"The use of hallucinogens -- nonaddictive narcotics that act on the mental processes in such away as to produce temporary altered states of consciousness -- has received a great deal of attentionin recent from both journalists and scientists; yet we know very little about how these drugs work, what dangers they involve, and how to control them. What we have learned is that these powerful substances have potentials for good and evil, and that which potential is to be realized depends as much on who uses them, in what contexts, for what purposes, and under what kinds of contral as ift does on the chemical properties of the substance itself. This conclusion is clearly demonstrated in the ten essays in this book, all by scholars of world-wide reputation, specializing in one or another hallucinogen currently in use in a non-Western society.".
