Drugs are like sexuality, religion and politics. I don't care what behind-the-scenes influence they have on your music as long as you don't sing about them in every verse.

Well put. I hate artists who brag about chemical dependency, though when they capture the feel of being on drugs perfectly it draws me in a lot. It really comes down to originality.

But yeah this new wave of stoner rap (wiz khalifa, mac miller, smoke dza, currensy for the most part) is getting real cliche.

I'll take it over juggalo's reppin shasta or straight edge lyrics tho

As long as you use and control the drugs to your benefit verses "letting the drugs control you". I guess it is OK (for certain artist/people of course).

ditto

i never cared about the personal lives of the artists and i don't give a fine f**k what they do after their performances. so if they're into drugs and it inspires them, that's their deal not mine.

I might also add, I personally prefer getting "High" on the music itself verses drugs.

What, if any, drugs do you/have you taken to what genre of music, why did you take them, if you think any genres of music have had drug use change over time etc please let me know your views.

Also if you know of any other online forums I should ask these questions to please let me know. If you have anything else to add just contact me by my email address below.

Cheers, Sarah.

the only music that i know which is most of the time associated with drugs is rap music. personally, i think of it as kind of degrading to the music. sending out wrong messages and all. but there's still some decent rap songs out there though.
