“I’m not new to the idea of mushrooms,” she casually shared. “I don’t really like chemical things, really. [LSD advocate and researcher] Timothy Leary was a friend of mine, so that acid was nice and pure, but I’m not really looking for chemicals, and I don’t like to feel speedy.
“But I’ve done Ayahuasca [a psychelic brew made of various plants] and I’ve done mushrooms and things like that. But I like those drugs in the outdoors—I’m not a city-tripper.”
This shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise, considering Susan is a self-proclaimed “hippie chick.” Still, the Tammy actress is somewhat conservative when it comes to drug use.
“My attitude about marijuana or anything is, ‘Don’t be stoned if you have to pretend you’re not,’” she explained (hey college kids, take note).
“You want to be prepared and not have responsibilities. It does remind you of your space in the universe—your place in the universe—and reframe things for you. I think you can have some very profound experiences.”
