After attending the Breaking Convention conference, Erik Davis critiques the state of psychedelic discourse.

In the United Kingdom, it has been technically illegal for the last few years to distribute foil for the purpose of smoking recreational drugs. This month, the UK's Home Office issued a notification newly authorizing distribution of foils as a harm reduction measure. (See:

Evidence shows that injecting drugs is more dangerous than smoking or vaporizing, and thus encouraging IV drug users to smoke their drugs (off uncontaminated metal foils) reduces disease transmission health risks. Though there were no prosecutions of harm reduction groups for selling smoking foils, some stopped offering them due to the Home Office's stated opposition. Exchange Supplies continued sales throughout the UK's previous rules against it.
