The Politics of Consciousness

A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

by Steve Kubby

Steve Kubby says:

The War on Drugs is in reality a War on Freedom. It Is a war that brings misery to millions ol Americans — far out of proportion to any real throat from the drugs themselves. Through the misguided efforts lo stem the rising Iide of drug use, our government has created a lucrative industry for gangsters and violent criminals while generating Iho wider use ol harder, ever more addictive and violent drugs. Under the banner of the War on Drugs, wo have subsidized criminal activities and created a new police state, with more people behind bars than any other country in the world. Over 400.000 people are arrested each year tot marijuana possession. Right now, at least 600,000 of our fellow citizens are rotting in American jails for acts that would nover havo been considered crimes unlit sixty years ago. H Is to these American POWs, these prisoners of the War on Freedom, that (his book is dedicated.

“We claim to be a diverse, pluralistic, multicultural society, and yet we have ‘Zero Tolerance' for personal consumption of natural, psychoactive plants and fungi. We hold ourselves lo be the showcase of freedom for all the world, and yet wo have more of our citizons behind bars than any other country on Earth. Our politicians would havo you bolleve that we are a sick society that broods dangerous criminals, when Iho truth is Ihose cowardly career polilicians havo criminalized more activities than any other society. Il's a nasty web of suspicion, paranoia, and forfeiture inlondod lo distract the public from the gross incompetence of politicians who have bankrupted our economy, destroyed many of our civil liberties, and created a reign of terror.

'Yes, drugs can be dangerous, but not nearly as dangerous as armed government agents who trash the Bill ol Rights, kick down doors, seize private property and drag otherwise honest and decent citizens off to jail. Our Founding Fathers would never havo allowed this War on Freedom and neither should we. It’s time for us lo stop playing on people's fears and come up with a saner policy on drugs. It's time to end Iho madness and tree our American prisoners of war.

"Drugs are dangerous, but Ihose who tell you that drugs are Public Enemy Number One are creating a smoke screen to hide the real Issues. This country is in serious trouble. The government that is now in power is in open violation of the Constitution, Police and government agents have suspended the Bill of Rights and now seize a billion dollars a year from helpless citizens. Americans, even those who do not use drugs, now live In fear of secret police from the IRS, FDA, DEA, FBI. CIA and ATF who can lako away everyth Ing you own and not even charge you with a crime. DARE agents are paid $90,000 a year to urge school children to turn in their parents, friends and family members who may be smoking pot at home."

Here Is what has already been said about Steve Kubby's The Politics of Consciousness:

"...brings the issue of drugs and freedom out of the closet and places it where it needs lo be, right In the middle of the turn of the millennium agenda of the American society, if the pursuit of happiness, enshrined in our nation’s founding documents, means anything, il means the right to explore one‘s own mind using traditional substances and approaches. The Politics Of Consciousness is long overdue and well done. ’— Terence McKenna, author of Food Of The Gods

"Explains in simple and compelling terms why we must end the insane War On Drugs,'—Eugene Schoenfeld, M.D.

"The Politics of Consciousness is a rallying cry to launch a patriotic campaign of national liberation and recapture our freedom of thought. Profound in its Implications."—Chris Conrad, author of Hemp: Lifeline To The Future

Loompanics Unlimited is very proud to oiler our readers Steve Kubby's The Politics Of Consciousness — a homemade “Patriot" missile that strikes a winning blow for life, liberty, and the pursuit of inner happiness. It is fiercely patriotic and It’s like nothing you have read before.

Killing Time

The Autobiography of Paul Feyerabend

by Paul Feyerabend

Killing Time Is the story of an extraordinary life. Finished only weeks before Paul Feyerabend's death, it is the self-portrait of one of this century’s most original and Influential intellectuals.

Trained in physics and astronomy, Feyerabond was best known as a philosopher of science. But he emphatically was not a builder of theories or a writer of rules. Rather, his fame was in powerful, plain-spoken critiques of “big" science and 'big* philosophy. In landmark essays and books, and in legendary lectures, Feyerabend gave voice to a radically democratic ‘epistemological anarchism*: he argued forcefully that there is not one way to knowledge but many principled paths; not one truth or one rationality but different, competing pictures of the workings of the world. ‘Anything goes," he said about the ways of science in his most famous book, Against Method. And he meant it.

Although not written as an intellectual autobiography, Killing Time chronicles the people, ideas, and conflicts of sixty years. Feyerabend writes frankly of complicated relationships with his mentor Kari Popper and his friend and frequent opponent Imre Lakatos, and his reactions to a growing reputation as the “worst enemy of science.” He is characteristically self-critical and matter-of-fact, whether about the controversy he regularly provoked or the doubts ha had about his own Ideas. ‘I never 'denigrated' reason, whatever that Is," he writes, ‘only some petrified and tyrannical version of it. Nor did I assume my critique was the end of the matter.”

Feyerabend's legacy is immense: the sea change in the way we understand science would have been Impossible without him. Contentious, often unforgiving, Feyerabend here Is also reflective, even lyrical about the pleasures of philosophy. Rarely has an Intellectual of this stature told his story with such openness, honesty, or joy,

World Guide to Nude Beaches and Resorts

by Lee Baxandall

Lee Baxandall's World Guide To Nude BeachesAnd Resorts gives you thousands of choice sites and contacts spanning the globe — mostly illustrated in brilliant color — complete with accurate directions, invaluable local customs, and witty lore gathered from over twenty years of Nude Beach and Resort adventuring over six continents. From the author's Introduction:

“Relaxation or active recreation without garments — what the British call 'costumes' — and without a sense of shame is today, for much of the civilized world, an uncontroversial amenity.

“Indeed, one mark of a civilized country is its nude and topfree beaches.

“It seems almost inconceivable, given the present acceptance, that earlier In this century a boachgoer who exposed a bare knee or shoulder from a cumbersome bathing costume invited arrest.

“It has been said that self acceptance is largely an extension of body acceptance. Social nudity permits us to enhance our awareness of the reality, not merely the idea, of how much alike and similarly vulnerable we are. Discovering this, we may leam to control our lear of the gaze of another.

