I am kind of using the term "for kicks" the same as the reason why some one would go huff some glue. I thought that would be obvious no matter what substance is being used its the reasoning behind the use, I cant put it more plainly than that.

so what's the difference between a junky (or having the attitude of one) 
and "spiritual use"?  You can call whatever an "entheogen" all you want, 
but if you're still an asshole after coming down, you haven't learned 
anything
