Entheogens, Society & Law
CASEY WILLIAM HARDISON, Ed.
Daniel Waterman has a Masters Degree in Gold and Silversmithing (1982) and a BA in Fine Arts (1986) from the St. Joost Academy of Arts, Breda, the Netherlands.

He has lived and trained with indigenous shamans in the Amazon region and has facilitated ayahuasca ceremonies since 2001.
Casey William Hardison attended entheogen-related conferences, wrote articles for MAPS and contributed to Erowid. In 2004, Casey was arrested for manufacturing LSD, DMT and 2C-B. Instead of arguing he did not commit the alleged acts, Casey argued that, as long as he harmed no one, he had the human right to engage in his chosen entheogenic praxis. In essence, Casey challenged the drug laws as a discriminatory affront to Cognitive Liberty, therapeutic choice and free religion. The judge rejected these arguments and Casey was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment. He is presently still in prison.
Consciousness = Responsibility.
