“Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third-storey window… Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behavior and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.” ― Terence McKenna.
