    Fair Treatment Launch - Oct 12

    Thanks Hashlingr...I'll edit that into the post
  2. OVERVIEW We have lost the so-called war on drugs, but the battle rages on and Australians are being made to live in the wreckage. Drug-induced deaths have hit their highest number in 20 years and 200,000 Australians are unable to get the treatment they need each year. Now is the time for meaningful and effective drug policy reform. For a courageous movement forging a new path for people affected by drug policy. A hand that reaches out with help and not handcuffs. Join us for the launch event at Sydney Town Hall and hear from Sir Richard Branson, Dr Marianne Jauncey, and Dr Khalid Tinasti, about how we can reform lives and reform drug policy, for the fair treatment of all people. Friday 12th October - Art exhibit and doors open at 10am. Guests are requested to be in their seats at 10:45 with the program to begin promptly at 11am KEY SPEAKERS Sir Richard Branson – Founder of the Virgin Group, and Member of the Global Commission on Drug Policy (GCDP). Dr Marianne Jauncey – Medical Director of the Uniting Medically Supervised Injecting Centre (MSIC), Conjoint Senior Lecturer at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre UNSW, and a Clinical Senior Lecturer at Sydney Medical School, University of Sydney. Dr Khalid Tinasti -Executive Secretary of the Global Commission on Drug Policy (GCDP), Visiting Fellow at the Global Studies of the University of Geneva and Honorary Research Associate at Swansea University.

    Happy Wattle Day!

    Damn, missed the seeds...great to have your germination method written out to Communacacian..many thanks That ring-barking photo is deeply disturbing. I think setting up a camera near where this occurred is a good idea, but as I have no idea where on the mountain this is, it could be difficult terrain to cover as there are vast slopes of these trees up there. Perhaps a laminated sign on this tree as a message to others considering doing the same...some brief but stern educational information?
  7. Bumping this post....less than a week to get your tickets folks !

    Creating an Outdoor Patch for Woodlovers or Subs

    This notion of adding precursors to substrate also got Shulgin looking at the end-results of adding 5-MeO-DMT to come up with 4-HO-5-MeO-DMT: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4-Hydroxy-5-methoxydimethyltryptamine There's also a 1988 paper called 'Biotransformation of tryptamine derivatives in mycelial cultures of Psilocybe’' by Jochen Gartz which I've attached here Gartz 1989.pdf

    Let's Go Outside

    The re-framing of language around drug-use is certainly a key aspect of moving away from the shackles of prohibition and the media will continue to be a powerful driver of this. Focussing on the medical benefits and applications of a substance (cannabis perhaps leading the way here) is a vital if not foundational step in exposing the scheduling system of 'no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse' as not only contradictory and outdated but patently false. However, shifting the puritanical attitudes entrenched in drug policy politics, rhetoric and discourse will perhaps be a more cultural shift as one that requires the novel step of acknowledging that fun and pleasure, healing and wellness need not be mutual exclusive phenomenon. Moreover, what is required in the broader conversation is a wider recognition of humanity's inherent impulse to alter mood and mind within our long-standing history of utilising different compounds to achieve specific states of being as an evolutionary advantageous one: https://theconversation.com/why-do-humans-have-an-innate-desire-to-get-high-60671 I can't really see 'entheogen' gaining any real traction in mainstream reporting though as introducing new conceptual models and language usually runs counter to the narrative on substance use unless they serve the sensationalist approach. So given the general public's already established familiarity with 'psychedelic', I imagine this will continue to be the parlance. The intersection between non-theistic users of psychedelics and the conceptual basis of 'entheogen' is a really interesting one, though even considering the etymology of 'psyche' (as meaning 'soul'), the meaning of 'psychedelic' as 'manifesting mind (or) soul' is already problematised in this sense. As the John Hopkins' studies have shown, the occurrence and extent of the mystical experience has a direct correlation with the efficacy of psychedelic therapy be it for depression, anxiety or PTSD and the pure experiential nature of this state often transcends religious or ideological systems of belief unless viewed through the lens of specific religious/spiritual frameworks. However, as James Oroc points out in this great article in Entheogen Review from 2008, for most psychonauts it is 'the primacy of consciousness that clearly lies at the heart of the entheogenic movement'; https://erowid.org/entheogens/entheogens_article3.shtml "One likely reason that "entheogen" has been so widely adopted by proponents of such drugs is the fact that it throws a cloak of obscurity over the taboo topic of psychedelics: enthusiasts may not be as interested in finding God as they are in staying out of jail. Furthermore, once the term is understood by mainstreamers, it can add an air of respectability to the dialog. Images of freaked-out 1960s youth are less likely to spring to mind, when the discussion appears to focus on community-based spiritual groups making positive changes in the world. Mainstream respectability is clearly a goal for some people in the movement, who put a great deal of effort into obtaining government approval for their activities. Yet within such a matrix, science still trumps spirituality." Oroc, J 2008

    psilocybe australiana season?

    I was under the impression that 'Golden Teacher' was just a colloquial name for Psilocybe Cubensis anyway. The season around those parts varies quite a bit each year but now should be pretty ripe especially if the humidity is up in the %90 range with decent rain- which i believe you've had a tonne of. I've found Cubes up around the Promised Lands as early as December but never much past April but this is also when Panaeolus Cyanescens seemed to appear, i.e. after the Cubes were no longer around. Plenty of fertile sites around there so only one way to find out for sure Happy Hunting