“Alienating barriers of social role and economic class, sex role and gender preference are reduced as we dispose of the trappings of difference, privilege and fear. Individuality can be strengthened without arrogance; Integrity can be recovered.

"The presence of our bodies—of breast and genital vulnerability in a natural context, 'Nalurism' — contributes to perspective and health. When the culture Into which we are bom strays too far from nature's laws, we suffer. A 'naturalization' is in order. This will, conversely, make it possible to more completely 'humanize' our culture.

“This book Is a guide to opportunities for you and your family and friends to enjoy recreation in the nude. And why should you and they not try II? You cannot imagine the taste of an apple if you haven't tasted one. It is no different with a nude beach or resort."

See (in full glorious color!) and Experience:

o France's clothing-free City: Cap d'Agde

O Florida's full-service nudist resorts

O Nudist Clubs in most States & Provinces

O California's elegant Hideaways

O Buenos Aires to Alaska, Bali to London

Utopias on Puget Sound 1885-1915

by Charles Pierce LeWarne

James A. Farley's famous toast “to the forty-seven slates and the soviet of Washington" Introduces and establishes the tone for this study of radicalism. LeWarne finds the roots of that radicalism In the five communitarian experiments he discusses. With events such as the Everett massacre and the Seattle general strike prominent In local history, Washington has a long radical heritage. The author demonstrates that the Influence of a coterie of liberals and radicals centered on Puget Sound in such communities as Home, Burley, Equality, Freeland, and Port Angeles was felt in the state long after the “utopias* they came Io colonize ceased to exist.

‘In Utopias On Puget Sound 1885-1915 Charles Pierce LeWame analyzes the fortunes and misfortunes of five communitarian settlements: Puget Sound Co-operative Colony, Equality, Freeland, Burley and Home. Utilizing a variety of sources, many of them obscure and fragmentary, he skillfully weaves them together to describe the origins, philosophies, personnel, achievements, internal stresses, and ultimate causes for the dissolution of each of the colonies... LeWame has made an important contribution to American social history. ’— Pacific Historical Review

Thoroughly documented and indexed, this is an absorbing account of a little-known but important period in the long history of the liberal traditionin Washington Slate. "■—The Pacific Historian

bolo’ bolo

by P.M.

New Edition With an Author0's Apology

This challenging and unusual book advocates the "bolo’ as the basic form of society — self-sufficient communities with free travel and free trade among them, and individuals moving about as it pleases them. But bolo' bolo is far more than a mere blueprint for how everyone is supposed to have to live—change and adaptability are built into the system.

“The name of the monster that we have let grow and that keeps our planet In its grips is: The Planetary Work-Machine. If we want Io transform our spaceship into an agreeable place again, we've got to dismantle this Machine, repair the damage it has done, and come Io some basic agreements on a new start. ...The machine Is built on its inner contradictions: workers/capital; private capital/stale capital (capitallsmAsocialism); development/underdevelopmont; misery/wasle; war/peace; womon/men; etc. The Machine is not a homogenous structure; it uses its internal contradictions to expand its control and to refine its instruments. Unlike fascist or theocratic systems or like in Orwell's 1984, Ihe Work-Machine permits a 'sane' level of resistance, unrest, provocation and rebellion. It digests unions, radical parties, protest movements, demonstrations and democratic changes of regimes."

Unlike most political books, bolo'bolotranscends traditional left/right analysis (which is always co-opted by The Machine), and examines the nature of the forces that compose the reality we all have to inhabit.

Smokeless Marijuana

1995 by August Sulemi

Nineteen ninety-five is a rare and unusual time in the nearly sixty-year prohibition of the Cannabis plant in the U.S.A. It is a time where thirty-five million educated and intelligent adults in the U.S.A. regularly use the leaf and buds for recreational and medicinal purposes. It is a time where many millions more are recognizing the tremendous value of this plant for paper, clothing, food, fuel, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It is also a bizarre time when a plant with such far-reaching and monumental value, which has become the »ccond-largest cash crop in (he U.S.A., is still remarkably and irexplicably illegal. And most importantly it is a time to say no tc the bureaucrats who perpetrate this atrocity of Cannabis prohibition.

Consider these facts (mostly gleaned from High Times) about the thirty-five million marijuana (Cannabis) consumers in the U.S.A. One out of six is over 50 years old. 18% hold doctoral degrees, and a full 70% are college graduates. Their average I.Q. is 17 points above the national average. They arc considerably healthier than their non-marijuana-using counterparts, and they suffer from cancer and cardiovascular diseases at a rate 40% lower than the average. More than one- third are vegetarians. Nearly three-quarters do not smoke tobacco.

It is for this intelligent, educated, health-conscious and somewhat aging group that 1 write this article. The only danger from marijuana other than its senseless illegality has been the common method of ingesting it by smoking. Smokeless Marijuana will enable them to reduce or even eliminate the smoking danger.

This article is aimed only at recreational use of marijuana, and it is hoped that it will expand your enjoyment of the Cannabis plant in unusual and delightful ways.


(Dedicated to "Rocky, ” who for the last dozen years has admonished me to write down these methods.)

Marijuana Capsules

Up in smoke. That’s where 85% of your expensive purchased pot or your painstakingly-grown weed is going when you smoke it. Only about 15% of inhaled burning marijuana is absorbed. The rest is simply blown away.

By ingesting marijuana through the digestive system, rather than through the lungs, we can realize nearly 100% of its effects. We also spare the lungs the irritation of inhaling a burning substance. This is definitely not an article on how to make those ineffective, foul-tasting marijuana brownies of the 1960s.

The first method presented will demonstrate how to make highly-potent marijuana capsules. They can be made easily without any special techniques, and with standard kitchen equipment. Homegrown leaf or summer pinchings that would require many smoked joints to get even a slight buzz produce capsules of outrageous stoniness. Unsmokeable shake and dust can also be used. If you want to try prime buds to make capsules, be prepared for an extremely intense trip.

