Why… love… [consciousness expansion]

Drugs are whatever the government says they are. And for a long time, the government has classified them in a deeply dishonest and cynical way. We call this absurdity “the drug war.” But here’s the good news (especially if you’re one of the groups victimized by it): The drug war is dying. 

One way to determine what a society really values is to look at the drugs it condones and condemns. And it’s awfully revealing that our society says bourbon and caffeine are good but somehow DMT or psilocybin are bad… the good news is that the… taboos created by the drug war are dying and the laws are starting to evolve, which raises the question: What comes next?
