- A: SILVA: It’s so important I mean to like develop somehow like a spiritual life or relationship with yourself that’s outside of like mundane experience right? And I feel that yeah if its you not buying into religion, which is really hard to nowadays. I think this kind of substances kind of help step out of yourself and like see things differently. So I highly recommend kids to take drugs. No but I’m not talking about cocaine or crystal meth, you know what I’m talking about its like… yeah [laughs] that kind of stuff. CERA: I don’t know. The friends that I grew up with that have done drugs have been like really sad to watch. But [laughs] I’ve seen it get bad with people so. SILVA: I mean that’s the thing, like drugs is such a broad term. And I think its wrong to consider just I don’t know mescaline a drug and putting it in the same bag as crack. Because it really takes you different places.

And, you know, it wasn’t supposed to be three months that I was there, it was supposed to be there just one month and we were going to go make this other film Magic Magic and then it just kept getting delayed so I ended up staying there a lot longer than I’d planned… and I can't wait to go back.
