I've started taking cacti recently, having been curious about mescaline since I read The Doors of Perception when I was 14. I reckoned I had as good an idea of what to expect as is possible with a new drug. Anyway, the thing that surprised me the most was how similar the mescaline high is to LSD. The visual hallucinations, the change in thought patterns, the bodily sensations, are distinct, but very similar between the two drugs. One reason this surprised me is that mescaline and LSD are nothing alike chemically. Anyway, it seems not everyone has the same experience; one guy I mentioned this to likened the difference between cacti and acid to that between 'shrooms and ecstasy. So what do you guys think? Are cacti like acid?
