These substances are powerful tools, not toys

They can amplify negative experience

There is no escape once you’ve committed

You can’t rewire your neural pathways over and over

‘Set and setting’ require planning

The effects fade after a certain number of experiences

There was a reason for elaborate native rituals

It can take a long term to understand how deeply they affect us

Show respect and they can show you a new world
