In this episode, Joe Moore interviews Seth Rosenberg: Washington DC-based mycologist and anti-drug war advocate who worked on DC’s decriminalization Initiative 81. Rosenberg was arrested by 11 SWAT agents in a case involving five federal agencies, presumably for posting pictures about how to grow mushrooms, and then purchasing (legal) mescaline-containing plants online. He tells his story, then discusses the beginnings of (and racism in) the drug war; the fundamental problem with the “grow, gather, give” concept of the decrim movement; Dr. Carl Hart; why biotech companies racing to create new compounds likely won’t last; IV ketamine and concerns over ketamine being overhyped; the fluidity of morality over time; the unintended segregation within the psychedelic space; and the very scary reality that no one can really hide anything from the government.
