Happy 420, stonerfags. You're all fucking annoying. I realize what weed can do for people and I have no problem with people smoking and enjoying it, but a good portion of stoners all act like the same douchey edm loving faggot. So shout out to you, you're the reason people hate stoners, you obnoxious faggots.
People who even enjoy are degenerates.
I've met some decent stoners, but an overwhelming majority are just douchebags and idiots. I don't personally blame the weed, but most of these faggots make weed their life, it's all they talk about and it's annoying as all hell.
Have some Tiffany Amber Thiessen as my gratuity, good sir.
>overwhelming majority are just douchebags and idiots.
Confirmed for not knowing anyone.
It's quite the opposite.
Small percentage are a douchy, edm loving faggot shiteaters.
The rest are doing it and minding their own business, hence you don't even see it.
Being a stoner I only find the humor in it. I mean buy 80% buy glass well over $800 while leaving at home. Some that think oh I'm going to be a famous career stoner. They can kill themselves
smokeing weed > taking pills
this is a fact that you all can ignore, but is true
give old pepole weed instead of 50 pills a day and they will have alote more money and less health issuses.
even if you over use water you can get hurt, weed is no exseption, but if you use it just right, everything is ok..
OP here, I never said the drug itself was bad, but your people can be generalized as massive faggots and I don't care about the benefits, it's no reason to be annoying cuntlords over.
Amen. Kids that get high and brag about it like
>weeds my life
>the whole stoner movement
just let me smoke my stash and chill out. Fuck you and your bob marley weed leaf shirts and all that fucked up shit
I smoke weed but 95% of the people I see weekly even monthly don't know I smoke see
I just smoke weed with my close buddies and keep that fact to myself
I'm not proud of stoner culture but atleast young.
Those are the worst. Rastafrianism is a religion, not a trend to perpetuate your douchey habit. And, those unbearable faggots that only ever talk about blunts or dabs or whatever, and have pot leaf tube socks are the worst. Fuck people.
Wasn't even bait dude. I think he was just explaining similar hyperbolic examples to poke holes in what he thought OPs views were. Though he was wrong about what OPs views were. And relating weed which is undeniably negative for productivity if we're simply talking recreational, to coke or music which have no other health impacts aside from the obvious. They're very different. Seems like everyone in defense is just fucking stupid or too high to argue soundly..
I don't mind bitch with curves fam.

i agree. i mean there is money in it and a few that i know and love as friends are making (or getting a good attempt at ) a living from it but still. its not everything. YES it is great it is fun but when it gets to the point where its every single day and your tolerance goes up.. just a diff story. yes you can function and even hold a job. no you arent hurting anyone. but at the same time most stoners are mentally just in their own world. idgaf how long youve smoked how much you smoke if you say it doesnt take a toll you are most likely lying or a 1/100. it really fucks with your memory and can sometimes make you reclusive. im not saying its bad but i know a lot of potheads that are very forgetful and have called locksmiths plenty of times. i am not anti weed. i love it actually. its just that too much of anything is bad. people abuse it when it should be treated like a treat.
If I lived your life, I'd kill myself. You're not happy. You've just convinced yourself you're not a failure against your better judgement. You're an ugly, asocial, weak little person.
God you're weak. Take a firm stance on one side or the other, you bitch. (Btw, if you really believe weed doesn't impact you, you're pathetic. You're dependent because you never learned to deal with normal developmental anxieties, and because of your "solution", you never will.)
No, as much as it may seem like I want to hurt you. I really just wish you'd recognize how shitty you're life is so you'll try to improve it. Being okay with fucking a fat girl doesn't mean you're less of a pussy. It means you're too much of a pussy to fuck the girl that's out of your league. There's never been an instance that any person has been to much of a pussy to fuck a fat girl. They either were pussies for other reasons. Or had more self respect than you
how old are you? i'm curious. i cant pick a side because life isnt white and black kid. weed isnt bad, certain people abuse it and it really changes them. some for the better, some worse. some are in between. but hey what do i know? i'm weak and you have to call me names hahah
its okay kiddo you dont have to have an adult conversation. you can call me weak and a bitch if it makes you feel better and hey you already told me to kill myself! good for you, you have an opinion you dont want to go in depth on. thats great. real mature kiddo. but hey it is /b/ and i am well aware of where i am posting so yeah. thats it. hope you have a great night/morning where ever you are
Happy Christmas, santafags. You're all fucking annoying. I realize what christmas cheer can do for people and I have no problem with people exchanging gifts and enjoying the holiday, but a good portion of christmas fanatics all act like the same douchey cookie loving faggot. So shout out to you, you're the reason people are grinches, you obnoxious faggots
It's not Christmas that I hate (in particular), it's those smug ifaggots who camp outside apple stores, forget to close their mouths and bulge their eyes whenever they see the latest iPhone but can't even say how it's fucking different last
If I had the option I would go to android. But at this moment I am stuck with a shit tier iphone, it honestly is garbage. As soon as I have the money I'm switching over to apple.
