However, nothing referenced herein is illegal everywhere today, and it is only recently that most of these relatively harmless activities have been outlawed. To the best of my knowledge, I am not breaking any laws by compiling and publishing this information. If I am indeed violating any laws in doing so, those laws are unconstitutional, as they blatantly violate my rights as an individual and a citizen of this country. I look forward to a more enlightened time when peaceful, honest people who seek to alter their state of consciousness as they choose, or prescribe their own medicines are free from the whims of greedy, self-serving politicians, followers of puritanical gods, and their overzealous police. During such a time of freedom and tolerance, the late 18th to early 20th century, the US grew from an oppressed colony to a major world power. However, most people have forgotten that their hard-won freedoms must be constantly guarded, and we have once again become a nation oppressed by an increasingly totalitarian and theocratic state. In this century the Inquisition has condemned many groups of heretics: drinkers, cocaine crazed negroes, dope smoking mexicans, japanese, communists, homosexuals, drug users, hippies, punks, D&D players, Satanists and drunk drivers. We've filled our jails with them, but still they are spreading chaos and anarchy and destroying the American Way of Life(TM) everywhere we look. It is my hope that the individuals who challenge the Inquisition can do so in an informed and intelligent way and thus avoid most of the arbitrary risks our short-sighted rulers have imposed upon us through their absurd, hypocritical drug laws. Alas, I fear that it may take another revolution to break the power of the Inquisition. A few of these books may be hard to locate, especially those published by Loompanics and TCA. Both companies are willing to do business by mail, their addresses are: Loompanics Unlimited; P.O Box 1197; Port Townsend, WA 98368 and The Twentieth Century Alchemist; P.O Box 1684; Manhattan Beach, CA 90266. Catalogs were $5 and $1 respectively, or free with order, last time i checked. The truly paranoid may wish to use a pseudonym and/or maildrop when ordering certain titles. Comments, corrections, suggestions and submissions are welcome. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.  unfortunately, not everyone was free or tolerated, but even those who were not probably could not have done better elsewhere in the world. hopefully, we can learn from our mistakes, rather than repeating them with minor variations. *** Subject: References the following are excellent references for anyone with a serious interest in the chemistry, pharmacology, or botany of any given recreational substance.

Many psychoactive plants are even legal to grow; the safest and most popular ones have, of course been banned.

Sinsemilla Tips *** Subject: Manufacture this topic is included mostly for completeness, and as an attempt to combat some of the ignorance i have seen on the net with regard to drug recipes. drug manufacture is *very* serious business, for both legal and safety reasons. it is one of the best ways i can think of to wind up poisoned, blown up, or in jail for a really long time. do not even consider it unless you have *lots* of privacy, and a good working background in organic chemistry and lab techniques. avoid the recipes in the anarchist's cookbook - most of them don't work, some are deadly.
