Despite overwhelming evidence suggesting a low likelihood of abuse and lack of long term harm from non-regular use, most are deemed dangerous by the government. The US army once gave LSD(lysergic acid diethylamide) to someone unaware and the person ended up jumping out of a window. The US government deems that dangerous. However there are drugs that are legal. For example Salvia, Blue Lotus, and a bunch of drugs found in some cactus are legal in the US for the most part. If you get into these legal drugs make sure that they are legal where you live, laws can vary from state to state in the US. If you disagree with laws then do all you can to get them changed, There are other people that think the same thing.
