First, a radical history of the Pharmacratic Inquisition, the attempt to suppress the direct ecstatic experience of entheogens with placebo religious sacraments, and the coming Entheogenic Reformation. Plus, a delightful dictionary of sacred inebriants and their mind states, with definitions and quotes from classic drug literature.
