By Kale Knox           When speaking about booze, drugs, and miscellany consumables, one has to keep their ego in check with regards to the experiences they’ve had; especially if the objective is to try and persuade or disengage an audience in such activity. Something else to consider when getting to the root of a brand […]

A night of stirring performance art was found at Black Castle in South Central Los Angeles on Saturday, August 18th 2012.  The club was filled with fire dancing, skin pulling and a human suspension, all performed within a grisly art installation. Upon entering the club, the viewer’s eyes were greeted by an art installation made […]

When I was a little girl smoking pot with my big sister under a graffiti ridden bridge, I always fantasized of walking up to the DEA HQ in D.C. and telling them to personally fuck right off before promptly shitting on their front lawn. Today I was given one of those opportunities, and while I […]

How to Get Down with a Hangover

It’s 1 PM. Too hot to sleep, but you’re too hungover to get out of bed. Your head is throbbing and full of regret. Luckily, what you are going through is a nothing novel. You are not a martyr for the terrible, amoral things you did last night, and although there is nothing we can […]

Hedonistic adventures is how I spent everyday this summer.  Booze in the morning? Sure, but lets not fuck around with beer; lets go straight for  malt liquor. Oh, you have money? Buy some tequila so we’ll have an idea of what our day will be like by noon. Who I am I kidding? I was never […]

When you have a habit, it can become expensive. I’m not exclusively talking about narcotics here, but gourmet food, fashion boutiques, live music shows (my favorite addiction), online dating, abortions – when considering contemporary capitalism, it becomes easy to turn anything into heroin. That is precisely why you should be saving time, money, and felony […]

By Esteban This was an article that I had set out to post about a month ago, and while not as topical as when these bills were put before the House, the War on Drugs still rages on and unless some earth shattering changes are made, prohibition will forever remain a hot button issue. We […]

Without a doubt, the best time of the year to take psychedelic is around the holidays. As refreshing as a bath in Icy Hot (try it), it is recommended that healthy, eligible individuals consume a psychedelic substance at least once annually to clear out those unwanted, lingering, and repressed thoughts like cobwebs in a dingy […]

High on Life – Nature’s Dope

Posted: December 2, 2011 by Esteban in Pragmatic Profligacy

Never mind the fact that any plant you push past your lips unknowingly carries with it the dormant psychoactive alkaloids which will later resurface in that glint of your overly-dilated eyes. Disregard the fact that to truly live a “drug free” existence, one would have to cease the consumption of all forms of nourishment. Let’s […]

The Elephant Living Under the Bridge

Posted: November 8, 2011 by Esteban in Pragmatic Profligacy

The not-so-surprising reality is that most Americans would rather sit in their recliners with eyes glued to the TV like zombies while they denounce, deny, and try and ignore it, but the topic of recreational drug use is one which has proved tireless like the tweak slamming stereotypes they resemble, who ironically also sit in […]
