Here is a collection of just some of his effusive output, much of it written as it happened. Follow Leary as he drops acid at a prison with inmates, raises his children while the adults are "swimming on a sea of jewels, " becomes incarcerated, escapes prison, and generally expounds upon the politics of mind-altering substances before and after they become "controlled substances" in the U.S.A. This is an authorized collection of Leary's writings and lectures, and includes a dozen photos from the Timothy Leary Archive. Drawings by Jared Power.


More Description


He famously exhorted people to "turn on, tune in, and drop out," but Timothy Leary had a lot more to say about drugs a lot more. Leary on Drugs compiles every interesting thing he ever said about the subject. Drawing from Leary s books, interviews, magazine articles, and scholarly journals, the book includes essays, quotes, and stories, ranging from his first acid trip and the sociology of LSD to drug war hysteria, the right to get high, and advice on using psychedelics responsibly."
