POTENTIAL FORMS OF CONSCIOUSNESS nIt is lhat our norma) waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted fiom it by the filmiest of screens* theic lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different.. We may go through life without suspecting their existence; but apply the requisite stimulus, and at a touch they are there in all their completeness, definitive types of mentality which probably somewhere have lheir field of application and adaptation. No account of the universe in its totality can be final which leaves these other forms of consciousness quite disregarded."

Leake, who later in life organized the pharmacology lab at the University of California at San Francisco, out of which came divinyl ether for general anesthesia, amphetamines as central nervous system stimulants and nalorphine as a morphine antagonist. . The discovery of amphetamine by Gordon A lies (1927) came about in the search for substitutes for ephedrine and epinephrine for asthma-research that had been going on since the days of Ko Hung. Alles also discovered the psychotropic effects of MDA, a synthetic closely related to the constituents of ordinary nutmeg.

Working givls took lunch breaks at Chinese opium dens, coked-up blacks were impervious to bullets, teenagers puffed reefer and slaughtered whole families-at least according to the tabloids and police gazettes, where these terrifying images of "dope fiends" first gained circulation. Prohibition fever gripped the land. Cantankerous reformers like Carrie Nation and pig-brained torpedoes like Harry Anslinger seized the opportunity to enforce their dubious morality on the nation in the name of "stopping crime." Heroin and cocaine were banned by the Harrison Narcotics Act (1914);
