To be undrugged -- neither pharmaceutically nor recreationally -- seems to be becoming exceptional.

it's the new 'unplugged'!

wanting to bend consciousness is not per se a sign of folly, (though it can sure accelerate going there).

and being a non-bender is no guarantee of clear thinking, in my experience anyway.

personally i believe that we should decide for ourselves what best nourishes us, and if you can grow it in the garden organically, then you should have a right to use it, whatever 'category' the present mores determine it to be.

there's too much difference in opinion in various thriving cultures to take categorisation seriously, except for staying out of jail, natch!