>When stonerfags start talking about curing cancer
He don't say such blatant lies. Some people see weed like theists see religions.
You know, some stuff was not democratically accepted and are multinational speculation. The one who can and want actively ban coca cola may probably get shooted by some hired killers.
Fucking this. I'm tired of faggots making broad claims and not having any way to back it up, they just expect all of /b/ to kiss their ass and believe their words are rock solid and their logic is infallible.
I can name you at least 5 worse groups.
Why vegan? I'm vegan and I don't even talk about it that much. I'm just vegan because I'm emphatic towards animals and it's really good for you and the environment. We actually live longer.
I don't hate meat eaters and when I try to educate them I do it peacefully and respectfully. When I see people eating meat, I walk up to them and inform them of how it happens and if it upsets them I ask them how the fella on their plate must have felt. If it still upsets then I back off because I'm not a bigot and I respect differing opinions. I only do this because I care about nature. Imagine if aliens came in UFOs and farmed human beings, you probably wouldn't like it. I respect your choice if you disagree but I insist that everyone know what animals and the environment go through. It's for the greater good; together we can make a difference.
Know what I hate? Generalizing fuckheads who have nothing better to do but bash anyone who happens to have a different lifestyle to them.
Go now and remove your head from your ass, punk.

BACK TO THINKING BINGE-DRINKING IS COOL WITH THOSE UNDERAGED ACCIDENTS.
AT LEAST TOO MUCH ALCOHOL COULD UNDO THEM.
GOD DAMN IT.
I'M TIRED OF THE KIDDY-ESQUE "WEED CULTURE", I JUST WANT TO SMOKE WEED, HAVE FUN AND NOT HARASS PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE TO LIVE WITHOUT IT.
WHY IS THAT SO DIFFICULT FOR EVERYONE ELSE?
it's just that stoners in the stereotypical way, like a drunk or a junkie are generally hated by people because they're fucking annoying to be around.
not that all people who smoke pot are, but some and sometimes a lot of people are fucking annoying. but they're probably be annoying shit heads regardless of the weed, just about other shit.
You're an idiot. Not everyone has the same response to weed as you do. And calling someone a sheep makes me want to rip the tinfoil off of your head, if anything you're the fucking sheep for following all your little friends smoking weed and using the same old tired counter-arguments that have been used a million times.
It's also been said a million times ITT that nobody cares about the drug itself or regular folks that just like to smoke, but we hate faggots like you. People that have the highlight of their day being rolling a perfect blunt. People that have nothing else to look forward to than going to their dealer and buying a dime bag. We hate you because you're weak and obnoxious and fucking boring. Do something different. Drugs don't make you interesting, you make yourself interesting
1/10 for making me respond to obvious b8
poster who had the hate vent up there.
aaaaand you fucked up.
having someone stoned as fuck while you're sober IS annoying. have you never experienced having a shitfaced guy knock your door and be super drunk or high at yours?
if not, stop talking. never praise weed again. you're just a religiously obseased cunt, that's it. you know nothing.
call a friend, tell him to get wasted/stoned as fuck next time you're dry, and have him chill with you.
then we'll see how it goes.
it's fun to do but don't harass others with being temporarily unaccountable. if you're on anything aside from nicotine or caffeine, do not expect people to enjoy you company. you'll end up looking like a mentally damaged moron. you really will.
Learn how to fucking spell, tard.
Are you that ignorant? Alcohol is in no way comparable to weed. People die from drinking everyday. Remind me, how many people have died from smoking pot? Not one, not EVER. 0.
Weed is the best thing that ever happened to medicine, it has thousands of uses, to name a few: treating insomnia, reducing stress, killing cancer cells and pain relief. There is also plenty of evidence that psychedelics make you less ignorant, more self aware and intelligent.
Get over yourself, granddad, and leave your outdated prejudices where they belong: in the past.
Are you seriously comparing nicotine to cannabis? They are nothing alike and nicotine rots your insides and gives you cancer.
>Stoners are some of the dumbest, most ignorant people I know.
Seems like you're just narrow minded to me.
I could see psychadelics opening your mind to new experiences, because some of them a pretty crazy. But do you know what I see from most users of those drugs? Fucking pretension. I see it because every time the topic comes up they are the first to talk about how open minded and self aware they are. Self awareness isn't about taking some old mushrooms and seeing shit that isn't there. It's about understanding yourself and your reality in an unbiased way.
And let's talk about how many other things can do the same thing as weed. Don't praise a plant for doing something medicine can already do without mentioning the fact that the only reason it's any better is because the side affects and long term health detriment is not as notable as other pharmaceuticals.
You're retarded for saying what he said was prejudiced in any way. It's probably time for you to go smoke pot and feel enlightened you douche-bag.
Working out, eating right, vitamins, nutrients, etc. This nigger thinks that just because weed can do this shit when you smoke it it's fucking incredible. Stoners are amazed at anything, I guess.
You mean those corporate salesman of chemical crap? It's bullshit and they only care about your money. Weed can't hut you, it's only a plant and is 100% natural.
>It's probably time for you to go smoke pot and feel enlightened you douche-bag.
Don't pretend you understand what enlightenment is. Perhaps you only see enlightened people as pretentious because you are still living in a every-man-for-themselves dream world of rampant consumerism and hatred, that is devoid of any meaning and empathy. A higher of consciousness can only be archived with humility, dedication and an extremely open mind. What you see in others, is just a reflection of yourself.
It's well known that castor oil seeds are poisonous. Are you trying to imply that cannabis is poisonous? I've been using it for years and I'm perfectly fine. At least back up your claims when you make them you fucking moron.
Natural =/= healthy
And by pharmaceuticals I mean those things that are synthesized in labs to produce outcomes. Chemicals aren't always bad in the same way natural sources (which for retards that don't understand science could include massive amounts of chemicals) aren't always good.
You don't know shit about my understanding of the world, you don't know my views on enlightenment, and you don't know my philosophical standing. Consumerism and hatred have literally nothing to do with this argument. And saying that what I see in others is a reflection of myself is a bullshit cop out that you psuedo-enlightenment faggots use because you don't have a grasp on true awareness.
No, he is trying to say that not everything 100% natural is automatically healthy. Elements are natural and in their individual states many of them can and will fucking kill you if you consume them.
You wouldn't smoke or eat acacia now would you?
If you knew anything about enlightened high-level beings, you would not be so condescending and dismissive towards us. I'm not convinced you have any kind of philosophical standing because you are merely implying without explaining it.
Only poisons will kill you if you consume them. Cannabis has been shown to have an immense range of medical applications and is specifically cultivated for medical purposes and is much healthier than alcohol.
Then you are a deeply selfish and intolerant bigot, the worst kind of person.
I just lost my shit. You must suffer from hallucinations caused by stress from being in the third grade.
You're obviously not listening to the arguments that are being presented to you. You're a fucking moron. I'm done.
Found more of these I saved as many as I could find
Yes, go back to your cave and bitch about Justin Bieber or something. The moment you don't understand something, the other person is just crazy; very sophisticated outlook.
Doctors work for the pharmaceutical corporations. Have fun being on mind dumbing meds for the rest of your life.
I LOVE THAT YOU ARE DESCRIBING ME TO THE FUCKING T AND THERES NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT LMAO
AND THAT I HAVE A FULL HAPPY LIFE WITH PARTNER, FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHOM I SEE ON A REGULAR BASIS LMAO
I LOVE THAT YOU'RE A FAG LOL
CAPS IS LOCKS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL

This is literally my favorite thread of the whole god damn day.
Selfish for wanting to enjoy my meal without some faggot telling how bad I am? The sure I'm selfish. Ignorant I am not, I know about going vegan (everyone has heard) we just choose not to
yeah but when an apple fag throws out last year's phone they are stupid enough to leave the lithium batteries in fucking up garbage trucks and city dumps. At least weed can't ruin city services when discarded.
I totally respect your opinion to be selfish but you are intolerant of mine. This makes you a bigot and all bigots are ignorant. I do it because I care, some people are completely unaware so I try to show them some care.
Human beings... ?
Kek is this nigga serious? Pic definitely related you dumb fucks
You're an idiot. A lack of sincerity is not my problem. My problem is that you're a (presumably) grown adult living in a fantasy when there's no reason for you to believe it. You defend yourself by dodging the actual refutations and you make assumptions that are based on nothing.
And if you think that other forms of life can't exist outside of earth, you're even more fucking retarded.
