OK, PAULA, you filthy lying piece of crap. If you are so proud of your words, then REGISTER, you filthy coward. That way you won't be accused of using fake names every 5 minutes. OOPS, I guess that stops YOU, doesn't it, LIAR?

But on a more serious note..... it is a common sense study. People tend to lower their inhibitions when under the influence of most drugs, including alcohol and meth. And sad reality is that many will be willing to do more in order to get their fix (pnp parties, prostitute themselves for cash/drugs, etc).
The risk is for any user.

I wonder if anyone has ever tried to correlate that gene that seems to affect thrill-seeking behaviour with sexual orientation? It seems the gay community has awful lot of druggies. Of course, it could be environmental and social factors only.

Hmmm - how many drive-by shootings and gang wars are happening in the "druggie" gay communities?

Little, because gay middle class young people are consumers and not sellers.

The tendency to thow the baby out with the bathwater is a common overshoot in the coming out process.
