The title is a reference to AL 2:22.

 

Anyone got a list of legal highs available in the UK?

Be very careful with so-called "legal highs", especially anything that purports to be a cannabis substitute, most of which will be either inert wastes of money, or else the very dodgy "JWH" cannabinoid compounds (aka "spice").

https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/neuroscience/jwh-018

Most "legal highs" are under-researched substances, many of which have turned out to be much more dangerous than the harmless but illegal substances they are meant to substitute for, such as cannabis, shrooms, and LSD.

The "JWH" compounds have almost universally very bad results. Reefer is still illegal in the UK, but is easily available there, and about a million times safer than any "legal high" claiming to offer similar effects. Shrooms grow in most places in the UK where there is cowshit, and are by far the safest psychedelic substance available, provided one has some minimal mycology knowledge and can tell blue from other colors.

.

I thought "spice" was illegal.  If not it will be, it crops up on the news now and again.

Of course, i am not super-familiar with UK drug laws, and The Man may well have criminalized "spice"/the various JWH compounds over there by now. If so, probably one of the few drug laws that make sense..

Just be VERY clear that LEGAL ≠  SAFE, nor is it the case that ILLEGAL = UNSAFE.

The USA Manput spice, JWH, and many similar compounds on the "Just Say No" list a while ago. I was lucky to have obtained some of these quite legal things when they were legal. I believe you sampled some when you cruised through here. None of these were "street deals," which is always risky. My purchases came straight from the chemical where-house with a detailed chemical/purity analysis. Only one product caused a side-effect, mild nausea, and sure enough, the literature warned of ... nausea.

Is LSD now renamed e? I've been trying to get hold of LSD, and I know that hipsters are "microdosing" on it, but no potential source has ever come through.

In case you aren't joking, "E" generally is short for "ecstasy", aka MDMA, a quasi-psychedelic amphetamine.

An old pal once referred to MDMA as "schoolgirl acid", and explained "It's like acid with training wheels on". Aside from the sexism of his initial formulation, i agree.

I think you are in the UK; find a cow-pasture, after reading up on mycology. According to an ex-GF, Devon is practically paved with Psilocybe semilanceata.

Alas, numbers have reduced in recent years due to changes in farming practices throughout the UK since about 2003. 20 years ago this was the case and a person could collect shopping bags full of them (not that anybody needs that much). However, find the right field, with livestock, preferably sheep, and the right sort of grass, poas and fescues rather than seeded ryegrasses.

It is my observation, although I have no empirical evidence to back it up, that semilanceata seems to prefer low forage value, low diversity, slightly overgrazed pastures, which is probably why they used to proliferate in the west and north of the UK.

Perhaps this is because they like a low competition ecosystem with regular deposits of organic fertiliser.

Hipsters? Try the entire technical staff of wizards in Silicon Valley, Home of the Borg. Well, ok, I guess you can call computer programmers hipsters. LSD is LSD and you're having a hard time finding it because it's illegal everywhere.

"ecstasy", aka MDMA, a quasi-psychedelic amphetamine.

And "E," aka Xtc, has been (and is now) approved for experimental use in treating PTSD in the USA.

"schoolgirl acid"

Right. But this schoolgirl stuff is superior to LSD in uncovering (evoking) repressed complexes. Less flash-bang, but (almost) instant access to the hidden demons.

I don't know about the technical aspects, but Oregon, and (lesssly in) Washington State, produced a bumper crop every time it rains (in the proper season). "Just look for a cow pasture the day after it rains; they are everywhere," I was told (in Oregon, by Oregoners).
