    So… ancient stoner had a really bad day and harshed his buzz by falling into a tarpit some, 12,000 years ago. Tarpit preserved his leather pouch full of premium nugs. True story. Seriously. This shit goes waaaaaaaay back.

    OK, I understand the presence of atropine and scopolamine (naturally-occurring chemicals in the nightshade plant family) but that also includes NORMAL local, edible plants that would have been part of their diet, (easily obtainable, unlike hunting) not necessarily ingested for “recreational” purposes. This is yet another example of poor journalism exploiting modern popular anachronistic presumption.

    We’re a bunch of clever apes and we like our drugs.

    Jean Auel’s Earth’s Children book series introduced plants with psychedelic properties in ritualistic ceremonies.

    Read up on Terrance McKenna’s “stoned ape” theory. YouTube has it.

    History repeats, may the fall of civilizations be connected to drug use????? Here in the USA we are legalizing more and more drug use along with Big Pharma producing more FDA approved drugs. Somewhere in the future the fall will happen.

      I study gut biomes. The modern Pharma drugs completely destroy the gut biome. If you look at the side effects modern drugs have on the digestive tract – it’s terrible.

      I believe in psychadelic assisted therapies. They are much more profound and beneficial than taking an SSRI/anti-depressant. Modern drugs don’t teach root problems. Plant medicines (which have roots) can treat root problems. Proper patient selection is necessary.

      Most people take psychedelics with zero reverence or appreciation. Proper education is important before administration.

    Nu ? Does this mean mishigas is truly an ancient phenomenon and antiquated human condition? Caveman group therapy? Shel

    Nothing new here, especially among the indigenous.It’s all been said for more than 100+ years. It’s their culture. If ya want to see abuse of drugs… you’re living it in the USA.
