JimErgopo's druggie reference
Jimmy, you can find them here:
- Isaiah 47:9
- But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.
- Isaiah 47:12
- Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.
- Acts 8:11
- And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
- Revelation 9:21
- Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
- Revelation 18:23
- And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
The root word for "sorceries" in this context is φαρμακείο "farmakeio", from which the word "pharmacy" comes from. Jimmy, did you know that a pharmacy is a drug store? That they sell drugs? Ya learn sumpin' new every day! Karajou 21:18, 9 March 2010 (EST)
Cocaine and Methaquaalone are both listed here under legal drugs, but both are Schedule 1 compounds!
