There are three side effects of acid. Enhanced long term memory, decreased short term memory, and I forget the third.

After that lengthy discussion about alcohol, I suppose I should cover a sort-of related area. You know, this is a good example of a chapter I’ve been avoiding writing, as it illustrates just how stupid I’m capable of being at times (as if the earlier chapters haven’t done a good enough job, eh?). It’s certainly not my intent to present a story about pot as shocking. Everyone has smoked it, and it’s simply way too commonplace to be of interest, in my opinion.
