Warning: Don’t do drugs. It’s that simple.
People are idiots. That’s just how it is. People rush into life altering stuff without the slightest clue how deep the rabbit hole goes… that’s why I’ve decided to start up Synthesis Drug of the Week. Hopefully I can shed some light on mind warping substances before yall jump in the waters without testing how deep it is.
Salvia Divinorum is a plant native to places like Mexico. The Mazatec Indians used it primarily as a diuretic, but also ingested it in larger quantities to facilitate shamanistic visions. Lets fast forward a few hundred years.
In modern day America, the extract of the plant is available like fucking packs of cigarettes. Over 18? Yea, here you go. When I say extracts, I’m talking bout the refinement of the plant into a fucking wallop of a drug. Remember the plant the Indian’s were using to create visions? Think of that, but 52x the potency. But no one really wants to eat that shit, it probably tastes bad, right? Lucky for teenager’s everywhere it’s been translated into America’s favorite form of consumption: smoking!
What does this shit do to you? Well, according to drug sites, a small list would be a shift in mind perspective, loss of time, hallucinations, loss of reality, loss of motor skills, auditory hallucinations, etc. From personal experience, you basically get thrown on a 10 minute long roller coaster ride through your mind. Is that good or bad… I dunnow, I guess you’ll have to be the judge of that. I’ve only done it a limited number of times, almost all of which were a few years ago, but the first time I laid back in the grass as the sky proceeded to turn into ‘It’s A Small World’ from Disneyland, but without the infectious waters and the $9 hot dogs.
Why isn’t this shit illegal? Well… hmm… fuck, i have no idea, but rest assured it will be in the upcoming years thanks to stupid frat bros posting YouTube videos of them and the rest of Delta Gamma Fuckoffs ‘GETTING WASTEEEED’ and terrorizing each other. At least there’s an age restriction on it; if I had found out about it in high school, I probably would have devoted my soul to it.
The moral of the story is don’t go fucking around with drugs you don’t know about… oh, and use a butane lighter. Peace.
