The thing to be very careful of is that those scientists actually get employed to research plants and then not patent the resulting compounds for pharmaceutical companies that might abuse the results for profit.

We know . There is a little hand book . Just most people dont know . Any kid who has ears has heard the stories . Mix roots with the berries and that kind of thing .Well they would be active if the government understood we need science for the future , that we need our own meds and tech and smart people . We sell our brains over seas and put RD in the hahands of others , not smart.

1. Go to google image search. 2. Google 'indigenous Australian art'. 3. now google 'psychedelic art' Definitely some similarities but the Aboriginals were limited to an ochre and charcoal palette.

Poppies are the bush drug of the future. They grow anywhere that has dirt, you don't have to go anywhere near them for weeks at a time, they don't take 8 months to grow, and you can buy the seeds at Woolworths. Now all you need is some land that doesn't belong to you.

Mushy season just ended for us around Canberra got a really good haul of Bluemeanies!! You can get good amounts of DMT from Black Wattle bark, roots, easerly concentrated but you don't wanna kill the tree of course.
Wgii 3 (6 months ago)
Cadaverdog thanks mate will have a look next year
Cadaverdog (6 months ago)
Well, the best hauls I've ever picked were in the Brindies particularly "Piccadilly Circus" intersection you can google map it really easily, but anywhere there on the side of the road under brush in the area, watch for Rangers it's a really popular spot. I got busted once, just got a warning, nice guy. If you have a forbie a little ways down the road to Tumit is good. But if you live around Tuggas, Cornin Dam car park and a nice walk down the hill. Winter after rain, BEFORE FROST you get about a 3 week window (sometimes it's hard to judge) I hope this helps!!! :) Ps There are some secret locations I can't share LULS ;) Peace

XemPvP (9 months ago)
Psychedelics are great for experiencing things that one couldn't fathom while sober, so yes in a way they do expand your mind and "enlighten" you but abusing them can have severe negative effects such as HPPD which I still have after a few years. Trip wisely kids
