Well, you may disagree that meditation is a drug, but what about the “serious” and “addictive” nature of it that Nikhil mentioned in his essay? I'd argue that this is a perfect description of the commitment it requires. It's hard to deny that meditation requires sustained effort over time - that's why Nikhil was right to be wary! Plus, all the evidence suggests its positive effects on overall mental and physical health - that hardly sounds like something to be "UrRong" about.