So are you trying to tell me that human beings are aliens? Now who's the crazy one?
You're first paragraph is entirely abstract, you brought up no points whatsoever. Also I never said lifeforms can't exist outside of earth, Neil Armstrong existed on the moon for a short while.
I made plenty of points and the evidence for those points are in the fucking thread.
You call yourself enlightened but can't conceptualize how fucking massive the universe is and how many habitable locations there have already been found in it?
I'm done taking the bait.
No, I was literally asking where human beings came from? Like, are you seriously this retarded? Trolling? Yes, Earth is where we are. God damn, how do I deal with this fuck.
The process, the life process. The beginning of life. How did it start, my friend? Please enlighten me. Because it did start somewhere, and Earth had the perfect conditions. If you ended up on any other planet, with the same events, I'd be having this exact same conversation with you.
Now you can tell me you believe in a God, so I can immediately leave and not waste any more of my time.
"Neil Armstrong existed on the moon for a short while."
I laughed. It's a troll guys.
THE DEFINITION OF "ALIEN" INHIBITS THE IDEA OF HUMANS BEING ALIENS
TO CONSIDER THAT THERE IS NO OTHER ALIEN LIFE ELSEWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE IS NAIVE AND SILLY. TO REALLY CONSIDER THAT WE ARE ALONE IN SOMETHING SO INCOMPREHENSIBLY BIG IS LULZ
THAT BEING SAID IF YOU STEM FAR ENOUGH YOU COULD CONSIDER THAT OUR "ANCESTORS" ARE NOT FROM EARTH, BUT IN REALITY THEY WERE NOT HUMANS.
You keep saying things relating to others assuming you're crazy. Nobody has called you crazy. I think you might be crazy, aware of it, and are now trying to push the assertion on others so one day when you go too far you can say "DEY TOL ME I WUZ CRAZY," for the novelty.
The other guy was stating that he is a retard for not thinking that there could be any other life on other planets other than Earth.
That guy intentionally said Neil Armstrong was on the moon, to fuck around saying the moon was inhabited by other life forms. Come on nigga, you think I'm as retarded as that faggot?
Fucking this. Weed takes away certain brain presets and causes you to basically go to manual on everything. It also lowers your alertness, which is something that is a detriment to the way we function every day. If you can learn how to function with that, great, but don't turn into a fucking cock sucker because you learnt sumthin
Without proof, why should anyone believe it's even possible? That is entirely based on faith.
Don't make assumptions and there is no proof for God.
Try again without caps.
Actually someone did say that I was crazy, look again. Not even using it as my main argument but whatever.
We should believe it's possible because it's been shown that it is. The evidence is out there. It is well known fact that there are inhabitable planets in other solar systems
Now, with that we don't know for sure if other forms of life exist because we have yet to observe it, but we can infer it because of the possibility, keeping in mind our only frame of reference for that is our own history, it's pretty safe to assume life exists elsewhere.
I enjoy weed a ton, but fuck.. I can't stand a lot of people who smoke.
The way they act, the music they listen to, the clothes they wear.. There are different stoner types, but they are still all the same. They try to fit some stupid stoner image and just mimic the stereotypes and what others do. They are probably one of the reason it remains illegal. Their obnoxious behavior.
I'm the person I've always been, and I smoke weed whenever I can. I often do it alone to avoid the chance of being around these people. What people I do smoke with don't let it define their character and just enjoy it and don't try projecting their smoking as who they are.
When it defines your character and you're always talking about it, posting shit on facebook, wearing potleafs on clothes, etc, that when it becomes obnoxious. Anyone can smoke weed. It's not a talent. It doesn't make you look cool. Just fucking enjoy it and stop making it who you are. You're not fucking 12.
Fucking hippies ruin everything.
>Op is the biggest faggot for being a hypocritical cuckfuck.
Get out and win bread for your family, autistic chooths.
That makes absolutely no sense, sir. You sound ridiculous if anything.
Let me get this straight. You live your life here, on Earth, thinking that this planet is the only unique planet out of fucking trillions of others?
You're ridiculous. If there is something I hate dearly in this world, it's people like you, who don't think the universe is a compelling piece of wonders.
NASA recently discovered proof that there was water on Mars. Water is the natural life source, you've already lost before you began. But keep thinking like you do, android.
I was using it to point out that all the information about the formation of life is what we have here on earth.
I don't see the redundancy and I don't use it because of Einstein.
Pharmacologist chiming in. You're a fucking insipid cunt.
