'I was lying motionless on the couch, under a protective throw that had become important to me, when Lily came over and started talking. She played with my hair while she talked, and I tried to think up one grammatical sentence that would indicate that I was still a human being. The only recognizable thought among the debris in my mind, however, was the sudden overpowering desire to have sex, and this wasn’t even a thought as such. If I had been in any state to speak, let alone make an argument, I would have brought a Christian martyr’s passion to the task of getting Lily receptive, but all I managed to say, interrupting her arbitrarily to say it, was “I’m very stoned.” ' - www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/07/21/wagner-in-the-desert

"We know that cocaine, MDMA, mephedrone and LSD can end up damaging people and some can become addictive"

LSD is addictive and damaging?

Bad terminology? I'd agree that any psychoactives can be addictive in a psychological sense - i.e. habit forming. Depressed, isolated people, like the subject of this article, can and do become dependent; too much time out of your head is damaging, end of story.

Interesting; "When digested, A1 beta-casein (but not the A2 variety) releases beta-casomorphin7 (BCM7), an opioid with a structure similar to that of morphine." - m.motherjones.com/environment/2014/03/a1-milk-a2-milk-america
