DMT done right (with or without marijuana) will not cause you to be "pretty messed up." DMT done right (with or without marijuana) will not necessarily "not be a good experience." I've commented on it before, but you certainly seem to have a pretty hearty dislike for non-marijuana drugs, and that's perfectly fine, I can sympathize and recognize your right to say so. But honestly? I'd love to have MJ+OT drugs talked about in a harm-reduction manner without a lot of the sensationalist stories or the "you have deeper issues" name calling, because it just isn't true. Can you have a bad trip on DMT, with or without marijuana involved? Absolutely. But you can also have an absolutely wretched time using just MJ, and you can also have an extremely wonderful, profoundly positive life-changing time using DMT as well. Maybe his set and setting was wrong, but innumerable people have or still do use DMT, possibly in conjunction with weed, and are fine. The drug isn't the problem here. I would say exactly the opposite. He's looking for answers and help before trying it, and I say that's very responsible. I spend hours and hours (days even) reading places like Bluelight and Erowid before I try any drug, and I feel that's no different than asking about a specific combo or the like. In the spirit of harm-reduction, asking about weed and another drug while on a marijuana forum with a diverse collection of posters (ranging from never tried anything to full blown psychonauts) before just jumping in shows a pretty good deal of intelligence and foresight, in my opinion.
