Bicycle Day 2013!

Friday, 19 April, is Bicycle Day!

Bicycle Day is the anniversary of the first deliberate ingestion of LSD, in 1943, by its inventor Albert Hofmann, as he attempted to determine the cause of a strange mind altered state that he had experienced a three days earlier. 

It is an amazing story of synchronicity and chance. The discovery of LSD's psychoactive properties is one of those accidents that reverberate throughout history and forever change our world. I'd encourage you to read the full account:

This year is an especially exciting Bicycle Day, as it marks the 70th anniversary of Hofmann's wonderful ride and the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Psychedelic Era.

While we don't have anything magical, or wonderful planned, I will be once again tripping on the steps of the Victorian Parliament House as I celebrate the Religious and Spiritual freedoms enshrined in Victoria's Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act (2006). Of course, if you ask any politician, they will tell you that the Charter does not enshrine these particular rights, but if you ask them why, they will inevitably have to resort to the lies and distortion that have become the unthinking boilerplate of their irrational "War on Drugs". 

This boilerplate doesn't change the fact that LSD, like all of the other Transcendent Compounds is non-addictive, non-toxic and psychologically safe. The Government simply have no "demonstrably justifiable" reason to claim that the basic religious freedoms available to all other Victorians don't apply to those who use these substances for religious and spiritual reasons.
