In America too, over 100,000 people died last year from prescription drugs, (including 1,000 suiciding on Prozac alone!) and not one death from herbal medicine!
Yet, here in Australia, Coltsfoot is still prohibited We did keep a range of good informative books but, unfortunately, ‘THEY’ are now banning books as well on psycho-active herbs and drugs, their effects, their CONTRA INDICATIONS (!?) and their cultivation (for example, they have now banned beautiful herb books such as ‘The Magic and Ritual Use of Herbs‘, ‘Psychedelic Shamanism’, ‘The Magic and Ritual Use of Aphrodisiacs’, ‘Psychedelic Encyclopaedia’ and many more great books!) This is not only a dangerous political practice, but dangerous for the inevitable unknowing consumer as well! This particular form of censorship is particularly insidious

disposition posted outside will warn of the approach of strangers, and
some "anti-burglar" strengthening of the doors will further slow up
the forces of evil.
At the time of this writing (fall '94), federal and most state courts
that I know of have mandatory minimum sentences for LSD that count
the weight of the carrier in the total weight of the drugs seized. Only
politicians could be so stupid and still keep their jobs. This screwed-up
state of affairs has a strong bearing on the best way to move the acid.
It means that large blocks of acid are best sold as grams of the crystal
sealed in glass to someone who will then make blotter out of them.
The time-exposure is thereby greatly cut down, even if a lower price is
Smaller operators looking to turn on a few thousand of their
closest friends would do best to drip the product onto sugar cubes,
freeze them during storage and move the product as a high priced
gourmet treat. Dilution with alcohol and moving the stuff as liquid is
not good, as even at freezer temperatures acid does not keep well in
solution. Once locked up in a sugar cube, the tender molecule is

protected. Producing thousands of sugar cube doses in one day is an
easy, though tedious, operation. One starts with a burette and lots of
sugar cubes (not purchased at the same place, for God's sake!).
Next, the average size of droplet delivered from this burette must be
measured, and the concentration of LSD tartrate in water solution
calculated so that one drop contains 100 micrograms of acid. The
burette in my lab delivers 188 drops per 10 ml, so each drop is .0532
ml. The size of the drops delivered from a burette depends upon the
size of the drip-tip on the burette, the viscosity of the liquid, its
surface tension and the molecular attraction of the fluid to the drip-tip.
The addition of a little acid to the water solution may change these
factors, so the preliminary results obtained from pure water should be
checked against the size of droplet one gets with LSD solution. In any
case, the calculation goes like this:
The weight measurement assumes LSD of high purity. Proper dose
size should be checked by dropping a test sugar cube. This bio-assay
should be done by someone other than the cooker, as he may have
been chronically exposed to LSD during manufacture, and immune to its

That route has several drawbacks which make it impractical for
clandestine synthesis. The first and most important problem is the
availability of 2,4,5-trimethoxybenzaldehyde. This substance is not
exactly a linchpin of chemical commerce. So far as I know, it has one
use: making TMA-2. Those same folks who gave me the hassle over
the purchase of Rochelle salts will certainly report a shipment of
