These days, virtually anyone can be found guilty of felony possession of a Schedule 1 controlled substance. The US Federal Government can actually arrest you for possessing a Schedule I substance in your brain!
Dimethyltryptamine, or DMT is more popularly known as “spirit molecule” for its ability to transcend human consciousness into different states. According to the feds, drugs with hallucinogenic properties such as DMT is a federal offence.Schedule 1 drugs are defined as: : “Unless specifically excepted or unless listed in another schedule, any material, compound, mixture, orpreparation, which contains any quantity of the following hallucinogenic substances:”
3,4-methylenedioxy amphetamine,5-methoxy-3,4-methylenedioxy amphetamine,3,4,5-trimethoxy amphetamine,Bufotenine, Diethyltryptamine.Dimethyltryptamine. (DMT)methyl-2,5-diamethoxyamphetamine.Ibogaine.Lysergic acid diethylamide.MarihuanaMescaline.Peyote.N-ethyl-3-piperidyl benzilate.N-methyl-3-piperidyl,benzilate.Psilocybin.Psilocyn.Tetrahydrocannabinols.
DMT, which occurs naturally in the brain is known as the only psychedelic drug which is produced naturally by the human body. DMT was first discovered in the brain by Nobel laureate, Julius Axelrod of the National Institutes of Health in 1972.
DMT ‘s effect is similar to serotonin, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the brains of certain animals.
Under federal law, all of us not only possess DMT but also has the ability to manufacture the substance from our body and this could be a federal offense. What’s more, DMT can also be found in blades of grass so the federal officers can come to your home and arrest you for watering your grass thereby cultivating DMT right in your own backyard.
All these matters because all things are made with elements like hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, etc. and drugs is just one of them. Unfortunately, the government categorizes between “legal” and “criminal” drugs and the difference between substances are extremely similar. The only differences is the basic arrangement of the molecular bonds of both serotonin and DMT. And if the government outlaws certain molecules, anyone who possesses it or use it could be arrested.
Which brings us to another question, if elements such as nitrogen, hydrogen and carbon are considered as legal, then why are certain formations of these elements considered as illegal? Despite the elements existing naturally in nature, anyone who arranges these elements a specific way could find themselves in a patent infringement lawsuit.
The government and certain pharmaceutical companies will actually sue anyone who tries to manipulate naturally occurring elements, even those that are fundamental building blocks of the universe itself.
The fact is, we live in an unfree society where people can be prosecuted for simply exploring the most basic components of matter. If we live freely them no molecules that exist in the world has to be monopolized or criminalized by the government and certain institutions. There should be no concept of criminalizing certain arrangement of molecules in order to prevent others from gaining anything and everyone else to profit off these molecules.
But why are such molecular structures criminalized anyway?
We go back to DMT again because this is one molecule that enhances the human consciousness. If a molecule could expand human consciousness, it could be seen as a threat by the government. And in attempt to stop it from being used on a massive scale, the federal government does what it can to control those who can utilize DMT for profit.
