14 Mind-Altering Substances You Can Obtain and Use Without Breaking The Law

"A Euphoric, Crazy Trip." --Amanita muscaria mushroom user

Everyone can get high...biologically speaking, that is. And it's just plain human nature to want to try it. Although the government stands in the way of this basic right, there are ways around the restrictions. On the road to altered consciousness, there's a perfectly legal route. With each of the fourteen psychoactive substances detailed in this book, you can get high, pass a urine drug test, and never once break the law.

"Totally Clear, Intense Hallucinations For Hours." --Ayahuasca user

Legally Stoned provides a clear, practical guide for obtaining and using fourteen of the easiest to acquire, legal mind-altering agents. It also includes a description and history of each item, its chemistry and physiological reactions, accounts of its pleasures and perils, and any risks associated with it. Here are a few legal substances and their reported impact:

  • Amanita muscaria mushroom use leads to feelings of euphoria and auditory hallucinations
  • Anadenanthera peregrina/colubrina seeds have been known to cause intense visions of psychedelic light and color
  • Ayahuasca, which originated in South America, often produces visual hallucinations that include the jungle, exotic animals, even ancient native artwork!

"Like Watching A Laser Light Show...Next Time I'll Take More." --Colubrina seed user

"Fascinating . . . You are not merely holding a book; you are holding a key to the doors of perception. Legally Stoned is far more than an excellent, meticulously-researched sourcebook; it is a highly-readable treasure trove of experiments and experiences." --Kinky Friedman, musician, novelist, and politician

    I think drugs should be legal. Dr. Thies explains why the "war on drugs" is not winnable, because humans from times past till present have a need to alter their minds and consciousness. This is an interesting read especially if you are interested in ethnobotanicals and their effects on the brain and consciousness altering.
