                     "Peyote ( Lophophora williamsii ) is an entheogenic cactus which contains the psychedelic phytochemical known as mescaline. It's been almost one hundred years since this compound was first isolated from the cactus. The prohibition of Peyote went into effect in the year 1966. The cacti, the seeds, and the alkaloid mescaline are Schedule 1 according to the Controlled Substances Act. This means that just about anything involving Peyote is a federal crime punishable by prison time, which is as diabolical as it is ignorant. Members of the Native American Church can legally use it, due to religious freedom laws."(Gottlieb 1997 5,6) Because of the Native Americans history of being abused by the US Government, i'm glad that they are granted this right.


There are certain rare exceptions to this prohibition. "Four states have enacted statutory exemptions which protect the freedom of any person who chooses to use peyote for religious purposes. Oregon is one such state, and has also legalized the recreational use of Marijuana. In Oregon, you can use peyote as long as its "in a manner that is not dangerous to the health of the user or others who are in the proximity of the user." Similar laws are active in Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico."(Gottlieb 1997 7) You should still always check local laws before considering embarking on this mind and spirit manifesting journey.


Like Marijuana though, these state laws are a paradox to federal laws, and are subject to interference from federal agencies. Peyote is something the federal government considers illegal no matter what, with the rare exception of the Native American church. So one must always be aware that they face potential legal dangers, even if their state claims for this cactus to be legal. Local civilians can always unite to petition corrupt laws out of existence. I hope to see a revolution against these laws just as those against Cannabis.


It's good to see states protecting innocent lives from diabolical drug laws. I think that the use of any psychoactive or psychedelic plant or cacti should be legal. If the public was thoroughly and honestly educated on these sacred plant teachers, and they were made readily available from reputable sources, I think the world may be a better place. I'm judging this of course on the research that's been conducted over the years. People across the world credit Peyote and other entheogens for changing their lives for the better. Even the atheist experiences mystical and spiritual revelations under their influence.


I'm not encouraging illegal behavior yet I must say that this prohibition and criminalization against Peyote and people who choose to have anything to do with it is just absolutely absurd. No one deserves to spend decades in federal prison because they chose to trip out on a cactus. I can find no evidence that anyone has ever died or even been harmed from the use of Peyote. How can this corrupt law continue to be in effect? I believe it's a waste of resources and prison space to prosecute and jail people over such a harmless and spiritual act.


Fortunately there are many modern researchers who are interested in showing the world, politicians, and government agencies that these psychoactive plants and drugs have more positive effects on society than anyone could imagine. A group called MAPS ( Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies: MAPS ) is "a 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana."


They have conducted many studies on everything from Psilocybin Mushrooms, to MDMA, LSD, Cannabis, Mescaline & Cacti, Ibogaine, Ayahuasca & DMT, and others. Their website offers the public a large number of academic resources. These resources are great for writing research papers, or calling out the haters on these controversial matters. With their help, the world should one day have legal and safe access to the most therapeutic substances on the face of the earth. It's sad that the best medicines have been made illegal.
