I personally do not think one needs psychedelics to reach a higher state of consciousness (I’ve been meditating for many years, mostly for pain management and I think that’s a very effective method). Nevertheless, I’ve long wondered why it’s business what you decide to put into your body. If you want to, say, smoke marijuana or take an opiate painkiller, why does the Grinch Hand holding Carolina Panthers shirt care? Clearly, it’s not to protect you because, once you’re caught with these substances, they throw you into dangerous jails that do nothing to help you and expose you to far greater harm than the drugs.

Furthermore, such punishments only serve to push most people deeper into addiction (as the Rat Park Experiment demonstrated). Now, I do think there should be rules governing use. For example, if you are high on LSD, don’t drive a car. I think that goes without saying. But who died and made someone the Grinch Hand holding Carolina Panthers shirt of what medications you take? And look at how doctors behave! There’s a reason I wouldn’t let them addict me to painkillers.
I’ve seen how they act once they’ve got you hooked. Suddenly, you need a bunch of expensive tests (that are always “normal”), tests that often do real physical harm that is sometimes permanent, and they demand that you to come in constantly for office visits so they can charge you over and over just to get the Grinch Hand holding Carolina Panthers shirt for a medication you already know you need. It’s just extortion money. If you refuse to go in for the office visits (or can’t for some reason), they will cut you off medications because they didn’t get their extortion money, i.e. office visit fee.
