Human ingestion of psychedelic plants is thought to stretch from pre-history to the present; in more recent epochs such rituals have been shadowed by attempts at their suppression. This talk looks at the latest efforts to stamp out this praxis on these shores … and what those of us committed to fighting for our cognitive liberty can do about it.
