/r/NotHowDrugsWork metrics (Sure, you've taken drugs before.)

Someone has smoked an entire joint and is vividly hallucinating purple monkeys? Your 12-year-old niece took a sip of whiskey and is now running around screaming at the top of her lungs? Your mother took an antibiotics pill and has been in a vegetative state for 3 months? Well you know where to post it! This sub is not for comedy even though it might come across that way sometimes. Think of it as the /r/ThatHappened of drugs.
