There has been exactly one day in my life where drugs were being handed out for free: the day Jerry Garcia died. Even street level dealers were handing out free dimes to those in need. But aside from that day, yah, drugs cost money.

Lol is it true ? Can't tell if it's sarcasm since I don't know Jerry Garcia

Some of my friends use ecstasy and cocaine occasionally during parties. I very occasionally use it but when I do I never pay for it. Even when I try to give them money for it they refuse.

I never knew why, maybe people feel better about using drugs when more people are involved

u/costabius Jan 17 '22

If you never get high, "getting the guy who never gets high, high" is a cheap and entertaining activity for your friends.

I think you're right. Especially since a quarter of ecstasy is enough for me to spend hours trippin balls and making compliments to my pals between two sessions of teeth grinding

I went to a Halloween party once among the LGBT community and met a M2F trans escort, they looked the part entirely and were apparently absolutely fucking loaded. They were just handing out lines of Charlie to whoever wanted one. That was a fun night.

I remember in DARE we’d all ask the cop crazy questions like what if the drug dealer chases you down and makes you take drugs.

I asked about the guy wearing a bandana I saw near my house which told my white suburban self he must be in a gang.

The cop asked where I live and when I told him he said there had been activity there.

Years later I realized the activity was my POS father selling meth.

Our school buses back in the 80s were rickety death traps, at least 3 times the windows fell out. I was fighting with Dicky Davis in the aisle and the bus went round the corner as he was shoving me, i was barged into the window and the entire thing popped out, Dicky is now holding me outside the bus as it swings round this corner, he pulled me back in. I didnt shit my pants but I did probably blub a bit in terror. And again when we were shoving each other and squeezing 6 kids into a seat windows popped out, the entire units seal and all.

They can be free if you are a smokin hot young lady. I remember one girl I knew in college telling me she had never in her life bought weed before and she was an avid daily stoner for years at that point! Free drugs do happen even for men sometimes if your pathetic, broke, and hanging out with people that want your company.

37

u/legendariel Jan 17 '22

As someone who grew up as a reasonably attractive young woman, I got plenty of free drugs. Bought most of my own weed or funded by selling to my friends... but three particular instances stand out to me as the biggest real life examples that you think you'd see in a D.A.R.E. play.

One time I was at a bar and I asked a guy for a lighter. He quickly obliged and in basically the same breath asked me if I wanted to do some coke... like, thank you but just using the lighter will suffice.

Another time I was stopping at a gas station after work in the middle of the night. Parked, got out of my car, and the guy in the car I parked next to rolled his window down and wiggled a baggy of coke and said "you want a bump?" That was literally his introductory line. I said something like "boy I'm tired, I'm trying to get home and go to sleep." He said "heeeyyy it's okay you can still go to sleep!" "If I can still go to sleep it isn't worth my time to do." Lol.

The last one was a bit of an outlier but not unusual when you consider how friendly people get on the stuff, but I was a little tipsy and two girls were in the handicapped stall in the bar bathroom talking and joking and I piped up in response to something they said, which led to them inviting me into the stall so they could share with me.

People are wild lol. I'm too old and responsible to engage in any of that shit these days but back when I was working in bars and stuff, I was a generally very friendly person and it wasn't surprising to be randomly offered drugs.

13

u/MrAmazing247 Jan 17 '22

Ngl as a modestly handsome man, very in shape, You’d be surprised how much free legal and non legal stuff I have been given just because literally attraction. Crazy what root sources that move our society, we are in fact very basic and superficial beings at the core.

You don't generally get them from dealers for free but I would wager more people than not first tried pot or acid etc free at a party or from a friend. Certainly not defending DARE style education, but free drugs offered to you at some point isn't that crazy of an idea.

74

u/HeliumAlloy Jan 17 '22

You definitely get them for free if you're hot enough, they definitely cause wild hallucinations if you're buying the right drugs, and if you're popular enough in the underground music scene, people will literally worship you for it.

The problems arise when you want to mix the fun kind of drugs with an otherwise-functional lifestyle. Yeehaw, good luck Charley.

20

u/PstScrpt Jan 17 '22

Depends what you think is fun. Pot bores me, but I know lots of fully functional adults who use it regularly.

I like psychedelics, and the main reason I limit how often I use them to once every few weeks is I don't want it to be the main answer to "What do you do for fun?". I can have a nice little mushroom show for a few hours on Friday night, and I'm fine on Saturday.

u/vezwyx Jan 17 '22

Plus, I don't know about anyone else, but tripping on psychs is exhausting. Really mentally draining for me. My brain can only take so much of racing a million miles a minute. It's great while it's happening, but afterwards it's definitely taken something out of me. By the end, my mind and my eyes feel like they've been microwaved. I love tripping on acid and I'm probably gonna be doing it intermittently for my whole life, but I have no desire to do it more than once every few months, or to trip on anything else while I'm cooling down

u/tfox1123 Jan 17 '22

They did not lie, it's just not explained fully.

