Michael Pollan: ‘Capitalism is falling in love with psychedelics. There’s a gold rush’

The food writer has become a psychedelic convert in his mid-sixties. He tells Kevin E G Perry how caffeine fuelled modern civilisation, why the war on drugs has failed, and the benefits of ‘ego death’.
While writing and researching his two most recent books, How to Change Your Mind and This Is Your Mind on Plants, the author Michael Pollan dosed himself with all manner of psychoactive substances, ranging from LSD and mescaline to the venom of the Sonoran Desert toad. The morning we speak he’s at it again.
