"The purpose of our new software:
ZigZag shares with the purpose of the
original ZigZag rolling paper the intention of
facilitating Mind Altering Experience.
Also both are, in their respective ways, wrappers,
the earlier paper version for (your choice of)
smokable substances, and ours for (your
choice of) information and/or ideas.
The difference between these ZigZags is
that while the earlier version, most widely utilized
during the mind-bent 1960s, acted by chemical
pathways, our newer ZigZag is able to achieve
perhaps equally mind-blowing effects simply by
opening your mind to new ways of connecting
what comes out of it into your computer.