It takes about an hour to get stoned after swallowing a marijuana capsule, and the high lasts at least 2-3 hours. I suggest saving some of your best buds for smoking when you want to get a quick, short high.

The Theory

The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the active part of marijuana, the stuff that gets you stoned, is contained within the tiny plant cells. These cells arc surrounded by a tough cellulose skin. When smoked, the cellulose skin is burned, and the wonderful, stony vapors of the THC are released to be absorbed through your lungs and carried by your bloodstream directly to your brain — ecstasy! If you ate a primo bud, however, you would not get stoned. The cellulose skin is indigestible, and the pot cells will pass out of your body unchanged along with the rest of your shit.

So, how can we break through this tough, cellulose skin of the pot-plant cells, without burning them, to make the THC contained therein available to our digestive system? This will be explained as the method for making the capsules is presented.

The Method

The first piece of equipment needed is a blender. It must have exceptionally sharp blades. I keep mine sharp by honing the blades with a small round file used for chainsaw sharpening. (Editor's note: a small coffee mill or grinder will also suffice.)

Put your very dry marijuana leaf into the blender and grind the stuff up. Strain the ground-up pot through a very fine screen. A triple-zero (000) brass screen purchased from your local hardware store is best. Blend and re-blend the stuff, and filter it through the screen repeatedly. The object is to end up with ground-up weed that is near the consistency of flour. Any fibrous, leftover material can be thrown out. It is important that the marijuana be very dry and ground to the finest possible consistency. This exposes the greatest number of cells containing the stony THC to the extraction process.

The plant cells containing the THC are almost impossible to rupture in order to release the THC. Until recently, the only commonly-employed method was to bum them and inhale the smoke. That is, until the appearance of the microwave oven. Your second piece of apparatus is a microwave oven.

THC is soluble in both alcohol and oil. The alcohol is not acceptable for capsule making, so oil is the choice. As an Italian, I always use olive oil in the process, but any good liquid vegetable oil will suffice.

Place a portion, or all if you have just a small amount, of your ground-up marijuana powder into a microwave-safe, clear-glass container. Pour in some oil. The amount cannot be specified, as it depends upon the amount of your marijuana powder, A 20% oil-to-powder ratio will be about right. Microwave this mixture for a few seconds, then remove from the oven and stir. Repeat this process several times, microwaving and stirring. Add oil if necessary. The mixture must be a very oily, black, almost-tarry consistency. Continue to microwave and stir until the mixture becomes quite hot and just begins to smoke very slightly. Do not scorch the mixture. Allow the mixture to cool for a short time.

What has happened is that the marijuana plant cells have ruptured in the microwave oven, and the released THC is trapped in the oil surrounding them. The oil containing this released THC is completely digestible.

After the mixture has cooled for a short time, stuff it into empty 00 capsules. I use a plastic swizzic-stick to make sure the capsules arc packed tightly. Put the capsules into a bottle and freeze them immediately. This is important: The capsules must be stored in a freezer. The released THC dissolved in the oil will spoil or become rancid if not frozen. The capsules keep indefinitely when frozen. In fact, the freezing can make them even stronger. The freezing (ends to rupture (he few remaining THC-containing cells that the microwave may have missed.

Using The Capsules

When ingesting the capsules, they should be removed from the freezer and swallowed frozen. One capsule, or the maximum of two, are all that are needed for a long-lasting, very intense high. Remember, it takes thirty minutes to an hour and a half to get stoned, depending on how speedy your digestive system is. Also, the effects come on slowly and subtly. You may think that nothing is happening due to the slowness, but after a while you will realize that you are more stoned than you have ever been before on marijuana. Remember, you've got all the good stuff inside you. You're not blowing away 85% of it by smoking. The high is also long- lasting; not just a brief blast, then nothing, like much of the current so-called high-eaergy weed. You've got at least two hours of joyous stoniness

Here is a hint on how to maximize the effects of taking a marijuana capsule: Take it about fifteen minutes to one-half hour after a meal. Your digestive system will be in high gear from the food, and tie THC from the capsule will get into your bloodstream quickh, furiously, and delightfully! Enjoyl

One of the greatest advantages of smokeless marijuana in capsule form is the drastically-reduccd chance of getting busted. Take the capsule at home just before you go out for dinner and bar-hopping, and you’ll spend most of the evening stoned out of your mind without having any weed in your possession, any paraphernalia, or any smell in your car or on your breath. One friend calls it his “fuck the fuzz" high. Just keep your munchies out of sight. Smokeless marijuana has al least twice the munchie-inducing properties of smoked marijuana.

An Alternative Method

If freezer storage is not possible, the capsules can be made with a hard Crisco-like type of oil. The capsules must still be kept in a very cool place, preferably in the refrigerator. Storage time will be reduced in proportion to the warmth of the storage place. This method is OK if you arc making just a few capsules to be used within a short period of time.

Marijuana Wine

Yes, you read it right. Imagine a delicious, light, white wine that not only gets you drunk, but also gets you stoned. Remarkable!

This process is very easy, but it demands much more patience than capsule making. Primo marijuana wine takes at least a year for perfection. Most of the time is spent just waiting. The actual work to be done is very slight.

The recipe will be for one gallon (or four liters, for you metric-oriented ioadies). A five-gallon carboy is an excellent wine-making container for those who have enough of the raw materials.

This is an excellent method for large-quantity home growers, as it utilizes stems to make the wine. Yep, the ultimate in total use— wine from marijuana stems. You can use leaf or even buds to make the wine, but I prefer to make capsules from the leaf and smoke the buds. It’s your call, however.

The Theory

The theory is extremely simple. Remember where I informed you that THC (the stony stuff, in case your shortterm memory loss has already kicked in) is soluble in alcohol and oil? Voila! As your wine ferments, it produces alcohol, which then dissolves the THC from your marijuana material in the fermenting container. Ain't nature wonderful!

