Lachs takes up the question of whether we should or should not use drugs, especially with respect to its effect on consciousness. He is critical of those who recommend drug use without due attention to likely consequences, especially to the extent that drug use and experimentation aim to escape reality or to promote a putative expansion of the mind.

Keywords:   Drug use and experimentation, Consequences, Mind-expansion
