Hi everyone...

Although I dont see a lot of it, I see enough people advertising the fact that they do toad work that it has caused me grave concern on at least two recent occasions. One of these people created an event on FB that would take place within the Continental US and invited 500 people. Plain and clear "5MEO" and "Bufo" language was visible, as was pricing.

I dont know how people feel about this, but I dont advertise, and I think its a really bad idea when people do. If you dont already know, in the U.S., 5MEO is classified a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance that carries a Class 1 Federal Felony charge. It is also equally illegal to advertise a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance. The only USAGE/POSSESSION exception is for religious use, which I and many of you adhere to as a REGISTERED member of a federally-recognized medicine church, but it is still illegal for those churches to advertise.

Some of you dont have this problem in your home countries, but for those of us who do, I would like to hear your thoughts about it and how you deal with potentially threatening scenarios and people. Does this group ever intercede?

Although I honor and appreciate the sentiment, it does not help here to respond with something like, "I'm not concerned, I know Spirit protects me."  Rather, I feel it's important to always have frank and open discussion about legal potentialities, penalties and protections.

Please share.


I recommend everyone get Mark Lewis', "The Biology of Desire: Why Addiction Is Not A Disease"

Dear friends,

Im curious if anyone has devised guidelines and protocols specifically for hairy PTSD catharsis like War Trauma. Ive been working in this area the last couple of years and I feel a few caveats should be worked in to the pre-screening guidelines and treatment protocols:

1) Veterans and or/ Ex Military require deeper pre-screening for complications from TBI and contraindications from multiple Rx medication therapy, and as such, may be disqualified at a higher rate and/or require longer preparation and detoxification????

2) Veteran patients and their guides should ideally be accompanied by other Veterans in the session for full trust capacity

3) Members of the Special Forces who have undergone trauma-based conditioning and who's kill-instinct reactions are unconscious should not undergo this therapy unless under extremely rigorous conditions of safety, including having fully trained security staff in the event of a combat or op flashback.

What has been your experience and/or does anyone have any further suggestions or discussion?

A most humble welcome to all. I am Carlitos. Many of you know me under my Anglo name. I'm more known in this community for the media and advocacy I have produced, however, these last 3 years I have worked in Mexican clinics with addicts and PTSD patients and have branched out into my own medicine work. Honored to be here with you all.
