We have turned Bluelight to black today, February 12, as a means of recognizing the passing of Ryan Haight, AKA "Quicksilver" of our Bluelight community. In 2001, Bluelight lost a dear a friend. Few of our current members will remember Ryan. He was an extraordinary young man by all counts. An honors student with an intellectual curiosity about the world and, perhaps most memorably, Ryan was a wonderful person and friend. Ryan was found dead the morning of February 12th from an overdose of prescription pain medication.
Quicksilver's death was not the first loss this community has suffered, nor was it our last. Back in 2001, the phrase "Opiate Epidemic" had not yet entered the lexicon of mainstream America. Indeed, in the same year the Joint Commission, a nonprofit organization responsible for accrediting hospitals, began promoting the now infamous 0-10 pain scale. In 2001 the Joint Commission and Purdue (The makers of Oxycontin) also collaborated on a guide...
The Bluelight community invites you to join us in our seasonal Festivus forum which is now open. It will remain open until January 12, 2019 (Bluelight Standard Time). Seasons Greetings to all friends and family, and we'll see you there!
We have been around since 1999-ish, and as such, we have collected over time some epic threads - some timeliness, some capturing the moment exceptionally well. We take these most awesome threads from the various forums and put them in a special place we call Best of Bluelight. For November we will be featuring some of this forum's most popular threads. Who knows, maybe someday one of your threads will be there as well!
We will highlight other gems here in the feature forum thread.
Let's start off with one of the most well known topics of the drug-related internet: Can you fax acid?
Bluelight has so much to offer! This month we're focusing on our Sports and gaming forum!!
S&G is a laidback place to talk with other gamers and sports fans. We of course have most of the major topics covered, but you can find threads on just about anything here. Participation is everything around here, so if you have an idea (or just want to shoot the shit) about an underrepresented subject...go for it!
The busy season is just getting underway on S&G.
Calling all Bluelight NFL fans! Head on over to Sports and Gaming and check out their NFL thread. Lots of great discussion on this year's season and an ongoing Pick'em contest[/ulr]!
But it's not just sports, there's gamers at play as well. Check out the PC Gamers Whatcha playin thread, as well as other platform discussions.
Sports change with the seasons, and each new game launched is discussed in depth by members. Come join the fun, and say hello to the forum mods of D's and...
The Wiki Forum Is Now Officially Closed
The BL wiki started with good intentions, but ultimately people stopped contributing and the forum became a conduit for spam and basic drug questions. As such, it is now closed.
Should we ever find volunteers who have the ambition, time and knowledge to make a concerted effort to continue it, then perhaps it will be given another chance.
Thanks on behalf of everyone to the people who contributed so much quality content. If you ever see viable means to revive it, then I suggest you get in touch.
Cannabis Discussion (CD) is dedicated to the discussion of cannabis and is also the official home to synthetic cannabinoid discussion. Intelligent discussion of both basic and advanced cannabis related topics is encouraged. However, please resist the urge to post discussions like "Best Munchies" or "Best music to listen to while stoned", discussions like that are best suited for Drug Culture. How ever we do have a great social thread where your free to tell us what you're snacking on while your smoking, or if you just want to say "whats up mannnnnn?" Check it out: CD Social
If it's your first time to CD I recommend you check out our wonderful CD Directory! Filled with links to all our current Mega Threads and other threads of interest. Here in CD we like to keep things organized, cause when you're stoned its hard to find stuff. To do that we have a collection of Mega Threads with the prefix [MEGA] so there is no missing them. We ask that before you start a new thread, check to...
Global Drug Survey has partnered with Bluelight to create a sample of people who reported using Bluelight in the last 7 days.

Forum Focus Month Jan/Feb 2018: Come Discuss Science & Film!
This is a new way of trying to promote lesser used (and often once thriving) sub-forums here on bluelight: forum focus months. Basically the idea is to try and give certain forums a bit of steam by cataloguing and encouraging use in some of their interesting and engaging threads.
For January/February, the forums will be Science & Technology and Film & Television.
Both forums have seen quite an upsurge in posts recently, and we'd like to promote both of them.
Science & Technology Active Threads Jan/Feb 2018:
Come and discuss science stuff in the following threads:
