    Even if drugs alone could cause psychosis, its only in the industrial age of mass produced human personalities that the “symptoms” of psychosis are considered? a “disorder”. This is a state of consciousness I would like to achieve but only temporarily because I do not deny the harm that over controlled society does to those who suffer from control freak society rather than some monolaterally declared “disorder”.

    also Scottish Licencing has been (since around 2006? I think) as follows …No alchohol may be sold after 10PM or before 10AM, no alchohol may be sold before 12PM on sunday. This is acompanied by the law that procecuites any cashier etc that sells alchohol to a known alchoholic (while already under the influnce of alchohol). – The idea that someone can walk in to a supermarket and get sold anything containing alchohol at 7am is sheer nonsense the 80s yes maybe, 70s definately .. in 2012 NO
