Episode 239: ethnopharmacology (aya 03)

This is the third part of a four part mini-series recorded at the World Ayahuasca Conference in Girona, Spain. In this part we are going to spend time with Dennis McKenna.

Dennis McKenna is an ethnopharmacologist, research pharmacognosist, lecturer and author. He is the brother of well-known psychedelics proponent Terence McKenna and is a founding board member and the director of ethnopharmacology at the Heffter Research Institute, a non-profit organization concerned with the investigation of the potential therapeutic uses of psychedelic medicines.

In this episode, apart from the interview, you’ll also get to hear Dennis talk about the book he was involved with called Ethnopharmacologic Search for Psychoactive Drugs: 50 Years of Research (1967-2017). Check out the book here: www.espd50.com

Episode 149: the honest drug book

In this episode we are going to talk drugs with the author of The Honest Drug Book Dominic Milton Trott. His book presents the hidden truth about a topic which touches the lives of almost everyone. It cuts through the blustering rhetoric of the war on drugs, and documents the facts about the subject in general, and about the individual drugs specifically. Check it out: www.honestdrugbook.com

Note: I make a comment on the #metoo movement in this episode, and it seems a few women fail to see my point. To be clear, I am not against the movement and I think it is essential for a change to happen. I simply pointed out that there are other issues in the world that no one EVER seems to care about. Currently in Congo more people have been murdered in the last 20 years, than Hitler killed in his camps... why?

So people can have smartphones and be able to tweet #metoo.

What is happening in Congo is an issue that is important to me, and I was simply pointing out that whilst #metoo is also very important, it would be nice to see the rich privileged world join hands and stop the atrocities that are happening just so we can REMAIN rich. If you do not understand this perspective I am sorry you got triggered.

I have a daughter and I am going to teach her #ifmetooIcutyourdickoff
