    i'm just rying to take away this mad ilusion that stoners are something new. every generation before you have been at it.
    if you read about opium and ludanum in britain at the turn of the century you'd be gobsmaked at the sheer numbers of people from all backgrounds who indulged.
    the largest amount of opium use in the western world was empire building days. we were all getting high and going out thieving......stealing continents and peoples...WOW!
    the whole of society almost, were taking some form of opium on a daily basis.
    drug problem ? you'd think so but no. prime ministers and admirals were known to smoke together. babies were settled down for the night with it. no problem because it had been legal and acceptable for generations. generations who built the railwys and tunneled through mountains.
    generations of stoners. yahoo!!!

    "It banishes melancholy, begets confidence, converts fear into boldness, makes the coward eloquent, and dastards brave. Nobody, in desperate circumstances, and smiling under a disrelish for life, ever laid violent hands on himself after taking a dose of opium, or ever will."

    "Narcotics have been systematically scapegoated and demonized. The idea that anyone can use drugs and escape a horrible fate is an anathema to these idiots. I predict that in the near future right-wingers will use drug hysteria as a pretext to set up an international police apparatus."
    William S. Burroughs
    (1914 - 1997)

    some of these pictures are very familiar to a lot of your modern experiences i'm sure. aren't they beutiful ?

    "There were opium dens where one could buy oblivion, dens of horror where the memory of old sins could be destroyed by the madness of sins that were new"

    please forgive me taking up a whole post. the drug story is a BIG story .i am just trying to convey the point that it's nothing new.
    IT has and will be forever........with us. surely we must learn to live with it differently than the way we are.

    THE OPIUM-SMOKER

    "I am engulfed, and drown deliciously
    Soft music like a perfume, and sweet light
    Golden with audible colours exquisite,
    Swathe me with cerements for eternity.
    Times is no more. I pause and yet I flee.
    A million ages wrap me round with night.
    I drain a milion ages of delight.
    I hold the future in my memory.

    Also, I have this garret which I rent,
    This bed of straw, and this that was a chair,
    This worn-out body like a tattered tent,
    This crust, of which the rats have eaten part,
    This pipe of opium; rage, remorse, despair;
    This soul at pawn and this delirious heart."

    Arthur Symons

    "I was stared at, hooted at, grinned at, chattered at, by monkeys, by paroquets, by cockatoos. I ran into pagodas, and was fixed, for centuries, at the summit, or in secret rooms: I was the idol; I was the priest; I was worshipped; I was sacrificed. I fled from the wrath of Brama through all the forests of Asia: Vishnu hated me; Seva laid wait for me. I came suddenly upon Isis and Osiris: I had done a deed, they said, which the ibis and the crocodile trembled at. I was buried for a thousand years, in stone coffins, with mummies and sphinxes, in narrow chambers at the heart of eternal pyramids. I was kissed, with cancerous kisses, by crocodiles; and laid, confounded with all unuttemble slimy things, amongst reeds and Nilotic mud."
    Thomas de Quincey
    (1785 - 1859)
    Confessions of an English Opium-Eater

    that just about sums up opium for me. thats the buzz. and if your wondering why the people are always laying down to smoke ,it's because you cant dream standing up. opium is about dreaming...fantastical dreams.
    promise i'll leave it there for now.
