When I was a kid I heard that the Beatles did acid and I wondered if they melted from it.

I thought drug stores sold drugs. I never understood how they could sell illegal drugs.

When I was in 1st grade a DARE officer came to school. He had a huge cabinet full of drugs and was telling the kids how theese were bad and you should never use any of them. I was looking in the cabnet and loudly proclaimed MY DADDY SMOKES cigrettes like that!!
The officers stared at me funny I didnt get it. I had no clue that A joint was not a regular cigrette.

I used to make sure the covers were pulled up over my mouth so that "bad guys" wouldn't come in at night and drop drugs in my mouth. Right, like they'd waste free drugs on some kid.

I used to believe that when you where stoned to death you would be made to smoke heaps of cones and die.

I was born in 1962. This meant that I was just beginning to become concious during the hippie era. I heard my mother go on about the horrors of LSD, and I wanted to know what it was, and how can you tell that someone is a person who takes it. Somehow I internalized that a person on LSD assumed the appearance of the swirly rainbows that one sees in an oil slick on top of a puddle in a parking lot. And that people who looked like this left trails behind them of colored light as they walked. I looked and looked to find people on LSD but never did find any. Not a one. Oh, well.

When I was growing up both of my parents smoked cigarettes, so I was familiar with the concept. When I was about four, I was outside playing in the yard and heard my mother yelling at my older brother. She was getting after him about "smoking grass". I, of course, plucked a bunch of it out of the ground and wondered to myself "now why would anybody want to do that?"

My mom and I used to play this game "stranger danger" and one of the questions was "What do you do if someone offers you a Marijuana cigarette?" Well since I knew that regular cigarettes got smaller when people put them in their mouths, I assumed that they bit off a bit of the end of it each time they put it in their mouths, so I responded with confidence: "DON'T EAT IT!!!"

I used to believe that the word drug referred only to illegal drugs like pot or crack. So one time when my mother referred to a certain medicine I needed to take as a drug, I was very shocked. This was soon cleared up.

My friends sister told us that junkies put thier needles into toilet paper in public loos to give people aids. I would always try to wait and went home with rather dirty knickers on more than one occasion, and continued to believe it until a rather embarrassingly late age!

When I was younger, and heard that people were on crack, I thought that meant they're buttcrack was on the front of their body, or they were sitting on a buttcrack. Only when I was seven did I realize that crack was a drug, from a friend.

My mom took me to see a screening of "The Wizard of Oz" on the local university campus in the early seventies, when I was about 8. During the movie, my mom said that people were smoking pot. I pictured people sucking on the spout of a teapot, not knowing the term. Had no idea it had anything to do with drugs.

I used to think marijuana cigarettes actually looked like pieces of chalk because I saw a picture of one in a book that had the paper folded over the tip.

As a 14 year old listening to "classic" Aerosmith albums I thought the line "sleeping late and smoking tea" from "Mama Kin" actually meant smoking tea leaves. Needless to say I spent many an afternoon rolling up my Mom's Orange Pekoe in looseleaf paper tring to catch a buzz!

I used to think "Drug Stores" sold pot, crack, coke, etc. And I always wondered why they weren't worried about having a big sign up that said "Drug Store"--like did they think the police wouldn't see the signs?

When I was little, I used to think that taking any kind of medicine if used when you didn't need it was like taking drugs. My friends once were sucking on cough drops, and since they weren't sick I thought they were doing drugs and would get addicted. Needless to say I was freaking out.

my grandmother had arthritis, and one time when i was visiting her she said something about needing to go to the pharmacy to get her drugs. i had never heard medicine referred to as "drugs" before, so i got really upset because i thought my grandma was some kind of druggie!

i used to think a "joint" you smoke was the same as the joints in your body...i couldn't figure out how you would get one of those out of your body, or how you would smoke it.