The Method

Step #1

Stuff your one-gallon jug with marijuana stems cut into short pieces about one to two inches long. Stuff it full by ramming the material down with a stick. The more you gel into the jug, the better the wine will be. Throw in some leaf or even bud if you are so inclined. Old, dried-out shake is also perfectly OK. Try not to use any seeds in (he wine, as they arc very oily, contain no THC, and can cause a bad flavor in the wine.

Step #2

Heat 2!6 quarts (liters) of water to boiling. Do not use an aluminum pan. Completely dissolve two pounds of white sugar in the boiling water. This sounds like a huge quantity of sugar, but there arc no natural sugars in marijuana as there are in fruit, and the sugar turns to alcohol. In fact, two pounds of sugar make a very dry wine. Alternatives for sweeter wine or different flavors will be discussed later.

Step #3

Pour the hot water with the sugar completely dissolved into your jug of stems. Cap the jug, shake well, loosen cap, and set the jug aside to cool to room temperature.

Step #4

In a small amount of lukewarm water (not hot!), dissolve one entire cake of fresh yeast, or alternatively, one package of active dry yeast, or one tablespoon of bulk dry yeast. It may take considerable stirring, but the yeast must be completely dissolved in the lukewarm water. Add more water if necessary.

Caution: Before proceeding with the next step, make sure your jug has cooled completely. If the water is too hot in this step or in the next, the yeast, which is a living plant, will be killed, and you will not get wine, just a jug of rotten stems!

Step #5

Pour the yeast solution into the jug, cap, shake well, and immediately remove the cap. Fill the jug to within 2-3 inches from the top with cool water. Be sure to leave several inches of space at the top of the jug or it will overflow when the fermentation begins. Cap the jug, shake well again, remove the cap, then replace it on the jug loosely! This is extremely important. If the cap is not put on loosely, the jug will explode when fermentation begins.

Step #6

Place the jug on several thicknesses of newspapers and put it in a dark place. The back of a closet is an ideal place. The contents of the jug will begin fermenting vigorously within a few hours. Frequently, some of the liquid will bubble over and out of the jug, especially if you filled it too full. Just wipe it up and change the newspapers. Do not add more water. This super-active fermentation lasts for several days. During this period it is helpful to open the jug and push the marijuana down with a clean wooden stick. Be sure to replace the cap loosely!

Step #7

Allow fermentation to continue for two weeks. During this time, bubbles will be rising continuously through the stems. Add small amounts of cool water occasionally during this two- week period to gradually fill the jug. At the same time, push the marijuana down as indicated previously. Always replace the cap loosely.

Step #8

The total fermentation time varies, but the average time for completion is approximately four weeks. The active fermentation of the first few weeks will gradually become slower and slower until it stops. This should be observed in order to determine when the fermentation has ceased.

A method of determining completion of fermentation is to tip the jug slightly back and forth. If no bubbles rise up through the stems, the fermentation is complete. Do not shake the jug at this time.

Bottling and Aging

When the fermentation is complete, carefully move the jug so as to not disturb the sediment on the bottom. A sink counter js a good place to work. Insert a length of W" flexible plastic tubing down the inside of the jug to about one inch from the bottom. Siphon (start by sucking on the tube) the contents into another clean glass jug. At this lime it is best to allow the wine to pass through several layers of clean pantyhose before allowing it to enter the second jug. This will remove particles which may come through while siphoning. (One marijuana winemaker of my acquaintance insists that his best wine results when he filters it through the crotch portion of unwashed pantyhose. Hmmm.) The wine will be quite cloudy and murky-looking at this time. You may taste it at this time if you like. It will not be smooth, but the delicious marijuana flavor will already be there. It’s hard to wail, but the next easy steps make the wine much better!

Discard the fermenting jug with its contents. It’s best to cap it. put it in a paper bag, and throw the whole thing out. (Editor's note: Be sure to wipe off your fingerprints!)

Take your jug of wine, cap it loosely, and put it in a dark place. That closet is just fine. Gradually, your wine will become clear, and a layer of sediment will form on the bottom. Allow it to settle and clarify in this fashion for two weeks to a month. Do not disturb the jug at this time. After about a month, very carefully carry the jug back to the sink counter. Be careful not to stir up the sediment on the bottom.

Rinse several 750ml wine bottles in boiling water. Carefully siphon the wine from the jug into these bottles. Try not to disturb the sediment on the jug's bottom. Again, allow the wine to pass through several layers of clean pantyhose before it enters the 750ml bottles. Seal the cap or cork with electrical tape or melted wax. An alternative to the pantyhosc-filtcring is to use coffee fillers. This will give a clearer wine with less sediment, but it is a very slow process. When the bottles are filled, cork or cap them tightly.

The wine is now ready to drink, and a bottle can be chilled if you are anxious. However, it is best now to put the sealed bottles back in that dark place. The longer you let them age tn this manner, the clearer, smoother, and more mellow the wine will become. I have kept and subsequently opened bottles that were as much as four years old. The wine was fantastic! It could easily win medals, were not the ingredients contained therein inexplicably illegal.

(Note: This homemade marijuana wine will never be quite as crystal-clear as a commercial wine. This is a natural wine with no chemicals added. Commercial wines use chemical clarifiers. The slight cloudiness your wine may have in no way affects its flavor or potency. Use caution when decanting from your 750ml bottles, so as to not stir up the very slight sediment on the bottom. All natural wines will have this slight sediment.)

Alternative Procedures

For a sweeter wine, use one-half to one cup more sugar. Honey can be substituted for alt or part of the sugar, and makes a unique, deliciously-flavored wine, Use about 25% more honey, as its sugar content is lower than straight white sugar. Several people have told me that they use the juice of a few lemons or oranges in the fermenting jug. Others have used various herbs as flavoring ingredients. I have never found these to be satisfactory.

Effects on The Body

“Will it get you stoned?” is the most commonly-asked question. The answer is a qualified yes. Marijuana wine is alcoholic; in fact, more so than commercial wines. By following the above directions, your wine will be at least 13% alcohol. So, of course, as you drink the wine you will feel the effects of the alcohol. Imbibe too much, and you will get quite drunk.

