Perhaps, but for the most part, drugs are drugs. How they get into your
bloodstream is only partially relevant.

My main concern isn't about the *concept* of this stuff, really. It's about
the number of guys I've met who are probably already plotting nefarious ways
to use it.

I'm frightened by the Modern North American Male Sex Drive (tm), fueled as
it is by a wide variety of cultural influences, and too often undeterred by
ethical considerations.

Those of you who haven't recently seen a movie directed at high school kids
(American Pie 2, Van Wilder, etc.) might want to do a little research. I'm
not saying I think they're bad influences, necessarily (though they're truly
horrible movies). But the next time I hear a kid on the city bus bragging
about his recent sexual "escapades" (read: crimes), I'll be ready to start
pointing fingers.

(Note: the previous statement goes against all of my deeply held beliefs
about free speech issues, parents-vs-censorship, etc. I'm not sure how to
feel about that.)

That's only scary from a commercial standpoint. But highly viable. :)
