Jon jon jon. Lets not get carried away lol. Im not tryin to bash you at all. And im not bashin psychadelics in particular. Im bashin drugs! I smoke pot and you know what. Ive realized lately its pretty f'in stupid. Its a complete waste of money. I mean I spend at least 50 a week on it and for what? I dont even really get high anymore. Just lazy. And to say the dead used psychadelics religiously throughout all their years is ridiculous lol. After pretty much the 60's maybe 72 at latest everyone but Jerry stopped usin. Now if you wanna say Jerry and no one else in the band used drugs in general religiously that is obvious. But psychadelics no. He even says in interviews he still did it to the day he died but on occasion. I see drugs as one experience and a concert as another. People shouldnt automatically link the two and think thats the way its supposed to be. But hey you wanna get dosed up at your next show thats fine. Just dont come up to me lol.
It annoys me when I hear the first word to come to mind is "drugs" when hey hear the name Grateful Dead, or "you have to be on something to enjoy their music." I take a big offense. I'm not directing this at anyone here, this is just what I've expirienced.
They here how "complex" some of their music is and automatically assume since they don't like it, I must be on drugs to enjoy it. Pisses me off!
