Consuming Pleasures traces the international and Australian history of licit and illicit drug use. It examines why we consume and what we consume, as well as the way in which consumption is regulated in the era of global free trade. It also looks at drug use from an Australian perspective, going back to our own opium-growing industry and the racist origins of our drug laws. In doing so it considers the paradox of contemporary white Australian identity: on the one hand an image of fit, sun-bronzed athletic types at home in the surf; on the other a nation of people whose per capita drug consumption often equals and more often than not surpasses that of most other nations.

At the beginning of the 19th century, opium was widely used as an everyday remedy for common ailments. By the 1920s, it was classified as a dangerous drug. In an examination of the social context of drug taking in Victorian England, the book explains this decisive change in attitude. This revised edition examines how and why restrictive policies were put in place in the early decades of the 20th century and reveals fresh perspectives on the motivations which survive in the formation of current drug policies.

The Earth’s population has reached over seven billion. Even as war, terror, and environmental catastrophes dominate the headlines, medical science and technology continue to improve our lives. Can we reconcile the two, or is our planet irretrievably lost? Drawing on religious, scientific, and philosophical insights, physicist Michael A. Reimann combines theological and metaphysical views to show mankind’s future in A Letter from God. In an easy-to-read style, Reimann transcribes God’s message to humanity and argues that we are at a turning point in our brief but spectacular history on planet Earth. Reimann explores some of the doubts and perplexities humans have experienced throughout history and discusses how scientific discoveries continue to shape human evolution. But at the heart of this discourse is an urgent wake-up call. Overpopulation, pollution, disease, and dependency on fossil fuels continue to send us hurtling toward a crucial breaking point. If we choose to harness the power of technology, abandon organized religion, and practice environmentalism, however, we may yet survive. A Letter from God offers an eye-opening, prescient window into humankind’s potential destruction—or potential salvation.

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 "Legally Stoned is a well researched sourcebook for anyone interested in psychoactive substances that are currently legal in the United States. Legally Stoned cites scientific research and personal accounts to provide accurate descriptions of each substance's history, physiological effects, and the risks of use. Legally Stoned also challenges the rationality of the drug laws by describing the methods people often use to obtain and prepare each substance." --Krystle Cole,, author of Lysergic and After the Trip "I refuse to plunge into paranoid speculation why many of the magical and sacred foods of the gods are made illegal and their communicants vilified. Instead, I bless and give thanks for books such as this, and intelligent and courageous souls such as Dr. Thies for their efforts to keep the doors of perception in full view for all of us to see." --Lon Milo DuQuette, author of My Life with the Spirits and Enochian Vision Magick "Todd Thies is the new millennium's Timothy Leary. His book covers the unexplored, mind-blowing universe outside of the DEA's crosshairs with insight and clarity. Legally Stoned is a fascinating read, a guided journey down the rabbit hole."--M. Chris Fabricant, author of Busted! Drug War Survival Skills So while wondering what the effects might be for you, just know that you have the option to obtain and use any of these, and many other, means of seeking a new level of awareness. It's completely legal; it's human nature; it's your right. What are you waiting for? With 16 pages of photos A Featured Alternate of the Quality Paperback Book Club
