In this episode of psychonautica, Max Freakout talks about the
Dutch smartshop scene, the recent ban on yohimbe and forthcoming
changes in the Dutch policies on magic mushroom sales, then in
response to a recent dopecast, Max discusses the benefits and
dangers of MDMA and ecstasy, their potential role as 'love drugs'
and their psychedelic properties, and the attitudes of mass-media
towards illegal drugs versus the legal ones. Hear an announcement
of the forthcoming World psychedelic forum in Switzerland and a
discussion about some of the speakers who are going to be there
including a brief explanation of Stanislav Grof's contributions
towards psycedlic psychotherapy, then a review of Andrew Letcher's
recent book about magic mushrooms including a discussion about the
differences between amanita and psilocybe mushrooms and the
importance of that distinction for theories about the origin of
religion. Finally Max reads out a 2cb trip report from shaggz1297
involving paranoid delusions and passionate romance. Email