The effects of the THC are more subtle and difficult to predict exactly. The amount of THC in the wine will vary considerably, depending on how much marijuana you used in the making of the wine and the quality of the weed used. Also, the alcohol enters your bloodstream more quickly than the THC, so you will begin to feel drunk before you feel stoned. Regardless of how much or how good the marijuana used for making your wine was, you will feel the effects of the THC if you drink enough. The only difference will be how much wine you will need to drink to gel high, and how intense the high will be. On the average, two to four six-ounce glasses of the wine will get you pleasantly stoned as well as moderately inebriated.

Ingesting the THC in this fashion does not affect the body in quite the same way as smoking it does. It is similar to the capsules, in that you will not notice the effect of the THC for at least thirty minutes. It takes time for the THC to be absorbed through the digestive system. The effect is also less intense than capsules. The high comes on slowly and gradually, and almost without realizing it, you will feel very mellow and will be quite stoned.

Smoking marijuana while drinking the wine can be too much for some people, but others will find it delightful! The initial speedy effects of smoking arc gradually made more and more intense by the effects of the THC in the wine, until your body feels completely and beautifully stoned. Use caution, however, when smoking and drinking at the same time. Remember, the effect of the THC in the wine takes about half an hour to come on, and if you arc completely stoned-out from smoking when this happens, the combination could be too much.

Drinking and Enjoying

The wine should be ice-cold before drinking. A small brandy-type glass is best for drinking the wine, as the narrow top captures the marvelous aroma. It is best to drink the wine without food, as its flavor is so unique. For a real flavor rush, smoke a small amount of good marijuana; then, when your taste buds are completely psychcd-up with the munchies, pour a frosty glass of marijuana wine and sit back and sip it slowly. Are you ever in for a treat!

A hint for the wise: Your friends will love the wine, and, of course, will want a sample to take home. Parting with an entire 750ml bottle, even to the best of friends, can be quite traumatic. One solution is to bottle some of the marijuana wine in beer bottles and seal with a wine cork. The smaller amount may be easier to part with.


Marijuana Champagne

This is a tough one. I have had only two bottles out of about ten attempts come out successfully. But, oh, is it worth it! A golden, clear, riotously-bubbling glass of frosty, cold marijuana champagne is a treat to be savored and remembered for a lifetime. The flavor is indescribable, and the high is fast and nice. I suspect that it is the bubbles which rocket the good stuff to your brain more quickly.

Here we go for you adventuresome folks:

Follow all the directions for making marijuana wine. Now, this is the tricky part and can only work if you have made marijuana wine at least once and preferably several times: Between three and five days before the marijuana wine in the fermenting jug has finished its fermenting, siphon from near the top of the jug 750ml into a scrupulously-clean heavy champagne bottle. Do not use one of those el cheapo bottles. Use only a very thick one with the large indentation in the bottom. Immediately cap the bottle with a plastic champagne cork. Do everything possible to secure that cork in the bottle's neck. I use a champagne wire bail, and tape the sucker with about thirty layers of duct tape. That cork must be secure. The last few days of fermentation are now occurring in a scaled bottle, and the pressure developed in the bottle is awesome. The bottle can explode with great and dangerous force. To thwart this danger, wrap the bottle with many layers of newspapers, and tape them securely. Store the bottle upright in a safe place. I put mine in the garage under a layer of blankets and old sleeping bags. One friend even went so far as to bury his in the ground. It worked, and he shared a most delightful champagne with me. Leave the bottle sequestered in its secure place for at least six months.

I have had one explosion occur, and the glass shards penetrated 50-60 layers of newspaper and embedded into the blankets. The sound of the explosion woke me from a sleep at 2 a.m. Use every safety precaution; that exploding bottle is no joke. On the other hand, if you bottle the prospective champagne a bit too late in the fermentation process, you will end up with a sickly, flat champagne with no pizazz. This is what usually happens with my attempts.

Onward with the method. If you have come this far, take your bottle with the newspapers still on it and cool it in a refrigerator for two days. After two days, take the still newspaper-encapsulated bottle outside. Remove the newspapers, then remove the duct tape from the cork. Make sure the bottle is pointing away from you, upward, and away from anyone nearby. I even go so far as to wear safety glasses, leather gloves and a heavy coat. Slowly remove the bail and push gently on the cork. If the process worked, the champagne cork will blast most satisfactorily about twenty feet into the air. If it didn’t work, all you will get is that sickly fizz. But all is not lost. Leave the semi-champagne in the refrigerator uncorked for a few days, and it will turn into a very acceptable still wine.

Marijuana Beer

This is the toughest and most unrewarding of the smokeless marijuana projects. In fact, I have never brewed it, although I have patient, persevering friends who have. The beer is usually delicious, depending on the skill of the maker. It has a pleasant hint of that delightful marijuana flavor. But it has such a low concentration of the stony THC compounds that it is virtually impossible to drink enough of the stuff to get stoned.

I will give you. who have the patience and knowledge to brew beer, very brief instructions.

Simply use any beer-making recipe that you have and substitute marijuana for the hops. Use at least two to five times the amount of marijuana as the amount of hops called for in the recipe.

One enterprising cohort of mine has plans to open a microbrewcry featuring marijuana beer as soon as they legalize the weed. Yeah, right. Good luck, friend.

Marijuana Lhueur and Brandy

If you have come this far in this work, you’ll discover that I have saved the easiest process for Iasi. The stoniness level of this stuff is just under that of the capsules, which makes it very potent indeed.

You will need a scrupulously-clcan one-liter or -quart glass bottle, preferably with a wide mouth. It must have a tight- fitting lid.

Fill the bottle with marijuana. It can be cut stems, leaf, shake, dust, or even buds. Just make sure there are few, and preferably no, seeds. Put as much of the marijuana as you possibly can in the bottle. A little bit will give you a tasty and mildly-stony drink, but a bottle packed full will give you a drink whereby one or two shots will put your brain into a delightful never-never land.

