I think I was the only kid to come out of the program who truly believed the _Reefer Madness_-esque lies we were force-fed about relatively benign drugs like pot.

Truth is pot is no worse -and no better- than alcohol.

Exactly.  So I don't drink.

Actually, Taiwan beer is nice.  I never had beer when I was young so it
probably tastes like a light beer.  But beer in the Philippines is very
strong: my wife will drink two bottles at a party and almost pass out.
Me, I don't touch the stuff.
