Description - Hallucinogens by Charles Grob
It's been forty years since Timothy Leary sat beside a swimming pool in Cuernavaca Mexico ingested several grams of the genus 'Stropharia cubensis' and experienced a dazzling display of visions that lead him to herald the dawning of a New Age. And yet from the counterculture movement of the 1960's through the War on Drugs to this very day the world at large has viewed hallucinogens not as a gift but as a threat to society. In HALLUCINOGENS Charles Grob surveys recent writings from such important thinkers as Terence McKenna Huston Smith and Andrew Weil illustrating that a re-evaluation of the social worth of hallucinogens - used intelligently - is greatly in order.
