(NaturalNews) If you are reading this, you are guilty of felony possession of a Schedule I controlled substance.

This is not a joke.

You, like everyone else who is alive and breathing, can be arrested right now by the U.S. federal government, charged with felony possession, then proven "guilty" of that possession because you do possess a Schedule I substance in your own brain.

What substance is that? Dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, sometimes called the "spirit molecule" because of its ability to allow humans to transcend states of consciousness.

U.S. federal code, defines Schedule I drugs as: "Unless specifically excepted or unless listed in another schedule, any material, compound, mixture, or preparation, which contains any quantity of the following hallucinogenic substances:"

(1) 3,4-methylenedioxy amphetamine.
(2) 5-methoxy-3,4-methylenedioxy amphetamine.
(3) 3,4,5-trimethoxy amphetamine.
(4) Bufotenine.
(5) Diethyltryptamine.
(6) Dimethyltryptamine. (DMT)
(7) 4-methyl-2,5-diamethoxyamphetamine.
(8) Ibogaine.
(9) Lysergic acid diethylamide.
(10) Marihuana.
(11) Mescaline.
(12) Peyote.
(13) N-ethyl-3-piperidyl benzilate.
(14) N-methyl-3-piperidyl benzilate.
(15) Psilocybin.
(16) Psilocyn.
(17) Tetrahydrocannabinols.

You are a criminal drug manufacturer

What's the big deal about this, you say? Well, for starters, DMT is manufactured inside your own brain. As explained by Scientific American:

DMT is the only psychedelic known to occur naturally in the human body. In 1972, the Nobel laureate Julius Axelrod of the National Institutes of Health discovered DMT in human brain tissue.

Under existing federal law, you not only possess a Schedule I controlled substance, you manufacture it!

Thus, under existing federal law, you can be arrested at any time and charged with felony drug possession.

But wait, it gets even crazier

It turns out you not only manufacture DMT in your brain, by the way. You also cultivate this illegal drug in your own yard. Yep, DMT is also found in blades of grass, meaning that when you water your law, you are actively cultivating an entire yard of a Schedule I controlled substance.

If you think the government arresting people for growing home gardens on their lawn is bad, just wait until the DEA starts conducting armed drug raids on homeowners with nice lawns. "Freeze! You're under arrest for felony drug possession!" "But I was just mowing my lawn..." "You mean your DMT FACTORY, slave scum?"

DMT, a neurochemical similar to serotonin, is also manufactured in the brains of cats and other animals. This means that if you breed cats and sell them, you are a drug dealer under U.S. law.

Why this matters

All chemicals in existence are made of the same stuff: elements like hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen and so on.

Drug control laws state that a certain arrangement of these elements into a molecule makes that molecule criminal. An "illegal" molecule, however, may have all the same elements of a "legal" molecule, just strung together in a different pattern.

Here's the molecular map of a "legal" serotonin molecule:

And here's the molecular map of a "criminal" DMT molecule:

Note that both molecules are very similar and actually made of the same basic stuff (elements). The only thing different is the arrangement of the molecular bonds.

When a government outlaws certain molecules, it is essentially criminalizing the order and arrangement of elements which are, by themselves, completely legal.

This brings up a very important legal argument: Can anyone really criminalize the arrangement of elements which are individually considered perfectly legal? In other words, if nitrogen, hydrogen and carbon are considered legal, how can it be criminal to merely arrange them in certain formations?

Patents on molecules

In addition to the legal issues state above, intellectual property (patent) laws state that certain arrangements of elements are the monopoly property of corporations such as drug companies. Under patent laws, arranging nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon and other elements into particular structures makes you a thief!

But philosophically, what have you stolen? Nothing! The elements already exist, and all possible combinations of all elements already exist as probabilities or permutations. To arrange elements in specific ways cannot possibly be "stealing" something, as these are the fundamental building blocks of the universe brought into existence by the Creator for the very purpose of making something.

Governments criminalize fundamental functions of life

Both of these ideas -- that arrangements of elements can be made criminal or be granted monopoly protection -- are absurd. Elements are the building blocks of matter, and the rearrangement of those elements is absolutely essential to all life. In fact, the very foundation of biological life is the continuous rearrangement of elements through digestion, cellular metabolism, tissue repair and even cognition.

The human body creates elements that the U.S. government says are "criminal." (DMT, for example.) The human body also creates chemical structures that the U.S. patent office claims are the monopoly property of corporations (gene patenting, for example).

These are both earmarks of a suffocatingly un-free society that has managed to criminalize and control the very building blocks of all matter in the known universe. In a truly free society, no molecules should ever be criminalized or monopolized. The very idea of patenting genes or molecules is, well, patently absurd. The idea that a plant or a substance can be "criminal" in nature -- even when it comes straight from nature -- is certifiably insane.

Government's laws on drugs are artificial constructs... delusional boundaries put in place by delusional, power-hungry bureaucrats who are ultimately trying to separate humanity from its true nature. In the universe as we know it, there is no universal law "criminalizing" certain arrangements of molecules. That is purely an artificial human construct.

But why, you ask, are such criminalization constructs put into place?

The answer, for DMT at least, is because DMT is the one molecule that allows human consciousness to transcend the mundane and experience a vastly greater experience of reality. Or at least that's what I'm told. I've never ingested DMT or any other illegal drug, but reports on DMT from those who have experienced it are mind-boggling.

To learn more, you really need to watch this film called The Spirit Molecule, featuring Joe Rogan, Graham Hancock, Dr. Christian Meuli and others:

The (really) shocking conclusion to all this

This is not the place to lay out the full story on DMT, but based on my own academic research on this subject, I believe DMT has been made illegal in order to suppress human consciousness.

You know how there's a lot of talk about humanity having a "mass awakening" and maturing to a new consciousness? DMT seems to be the molecule that can initiate that. And so it is suppressed for the same reason fluoride is added to the water: to numb your mind and keep you stupid.

Think about it: Why is a molecule that can expand consciousness such a threat to the government that it must criminalize that molecule and imprison those who attempt to produce it, possess it or use it?
