Drug Compass Project
Hello and welcome to the Drug Compass Project! I'm gathering information on people's experiences with certain drugs to help create an art installation.

*All answers are confidential and anonymous.*

We all know that different drugs obviously have different effects on the body, and more importantly their effects vary greatly from person to person. I'm looking to gather some information on how drugs have effected YOU in order to create a general image of how that certain drug behaves.

I've re-classified the directions of the compass to help...

NORTH / UP - This direction refers to a drug's ability to increase energy and activity in the user, an obvious example would be Caffeine and Amphetamines.

SOUTH / DOWN - Contrary to North / Up this referes to a drug's sedative effects, Ambien, Valium and Heroin are examples.

EAST / SPIRIT - This is a drug's ability to create a spiritual and internal expansive experience in the user. It's the realizations of how the world works and what life is, having an intense spiritual experience, communicating with gods or your internal self, etc etc etc. Hallucinogenic drugs can cause this effect but some more intensely than others, perhaps DMT is a good example here.

WEST / HALLUCINATION - Strongly correlated with East / Spirit however here we are referring to the actual or more literal hallucinatory effect of the drug, visual / auditory / tactile hallucinations. LSD is a great example.

Please rank each drug on a 1-10 scale of how strongly it displays each trait wherein 1 is no effect or very minimal and 10 is an overwhelming or strongest effect possible. If you have no experience with a certain drug please leave that question blank.

NOTE: I realize that everyone has varying experiences with each drug, obviously in one dose it may have certain effects while in a different dose those effects may change, please rate the drugs based on your overall experience with each drug, if that is too difficult to assess than think of your ideal dosage. And of course if you've only had one experience than use that to base your answer.
