Research at the Frontiers of the Mind
Psychedelics have the unique ability to transform fundamentally the very functions that we consider uniquely human: the way we think, feel, communicate, and solve problems. They shift our cognitive and symbolic capacities, our aesthetic sensibilities, and our linguistic and imaginative abilities; the very kinds of brain functions that constitute the fabric of what we experience as mind. Because psychedelic agents are similar to natural substances already present in the human brain, the careful study of their effects upon brain function and experiences provides access to primary states of brain and mind and the connections between them. For these reasons, research with psychedelic substances offers an unparalleled opportunity for understanding the relationship of brain to mind in ways not possible using other methods.

Successes and Failures of the "War on Drugs" "The drug war was a dismal failure in its dealings with the poor. It was, arguably, a success among the middle and upper classes, who developed an attitude intolerance toward drug use during the war. It is not at all clear, however, that the war on drugs was responsible for this shift. The government also chose a very costly way of waging its war, and made the states pay for it. The large number of arrests and the overcrowding of jails did nothing to stop people from doing or selling drugs, because criminals did very little time, and there was no effort made to rehabilitate those convicted of drug related crimes."
