The Good Drugs Guide: “Asking Dr Shulgin “

Where do new mind-altering drugs come from? Who invents these things? And why? Well, most seem to have been invented by one man: Dr Alexander Shulgin. He’s an American biochemist who’s dedicated his life to the invention of stimulants, depressants, aphrodisiacs, empathogens, entactogens, uppers, downers. His rediscovery of a little-known chemical called MDMA made him famous. Now, 80, he and his wife and research partner, Anne, have much wisdom and knowledge to exclusively impart to listeners of the Wisdom intercut with news, chat, great music and lots of lots of cactus.
