Australian Government considering banning hundreds of plants – Insane but true!

Acacia pycnantha - Australia's national flower on a postage stamp

Strewth and tie me kangaroo down sport – In a novel way to expand the ‘War on Drugs‘ the Australian Government according to this report in the website, is looking to outlaw hundreds and possibly thousands of plant species that contain (even in microscopic quantities) chemicals such as DMT. Even the national flower (Acacia pycnantha)  a symbol of Australia itself is threatened by this ban, and the list goes on and on and on.

Of course an irony in this, is that DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) is also found in the brains of mammals and humans. So the next step is to ban mammals and er…humans!

To quote Terence McKenna from ‘Food of the Gods’; “We can begin the restructuring of thought by declaring legitimate what we have denied for so long. Lets us declare Nature to be legitimate. The notion of illegal plants is obnoxious and ridiculous in the first place.”  Amen to that!