"Weed can't hurt you." I mean really cunt. Ricin and Botulin are 100% natural and among the most deadly toxicants known to exist. Medical benefits from weed outside of analgesia and neuropathy management are garnered from CBD, a very strong anti-psychotic that negates your high entirely.
I try a fair few drugs, but I have the benefit of a tertiary education and access to literature which I can review. I have background education in narcotic pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, toxicology, Neuropharmacology, and Drug Design & Development. To say any drug is safe is perhaps the most naive statement you fucking new age pricks can say, and the reason why you fucks don't make the link between smoking weed and the emphysema you experience because it's obviously "those chemicals in the air."
I see little in those who worship drugs as some kind of locked away secret, nor do I take much of their word for granted when they preach at people manifestly false facts verified by thousands of independent agencies, organisations and researchers worldwide.
On another note:
> You mean those corporate salesman of chemical crap? It's bullshit and they only care about your money.
Of course they're there to make money. Jesus fucking Christ does apple make new laptops to move humanity forward? Do small businesses seem happy when they're not breaking a profit? Lest we forget that Pharmaceutical companies provide billions of dollars in drug aid to impoverished nations each year and actually choose to not pursue patent infringements from 3rd world manufacturers who peddle off their product. A single drug marketed in America costs about 2 billion dollars to develop and test, following R&D to deliver a drug that doesn't kill cunts or have horrible side effects. A good example of why they do this is to avoid another Thalidomide incident.
Pharmeceutical companies are businesses that make money.
Water (or brime) does not equate to life you tard.
Even with trillions of planets, the probability of life is just way too high.
The Universe is a place of magnificent wonder and you can learn to see the wonder but you can only see it that way if you are enlightened.
We're speaking biology here, not physics. You're use of the term was superfluous and can only mean you were trying to sound smart.
If you read again, you'll see I've already explained why these arguments are wrong. I don't trust a single thing you say and you really ought to be ashamed. Stop fucking up humanity.
>it's really good for you
>We actually live longer
Bullshit. My sister's husband wasn't a vegan but he barely ate animal protein, like three times a year at most. He started shrinking, losing muscle mass and getting health problems. Went to doctor. Recommendation? Eat animal meat.
He started eating chicken, fish and lamb all the time, with beef once a week or so. He's healthy as fuck now.
Our body EVOLVED eating animals. It NEEDS it. Stop being a stupid bandwagonner who doesn't even know actual facts about nutrition. The previous description is true for every self-called vegan I have ever met.
You do realize that for every group of people who are passionate about something, a certain percentage of them will be dumb shits - right?
so why bash stoners, instead of the annoying religious people, the annoying atheists, the annoying agnostics, the annoying homeless people or the annoying rich people?
I feel like you just need somebody to be mad at - and so you picked annoying stoners, for some reason.
Clearly he doesn't know how to eat properly. Tell him to eat organic food next time.
Veganism is great for the environment and it is the very next stage of evolution. More and more people are becoming vegan all the time.
I am pretty sure if they have its to better their own bodies such as a warrior breed or just increase their overall physical output rather than sitting around talking about how high they are.
There you go with buzzwords and unproven talk again. He hasn't changed his diet an inch besides including animal protein, and his health took a 180° turn. He has always eaten organic food, you dumb fuck.
I know this is bait and I took it, but you are still human garbage for actually trying to convince people of this.
I know plenty of vegans and they are much healthier than all the fat sloppy-minded meat eaters I know. They also have a much greater sense of well being. You're argument is crap.
>I don't trust a single thing you say and you really ought to be ashamed. Stop fucking up humanity.
I'm the guy who designs better alternatives to naloxone so when you OD the paramedics can revive you.
I'm the guy who tells government bodies that Cannabis has medicinal uses in certain circumstances, yet always gets ignored.
I'm the guy who develops less toxic alternatives to chemotheraputic drugs on barely minimum wage.
I'm the guy who tells the government the MoA behind agent Orange toxicity and makes the link to congenital birth defects, giving headway for compensation
I'm the guy who looks at why the elderly are dying from DDIs and determines if a common factor can be removed to reduce mortalities in hundreds of thousands of people.
I'm the guy who designs semi-synthetic antibiotics for that infection that took hold in your leg last summer.
I'm the guy who spent years of his life learning about one thing so I could make a difference in that field.
I'm the guy who advises you that alcoholics are at extreme risk of liver damage when consuming paracetamol, as opposed to aspirin.
... I could go on. But the point is clear, my profession makes choices and statements based on facts.
