Endtrip

Endtrip is a visionary short film about the breathtaking mind trip of a hard drug overdosed girl. I experienced with various kind of opioids in the 1970s and I overdosed once, undergoing a total black out without any kind of visionary activity and then waking up in a hospital room.....but  this film is clearly just an artistic representation of the human passage from life to death. In any case a great, engaging example of great psychedelic 3D art....
See it on full screen.....

Deal: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams and Drugs with the Grateful Dead promises to be a real interesting and involving book for all music lovers and "countercultural" and "psychedelicized" people, with firsthand accounts of a special period and a special band...

Marley Natural

Bob Marley is to become the face of the world’s first international marijuana brand.
The late reggae superstar’s family has teamed up with a private equity firm to launch Marley Natural, which will offer “heirloom Jamaican cannabis strains” inspired by those Marley enjoyed.
“My dad would be so happy to see people understanding the healing power of the herb,” said Cedella Marley, Bob’s daughter. “He viewed the herb as something spiritual that could awaken our well-being, deepen our reflection, connect us to nature and liberate our creativity.”
She said Marley Natural was an “authentic way to honour his legacy by adding his voice to the conversation about cannabis and helping end the social harms caused by prohibition..."

(While Marley Natural can possibly be the first "international" marijuana brand, people in Colorado (USA) can already buy "cannabis filter cigarettes,", for example the Cranfords )
