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.

Make an episode on the immigrant gangs in australia? Or are you just going to say that they don't exist because it doesn't fit the lefts narrative? This was pretty cool to watch, reminded me of the "old Vice".

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.

Cadaverdog thanks mate will have a look next year
Cadaverdog (1 month 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 (4 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

Too funny like drug dealers in oz would bother if you can buy kilograms of ICE from China . More bullshit from vice
elleoo7 (4 months ago)
Ok but why did you choose a white guy to be featured? I'm sure there are aboriginal tribes in Australia that could've given more of the history and connection to plants in terms of medicinal uses and cultural practices. Having a settler point of view talking about party drugs really cheapens the whole piece.
