Intelligence doesn’t preclude people from smoking #Weed any more than fame does. When those who are under stress need to relax, some turn to it as an escape from reality. Others do it because they believe it enhances their creativity or allows them to stay awake when needed.

If there’s one individual who bestrides the line between lurid fact and fiction, it’s the Great Magician himself, Aleister Crowley! The Rebelled against so-called polite society had partaken of every drug he could lay his hands including heroin, mescaline, cocaine, solvents, alcohol and Cannabis.

Aleister Crowley (October 12, 1875 - December 1, 1947)

  • He was an occultist, poet, writer, yogi, mountaineer and British climber. An influential member in the Occult Organizations Golden Dawn, Astrum Argento and Ordo Templi Orientis.

  • He is famous today for his occult writings, especially for The Book of the Law, the text on which the Thelema philosophy is based, in the foreground of human existence.

  • He earned his notoriety in his lifetime and was called The Most Sinful Man In The World. Among his passions were chess, painting, astrology.

  • The Victorian England’s bad boy believed that the drug fiend was a superior man to ordinary mortals and that to master drugs you have to take them incessantly.

Crowley's drug use hinged around his reinterpretation of ritual magic which demanded that the magician meet with the Gods on the astral plane, rather than invoke them to Earth all the time – you had to get literally high.

Guests to his Sicilian abbey retreat found bowls heaped high with Hash and Marijuana brought in from the Italian mainland.

How Crowley Fit Marijuana Into His Magical Schema?

  • From the beginning Crowley ensured his basic philosophy would yield indulgences of all types.
    He toured America, Mexico, India and the Far East until he found Egypt.

  • Around the flip of the century Egypt was a preferred haunt of westerners desperate to activate to controlled substance and Hash to search out themselves, serving a lot of an equivalent purpose
    as Afghanistan, India and Marijuana did at the end of the hippy trail over 60 years later.

  • While in Egypt, Crowley's Book of the Law was determined to him by his spirit guide Aiwass World Health Organization handily commanded Crowley that:

"To worship American state, take wine and strange drugs ... Be strong O Man! Lust, Enjoy all!”

The magicians surrounds himself with various objects believed to have connections with the entities to be invoked - the magical link of correspondences. The Veracity of these connections is neither her northere - the magician's belief is all that's needed.

Mournful salute and reverence,
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Greetings.
I found your post very
exhaustive and well documented,
as a Thelemite myself,
I commend your journalistic integrity...

However, there is an important typo:

Astrum Argento should either read
as Astrum Argentum, or its "rival branch", (Marcello Mota's claims of being the one true lineage and so on...), in that case, the Argentinum Astrum...

Thank you for your interest in Thelema!!!

Love is the Law, live under will,
The Reverend Maelstrohm Black