Next, fill the bottle with vodka. Regular vodka is OK, but if you can find the 100-proof stuff, use it!

Cap the bottle tightly and shake it well. Let the bottle sit for 2-3 weeks, and shake it well several times every day.

Filter the contents through a coffee filter into a clean glass bottle. It is now ready to drink! To make a brandy, add some sweetener to the bottle of stuff you just filtered. It can be honey or sugar. If you want it to be a liqueur, add whatever flavorings you wish. 1 have had it with peppermint, cinnamon, and several varieties of food colorings. My preference is the straight sluff, straight-up just as it comes from the marijuana bottle.

You can drink it straight, or use it for a mixed drink. If you make a mixed drink, use something neutral like seltzer, or you will mask that great marijuana flavor. Yes, just like the rest of the recipes in this article, it takes at least thirty minutes for you to get stoned from marijuana brandy. Sip two shots of (his magnificent elixir, sit back, relax, and you will soon be delightfully blottoed and blitzed.

Lastly, genuine good luck Io all who attempt these great smokeless-marijuana processes. Your brain and your lungs will thank you! •

Survival Shelters Construction Manual

by M & M Engineering

It's not just crazy talk anymore, anarchism Is here! The insane foreign policies of this government have brought terrorists to America with their bombs! The Los Angeles riots were only a small sample of what is to come if the comforts we now enjoy are removed. Your only choice must be to plan ahead for the inevitable. In this book, you will see 11 different, totally complete plans, material lists, and instructions ranging from easy to construct basement blast shelters, to totally comfortable underground shelters that look like pleasant patios or gardens. M & M Engineering has finally released its trouble free survival shelter plans that you can be comfortable living in and comfortable looking at from the outside.

The purpose of this construction manual is to provide you with professionally designed survival shelters that can be built under ‘normal' pretenses so as to arouse as little concern as possible of your local zoning board, state building administration, federal agencies too numerous to list, and all your neighbors.

Dim Mak S 12 Most Deadly Katas

Points of No Return

by Erle Montalgue

Originally, the 12 secret deadly katas of dlm-mak, or death-point striking. were only given to the most advanced students or family members who inherited the ancient martial system in China. One technique per year was given over a 12-year period. At the end of that period, the practitioner was so adept at using his hands that no one could match him.

Today, most of us don’t have the time or perseverance required to achieve this kind of mastery, and author Erle Montaigue acknowledges this. ‘Because we are twentieth-century human beings," he says, “we want things unnaturally quicker, and most of us do not wish to spend the time loaming a new martial art, especially one as intricate as taijiquan (dim mak)." In this book. then, he teaches the 12 most deadly katas of dlm-mak, offering his students a shortcut to learning the natural circular body movement of dim-mak, or taiji, which is based on the powerful points along the acupuncture meridians and can be as healing as it is lethal. In addition, he provides quick, concise training in specific patterns of movement or forms based on these points that can be used as a whole separate martial art. Part One teaches the solo form — not really a continuous kata but 12 separate katas. Part Two puts it all together with the student learning Io respond to a training partner's attacks with each ol 12 free-sparring techniques, called san-saux or Kumite, that directly correspond to the 12 katas taught in Part One.

The Imaginary Indian

The Image of the Indian In Canadian Culture

by Daniel Francis

Images of the Indian have
always been fundamental to
Canadian culture. From the
paintings and photographs of
the nineteenth century Io the
Mounted Police sagas and the
spectacle of Buffalo Bill's Wild
West Show; from the performances of Pauline Johnson,
Grey Owl, and Buffalo Long
Lance to the media images of
Oka and llijah Harper — The
Imaginary Indian
is ever with
us, oscillating throughout history from friend to foe, from
Noble Savage to blood-lhirsty
warrior, from debased alcoholic to wise elder, from monosyllabic ’squaw” to eloquent
princess, from enemy of
progress to protector of the environment.

The Imaginary Indian has boon, and continues to bo — as Daniel Francis reveals In this book— just about anything the non-Native culturo
has wanted it to be; and the contradictory stories non-nativos toll about
Imaginary Indians are really stories about themselves and the uncertainties that make up their culture heritage.

The Imaginary Indian Is rooted In the colonial past and continues to
be part of the modem tradition stemming from the past. This is not a
book about Native people; it is the story of the images projected upon
Native people — and the desperate uses to which they are pul.

The Gas

A Novel of Sex and Violence

by Charles Platt

Pick any author, from Terry Southern to Samuel Beckett, and you're likely to find an erotic novel lurking somewhere in his past. From the 1950s through to the 1970s, dozens of novelists were tempted to write erotica in a spirit of playful rebellion. Most of their work was commissioned by Maurice Girodias of Olympia Press, the man who gave the world Vladimir Nabokov, William Burroughs, and a huge number of less distinguished "fuckbooks."

Most of these novels were published under pseudonyms, and most of them disappeared without a trace. The Gas by Charles Platt Is a rarity: it appeared under the author's real name and has refused to die.

Described by Platt as "slapstick sadomasochism," The Gas is a bizarre mixture of deadpan humor and blood-soaked depravity. Published originally by Girodias. it went through several printings in the United States before Olympia Press ceased operations. A new edition of The Gas appeared In England in 1980, was seized by the Director of Public Prosecutions and was used as evidence in a trial which put the publisher behind bars for three months. Now Loompanics presents an entirely new, revised edition of this classic which has remained unavailable in the United States for twenty years.

In unflinching detail, the book describes the comic and horrific consequences when a cloud of toxic gas is accidentally released from a biological warfare laboratory and wafts across southern England. The gas has two effects: it relaxes Inhibitions and accelerates hormone production In men and women. Within a matter of hours, "British reserve" becomes a thing of the past. Businessmen, housewives, farmers, priests, shopkeepers, and teenagers are soon ripping off each others' clothes and partying in the street.

Platt notes that he wrote the book in an attempt to exorcise his own British Inhibitions before he finally gave up on his homeland and emigrated to the United States. The Gas bears no resemblance to the author's current work for respected publications such as Wired magazine. Still, Its iconoclastic energy and its Insistence on violating every social norm have earned it a unique, enduring status. Not For Sate To Minora.

