Dr. Ecstasy

By DRAKE BENNETT

January 30, 2005

Alexander Shulgin, Sasha to his friends, lives with his wife, Ann, 30 minutes inland from the San Francisco Bay on a hillside dotted with valley oak, Monterey pine and hallucinogenic cactus. At 79, he stoops a little, but he is still well over six feet tall, with a mane of white hair, a matching beard and a wardrobe that runs toward sandals, slacks and short-sleeved shirts with vaguely ethnic patterns. He lives modestly, drawing income from a small stock portfolio supplemented by his Social Security and the rent that two phone companies pay him to put cell towers on his land. In many respects he might pass for a typical Contra Costa County retiree.

...For 40 years, working in plain sight of the law and publishing his results, Shulgin has been a one-man psychopharmacological research sector. (Timothy Leary called him one of the century's most important scientists.) By Shulgin's own count, he has created nearly 200 psychedelic compounds, among them stimulants, depressants, aphrodisiacs, ''empathogens,'' convulsants, drugs that alter hearing, drugs that slow one's sense of time, drugs that speed it up, drugs that trigger violent outbursts, drugs that deaden emotion -- in short, a veritable lexicon of tactile and emotional experience. And in 1976, Shulgin fished an obscure chemical called MDMA out of the depths of the chemical literature and introduced it to the wider world, where it came to be known as Ecstasy.

I read about him a while ago. One of the century's most important scientists indeed. It's up to the rest to use his creations safely

*sigh* in the 80s a friend in california sent me a few hundred doses of what i thought was pure MDMA (and then known as ecstasy). fast forward almost 20 years; last summer someone in london turned us on to some after a gig--IMO it was a huge difference (pet man hated it; i was all 'meh').

or you'll end up like the girl (a true story) in 'U Don't Dans 2 Tekno Anymore' ('in which a DJ watches a girl overdose in front of his booth')

DW: 'she took those funny little heart-shaped pills and just died, right there, in front of me. now she don't dance to techno anymore.'

forgot to say that Alexander Shulgin was at the high times offices way back when, a very cool dude.

I used to use all that back when I was a techno freak but now only natural stuff for me.

Several bad trips and experiences led me here :smokin:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
