What kind of music are you listening to? I listen to everything, man. I do. I listen a lot of classic rock, for whatever reason. But I've been listening to a lot of Kanye West over the last few weeks. Tell me what he's talking about. Kanye? Yeah. Well, he's talking about a lot of crazy shit. He actually talked about DMT in one of his recent songs. Really? You think he did that before? I think he did. Oh, man. Well, I know he's friends with Kid Cudi. Kid Cudi's been in here and Kid Cudi's had some psychedelic experiences. Yeah. Once you go there, you don't want to do nothing else again. Well, it puts it all in the perspective. It lets you see that as much as this thing seems to be important, this is all temporary and you're a part of forever. And it also allows you to become comfortable with death. Yeah. Yeah. You know who's had that? Larry Hagman. Remember that guy, Dallas? Yeah. From JR from Dallas. JR from Dallas. He did an interview with CNN once. And I dream of Jeannie as well. Yeah, that's right. He sprung it on him on CNN once. He was talking about how he did acid. He took a big dose of acid and he's never worried about death ever again. That it just alleviated his worry about passing on. That's wild. That's just because I felt the same way. I said, well, it doesn't matter anymore. Yeah. I think DNT even more specifically because they think it might be- Yeah, why does it affect the mind that way? What causes it to affect the mind that way? They don't totally know. That it make it visually, you know, visualize everything. They don't totally know. They know that your brain makes it. They know that your body makes it. They should say they know that it's producing your liver and their lungs and there's some evidence now because they found it in rats that the pineal gland produces it, which is like that's the third eye of Eastern mysticism that gland actually in rats. They've proven produces DMT and they think it does so in people to you know, once I did, I wanted to do it again and again and again. They say you shouldn't do too much. My man, I got a, you know, grass. What's going on here? Why am I feeling it? Why why did this in a weird way like humbled you? I don't think you should listen to the people say you shouldn't. You know too much. I think you do it as much as you want. That's what I agree with. Yeah, I agree. You could handle it. If you can handle being like Tyson, you can handle doing DMT. Yes, you can do. Yeah, that's what I think I'm going. I'm going in that direction. Well, I mean, it's not something you do all day every day, but you can learn a lot from it. It's in its it's very beneficial and very strange that it's illegal. You know that you it's illegal. Yeah, I noticed that even though I had a joke about it because your body's making it. So everybody's holding. We all have it. You know, it's illegal, but it's like making blood illegal. Everybody has it in the wild where they go to scenario. Did they find these totes? Yeah. Yeah, I've never experienced it from the toad of only watching television with the way they extract. Yeah, they grab him and they squeeze their buses pimples and busting on the glass of mirror and then you take it off and he let it harden. Yeah, you they let it dry in the Sun. They scrape it off with a razor blade. Yes. I've only had it synthetically made in a laboratory. You used to be able to buy it online. You used to be able to buy like a fucking can of it like this big enough to get like a whole state high. Buy it online. It was totally legal. Incredible. Yeah, it's weird. It's bizarre that it's illegal. Well, they would say not for human consumption. I don't know what the fuck you're doing with it. If you're not using it for human consumption, but you used to be able to buy them. Never felt anything like that before. No, nothing like that. Makes me not want to do anything. Nothing else can supersede that. How long ago did it happen? Around two months ago. Yeah. Did you write down what happened after it happened or did you record it? No, I wish I did. Yeah, I wish I did. Yeah, me too. If you collect it goes away like a dream, right? It comes off. You know, you're so scared. You know, it's tough stuff like this to me like no, no, no, yeah. That's not a start. No, I don't want to be this. I said, hey, I want this to stop now. I got like, hey, you're on the ride. And I'm like, no, no, no, yeah. I love it. I love you. I love you. I love you. Yeah. Love everybody. Yeah, so spast out. Yeah. Did you have a hard time letting go? At the beginning, I was fighting it. I was like, stop. I wanted to stop now. I just jumped, stop this shit now. Stopping. The guy was like, hey, the show, I'm like, I can't do it. You got to go for the ride, dude. And it was like, oh man. It's like I'm dying. Things are going on. I'm seeing the Aztec things. I'm seeing toads. I'm seeing weird animals. I think these flies. It's just like another chamber. It's boom, flashing. Yeah, boom. Yeah, you're gone. It's like the rocker you taking off. Boom. Yeah, it's beyond your imagination. Yeah, that's inconceivable. Can't even explain it to no one. Well, I'm hoping that they start with psilocybin because I know maps. They're doing some great work with that trying to get these things legalized, especially they're doing MDMA studies with veterans and people with PTSD and they're having great results. They're moving into psilocybin. They would love to get psilocybin legal and it's up for ballot. I think was in Oregon. Is that where it is? It's up for I think Oregon is up for legalization this year and it may be eventually in California as well. They made how you going to do with that. It should be legal. Doesn't kill anybody. It should be. It's not a bad thing if they regulate it. If they make it for therapeutic use and just set up centers where experts can show but they shouldn't make it prohibitive for people to own it or even grow their own. It's not a bad idea to set up places where people can do it under a professionals care a shaman's care or physicians care. That's a good idea, but making it illegal is a bad idea because it helps a lot of people, you know, people think of it as a party drug. They think you're going to do mushrooms and freak out and go fucking run around naked. I was on my you do my shoes. I love mushrooms. Yeah, well psilocybin and DMT are very closely related chemically. All those really potent psychedelic drugs are very closely related. They all break down in some similar path inside your brain and give you that that weird ego dissolving experience. You know, that's one thing. Yeah, most of the drugs.
