    Know it well. Went there with a boat mate in 1967. Pre LSD era so I never tried it. Opium rush was our thing. First tried that in 65. Whorehouse in Wanchai.

    The Jungle was so named because was where the brothers hung out when on R n R.

    You have to grow a field of fucking rye though.
    Maybe Rye bread would work.

    My first time dropping acid was in the snow when I was 15. It was majestic watching the snow fall lightly and all the footprints dancing around me. Then the cops turned up and moved us on for loitering outside our school. We went back to someone's house and I remember dropping a drink on the cork kitchen floor then watching it absorb into an animated scene of 2 pirate ships in battle with each other.

    Another time we took microdots and one friend never turned up. We later heard that he thought his heart had fell out through his ribcage and marched himself to A&E to get it put back in. So we made a pilgrimage to the hospital to save our fallen brother. When we got there the doctor told me that he was in fact 'fucked on drugs' and if anyone else had taken them they should come forward. I denied it, but he followed me back to my friends at the smoking room/waiting area where a one of our girls was laying fanny pads out on the floor saying 'follow the yellow brick road, follow the yellow brick road'. She ended up getting her stomach pumped while the rest of us made excuses and left.

    Which reminds me of the time I puked on mushy brew and saw loads of lizards jumping out of my mouth.

    Funky stuff.

    Christ they were good though.
    If you ever got your hands on any 2C-I you got the best of both worlds.

    Unfortunately, people were selling them as Es and there was a few months when Cupids came out and weird shit was happening in the clubs. A friend of mine though a guy was on fire and melting so poured his beer on him to save him. That guy was a bear and he got aa good hiding for it. you'd come out of the club at 3am and the city was full of people walking around like french mime artists.

    That was the first time I'd got 'Es' for a fiver. Around the end of my clubbing days you'd buy them off a guy chewing the carpet for either 3 or a pint.

    One of my friends had a shower while it was coming on, and and saw a lot of worms coming out of the shower head.

    Last time I took it was 1975, when I went to a concert by the Dutch group Focus, which were insanely good. And people were lighting up cone-shaped joints in front of us.

    It's unbelievable what I've put my body through and what I've put through my body during my misspent youth. Luckily I don't have an addictive personality and just grew out of it. Most of my school friends are dead and mostly from drugs or drink/drug driving/riding. The rest are in prison, fucked up on junk or in dead end jobs.

    Choose life.

    Did a seven day water fast. Supposedly the hunger dissipates after a few days but mine didn't (perhaps body fat dissolving released THC). Anyway on day seven I heard that an old mate had come back to town so I jumped on a motorbike and went to see him.
    Felt kinda floaty but got there okay.
    He had some scotch and some purple buds. So did I.
    Rode home. Somehow. Attacked the fridge, fell asleep, woke up and attacked the fridge again. Madness.

    Back in the day I lived in country towns and never had access to real acid. Real mushrooms - yes. Real good too.
    But acid goes off over time I think and when I got it it was more like speed, or maybe it was speed sold as acid. I dunno.
    Never hallucinated as far as I know. Not that sort of brain perhaps.
    But I did encounter a big burly crane driver of my acquaintance trying to net butterflies in a rainforest with his son after a mushy omelette. They weren't wearing tutus so maybe it was real.

    Who would ever suspect this person would enjoy acid? And, so much!

    Cary Grant Was Once One of LSD's Biggest Fans

    Cary Grant, Hollywood's non-controversial leading man for years, was once the self-appointed poster child for LSD, years before the psychedelic drug flooded the much-less-squeaky-clean Haight-Ashbury district. The Cary Grant-LSD story resurfaced with the Cannes premiere of Becoming Cary Grant (now on Showtime), a documentary that explores the iconic actor's experimentation with LSD.


    Grant was introduced to the psychedelic by his wife Betsy Drake and began to attend weekly sessions at an LSD clinic in 1958, where the drug was used in a psychiatric setting. (He had a few personal demons regarding his mother to sort out.) It worked—Grant happily spoke about the drug in interviews at the time, claiming "at last, I am close to happiness." He shared his trip stories: "In one LSD dream I imagined myself as a giant penis launching off from Earth like a spaceship," he said, according to The Guardian. His praise of LSD to Good Housekeeping also reportedly inspired Timothy Leary, the unofficial godfather of psychedelic research, to try the stuff.

    Rumor has it Grant himself did LSD 100 times over the course of three years, which coincides with his biggest movies: North by Northwest, which is a little trippy itself, and Charade. "That period when he is the biggest box office star in the world is also the period when he's taking LSD. He has reached this incredible level of total minimalism, inner peace. I'm sure the acid informed the acting," documentary producer Nick Ware told The Guardian.

    Research into LSD flared around this time, but bottomed out in the late-'60s after the government made it very clear that the combo of scientific discovery and drug use was not going to be a priority. Now, however, research into the benefits of psychedelics—for PTSD, depression, and a whole host of other problems—as well as the increasing cultural interest in micro-dosing makes Grant's pursuits seem less insane.





    Why Cary Grant Loved LSD

    The 60's and 70's was the time to experiment with drugs like that, LSD, Cocaine, etc..
    I've never touch any of the hard drugs and won't. Tried mushrooms once, had a bad trip and never again.

    In these times the legalization of pot for medical use, which many people use for pain are the drug of choice. It is crazy how many stores now just in my city you can buy marijuana in. Obviously, it is legalized in Canada, but it is the 'in' thing it seems.

    Um, I never said that it is a bad thing.
    But, yes there are more pot stores now than alcohol stores in my city. You have to buy alcohol at an LCBO and there are only two of them...and there are three or four pot stores in the city. I'm not saying in what I wrote that pot is worse than alcohol, but if you want to read into that, then that is up to you.

    Yes I forgot the Canadian liquor store setup. However generally most cities around the world have numerous alcohol stores.

    Sniff in the UK exploded in the 90s when you could get a gram for as little as 30 quid. Its popularity has never waned and it must only be second to weed given the number of people who like a toot on a night out.

    Not smaller cities... but it does suck to now wait in line to even get into an LCBO. Luckily I don't drink very often.
