The Mad Hatter Memorial Page
This page contains extremely important information, please read!
The Mad Hatter's philosophy is simple. Bring the truth to those who seek it. The Mad Hatter is not endorsed by any group, although many have input. The Hatter is a part of its creator's idea of a "life lurking force." That is a force that witnesses life and just compiles it. Synthesizes it with past experience and future trends. It is a part of us all, but yet a force in itself. It is beyond our mortal selves.
The specific mind behind The Hatter, will be called the Chesher Cat. This represents the part of the creator's spirit that joins that of that force and becomes that of the Hatter. The Chesher Cat makes no guaranties on the quality of the information because every human body reacts differently, however, a decade of research has been expended at the creator's expense, with graduate level education in this field.
The Hatter is simply a spokesperson for our collective knowledge. The Chesher Cat welcomes all information and reports from everyone. Comments and opinions, if constructive will be incorporated. You can take credit, or just simply have the Hatter say it. He is the anonymous in us all.
This site should be continuously growing. It will therefore be changing as information becomes available. Check back here as a regular, and maybe you will be a contributor in this grand experiment. sEE you all later, sooner too, I hope.
Do not let anyone talk you into taking any chemical. Peer pressure should be the LAST reason you EVER take a chemical or do anything. The worst thing you can do is to take something you don't want too. Once taken there is not turning back. Chemicals can be intense, so please remember this.
Please read the WARNINGS on all of the pages. They contain information you need to know. They will vary between substances. The basic warning appears after the next extremely important message.
How do we win the War on Drugs?
The first thing we need to do
is start using a little different language
when it comes to our fight with the current governmental status of "drugs."
The use of the word "drugs" is a pretty loaded thing to do. Let's face it,
the public has been effectively (although patchy and somewhat faltering)
brainwashed that drugs are "evil, wicked, mean and nasty." We need to use
different terms. Like when I am discussing the entheogens that we use for spiritual reasons I call them "sacraments." In a population that has 90% belief in a Deity and 80% who consider themselves religious and 70% that pray at least
occasionally, who would be opposed to someone taking the sacraments? Tell
the Catholics they can't have their wine and wafers and see what war that
This is a little harder to do with things like cocaine, speeds, heroine, and
the other various chemicals that definitely do have not only stigmas
surrounding them but definite medical and social problems surrounding them
too. While it would not really hurt my feelings if these were not
re-legalized the simple fact is prohibition does not work and the fact they
have been criminalized is currently leading to horrific crime and the
underground that goes along with the black-market.
Why not refer to these as OTC medications? All of them do have a legitimate
usage -- speeds do help those with allergies and asthma and people driving
to vacation spots, heroine helps those in chronic pain where morphine
tolerance it too high as with cancer patients (the gov is actually using it
some now) and the other chemicals do have medical uses-- but the key with
these is the same key to OTC medications: they are for use not abuse. As a
general rule OTC medications are not abused. The same would be true if all
the non-entheogenic chemicals were re-legalized -- at least abuse would drop
but there are always people who will abuse things. I hear of people taking
way to many vitamins and laxatives which is abuse and causes just as much
damage as the criminalized non-entheogenic chemicals (OTC medications).
The second thing is that "drugs" have been legal for billions of years. It
has only been the last 90 that cocaine, heroine (& opium) and 35 that the
others have been made illegal to secure political power against the
movements in the 60's. This needs to be brought out very clearly. We need
everything re-legalized, not decriminalized or legalized -- we want them re-legalized. It might not seem like a big difference when reading this but
psychologically it makes a huge impact in the thinking models people use.
It also demonstrates that they were legal until the recent past and reminds
people that all their illegality has done is take away our freedom and
create the current situation.
Sorry for this little rant, but I truly believe that much of what is causing
our "side" problems with our movement is the language we are using. If
"they" define the language they will always win. Language is the heart of
communication and thought. If we re-define everything with language that
suits "our" side of this war then we will have won one of the hardest
battles. From that point on, we will begin dominating the thought/thinking
and communication that surrounds the subject.
We will also be free of the limitations that the brainwashing of the past 35
(to 90) years has instilled -- people are against drugs, not sacraments or
OTC medications. People are against crime and the black-market, which
surrounds drugs, not medications and sacraments which needs to be
something that is brought up constantly --without drugs there is no black-
market and crime. If anything, money, power and privilege are drugs and I
agree that we should all "just say no" and make the actual drugs illegal

Read These Warnings For Your Safety:
WARNING: Do not use any substance if there is a history or the potential of mental or physical illness unless it has been shown to improve your condition or attitude. Do not use substances if you are on psychotropic pharmaceuticals or other types of drugs until you have researched possible interactions.
WARNING: LSA Has uterus-stimulating properties. DO NOT USE IF PREGNANT!
NEVER eat ANY Mushroom, unless you are absolutely certain it is the one you want. VERIFY its identification with an expert Mycologist. This is not a recreational experience. The Shamanistic "DEATH (and REBIRTH) EXPERIENCE" is called that because that is what it is. Always have a few friends as monitors there to assure you that you are not dying. RESEARCH this before experimenting. Plan a full day for your experience. This is not a scheduled substance. Responsible and careful use will keep it that way.
WARNING: INCORRECT MUSHROOM IDENTIFICATION CAN BE FATAL!
Driving under the influence of ANY substance is highly discouraged. When YOU do this YOU take others lives into your hands and YOU DO NOT have the right to do that. Do what you will to yourself. The lack of responsible use of drugs is one of the reasons they are illegal. REMEMBER THAT THESE PLANTS ARE SACRAMENTS, SO TREAT THEM THAT WAY, and they will treat you with respect and love in return. Listen with a clean mind and a heart seeking knowledge and the plants will bless you in ways that you CANNOT imagine. Plant consciousness is a self ruling consciousness, and therefore demands responsibility. Freedom requires responsibility; it demands it. When the people are not responsible for themselves, the government (State) steps in and does it for them, and so restricts every bodies way of life and personal beliefs.
This page is not advocating the use of any particular substance. Chemical use should be an individual decision made after much research and thought. To deny people the ability to explore their religion and take their sacraments is horrible. For this reason, an honest source of information is required. There are many dangers in all things in life and this is not any different. This information is provided as a public service to educate. It is built on experience, research and submissions.