A Novel

by Jacquln Sanders

Loompanics Unlimited proudly announces a first for us — the first novel to be published by our company: a reprinting of a brilliant and compelling tale of the individual against the forces of conformity. First published in 1954 to widespread praise (see excerpts from reviews, below), Freakshow has remained undeservedly unknown — until now.

F/wArs/KJH'is the powerful story of Bat Fidler, a lonely drifter whose search for excitement leads him to accept a job with a carnival sideshow. The moment that he joined the carnival he was attracted to two sideshow “freaks': the beautiful but deformed Fish Girl and Emmy, a pretty young stripper.

A misfit even among freaks, Bat falls In love with the Fish Girl, wile of the carnival's jealous manager. Against his will, Bat finds himself drawn... first into the Fish Girt's trailer... then Into her arms... and finally Into an act of violence which brings his amazing camy career to a startling endl

When 'normal' people force him back into the "normal“ world, Bat discovers a freakshow of another kind: in the hypocrisy and lust that masquerade as love!

Excerpts from reviews:

'Harsh with the glaring quality of a cheap carnival this novel is the story of a man who becomes involved with the people styled freaks' in sideshows. Bat Fidler is a lonely drifter who is his own worst enemy. He finds himself a place in carnival life as a wrestler and soon he is the center of a nightmare of love and violence, tom by the unnatural lure of the Fish Giri.'— Tulsa World

•Judging by the throngs at freak shows, this first novel should do well al Ihe literary box office. It manages to capture the gaudy carnival flavor and Is peopled by such physical misfits as Fish Boy, Tattoo Joe, Egghead and the Texas Giant... Sanders Is a writer of promise." — Philadelphia Inquirer

‘Wherever Bat goes in the universal freakshow, he finds that without love there are only freakishness and violence... In these bizarre settings, Bat's struggles against brute cruelly and hypocrisy, against his own dread of abnormality, make it a compelling story." — New York Herald Tribune

"Jacquin Sanders... writes knowledgeably and powerfully of carnival life and sensitively of carnival people. Mr. Sanders will make you sweat." — The New York Times

“A disturbing, shocking book."— Dallas Times-Herald

"Told with a strength which startles and horrifies." — Time and Tide

Ladies and gentlemen, Loompanics Unlimited is very proud to present an astonishing accomplishment: Jacquin Sanders' Freakshow.

Asshole No More

A Self-Help Guide for Recovering Assholes — and Their Victims

by Xavier Crement, M.D.

if you can't think of at least 12 people to give this book to, then don't buy it. (Someone else will probably give it to you.)

Until recently, it was almost impossible to find anyone in the healing profession who would take the disease of assholism seriously. Compulsively rude treatment of others was viewed only as a character flaw, not as an addiction over which the asshole had no real control. We believed that assholes were assholes because they didn't know any better.

All of this Is rapidly changing, thanks Io the ground-breaking work of Dr. Xavier Crement, as told in this brilliant overview, Asshole No More. Dr. Crement had already established his reputation in proctology when he came to the realization that he was an asshole. He sought help to overcome his affliction, but could not find any. Now, as a recovering asshole, he has switched to the practice of psychiatry and devoted his life to helping other assholes find help and a new life.

Chapters include: o Defining Assholism o The Essence of Assholism o The Run-of-the-Mill Asshole □ The Three-Piece Asshole o The Litigious Asshole o When Society Becomes an Asshole o Reading, Writing & Assholism o Assholism in the Media o The Tore Epidemic o Living With Assholes o Working With Assholes o The Bom Asshole o Adult Children of Asshole Parents o The Road to Recovery o And much, much more.

Practical Lsd Manufacture

by Uncle Fester

Uncle Fester has done it again! The underground mastermind of outlaw chemistry and psychedelic cookery has provided up-and-coming Owsley-wannabes with Practical LSD Manufacture, the most detailed, comprehensive and concise description ever of several of the methods employed in the preparation of lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD, from natural sources. Uncle Fester also offers a break-through in psychedelic literature: a simple process for extracting the hallucinogenic drug TMA-2 from the commonly-grown calamus plant.

Practica! L SD Manufacture contains :

a An overview of LSD Manufacture

▲ Natural sources of the lysergic amides, including harvesting procedures for ergot-infested rye and Spartina marsh-grass

a An interpretation of LSD-progenitor Albert Hofmann’s patented “one- pot shot" method of LSD synthesis, plus purification and storage techniques

a A never-before-published presentation of “Method X,“ wherein a propionic anhydride mixes with lysergic acid, allowing for a much-improved synthesis

a A section on solvent management, a crucial but often overlooked detail all chemists should be aware of

a How to manufacture the hallucinogen 2,4,5-trimethoxyamphetamine (TMA-2) from the calamus root

a Detailed growing, harvesting and availability information on the calamus plant

a Cautionary notes on keeping out of trouble

a And much, much more!

Uncle Fester says: “I can think of no other area of organic chemistry which, to we common working pot-boilers, is shrouded in as much mystery, or is as thoroughly obfuscated as the production of LSD. The scientific articles dealing with this topic are barely readable by the typical person with an undergraduate degree in chemistry. They assume a level of understanding of the arcane field of lysergic chemistry not generally possessed by even those skilled in the ’cooking arts.'

“The 'underground publications' covering this topic have done little to clean up this situation. They have merely regurgitated the original unintelligible works until they have become like mantras, repeatedly chanted and not understood.

“It is here that this book shall break new ground. Rather than presenting this field as a magic act, the sources of lysergic acid raw materials In nature shall be detailed, and their mystery removed. The processes required to isolate this raw material and move it on in pure form lo LSD shall be expounded upon. Common threads shall be drawn between the various procedures lo show what variations in technique are acceptable, and which produce the disappointing commercial product we are all loo often cursed with."

