    PROGRAM NOTES:







    This is a recording of one of our recent Live Salons. While we sometimes have guests who bring specific levels of expertise to our salons, most of the time we seem to be able to have in-depth conversations without the “experts”. This was one of those nights.







    I began our discussion thinking that vaping DMT over your lunch hour wasn’t a great idea, but after learning more about vaping DMT I changed my mind, not about doing it over your lunch hour, but about vaping DMT in general. As it turns out, there is a lot more to this new trend that I realized. Also, I learned enough about 4-AcO-DMT to thinking that this is something I’m going to try. If you aren’t already familiar with it, this discussion should be of interest to you as well.

    Today’s podcast is a recording from the Live Salon on July 12, 2021 where attorney Gary Smith joined us for another update of some of the current legal aspects of the War on Drugs.







    We also talked about his new book, which is an encyclopedia of drug laws. It includes both international and local laws. This new book, Psychedelia Lex, is not just a valuable resource for lawyers, it is also worthwhile for local psychedelic societies to use as background for some of their discussions.

    Jacques Oliver and Matt Pallamary











    Today’s podcast features a recording from last Monday evening’s Live Salon. Our guests were Jacques Oliver and Matt Pallamary who joined us to talk about Jacques’ recent autobiography, Nature Loves Courage. Since the three of us are long-time friends who have shared quite a few experiences together, the conversation sometimes turned to us telling a few of our old “war stories.”







    Two of Jacques’ stories really stand out. As it turned out, Jacques was the last person for whom Terence McKenna ever held a DMT pipe. And then there is the story of how Jacques wound up spending a rainy night all alone in Terence’s house in Hawaii just after he helped pack the library for shipment to the states. The only things that were left in the room where he spent the night was a backpack that had some DMT in it and an urn on the mantle the contained Terence McKenna’s ashes. The story gets quite interesting from there.

Just the title alone of the Nature Loves Courage episode helped me to do mushrooms again after about a 2 year break. This is the best podcast ever
