  1. Producing data which suits your agenda is the bread and butter of the political arena. 


    Thanks for the links! I’ll have a proper look soon and reply again. The one I found was partially unbiased, I think one extra fatality per million is quite minuscule in reality (people who are gonna get stoned and drive will get stoned and drive regardless of the laws anyway, so I think this is incredibly hard to measure anyway) 


    i think the additional road accidents and deaths is one of the “better” arguments against keeping cannabis illegal, so the more information we have to rebut these claims the better.

  2. I saw a recent study which concluded.... an average of one per million population increase in road fatalities after legalisation of cannabis, measured over several states in the USA. 


    link: tba... struggling to find the damned thing again. Was a research article, not just some article piece.

    Haha oh god no, please. :,( 

    makes me want to cry and laugh at the same time. 


    Fuck me, that front page though, nice bit of moral panic and hysteria they’re trying to cause. Too late assholes! (Hopefully)

    Try mixing some with a little bicarb paste, say, 1:3 bicarb to mapacho. Dry it, grind it super fine and sieve it. Then blast it with a kuripé. Then you'll know the mapacho spirit!

    Would sodium carbonate work better? I remember reading that in a yopo snuff it worked better than bicarbonate, or is this different? 


    Also would a snuff tube work? Probably need to make myself a kuripé haha

    I'm not a huge fan of cannabis or tobacco but quite enjoy the act of smoking (under very specific circumstances) I've been wondering if mapacho is a viable option? Something to pass around with friends and enter a slightly altered state of consciousness.

    I understand the negative side effects and have heard many shamans talk about being "punished" so to speak if you abuse the plant and i understand that. 

    Has anyone else been in a similar position?


    Absolutely, mopacho altered state only lasts for a very short time but is enjoyable, I tried it again last night and for sure the same feeling was there again, with also a slight worry that I would make myself sick haha but that didn’t eventuate.  although I could see it happening if I smoked more than one cigarette. 

  6. Ill have to give that a go, sounds like an experience haha 


    yea Would be the super high amount of nicotine, Probably good to know it might make me vomit otherwise I might start thinking I’ve done myself in if that ever happens hahaha. I am quite certain it’s not placebo because i went into the experience not expecting anything that strong (relatively)


    I think it’s really awesome what it can do, I never would have expected it. I should probably be careful too. 


    On a a side note I think I may have sparked up one of my friends addictions by giving him mapacho once. Now he’s chuffing. But I guess that’s his journey and not my burden haha, he told me it was strong but I don’t have much of a gauge for that. 



  7. To give some background: ive never smoked cigarettes, rarely smoke anything, probably once a month or less I may have some tobacco + extra 


    I’ve smoked mopacho with weed quite a few times and everything went well, twice now I’ve decided to just smoke the mopacho tobacco on its own and have been left feeling slightly stoned as if I’ve just smoked some weak weed. This feeling doesn’t last very long, 5-30mins.  Has anyone else had this experience? It’s quite enjoyable and a bit of a surprise, as when I’ve smoked just roll your own tobacco previously I’ve felt nothing like this.

    i'm with you WB - I hate having to get a script simply for codeine and pay nearly 3 times as much (not including the doc visit to get and repeat the script) - all the while with the added stigma of having to keep asking for an "addictive substance"...  My needs are legit and I (think I) can manage the addictive nature just fine. Worse: I'm pretty sure my doc now thinks opioids are bad... here try this lyrica...


    I also don't think it should be anyone's surprise that an opium derivative (whichever one) could be addictive.  And to expect a multinational corporation to have a social conscience?  That story seems a beat up to me designed to keep up the mantra that all opiates are bad and at the same time rake in some money to the federal coffers.

    Ultimately this ruling will most likely be bad for people and doctors who didn’t do the wrong thing. Making them harder to get or prescribe, it’s quite sad really because the ones that will suffer the consequence will be the ones who want to use it legitimately. 


    Like whats happened to codine. Lots of people need this over the counter but cant get it now due to others abusing it. It’s a complicated situation with many people to blame. We need to improve the system instead

    I've reflected on this, and I don't think the growers can absolve themselves completely of all responsibility. It's a little too convenient to just say "oh, we only grow the poppies that are really only useful for producing the key ingredients fuelling the opioid crisis, what happens to them after we sold them is none of our concern".

    I'm sure that Tasmanian Alkaloids were all too happy to continue profiting as long as nobody pointed a finger of blame in their direction.

    I agree. They kept growing very well knowing what they were contributing to, although that doesn’t take away the fact there is also legitimate use for these drugs, which are actually needed by many people.

  10. Trying to shift the blame to Tasmanian poppy growers? Lmao they just grew the shit for money. It’s hardly their fault it was aggressively and falsely marketed leading to the oxy crisis etc. laughable. 


    Its about time they take responsibility for the damage they’ve done imo. Big Pharma can’t keep getting free passes just because they’re rich 

  11. Hi all, 


    Looking for some acacia Nilotica seeds along with any other interesting acacia species seeds, (any info regarding nilotica would also be appreciated) 


    I have a small seed bank of other interesting seeds, including: Trichocereus, datura, tobacco, Morning glory and various herbs


    send me a pm if you wish to trade.

    Illegal drugs including cocaine, heroin and cannabis should be reclassified to reflect a scientific assessment of harm, according to a report by the Global Commission on Drug Policy.

    The commission, which includes 14 former heads of states from countries such as Colombia, Mexico, Portugal and New Zealand, said the international classification system underpinning drug control is “biased and inconsistent”.


    No shit...


    Lets hope all this talk actually leads to change!!!

  13. ^ One good thing about capitalism I guess. It can get stuff done. I think in that circumstance as long as the average person can benefit from it, by being able to create a business it’s a good thing.


    It’ll be a bad thing if you need expensive licenses that only big business can afford...





    scare mongering in the title, but actually for use of all drugs. 


    From the church and alan Jones? Lol what

  14. Even though solipsis has a low post count on the SAB I can personally vouch for him. He’s traded with many many people on shroomery and also myself. 


    If someone could help him get ahold of the seemingly allusive weraroa, it would be awesome! :)

    ^ prints for microscopy purposes are not illegal

    Thats good to know, do you have any links for this to be 100% sure? / is each state different or is it all the same?




    I've found this thread: see post 9:  


    Regarding the importation into Australia, they are illegal.


    As for postage within Australia, they may be legal for microscopy purposes, BUT...

    would Using the defence of 'for microscopy purposes only' stand up at all in court once they've searched a house, found tools used to cultivate mushrooms and also (most likely) no microscope?


    But then again I'm sure they have bigger fish to fry than a spore print through the mail.
