My question is very simple. Where did HPB say that she and the
Masters used drugs (botanical substances)? So far no such statement
has been produced by you or by Steve. If you can't produce such a
statement, no amout of writing of articles and posting them on
websites will make any difference. If you don't have such evidence
you have no business making the statement to begin with and it would
be better to just admit that the statement is in error.
