Well, if you take them rarely, they'll affect you much more strongly, and the come-down period will probably be a little harder.
So if you're used to taking uppers all the time, you'll think you're feelin' fine. But no, it's not really any less dangerous as long as you're taking a reasonable amount.
(But you do build up a tolerance, so his regular dose would probably hurt a first-timer. This does not validate his point.)
