2C-B, MDMA, LSD, mescaline.. all the good things!

So this morning's table discussion at breakfast centred around the measures taken to reduce smoking and at what point they tip over into marginalisation or dangerous discrimination. I think this is when the sanctions against smoking crate a situation where they are disproportinately borne by groups who are already marginalised - so if it were criminalised, the cost to Maori smokers would be greater than that to white people in the same way that Maori people caught in possession of cannabis are more likely to be arrested, charged and imprisoned. Likewise poor people are more likely to suffer dire consequences of an extreme price increase than those on higher incomes. Etc. That's my take on it anyway.

I also bought a picture. I couldn't help it, this thing gave me a visceral reaction. So much so that I'm a little afraid to hang it, but it's the most accurate depiction of a particular experience that I've ever seen, and not obviously psychedelic in that hippy dippy kind of way. Oh, and some books. Oops.

Tonight, there will very likely be dancing. Tomorrow, I will very likely be a zombie. And tomorrow night, I'll very likely be on a plane! Zomg.