If you are in an environment where drugs are already available people will absolutely give you the really addictive drugs for free; once. I got heroin for free and I bought more heroin about 5 hours later then kept buying more for 2 years until I had to go to rehab. Never take free drugs, they are free because they're not free.

There are definitely drugs that give you wild hallucinations. They also happen to be the non-addictive ones, but there is a chance that you don't come back fully when you take them. I suffer from a lot of extra anxiety from taking acid too many times. I am functional, but there is something that's been different in my thought process since then.

I will agree that most people don't think you're cool for doing drugs but they do give people a shared experience and you will make friends that also do drugs. That makes it especially hard to quit, because now your sick all the time but you think it's impossible to quit because you've built a whole social life around it, so now you have to lose your best friend (drugs) and your entire social circle who, in your mind, are really good friends and most of the time your significant other. You have to quit doing drugs AND loose your whole social life and your girl/boyfriend and start over. That's why a lot of people just stay on drugs.

Those extra parts might have helped a bit more if I knew. Maybe not, but devil's in the details.

I will say it a million times, our DARE officer in 5th grade told us the most realistic shit about smoking too much weed. He was like “it’s not going to kill you or even hurt you but I have a buddy who has no ambition and lives with his parents because all he wants to do is get high”. Made me realize to only do ANYTHING in moderation (well that and seeing my alcoholic family members pass out at family gatherings after chugging SA travel mugs of Windsor Diets)….

That being said, there was always someone to smoke with if you wanted or do lines in high school…a lot of dudes just wanted someone to hang with while the did it

My 5th grade DARE program involved a presentation that I can only describe as "Fantastic Drugs and Where to Find Them." It involved close-ups of various ecstasy tablets plus names and addresses of local clubs where people were supposedly selling it, interspersed with pictures of people at said clubs having what looked like an absolutely baller time.

Oh, and at the end there were a few slides devoted to teaching us how to spot a drug dealer in a crowd. You know, so we could avoid them.

Unfortunately the clubs in question closed down before I was old enough to go. Clubbing turned out to be not my thing in any way shape or form anyhow, but my dorky little middle school ass was devastated when the two biggest ones closed after Officer Friendly made them sound like so much fun.

u/Stillwater215 Jan 17 '22

u/Educational-Candy-17 Jan 17 '22

My theory, based on absolutely nothing, is that weed was a gateway drug because people who sold you that would be willing to sell you other things too. Legalization has shown that if you can get it legitimately most people don't do other substances.

It's not popping out at you from a street corner but it's also not uncommon with 'one-night stand friends' - not hook-ups (necessarily) but people you meet at certain kinds of shows, concerts, parties, etc. and are just friends with while you're there basically. If it's that kind of environment, it's not uncommon that they'll offer you something.

He called out "Hey, yo! Do you go to [School Name]?" I replied "I teach there." He looked visibly deflated and said "Ah, never mind." I'm not sure what else his intentions could have been.

It’s called testers and dealers only do that for crack or heron because it’ll get the fiends lining up. The free shit is often laced also with fet because people will think it’s good dope.

u/CantSayDat Jan 17 '22

Yeah, that doesnt usually happen either though lol. That is straight from DARE

You know what is funny? I’ve been offered free drugs a lot, mostly just weed. This is because the drug dealers I was friends with thought I was too depressed. Lol

u/redsnake15 Jan 17 '22

I've always loved this joke but for real everyone from friends to family have offered me drugs. (No my family has not offered me hard-core shit) but a good example is at 14 few friends started smoking or dipping being friendly they'd ask if I'd wanna try. As I got older it turned to shit like pot and once coke. I'll admit I'm that friend that offered younger friends free booze.

Slightly off topic in all honesty the best advice I got for saying no (aside from occasional drinking at small parties I didn't do anything as a teen) was saying "no thanks" from "the wizard of no" I saw when I was in like first grade. He made a interesting point if I remember it correctly "if they're really your friend they won't care" or something like that

u/Elliefish00 Jan 17 '22

I like how we knew nothing about drugs, not even what they were, then they came and told us the names, effects, what they look like,where to find dealers in town, etc. Like we would've had no idea of they hadn't TAUGHT US ALL ABOUT IT

u/Shitp0st_Supreme Jan 17 '22

I’ve been offered free weed a few times. Sometimes by strangers. When I worked at a mall, the manager of the restaurant next door offered me a hit of her joint. Sometimes I’ve been smoked out for giving folks a ride. Once a classmate just offered me some for fun.

u/spongeysquarepantis Jan 17 '22

In high school parking lots, out-of-school get-togethers

All the free vape, cigarettes, weed, and more you could ever want.

Not even being sarcastic.

u/Omny87 Jan 17 '22

I only had like, one encounter with someone offering me weed that was near identical to how DARE programs described them- I was in college and it was around 11PM when I was walking down the street to grab some soda from the convenience store. This guy stepped out from an alley in front of me- he looked younger than me, and he was dressed in a neon-green hoodie, a backwards baseball cap, and pajama pants with penguins on them.

