You brain is on drugs right now... are "qualitatively worse" yet? Before criticize 'drugs' people should first define what is 'drugs'. Everything you ingest is a drug.
Now, of course, the common sense is drugs like meth and heroin. I don't think it's objectively bad, it's just the use you give them. If you load yourself every day with tons of meth of course it will be bad. But if you use it the right way it could be a very powerful drug.
Not wanting to go on the Godwin's law, but Hitler injected meth everyday (not that he's an example of a person). There's also the hypothesis that many of the soldiers that died on URSS winter wouldn't have died if the drug D-IX was ready at the time:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-IX
Drugs are not bad, people just don't know how to use them.
ps. I can't tell if you're serious or not. I guess that's the Poe's law thing:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poe%27s_law
