John Newland along with doctors, and scientists took along a camera crew into the mountains of Mexico in search of the Sacred Mushroom. In one scene, a few “brujos” (native shaman) are encountered and agree to guide the party in a mushroom ceremony. In the next scene, John Newland is back in the states, and along with Dr. Andrija Puharich, several ESP tests are conducted on John before and after ingesting the mushroom they call “X”. This really is a fascinating thing to watch considering this was series television (ABC) broadcast nationally in 1961… possibly one of the only times a psychedelic substance was ingested and broadcasted.
