Cocaine... It's not physically addictive, it's too expensive for a teenager to buy enough to do any damage, it's short acting and it's so stomped on in this country it wouldn't be strong enough to do much damage

No drugs. Thank god I will never have to choose!
I know of a couple of guys who had severe psychotic breakdowns after using pot so that's definitely something I'll be warning my children about.

I disagree about pot being a gateway drug. I know many pot smokers and none of them are on anything else except tobacco. And it does have medical uses as well. I would hate it but I still put pot on a lesser scale to party drugs, heroin and even alcohol since it was grog and that fuelled every incidence of DV that my sisters had to endure.
But I do agree with a PP who said that effects are vastly different for everyone and therefore impossible to generalise with.

Probably cigarettes as they are not illegal.
It's not just the negative health effects of talking drugs, it's actively disregarding the law and then possibly becoming addicted so the person then is compelled to regularly break the law to maintain their habit.

As someone who has quite a lot of experience with a variety of drugs i'd have to say definitely NOT pot as I think it can be very addictive and quite an unpleasant culture around it. Possibly ecstasy would be the one I would say has done the least harm to ME but I wouldn't want my kids taking that either. I suppose I can't choose drinking alcohol responsibly?

Mmm I don't really have an answer because I can't even comprehend my boys being teenagers yet ( head still in sand)...
but dh tried pot once in his life and had a n anxiety attack afterwards, he now has severe anxiety and believes that one session of smoking pot as a teenage did that to him..

I'd say MDMA - the pure stuff, not cut with anything to make ecstasy tablets.
Or magic mushrooms. The effects are pretty short term, and the nauseating feeling you get after taking them (but before it kicks in) makes you not want to take heaps.
