Visionary plants and LSD trials.

Having just finshed reading this fabulous book "Visionary Plant Consciousness: The Shamanic teachings of The Plant World", a collection of articles/lectures from various notables who believe in the importance of visionary plants and have fought hard to lift restrictions on their use, I was pleased when Shaun sent me this article from The Australian yesterday: 

"After 40 years of being a medical research taboo and virtually impossible to use in government-approved studies, acid is finally making a comeback, with the US Food and Drug Administration relaxing the conditions for trials involving the mind-altering substance, and many doctors now convinced that the controlled use of LSD and other psychedelics (including psilocybin, found in "magic mushrooms") could hold the key to treating everything from severe depression to post-combat stress."

 Read the full article here.

Then, if you're interested, get your hands on a copy of this book. Apart from a dreary and self-important piece by Alex Grey about his visionary art, which only occupies a few pages, I highly recommend it.
