Were not saying you should do drugs, were just saying: Drugs. 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.

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.

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.
