During a recent official Department research expedition that took place deep in the mountains of Colorado our team uncovered a peculiar artifact. The object appeared to be a self-published journal of observations from a respected and storied career medical professional. The subject of which focused on the personal treatment possibilities of legal (state-level in Colorado, not federal) psychedelics such as psilocybin, psilocin, DMT, Mescaline, and Ibogaine.
The stark white, deliberately non-designed, perfect-bound, 50-page book was discovered by an unpaid intern in the basement of an unremarkable and quite frankly disheveled and unorganized Boulder, Colorado book shop—whose name we are redacting.
As a design artifact—this is an art book review, after all—the pamphlet leaves a lot to be desired. It is completely printed in black and white with what we will assume is Helvetica (or Arial) on the covers and (very likely) Times New Roman for the interior body copy and data. These are tried and true fonts and set at a comfortably large size. The alignment on the cover is offset slightly, a little too close to the perfect-bound spine, which gives the whole thing a really nice DIY self-published feel.
The author takes kind measures to administrate the way one could potentially “acquire, produce, and use” psychedelics in the chapter titled Acquisition, Production, and Use of Psychedelics. This is probably the chapter that most Colorado residents would be most interested in.
Other areas of the book like Chapter 9: Case for Low and Moderate Dose Treatment explore ways the drug can enhance peoples lives while limiting the extreme effects. The book is very detailed and if you want to know about high dose trips there are paragraphs to greet you.
Overall this is a great book about how and why Colorado-legal psychedelics are so important in the spectrum of mental health, depression, and addiction. I think if you live in Colorado you should buy this book. But even if you don’t live in Colorado you should buy this book.
Apparently the author is selling it on Amazon of all places (along with an even cooler book which we will not mention here) which is conveniently linked to below:
