Drugs are drugs. Legal or not I don't do them. I do take medicine when prescribed. I am not stupid. I consume minor amounts of alcohol(mainly red
wines). However, using any drug to "escape" from your problems generally only makes those problems worse and adds another problem of alcohol/drug
dependency. So, NO. No magic mushrooms for me. If you have to be drugged up to appreciate a society, there is something wrong with that society. Case
in point....America today.

camp with their 20,000 administration employees and moved to Chicago..
