Breaking News:ICC Prosecutor Announces Request to Authorize Philippines Investigation

Initiatives 2020 -- Legalization Sweep, Psychedelic Sweep, Medical Marijuana, Decrim

Before Drug War Chronicle writer Phil Smith turned in for the night yesterday, marijuana legalization initiatives had passed in New Jersey and Arizona. Oregon had decriminalized all drugs, and legalized psilocybin psychotherapy. DC's Decriminalize Nature init for entheogenic plants had passed. And Mississippi and South Dakota had passed medical marijuana.

It got better, with legalization states now also including South Dakota (!) and Montana, a political breakthrough in red and reddish states. The Chronicle will post a piece soon, but I'm noting it here in the meanwhile.

Congratulations for entheogens for traditional religion

Congratulations on the success of initiatives including Oregon 109, Oregon 110, and DC 81.

 

These initiatives make more available the visionary plants which have been used in religion and throughout Western religious history (including normal, non-deviant, “orthodox” Christianity) & throughout World religious history.

 

To mitigate dangers, prayer to a higher controller has been used throughout religious history.  My Egodeath theory describes the struggle or "spiritual emergency" (Stan Grof's term) and how it is resolved through prayer and consciously trusting a higher controller or a hidden creator of all thoughts.

 

Reference: Books and articles about the history of visionary plants throughout all religions, including the Eucharistic meal within normal Christianity.

 

Brown & Brown’s book - The Psychedelic Gospels: The Secret History of Hallucinogens in Christianity.

 

Tom Hatsis' book - Psychedelic Mystery Traditions: Spirit Plants, Magical Practices, and Ecstatic States.

Covers the usage of visionary plants throughout normal Christian historical practice.

 

In 1957 (63 years ago), famous poet Robert Graves discovered the mushroom basis of ancient Greek religious mythology & Mystery Religion.

His early discovery is summarized in his widely, ever-popular book Greek Myths, in the Foreward.  

His original article around 1957 is “What Food the Centaurs Ate” (which is, Amanita & psilocybin mushrooms).