I'm the guy who has to put up with vacuous bullshit from people like you who have an arts degree and an 'enlightened outlook' on drugs.
If anything you're intolerant. I don't go up to faggots and tell them they need to eat like a real man. I let gays be gays and vegans be gays. I don't impose my lifestyle on them especially while they are enjoying a meal they paid for.
Yeah. Weed has plenty of deleterious effects that just seem to be forgotten; as well as the fact that the most therapeutic substance, CBD, is an anti-psychotic and removes that THC endows.
Honestly don't know why I reply to these threads. I could get a more stimulating conversation from calling a feminist a slut.
You're so full of shit.
I'm completely tolerant of others. You're the one (or some other guy) who said that you would beat me up for it. Freedom of speech, bitch.
Holy fuck this thread is full of idiots.
Drugs: No Drug has only benefits, if you need to defend why you smoke weed everyday you are probably an addict. Congrats.
If you amoke a joint once a month it won't make you a retard either and you'll probably have a fun time.
Veganism: Yeah it is bad for you to eat lot's of meat everyday but to avoid it completely will make it nessacary that you have to substitute a lot of things chemically.
Forcing children to live a vegan lifestile could even lead to retardation.
So its's allways the middle you fucking retards. If you take drugs, try to get the knowledge what said drug will do with your body.
If you do a fucking diet learn about the side effects.
My boss isn't smoking right now for a drug test
"I'd like to quit for good, but if I did I'd be an alcoholic or pick up something worse"
He definitely has a mental addiction to the feeling of being high
>tfw I work for an independent organisation
10. Debunked. There was even a cohort study in Norway where 60,000 children were monitored after MMR administration over a set time period.
9. Literally has nothing to do with pharmaceutical companies.
8. 1901. Nigger are you trying to prove my point that you cunts are retarded? Literally 1 oversight that led to the deaths of 12 children. Based off pre-vaccination death rates you could expects thousand. of children to die from diptheria in that same timeframe. Tragic, but not some "wooo big evil pharma thing." Literally any horse could be used as an inexpensive replacement too - Jim wasn't a high value asset.
7. Yep. This was spectacular at the time. But there's better explanation for why a CONTRACTER company would do this when still getting paid the same amount by the pharmeceutical company. Regardless, a spectacular fuck-up and huge oversight in QA.
6. Literally just finished reading about this today. No excuses besides the fact that it was in 193fucking7. Tehse days you can barely breathe without the amount of regulations - which is a good thing. New drugs on the market are usually only withdrawn to obscure DDIs.
5. No excuses except that NECC is a small company and not 'big pharma.' They were fucking idiots, but contamination does happen when there's even a small lapse in sterilisation protocol.
4. Again, not big pharma - more just greedy bastards cutting costs - and the first definitive case of it on this list outside of Menangill. Take home message? By the brand name implants from big pharma.
3. Unlicensed Chinese manufacturer harming panamanians who lack proper health infrastructure? That's like being surprised that your mate's DIY pipe bomb blows up in your face.
2. This was huge at the time. Enormous. BUT BARE IN MIND THAT HIV WAS LITERALLY IN IT'S OPENING STAGES THEN. There were very few inexpensive tests for it and not much was known about it.
Pick one, faggot. Minor Threat was an 80s HC band. Not all logos with that lettering are edgy fucks (despite that minor threat was a straight-edge band).
2. ...In fact, HIV testing using an ELISA standard with WB confirmation hadn't been devised yet, meaning people donating blood couldn't effectively be screened. What are you gonna do? Just turn off the taps and let crash survivors bleed out and haemophiliacs die from a paper cut? Shit, back then people actually thought you could get it from being sneezed on.
1. Yep. The first proper example of a 'Big Pharma' company misbehaving. Thalidomide is a actually an extremely effective drug with tonnes of applications when in the R-configuration. However, the complementary S-enantiomer was a severe teratogen. Problem was, at this stage it was considered impossible to separate a racemic mixture (we literally only figured out how to do so on a large scale in the past two decades).
When early reports of thalidomide babies trickled down, the Grünenthal Group ignored the claims and refused to withdraw their drug. Luckily, America's FDA, being absolute champions that they are (seriously, their Drug division is top notch), had expressed doubts and had refused to approve it. That company are scum, but their product is indeed theraputic.
I don't know how you sleep at night. You're either a shill or in denial.
I sleep very well. Unlike you I got an education. It's awesome, you should try it some time.
Then again, you're a top notch shelf stacker son. I hear you may even get promoted soon. Don't stop being you!
