of controlling factors that will maximize the
probability of a "good trip" or a "bad trip." If all the controlling factors take one or the other of the
extreme values, success in manifesting the potential effects that constitute a "good" or "bad" trip is
highly likely. If some factors take on "good trip" values and others "bad trip" values, the outcome is

Feedback Modification of Intoxication
It should be stressed that the user is not a passive object to which a certain configuration of
controlling factors can be applied and, as a consequence, certain results will automatically manifest. The
user is monitoring his own state of consciousness; he may deliberately seek to intensify the effects of
certain factors and diminish those of others in order to obtain effects he considers desirable.
This applies both to specific effects and the level of intoxication. If a room is depressing, the (free)
user will leave it. He may select music that will remind him of (and thereby induce) certain experiences,
or he may seek out companions more intoxicated than himself in order to raise his level of intoxication
by means of a "contact high" (see Chapter 17). The effects of all controlling factors are constantly
subject to modification by the actions of the user.3
Variability over Time
Any or all of the above controlling factors may vary from one period of intoxication to the next, and
many are likely to vary considerably over longer time periods. While long-term factors may generally
stay relatively constant for a given user, they can change; as when the user associates with a new
subculture. For example, many students who have used marijuana extensively get interested in
meditation and, once associated with a formal meditative discipline, are often told that the "spiritual"
experiences they have had with marijuana are unreal and diversionary, so that they no longer value such
sorts of experience.
The increasing skill in control and wider range of possible effects as a drug user becomes more
experienced are particularly important. A given user taking marijuana for the tenth time is, in many
ways, a very different person from when he took it for the first time.
THE LEVEL OF INTOXICATION
In the previous discussion, we have treated marijuana intoxication as something that is simply present
or absent; but, in fact, it may be present in various degrees, from the lowest degree possible for a user to
recognize that he is intoxicated, up to the maximum level of intoxication he may obtain. Variation in
level from time to time constitutes another source of variability, as well as being of interest in its own
In studying drug-induced states of consciousness, it is tempting to assume that the level of
intoxication is specified by the dosage of the drug, and this has been done in most laboratory studies.