The South Was Right!

by James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy

Not for the weak-at-heart, The South Was R/ght!\s an authoritative and documented study of the mythology behind Civil War history and its lasting effects on contemporary society. The authors exhibit evidence that the South was an independent country invaded, captured, and still occupied by a vicious aggressor. The needless bloodshed of the War for Southern Independence now contrasts with many of the present-day secessions without bloodshed throughout the world.

Much of Civil War history is untrue. Like most history it Is written by the victor. The story told is that millions of Southern men went to war over an issue that only affected 6 percent of the population. Such absurdity is readily seen. The deception must not continue.

Read this book and learn the truth. There was no shining Northern force fighting a moral battle for the sake of ending slavery. There was no oppressive Southern force fighting to preserve it, either. After the South declared its independence, the Union ruthlessly invaded, leaving Southerners no choice but to defend themselves. Unfortunately, they lost that struggle and have suffered for nearly a century and a half because of it.

The South has become an economic colony of the North, used and exploited like colonies throughout the world. Politically, the North still controls the government and continues to impose its social agenda on the rest of the country at the expense of individual liberty. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court, the first federal department to infringe upon the rights of sovereign stales, continues to suppress any efforts to reclaim liberty for the Individual from the federal government.

Today, as a result of the war in which the South lost its right to be a free country, Northern politics still reign with an iron fist. The Southern people are second-class citizens in a despotic society where fraudulent political maneuvers, oppressive acts, and unfair legislation continue as acts of ethnic cleansing to obliterate all symbols of their history and heritage.

Sure to be one of the most controversial books of the decade, The South Was Right! is an attempt to set the record straight. The South Was Right! Is sure to raise eyebrows and questions and draw fire from a number of special-interest groups. But the authors maintain, through rigorous research, how the South had a legal precedent to secede and a right to defend its borders. Even today it has just as much reason to reclaim its liberty as the people of Poland, the Baltic states, Palestine, and the states and provinces of the former Soviet Union and Yugoslavia have done for themselves. Southerners should read this book with a sense of urgency and obligation to the past. Others should read it with open minds. Leave this book out on your coffee table and watch your guests turn pale.

Secrets of Methamphetamine Manufacture

Revised and Expanded Third Edition

by Uncle Fester

A brand-new, revised and expanded edition ol one of our best-selling 'cookbooks,* including a recipe for the hot new drug, methcathinone, or 'cat.' Here's what Uncle Fester has to say about the new Third Edition:

'The world of amphetamine manufacture is an Increasingly complicated and profitable place. An unending tide of rules and regulations continue to sweep the land, making materials useful lor the home manufacture of drugs over more difficult to obtain. The infiltration of the populace with over greater numbers of police Informants continues unabated. It is Into this environment that I bring forth the Third Edition of Secrets of Methamphetamine Manufacture.

'In such an environment, the aspiring manufacturer must be prepared to start cooking using over the counter materials which will never be denied the public duo to their value to monlod and powerful interests. I, for one, see little likelihood that products such as off-the-shelf diet pills and cold remedies will be successfully routed from the store shelves just to fight another futile round of the Drug War.

‘As my contribution to this Drug War. I launch for you the Third Edition of Secrets of Methamphetamine Manufacture. Great emphasis has boon placed upon the use of over-the-counter (OTC) medicines and hardware store chemicals as starting materials. Simple and tested procedures are presented which effectively convert OTC garbago into high- octane, very pure human rocket fuel.

'My very special treat lor you in this edition Is Iho most easily home manufactured drug of all time, the very onjoyablo methamphetamine analog, Methcathinone (CAT) — Kllchon Improvised Crank. You will be very pleased, I'm sure.' — Uncle Fester

Speed, crank, wire, cat, crystal meth, ice, ecstasy... This is the most amazing, step-by-step, how-to-do-lt book on the manufacture of methamphetamine ever printed. The result ol over a decade of research and experimentation, this book is not meant to encourage anyone to break the law; rather, it points out the ultimate futility of government prohibition of ‘controlled substances* by showing just how easily these substances can be manufactured.

Every step of methamphetamine manufacture is covered, from procuring the necessary chemicals and lab equipment to keeping out of trouble with Ihe law. The author has gone to pains Io determine which chemical purchases are being monitored by the bureaucrats. The unavailability of certain chemicals means manufacturing processes have been revised from previous editions to take advantage of those chemicals still available.

Chapters include:

• Chemicals and Equipment • The Leuckardt-Wallach Reaction: An Overview • Preparation of Phenylacotone • Preparation of N- Melhylformamide • Making Methamphetamine • Industrial-Scale Production • Other Methods of Making Phonylacetone • A New Breakthrough: Phenylacetone from Allylbonzono • The Way of the Bomb • Reductive Alkylation Without the Bomb • Methylamine • The Ritter Reaction: Amphetamines Directly from Allylbonzene • Methamphetamine from Ephedrine • Mothcalhlnone: Kitchen Improvised Crank • MDA, XTC, and other Psychedelic Amphetamines • And much, much more.

’Controlled substances* laws are being used to violate Ihe civil rights of American citizens. This book demonstrates the absurdity of all such laws by showing just how easily these substances can be manufactured. Sold for informational purposes only.

'Planning to embezzle a couple mH from your company's pension plan? Hold up a bank? Kill your wife’s lover? Chances are you'll end up doing time, and if Jim Hogshire's You Are Going To Prison is any indication, it won't be a country dub. (in fact, there are only two "country dub"prisons, says Hogshire — Allenwood, Pennsylvania, the other in Elgin, Florida.) Based on inside information from prisoners who have endured long sentences in such ominous institutions as the federal maximum-security prison in Marion, Indiana, the book provides prospective inmates with a step-by-step guide to incarceration, beginning with arrest and ending — at least in some unfortunate cases — with the administration of the death penalty. '— Esquire, January 1995

‘From your first contad with a policeman to what you will feet when you die In the gas chamber, Hogshire covers almost everything you need to know. "— Factsheet Five, *54

Important reading for anybody new on the inside and anybody on the outside still naive Io the grave consequences of getting caught for breaking the law.'—Talking Raven
