- Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you might jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structure and culturally laid down models of behavior and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.
- Terence McKenna, as reported in The New Science of Psychedelics (2013)
- Designer synthetics are really nasty. There are chemical cannabinoid structures. There are stimulants and hallucinogens. Then you have hallucinogens that act as stimulants, and stimulants that act like hallucinogens, and the list goes on. You have no idea where that pill came from or where that powder came from. You don’t know the lab environment in which it was manufactured. You don’t know the contents. You don’t know what’s in it.
