Can we get a druggy thread going? What's /lit/ currently high on? I just smoked the last of the lemon haze I bought just after Christmas.
Currently reading True Hallucinations by Terence McKenna, a book which surprisingly touches on botany, linguistics, and sociology/socio-biology. It's also just plain fun, how the people in the book tramp through the Amazon Rainforest whilst tripping on all sorts of drugs. They meet mechanical transdimensional elves, UFOs, gods and goddesses, and the very nature of Time Itself. Definitely worth a read even if you like straight-up adventure stories.
I can't wait for weed to go the way of cigarettes; friends and family patronisingly telling you to quit, people looking at you annoyed when you stink up the pavement, being asked to leave the room to Indulge in your filthy habit because cracking the window open just isn't enough.

The pharmako series is top notch
Morphine, 30mg, p.o.
I have yet to find excellent drug literature. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a wild ride and enjoyable read, but you're an insufferable idiot if you interpret it to be primarily about drugs - it isn't. Much in the same way Moby Dick isn't primarily about ships.
Junkie was passable and by no means bad, just not particularly profound. Morphine, by Bulgakov was engaging and interesting - the short story format it is written in ensures the subject matter doesn't end tedious, trite and repetitive - a great pitfall when it comes to drug literature.
I've never read McKenna, Leary or other drug 'philosophers' - my strong impression is that they're inane at best, batshit insane at worst.
le morality man dissaproves of your degenerate behaviour, OP.
tbqh I found "True Hallucinations" to be kind of lame and a disappointment. The only other McKenna I've read was FOTG which at least felt like it was worth reading and not a waste of time like TH. The mushroom-DNA-soundwave stuff was nonsense.
If you are interested in the classic psychedelics like acid and mushrooms and plan on using them or continuing to us them then "The Psychedelic Experience" by Leary and some of his pals is interesting and worth checking out.