He asked "hey, you lookin for some bud?"

Me, being a sheltered dumbass and thinking he was referring to Budweiser, just said "wut?"

"Y'know, a little..." and he made a gesture pretending to smoke a blunt.

"Sorry I don't have any cash on me see ya" I blurted out before speed walking around him and down the street. I never saw him again on the way back, or ever since.

u/indi-go-home Jan 17 '22

My ex's friend gave him free cocaine a few times! Now that same friend sells him crack. So find a friend that wants to restart their crack business in a new area.

u/TuckDezi Jan 17 '22

This joke is old and not accurate... People WILL give free drugs in an attempt to get you hooked... This happens a lot with things like heroin and meth.

u/Infamous_Lunchbox Jan 17 '22

Am I the only person on reddit who regularly got offered drugs at parties, concerts and raves for free? I'm not even that social, I just assume I look like a guy really needs to get high.

u/mousicle Jan 17 '22

Are you a pretty girl? I've seen so much free drugs offered to pretty girls over the years.

u/maxthunder5 Jan 17 '22

I know a few girls that have no idea how much drugs cost. No hate because it isn't their fault that guys keep supplying them.

u/canigetahiyyyaaaahh Jan 17 '22

Public universities. I worked at a bar and constantly had people offering me free drugs. Multiple guys handed me a pre-rolled joint in a little plastic tube at the end of the night that I smoked on my trip hauling the trash to the dumpster.

Work in the entertainment industry and you'll find drugs

Knew a kid in high school. He was on the wrong side of the ASD spectrum, the side where he was just a total asshole to anyone who tried to be his friend. The kid had a lot of money though and realized he could make "friends," by giving out free drugs. Backpack was filled in the mornings, empty in the evenings. I had homeroom with him 😜

That is an asshole, not autism.

u/bartonski Jan 17 '22

Right. He had asshole spectrum disorder. Not to be confused with autism spectrum disorder.

u/Educational-Candy-17 Jan 17 '22

I know several people on the spectrum who say mean rude things and then are genuinely confused at why people get upset about it. They do, however, try to learn what's appropriate and what isn't and how to approach things in a more tactful manner. Those who have come from less supportive environments might very well get fed up with trying when nothing they say is right and just do what they want.

How do you think the teachers cope

u/Considered_Dissent Jan 17 '22

I think the funniest thing about all that bullshit in middle school was that they used peer pressure to tell you how bad peer pressure was.

Looking back it pretty much boiled down to "peer pressure is amazing, as long as it's to indoctrinate you with all the shit that the teacher agrees with".

I think being told in 3rd grade about drugs is what started a lot of people on drugs and try them. Of all education to be taught, what drugs look like and how to take… ruined a lot of kid’s lives to later be adults. Proved DARE was more than a warning of drugs…

In middle school unfortunately. It's been in the news that a 13 year old just OD'd on fentanyl. I was a stoner all through highschool and my mid 20s, but I couldn't have found even dirt weed at my junior high school. I'm not saying it 100% wasn't there for sure, but it wasn't overt like it was in high school.

Go to a party and tell people you’ve never had the drug they are using. Most of the time you will get a free sample.

You are not hot enough to be offered free drugs. I'm beautiful and I can't pick up my morning coffee without someone surreptitiously slipping a dank nug into my flowing beard.

u/FallenSegull Jan 17 '22 edited Jan 17 '22

They were offered to me all the time in highschool

Though I think it’s just because I constantly refused free drugs so it became a challenge for the other kids to try and convince me

Also it was pretty much exclusively weed, which is barely illicit if we’re being honest. Except for one instance of pingas and a seperate incident of “cocaine” which turned out to be crushed nodoz (caffeine pills).

If you know the right people and happen to befriend those people. Often times you’ll get free shouts. It’s usually the kids you don’t expect.

Everywhere! most people do drugs. Most people are decent people. The trick is talking with random people and if they are cool you hangout. That's it juts talk and leave if you get uncomfortable.

u/DarthLift Jan 17 '22

I've been offered free drugs twice in my life. Once after my first car accident at 16 and I had to tell the guy "thanks for the offer, but cops are already on the way..." and the other time was straight out of a after school special. At a party where 3 dudes cornered me and literally used the line "we all did it, it's cool, and super fun" while they were all a couple bumps in on ketamine. Never got to have a fun free drugs experience though

Heroin and crack, primarily. I lived in the ghetto so the “threat” of street drugs was always around us.

In my belly!!!! But in all seriousness middle school drug education is ass hell I didn’t even have a health class but in high school that shit was on point from affects to how it interacted with your body they were listing drugs that I didn’t even know like dmt which I now know and am cool with but at the time I was like wtf the biggest problem in high school drug education is if the drug had 2 names they thought it was 2 drugs like dmt/ayahuasca
