A good book but....
I thought there'd be more on the history of each drug. Instead though, it seemed more like a promo to do drugs. It was good and I did enjoy learning about some of the different drugs during the different generations but it could have been much better.

On the Current State of Chemical Consciousness-Adj
This a-book is on the current state of chemical consciousness-adjustment in America today. I doesn't give exteneded histories on individual drugs but I does go into the early 20th century political and social fights to ban narcotics. It also goes into current unregulated drugs such as salvia and ayahuasca. I have years ago experimented with some mild drugs so this a-book was an eye-opener for me. I particularily liked the chapter on the wild west of synthetic chemical concoctions people put together in thier labs and how the authorities are always many steps behind. This book helped me appreciate how prohibition seems to be a losing proposition but the alternative doesn't look any more appealing. Good stuff even when listened to sober!

A really good book.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would totally recommend this. It's very informative and enlightening about America's relationship with illegal drugs.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Which scene was your favorite?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I thought his descriptions of the various hallucinogens that people were very accurate.
Any additional comments?
The narrator sounded a little older than the writer, so whenever the book dropped into first person accounts, it sounded a little strange.
shows how democrats are ruined this country with illegal/ legal for them drug trade. and why we have heroin epidemic. Clintons airfield in arkansas that stuff is shipped into. a secret airfield in eastern NC the CIA flies drugs into. ever wonder why shipments are hardly ever busted coming in? this book will explain why and how democrats control drug trade. another great book on this is "The slip and slide company of Montana" ties into this book perfectly
