Drugs such a weed , meth , ect. can cause your voices to be repititious and rude.. the voices tend to punish people that do illegal drugs.. your thoughts if you're around another voice hearer are most likely being heard.((If you believe in that sort of thing.)) It just makes your thoughts louder, more prevelant.. and annoying.. the voices signal out people who do drugs.

If you quit doing drugs the balance is restored eventually.. usually they'll bother you each and everytime you do an illegal drug , until you fall asleep...then you're reset for the next day.

The voicething is a direct result of my misspent time in South America smoking a hell of a lot of crack .
Haven’t touched the stuff for 15 years but the shit hasn’t forgotten me .

Mixed reviews about this. It all depends on the amount of anxiety someone has when using. Some people use weed for anxiety.

It takes a while but it changes you mind and thoughts. Perhaps the brain biochemistry is unbalanced. But don’t let them take you on a trip. Fight to stay in your best picture of reality until help comes. Pot goes to unreal and off balance place for some people and drugs. Not fun. Can now only make you worse off.

an illegal drug ,
What does the legal status have to do with it? Alcohol can do it too, as I've learned, and some drugs have different legal statuses depending where you live. Weed became legal in Canada not so long ago. I doubt that changed the effects it has on the user, except to have silly moralists not bother them as much.

The legal status in my mind was the conflict.. just speaking from my own experiences and the experiences of others that also had the same issues.. we spoke about it and decided it was illegal drugs.. just from what we experienced at the time.

Following the law is just the best policy in my opinion.

But when I said avoid illegal drugs I'm speaking from a United States Perspective also... so it's easier to group the dos and donts with United States Law and regulations from my perspective.. most of the drugs that are illegal here can cause Hallucinations , or psychosis.

Yeah, I see. There's a reason many are illegal, though booze has ruined many lives as well. You know, I was reading something or watching a video, and the thrust was that if sugar was held to current FDA standards, it would not be approved. It would be banned. Pretty crazy. Of course it's not dangerous in small amounts. There's the saying, "the dose makes the poison." Globally the overconsumption of sugar has caused serious issues.
