Damn it Jason, no SHAME, none at all. Do Not Feel Ashamed because the
prohibitionist have turned you into a criminal for using dope. It isn't a
"real" crime- although some of the things I myself have done to get dope in
the past were "real" crimes, (for which I sometimes still, even years later,
feel shame for) I myself feel no shame at all for my using dope- none.
Peace and love to all, (and that damn it Jason was emphatic, not angry or
yelling, promise.)
