     Sat Aug 2
Alexander T. “Sasha” Shulgin, godfather of MDMA, inventor of hundreds of psychedelic compounds, and intrepid explorer of the psyche, has died. Given the cultural effects of “ecstasy" around the world and now its use in clinical trials to treat PTSD, his impact is proving monumental.
A memorial service for Sasha and a pot luck reception will be held at the Berkeley Community Theater on Saturday, August 2, 2014, from 1 – 6 pm.
Not everyone knows of Sasha’s innovative chemistry or his seminal books PiHKAL and TiHKAL, written together with Ann Shulgin, or knew him personally. Yet this is a free and inclusive event, open to all whose lives have been touched or transformed by Sasha and Ann's work. Please share the invitation consciously with those who might wish to participate.
RSVP using the Eventbrite link below. Space is limited, and an accurate count will allow us to plan accordingly. You can always cancel your RSVP later at Eventbrite so that others may attend in your place.

Know your rights. This video is well worth the watch to get you through any police encounter.‪‬

Just a friendly reminder from last year. Law enforcement will use any excuse to pull you over once you are inside BRC. If you are pulled over, you will be searched with K9 units. From the time you leave the greeter station till you park and set up camp you are a target for law enforcement revenue. Do not drive over 5 MPH, make sure your license plate is not covered by bikes/hollahoopa or anything else. Have current registration tags and know your rights.
