It's hard to do well on a quiz where the correct answers aren't always present...

this wuz the most amazing iq test i have ever ever ever tried! sweeeeeeet! best day ever!

drugs do bad stuff nobody shud take them dont be a retard stay drug free

i think that this test is awesome because not only do you find out about how you see yourself and drugs but it teaches you about them!!!

This is the great idea test I have ever known,this test will help you to aware how much drugs are exposing your body that you never think about. It will be a warn for you to decide what you need to do to avoid it from now.

On the second question...
maybe 14% of drivers injured or killed in traffic accidents tested positive for marijuana because over 14% of people use it...ever think of that
also, marijuana stays in your system much longer than other drugs, there could have been something else in someone's body, but gone by the time you test...

also, how does a spider web prove anything

Your readers may or may not be aware that at present there is no cure for HIV infection and AIDS. However, with the combined use of new antiviral drugs (known as combination therapy) as well as drugs to prevent opportunistic infections, many people with HIV infection and AIDS have extended and improved the quality of their lives and delayed the progress of HIV infection to AIDS. These drugs can cause many side effects that require switching to another drug or simply desisting using them. In addition, the combination therapy involves taking huge amounts of pills in complex structures. These drugs are very expensive and not available to many people in industrialized countries as well as in many parts of the world, where the majority of individuals with HIV infection and AIDS reside.

Here are some very pointed and relevant AIDS quotes [commercial link removed]:
"And the danger is - and it's happening - is we're seeing an incredibly big rise amongst young gay people, young heterosexual people as far as catching HIV, which is, you know, in an educated country like this or in Britain, it's frightening."

"And there's no guarantee that if you get HIV and you take these triple therapies, or whatever comes along next, that they're going to be successful for you."
Elton John

I tell you, it's funny because the only time I think about HIV is when I have to take my medicine twice a day.
Magic Johnson

HIV does not make people dangerous to know, so you can shake their hands and give them a hug: Heaven knows they need it.
Princess Diana

This is very sad.I request researchers for inventing alternative way and now use of drugs should be limited .
