      I reckon if I ever combined psychedelics with the fine game of table tennis there is a fair chance that I'd have one of those 'Wow man! I've wasted far too much of my life watching a small plastic ball bounce when there's so much amazing beauty outside in the world' type moments followed by me giving away my bat to the nearest EJ and going skinny-dipping in the stream behind our club.

      Have you ever seen this substance in the blood of Champions? It seems to me that marijuana should not be contained in the blood because this is already an unfair competition. Everyone has the right to treat their stress exactly as it is more convenient and effective for them. For me personally, weed and cigarettes are also a great anti-stress and a way to relieve stress after a long and difficult day, and this helps me a lot https://piff.ca which has been offering only a quality product for quite some time, and I've never thought about quitting Smoking. For me, cigarettes don't have the same special effect as they used to, but this year, weed showed a different side, and I literally fell in love

      Good on ye buddy. Why would we want to make "connections" with a little white ball when we can connect to the whole universe ?
      But then again : "the whole universe might well be in this very little white ball"

      Search :

      WADA list of banned substances. Cannibinoids are banned in competition, but not out of competition except for cannibidiol which is ok. Same with opiates. Things like LSD and psilocybin are not mentioned.

      https://www.wada-ama.org/en/content/what-is-prohibited

      https://www.wada-ama.org/sites/defau...ted_list_0.pdf

      Some performance enhancing drugs are banned at any time like EPO or testosterone. The list is very long..

      I'm trying to imagine playing a serious match on acid.

      Performance would suffer!

      I remember in a County (=State) championship, the two finalists in the over 40s had to put their pints under the table for the match. They also took a drink between games.

      But if you're on your way to spike my diet Pink Lucozade in hope of getting a free bat out it, it won't be worth the bus fare up from Bristol. But if you're looking for a nice club with a scenic stream behind it suitable for skinny-dipping, Edinburgh could be a possible destination.

      The Netherlands have a tolerant approach to the drug abuse of soft drugs
      Hard drugs as cocaine, LSD, morphine, heroin are forbidden

      I doubt that the use of narcotic drugs can significantly affect the result in table tennis. Except to increase concentration and reaction. In general, drug use is a sign of an athlete's (just a person's) dissatisfaction with his or her life - there is a desire to have this pleasure artificially.

      I was just wondering if Dutch consider alcohol and tobacco to be soft drugs also ?

      I ask because I wondered if are you allowed to be drunk and play a table tennis match in a proper tournament ?

      If yes , how drunk ? I heard some players play better the more they drink but few others play much worse even if they take a sip of alcohol.

      It also looks like some players will be drastically affected by even second hand exposure to speed glue or boosters, while maybe few others who play much better if they sniff a lot of glue before a match (not necessarily reglue the rubber itself)

      I knew a player who played much better if he sniffed some cocaine. He actually measured his league performance on this. Couple of times he could could not find his drug dealer and came sober & his results were much worse. Of course I am of course not recommending this anyone
