Re: “How to Smoke Weed

First off, I think I love you. Next, you're absolutely right. About no publicity for acid, an amazing therapeutic. After my first trip I realized that yes, I really could trust what was inside my head, all the stuff that I'd never heard voiced aloud and that completely contradicted the society I was living in.

Some of the original guys who were responsible for acid becoming known made a recording in the late '70s, called "LSD Ten Years Later", in which they basically said the same things I'd been saying about it for ten years - how it can literally save your sanity, but it has to be done right - clean your house, get clean yourself, have nice, light food ready, including brown rice and veggies. DON'T EAT A POUND OF CHERRIES! (You'll pay for it the next day. Happened to a good friend...)

Have 24 hours available. 36 is even better. You need 12 hours for the trip and then time to think and transition back to dealing with the jungle out there.

If you decide to go somewhere for your trip, plan it so there's as little as possible hassle.

Make sure you're in a comfortable, SAFE situation, such as at home, and won't be disturbed. Maybe pick a theme(s). My fourth trip was my Dylan trip, with my best friend, a confirmed Dylan freak. Thanks a lot, Bob! (Always have music you love readily available.)

Back in the day, 250 micrograms was the standard dose. I was using it to think, not to get high. I kept taking less and less, until I finally settled on an eighth of a tab (I weighed about 105 lbs). It allowed me to do the kind of analytical thinking I wanted to do, but I remained completely functional, and, it didn't make me sick to my stomach. I tripped approximately every three weeks for about two years. I quit when I realized I didn't need the drug anymore to do the kind of thinking I wanted to do.


In my experience, knowing a lot of people who tripped, a bad trip usually was the result of getting into a bad situation. I talked many people down off bad trips. And, of course, 250 micrograms was way too high of a dose, yet it was the standard dose.

The poles in the subway cars felt like melting chocolate, btw... That was my "2001" trip. We went to see it tripping. That's when it first came out. That was SOME trip!

Everyone needs to realize that movies such as "2001", bands such as "Pink Floyd", and so much more amazing art, never would have happened if not for acid.

Yet no one talks about it. And that's so wrong.
