Eventually technological advancement comes to every profession even if that profession is just burn-out, hippy, or full-time junkie.
Its been a long time coming, but apparently science has finally gotten the message and realized that even drug abuse can be made better, faster, and stronger. With that in mind, here are some new, readily available drugs that seem more like science fiction than pharmaceutical fact. Disclaimer: Now, we want to be clear here; were not condoning illegal drug use in any way. That would be incredibly irresponsible, even for a website that sends death letters to pre-teens, actively tries to fuck the vice presidential candidate, and vandalizes Mexican newspapers with cocks employs DOB. Global Commission Calls Drug War A Failure - Business News - Portfolio.com.
The drug war has failed.
That’s the abbreviated conclusion of a report released today by an international commission studying drug policy. And if governments actually listen to the recommendations of the Global Commission on Drug Policy, resourceful entrepreneurs could find some high opportunities. The 19-member panel that offered its verdict on the fight against illegal drugs is no hippie operation. It's members include former U.N. chief Kofi Annan; entrepreneur Richard Branson; former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker; former Secretary of State George Schultz; and former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo.
Branson funded the group, along with George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, the Instituto Fernando Henrique Cardoso, and the Centro Edelstein de Pesquisas Sociais in Brazil. 9 Stages of an Acid Trip.

"The Perfect Addiction: An Experience with Methamphetamine (ID 43655)". Erowid.org. Jun 20, 2006. erowid.org/exp/43655 I am a chemist. I have synthesized, extracted and tried many drugs. I don't mention this because I want to show off, but rather to convey that I am not a careless person, and that I have always taken precautions to assure my safety. As a teenager I had been prescribed Dexedrine (amphetamine) for attention deficit disorder, and experimented with crushing and snorting the tablets. Flash forward to my mid-20's. Every once in a while, when the chemistry that I am *supposed* to be doing isn't going well, I cheer myself up with an easy 'extracurricular' project. One lazy weekend I made about 25 g of pristine methamphetamine HCl, gave half to my friend (who had been waiting patiently the whole time), and put my half into a jar and forgot about it for almost a year. Experience Vaults: Drug War Interrogation - Surviving Law Enforcement Interrogations.
As a former US Army Intelligence Interrogator (they call 'em HUMINT Collectors now...), I would like to provide a few tips for surviving a law enforcement interrogation, and relate one of my experiences on the 'wrong end' of a law enforcement interrogation.
First of all, nothing can prepare you for a military interrogation, and it is common knowledge, even expected, that well-trained soldiers may crack under the pressure of a fairly tame military interrogation. That said, law enforcement interrogations work under the same basic principals as military interrogations, but they are limited with regards to the level and intensity of physical interactions between police and suspects, and the fact that law enforcement must give you a lawyer eventually, and must at least appear superficially to be respecting a suspect's civil liberties. Anyway, it wasn't until I got to the local police station that the fun began. Psychoactive Vaults. 10 Scientific and Technological Visionaries Who Experimented With Drugs - StumbleUpon.
We evolved along with, and because of, our diet. There weren't any classifications of "illegal drugs" back then, and these things flourish in all sorts of conditions in the wild - it's hard not to imagine at least occasional consumption. Considering mankind's predilection to experimenting with consciousness, along with the unique effects of these substances (including euphoria), it was probably more than occasional.
If these fungi were part of a diet over time, they'd likely have some effect on our development. At the very least, to assume that these type of natural and prolific plants/substances had no part in our evolution would seem foolish. I just love the idea of psychoactive botanicals spurring hominid consciousness to a higher quantum state — the booster shot needed to make that leap forward in intelligence.
