All pharmaceutical medicine is descended from nature’s bounty. Plants, animals & fish, minerals, and oxygen are all drugs nature provides. Even the sun provides endorphins, which are feel-good hormones for people and animals. All of these are critical for humans to survive.

Science has largely ignored plants and their potential beneficial uses, instead preferring to focus on sensationalistic and negative aspects of drug use. Too much of anything will indeed kill a person. Too much water will drown a person from the inside. Too much oxygen will cause oxygen poisoning, which is called oxidative stress. And everybody knows that drugs can kill when they are misused.

The benefits of drugs are numerous. Medications are helpful, from pain management to cancer treatment and Vitamin C to nitroglycerin. Since the caveman discovered that certain plants have unusual or medicinal effects, drugs have been used.

Who am I to say no to such a long history of drug use?

Throughout time, people have learned that too much of anything is bad for a person. Caffeine can kill when it is abused, just like any opiates. People have known to be moderate with drug use rather than radical. Things that kill are to be avoided. It’s just common sense.

I know whereof I speak. Drugs I am familiar with and comfortable with are many. The illegal ones are THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, found in marijuana, and psilocybin, found in magic mushrooms. The legal ones include a lifelong love of caffeine and a relatively long duration of smoking nicotine.

I am 67 years old now, and I’m just starting to think I should have tried more recreational drugs. Fortunately, it may not be too late for that.

LSD is the only extra illegal drug that I have tried and liked. I was too afraid of it, though – the news people scared me into thinking it was a dangerous and suicidal drug. As a result, I couldn’t relax enough to enjoy it. But in retrospect, I am rethinking my views. Maybe it is time to revisit LSD and see what happens.

I am just saying.

The pharmaceutical drugs I use regularly are antidepressants, Prosac, and Abilify to kick the Prosac. I also take Ativan occasionally to sleep and for fits of nervousness. Ativan is a drug like Valium.

Then too, I take vitamins and Trelegy for COPD. I am on oxygen as well. Any of these can kill me if I overdo it. Fortunately, I have too much common sense for that.

Recently I’ve been watching Joe Rogen on YouTube. He inspires me to continue with my drug experiments. My recent experiences with magic mushrooms have been epiphanies for me. They are simply lovely for various reasons. Magic mushrooms are mood elevators and color brighteners, and they help me to think more clearly.

A state of mind is like a dark cupboard, very spooky if you don’t know what’s in there. Worse too, if you keep hearing weird banging noises every once in a while.

OMG! Just stop talking. You’re making me crazier than usual. And the banging? I can account for that. Oh yes, I can.

Ok then.

I had a brilliant rage published on Helium.com; but they disputed my fiery rhetoric and deleted the article.  Oh, yes, they did.  I shall try it one more time.  Let’s get a new system that is fair and actually works.

My novel has been seriously mis-understood, mainly due to my ass-backwards method of book describing.  My novel, Murphy Blue, is a cat murder mystery novel, a beast fighting man type of thing.  There’s also a little side story about some poor bastard who gets convicted of murder and dances the death row shake, rattle, and roll.

Hell rained upon my head and my computer wouldn’t work.  I pounded on those keys, but it helped not at all.  My desktop was bad broken, no work no more.  I finally took it to the shop and had some kind of transplant done.  Also I bought a laptop.  This is the story of my perilous journey to the ownership of two computers.

The poor, the crazy, the disenfranchised, the elderly, the destitute, all these have their special place among the lowest of the classes.  Their numbers grow, but dispassionately we say, the poor are always with us.  Yes, the poor are always with us, so I guess that makes it okay.
