Hey, don't mean to butt in and disrupt the fun, just a bit of advice. Mixing drugs/alcohol and meditation can be dangerous for a few reasons. First, it can delude you understanding of meditation and turn it into an experience searching activity. Doing this can lead to some pretty serious psychological defects. Meditation is meant to clarify reality, not be a vehicle for pleasure. Second, it can strengthen your attachment to drugs/alcohol because you may begin to associate it with inducing states of meditative experience that you enjoy.
Third, and probably most importantly, is that Kundalini meditation is an advanced method of meditation that in the past was only taught to very experienced meditators, and done so under the close guidance of an enlightened being who could accurately sense what was happening to you. The danger is, it can permanently alter your bodies energy flow, and if not done properly, can cause all sorts of diseases both physiological and psychological. I have heard stories of early twenty year old's having heart attacks and brain aneurysms while practicing Kundalini meditation by themselves (with no guidance). So to mix drugs/alcohol into that equation just sounds absolutely like not a good idea.
Just something to think about friends.
