->'''[[ReformedCriminal Weaver]]''': I always hated the speeches when I was in school, the preaching in auditoriums, the one-note message. Stuff like saying ''drugs are bad.'' Itís wrong. Drugs are fantastic. People wouldnít do them if they werenít. They make you feel good, make your day brighter, give you energy-
->'''Mrs. Yamada''': ''(Warningly)'' Weaver.
->'''Weaver''': -until they donít. People hear the message that drugs are bad, that theyíll ruin your life if you do them once. And then you find out that isnít exactly true because your friends did it and turned out okay, or you wind up trying something and youíre fine. So you try them, try them again. It isnít a mind-shattering moment of horrible when you try that first drug. Or so I hear. Itís subtle, it creeps up on you, and you never really get a good, convincing reason to stop before it ruins your life beyond comprehension. I never went down that road, but I knew a fair number of people who did. People who worked for me, [[FantasticAesop when I was a supervillain.]]

->''"Drugs pull you down and shut the lid on life. Pot opens everything up. All the anxieties, the creepy crawly blues, it all just drifts away and you can slowly remember what it feels like to be alive. Even more importantly, you can take a step back from the crap that's flying and see what really is important, which of the many things in your life really deserves worrying about. Not much!"''

->''"Happy, self-confident men do not seek to get stoned. Drug addiction is the attempt to obliterate one's consciousness, the quest for a deliberately-induced insanity. As such, it is so obscene and evil that any doubt about the moral character of its practitioners is itself an obscenity."''

->''"We are a drug culture already. Sleeping pills, aspirins, the nightcap that too often becomes an [[InVinoVeritas Indian war bonnet]]. Ideally, reality should be so interesting that we donít need tranquilizers and stimulants. But since there are too many people in the world and not enough for them to do ó certainly very little that is interesting ó the American majority serve their 40 hours a week in order to stun themselves with beer, television, whatever, come the weekend.

Yay, cocaine! ...throughout the adventure, the cocaine never causes him a single problem -- the only problems in his life are caused by alcohol, and the stodgy authority figures trying to stop him from doing cocaine.

->''"My strong suspicion, although I don't now how to prove it, is that the reason is that marijuana's a weed, you can grow it in your backyard, so there's nobody who would make any money off it if it were legal. Tobacco requires extensive capital inputs and technology, and it can be monopolized, so there are people who can make a ton of money off it. I don't really see the difference between the two, frankly--except that tobacco's far more lethal and far more addictive."''
