i want to focus on Todd's chapter on Kratom. I believe being a 9 year more than daily user makes me pretty close to an expert on kratom. don't take those anecdotal stories in this book to heart. they are all wrong. every one of those people OVER dosed on kratom. if you have visual disturbances, cross-eyed effects, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, apathy which i heard in all the stories those are each one and all together signs of not knowing your body in relation to your kratom dose and you took TOO MUCH. kratom should relieve your pain, calm you, it will NOT feel like you took vicodin or heroin or percocet so don't look for that. it will give your mood a little boost. it will make you feel like you can work harder and with a better attitude. so when your day is dragging, your back is hurting, take the RIGHT dose and 30 min later, no pain, and suddenly you can get through the rest of your day as if it was the now the start of the day. it RE energizes. it RE invigorates. unfortunatly if you take it like i do you will become physcially addicted. and that is so bad. SOOOO bad. i can't get off it. i tried once for 6 weeks and the pain and torture i went through never let up. so hopefully it stays legal. i have TERRIBLE leg pain no one can figure out. and it works. i would NEVER take a "real" narcotic. plus! if you take kratom and then try to take a "real" narcotic it BLOCKS the narcotic from working. questions email 1spunkitty@gmail.com

Format: Paperback
It's a nice overview of legal highs. Although you can find this information fairly easily on the internet. It does provide an excellent list to start with if you're new to the subject, although thanks to Amazon's "Look Inside" feature you can see the list without actually buying the book. I would also recommend it because these aren't your wussy "herbal weed" legal highs but drugs that would be banned if the politics were different.

Also, I'm not sure what N. Comparato (another reviewer) was talking about, but everything listed in this book is legal. Sure there's items like San Pedro cactus and Salvia that are in a bit of a legal grey area, but that comes with the territory.

This book provides a great overview of these 14 substances, comprehensive and practical. Much of the information may be accessible elsewhere but the book includes accounts of the author's personal experience and opinion about these substances. As a practicing psychologist for more than 15 years, with a clientele ranging from white collar drug abusers to those incarcerated for drug related offenses, Dr. Todd Thies has had many unique and interesting encounters that inform his ability to author this book. The book aims to add a little gray to the current black and white discourse about drugs in America, and maybe expose a similarity between the criminal drug user and the white collar abuser.

Very good resource book, even as a non-smoker, though supporter I enjoy information of all kinds, and have been using liquid kratom for a few months since finding it at a shop. It is fantastic for my acute chronic back and hip pain, in place of my doctors refusal to prescribe anything, like that there is a section on kratom. Thank you.

Some very interesting and educational reading. Clears up some 'wives tales' also. You need to be informed whether you have kids or not, this is a good source of information.

Well organized and detail-oriented book, a real education! Each chapter covers a different drug's effects, uses, side effects and even the history and political aspects of each. Book quotes research if available, with references. Very thorough and useful.

I LOVED this book! This was a very fun read! It brought me back to my college days when I was hanging out in Amsterdam and didn't have to worry about the legal aspects of mind "enhancement". I have done a lot of research on these mind altering substances online, but it's very cool to have a "cookbook" type reference book that you can have "handy" for using. This is a very thorough book. I read another review, and that guy is wrong, I researched it and all these drugs are LEGAL! That guy must have been high!

My favorite section is the magic Toad, Bufo Alvarius! Awesome! This was one of the coolest books I've read in a really long time! Thank you Dr. Thies! I highly recommend it if you are into mind expansion, and personal freedom!

The book is very thorough; it contains sources, methods, first person accounts, history/background, and more. It is a bit out of date, however, and you night want to double check legality and sourcing in your particular state.
