Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia

5 07 2009

Vice Magazine TV launched a new drug journalism series called Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia.  The first insallment is about a trek into the amazon to locate and experiemnt with the Sapo frog, a frog whose secretions are used to improve hunting skills (not 5-meo or bufotenine).

It’s broken up into three 20 minute episodes and hosted by a weird and  funny psychonaut named Hamilton.

leave it to disrespectful thrill seekers, with ego centric garbage of the mouth to disturb and belittle the holders of endangered traditional knowledge.

I appreciated Hamilton’s sense of humor and his patience in obviously trying times, but I was a bit shocked at his approach to the ayahuasca – especially since there was an ayahuascera within easy reach. He didnt mix the brew properly, didnt create a proper setting, nor did he seek out anyone to sing him through his journey. His disrespect of the sacredness of the vine speaks loudly of his motivation : he seems not interested in getting the true experience of the substance, he’s just looking to get fucked up.

Vice Magazine has created it’s success by being disrespectful, lewd and hyper-egoic. That’s just their style.
