    i think we should get a merit for overdosing on every single drug

    But then that merit would be impossible for some people who want the drug free gym because of the low overdose rate and impossible merits are not good to have

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

    being drug free sucks ass n theres a dozen merits for drugs as it is. being drug free hurts everything except your wallet n edu, makes you a burden to every warring faction n destroys ur growth, that drug free gym doesn't even come close to compensating for the energy you've lost among many other things. i feel no pity for ppl that make poor decisions long term.

    cmon.... adding 1 more slight disadvantage to the laundry list of problems facing drug free players really isn't a good argument, it's like saying we shouldn't make glass bottles shatterproof  cus 1 in a million ppl get their hands stuck in em(random example). it benefits the vast majority therefore it's a good idea.

    I actually don't agree with this,

    The only reason I feel there is an achievement for overdosing on weed is because it is very hard to do,

    With everything else they are fairly common and you are just giving people loads of free merits with is in a sense devaluing them.

    Do you know why they added overdose award for cannabis? Because the chance of overdosing on cannabis is very low. 

    You cannot say the same with other drugs, and since many people have already overdosed on other drugs, which I doubt were recorded "specifically", there is an issue of fairness.

    That and only 3-4 drugs (LSD,Ecstacy and Xanax , maybe even vicodin a bit) are commonly used, so overdoing on others would require to not use drugs for training , which actually puts drug users at an disadvantage.

    There's already an award for overdosing on the hardest drug to have one on (cannabis) - overdosing on cannabis would still be the roadblock for pretty much everybody trying to get the new award being suggested here, so I don't know if this additional overdosing award is really needed.

    I like apples doo doo doo...

    The idea isn't bad, but an inflation of merits would shift the balance of the game. That's 8-9 merits we're talking about - easy as he*l too.

    One of each drug may be a bit too much, but I'd vote for a '100 times OD'd' award. And maybe one for 100x rehab too.

    Disagree: It's easy to OD on all of the other drugs - The reason Cannabis OD is special is because it's so hard to do

    i've nearly received the ketamine merit n haven't od'ed so, rly it wouldn't b that easy n yea cannabis would b the obstacle for most but i just feel like the effort to overdose on all of em weed included is merit worthy, spaced out is 1 of the games hardest achievements  n maybe an additional award for taking 1k-20k cannabis n oding on every other drug is justified.
