Why animals eat psychoactive plants - Ronald K. Siegel

The United Nations says the drug wars rationale is to build a drug-free world - we can do it! U.S. government officials agree, stressing that "there is no such thing as recreational drug use." So this isn't a war to stop addiction, like that in my family, or teenage drug use. It is a war to stop drug use among all humans, everywhere. All these prohibited chemicals need to be rounded up and removed from the earth. That is what we are fighting for. I began to see this goal differently after I learned the story of the drunk elephants, the stoned water buffalo, and the grieving mongoose. They were all taught to me by a remarkable scientist in Los Angeles named Professor Ronald K. Siegel.
