--Clues in the Bible, Gnostic texts and the Judeo/Christian tradition that point to the positive usage of entheogens and hallucinogens.
--How the war on drugs (which is also the war on the Goddess) began hundreds of years before Christ with a changing Jewish Priesthood, fanned out into the Christian worldview centuries later, and continues today with the same nefarious intentions.
--The spiritual and scientific effects of using certain entheogens such as mushroom, natural LSD and cannabis.
--Evidence of entheogens also in Hinduism and Buddhism.
--Redeeming John Allegro and his controversial discoveries of The Dead Sea Scrolls. (Jesus is a Mushroom...whadda ya gonna do?)
