Helped me learn more about the psychoactive substances I use (ie caffeine) and those I may use in the future. Also helped me me understand the concept of “set and setting” which I plan on taking into consideration in the future

A look in to different plants that alter our mental state: the poppy/opium, coffee beans & tealeaves/caffeine and cacti/peyote & mescaline. 🌺☕️🌵

And he‘s kinda just Hunter S Thomson‘ing around in a Ned Flanders way. The book takes look at the use throughout cultures &ages, impact of the war on drugs and his own experiences.

I haven‘t read one of his since Omnivore‘s Dilemma (2006) which I didn‘t love. But this was good, fun and informative.

Just learned that it‘s legal to grow a mescaline cactus 🌵 probably wouldn‘t work in Massachusetts though, right?

…this story where the author is growing poppies is so wild. Call everyone, including the cops & someone arrested for possessing dried poppies, that he is growing poppies.

An interesting look at the plants that produce caffeine, opium and mescaline.

so many houseplants! 🙈
My #bookspin for March was educational and entertaining. I listened to the audiobook which Pollan narrated.
Three substances from plants are featured in the book: caffeine (coffee and tea), opium (from poppies), and mescaline (from peyote plants)
He spends a majority of the section on opium discussing the legality of growing poppies and his own legal fears when publishing an article years ago on the subject.

AmyG I love your plants! 9mo
ElizaMarie oo Those plants are so impressive! 9mo
Chelsea.Poole @AmyG @ElizaMarie thank you both! One last picture in their current space, as they just got moved to another room in the house 😊🪴 9mo
GondorGirl Such a great collection of plant babies! I would love a room like that, but my cats eat anything they can reach. Thank goodness for hanging planters! 9mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I also seem to collect a lot of plants. The problem is that in the summer they go out on the front porch, which tricks my brain into thinking there is a lot more room in our house for plants than there actually is, which I consistently discover every fall when everything needs to come back inside! 😂 9mo
