​Today’s weirdness comes courtesy of the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, which quoted one of my “Toke SignalsSeattle Weekly medical marijuana dispensary reviews in the search warrant affidavit for a Seattle collective which was raided on Tuesday.
The review, which was a positive one for Seattle Cannabis Co-Op, was printed in the Weekly back in March. It’s not apparent why the DEA would choose to quote the review in their search warrant affidavit, since none of the alleged improprieties mentioned elsewhere in the warrant were even hinted at in the review.
But there it was to greet me this morning, before I’d even had time to fortify myself with a cup of coffee: “DEA Medical-Marijuana Dispensary Search Warrant Quotes Seattle Weekly Toke Signals Column.”

​Even a single, low-dose psychedelic experience can produce changes in identity and transpersonal awareness that last a lifetime. How and why does this happen?

When most of us take psychedelics like LSD, sure, it’s one of the strangest — and most meaningful — experiences we’ve ever had, and as we move on with our lives, we tend to just classify what happened under the general category of “that was weird.”

Some folks, though — those of a more analytical and scientific bent — aren’t content to do only that. James L. Kent, author of Psychedelic Information Theory: Shamanism in the Age of Reason definitely belongs to this more analytical category of trippers. These folks want to analyze the psychedelic trip right down to which neurons were activated, how, and why.
