Some of the drugs artist Bryan Lewis Saunders took are ambien, abilify, nicotine gum, crystal meth, cannabis, cocaine, mushrooms, and others...
A number of his works are now available for online viewing. Some of his artworks were created under the influence of drugs purchased personally, others as a result of products administered in hospitals.
