The orchestration of press, radio and television to create a continuous, lasting and total environment renders the influence of propaganda virtually unnoticed precisely because it creates a constant environment.”

I've done bath salts accidentally...worst experience of my life.

How does one draw during a DMT trip? I've done Dmt and I fell asleep uncontrollably...I don't see how he could have drawn during the trip.

lol

How does one do bath salts "accidentally"? :problem:

But as for the DMT, I'm guessing his tolerance is through the roof-

I don't know... *shrugs*

I can appreciate his artistic skills, but I don't think I would be wrong to say that the drawings are more a reflection of his attempt to medicate his own mental illness, than an artist's rendering of his experiences on drugs... and/or anything interesting he found under the kitchen sink, that he chose to ingest or inhale-

And because an antibiotic produces no altered state of mind, to the best of my knowledge-

The link shows that he did some of this 'experimenting' while hospitalized-

He indicated that once was for kidney problems, but I'm guessing that the other visits had something to do with mental illness... why?

    10mg Zyprexa (after 2 weeks in hospital)... Antipsychotic-

    Abilify / Xanax / Ativan (dosage unknown in hospital)... Antipsychotic / Benzodiazepines, respectively-

    Ativan / Haloperidol (doseage unknown in hospital)... Benzodiazapine/ Antipsychotic -

    60mg Geodon... Antipsychotic

    4mg Risperdol... Antipsychotic

    100mg Seroquel... Antipsychotic

    100mg Trazadone... Anti-depressant

Also...

The "Med-line"- :mrgreen:

Huffing computer duster, gas... lighter fluid-

And
Butane Honey Oil...


:problem:

People with mental issues/illness have been known to self-medicate, which is understandable... no one wants to feel like crap all of the time; but this seems to glorify partaking in some incredibly dangerous substances that can be lethal at certain doses, even though they are perfectly legal-

Someone told me to try a hit of their 'weed' it might not have been bath salts but it was certainly not weed.

Twas I who posted the original article on V.C. haha.

Bryan Lewis Saunders is a great artist. He is one of my favorites.

I am surprised no one posted the link to HIS website instead of some website describing a few of his portraits.

Here is the link to his self portraits. There are a bunch of categories, drugs being one of them.
