Might this be an accurate assessment?
Thinking of Euc's thread on the WalMart meathead - got to me to wondering whether he (meathead) was, perhaps, on something? Maybe just steroids in his case but - more and more I tend to think that the majority of BG's are - on - something.
I accept too there is just plain evil in some BG's but overall, much of what I see, read, and hear about does lead me to believe that ''stuff'' is behind a lot of BG actions, the majority? - perhaps the most obvious conclusion in many cases, is simply that they want your money because they ''need'' more stuff. Most unlikely too there are many holding down (dirty word coming) - work!!!!
What then can we say then about the effects of various dopes?? Be interested to hear your views.
As I see it - weed will mainly make guys more or less inebriated, spaced out, whatever. Bit like alcohol? Accentuated risk? Maybe depends on underlying psyche?
Cocaine ... hmmm - maybe not an aggression drug but sure as heck, drives them to get more - any which way, any how.
Smack? - not sure here - again that evil dependence-driven urge to finance the next hit - but I imagine those guys will be less of a threat re speed etc.
PCP? - serious I seem to remember - hard to stop - they will be out to do - whatever - at all costs and to hell with consequences.
Meth? - probably they will be illogical, and again spaced out but - danger factor? Not sure.
The steroids? - I hear much about the effects being to promote aggression - true?
Have I left out anything?
Bottom line the way I think is - chances are if we do come up against an inescapable BG scenario, we'd best assume they are not in the normal sense of the word ''compos mentis'' and assume that rational discussion is possibly not much use - plus if they escalate any threat then we have to probably achieve more than one hit for sure.
Enough ramble - over to you!
