In this episode, Jonathan talks with his dear friend Lex Pelger. Lex is a co-Founder (along with past podcast guest Brett Greene) of the psychedelic media group Psymposia, an author, and the new host of the legendary psychedelic podcast The Psychedelic Salon.
Lex has recently begun publishing his magnum opus, Anandamide, or: The Canabinoid, a graphic novel about cannabis, the war on weed, and our own endocannabinoid system, based on Moby Dick . He is also co-hosting a cross-country tour of Psymposia’s popular Psychedelic Storytelling events, called The Blue Dot Tour, with a goal of building psychedelic community in “blue cities inside red states”
Jonathan and Lex discuss The Blue Dot Tour, Lex’s new book, and his recommendations for the best children’ books for Awakening Families. Lex also plunges into the question of “How old is old enough” in the context of cannabis, and proposes a new idea on the “why” about cannabis’ potential danger to young brains. You won’t want to miss it.
