    That's a toughie. It could hurt or help but I have no idea which one. Seems likely to be pretty scary for her.

    It's been out for a year, but nonetheless this thread deserves a bump due to Michael Pollan's latest book, How to Change Your Mind.

    Free and abridged version: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...-medicine.html

    Also, this: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/tripofcompassion
    and this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_g_WYVKs9I

    FDA has granted "Breakthrough Therapy" status to MDMA- and psilocybin-assisted therapy for treatment of severe PTSD and depression. Both could be legal, clinically-accepted treatments by 2021.

    He also did the full book tour thing last year and was on a ton of podcasts you can listen to. His Joe Rogan episode is a good one, because drugs and Joe Rogan, but there's quite a few to choose from.

    I've got Pollan's 'How to Change Your Mind' audio book in .mp3 format.

    If anyone wants a copy, send me a PM and I'll email it to you.

    Believe me - I fucking hate hippies (part of the reason for my hippie hatred is that they are the ones who pretty much ruined psychedelic research, at least in this country), but LSD and other psychedelics are valuable tools for understanding life. I'd rather see people undergoing psychedelic therapy than being turned into zombies with anti-depressants and such.
    Fucking word...

    To add.
    I reserve these compounds for very special occasions. But everytime time I come out of a trip, I'm so at ease and maintain a clear and objective headspace. IME, psychedelics when used correctly are massively therapeutic.

    What I wonder about - and maybe it's addressed in the book - is the value of psychedelic therapies for those who've already done those and been there, a lot. It's pretty unlikely that I will have an experience more intense than I've already had in the past. Granted I haven't taken every substance out there so I dunno.

    My experience is yes, the idea is not to have a stronger experience, but the set and setting of a trip would be different each time. The journey takes on a different experience because of the therapeutic context, and the integration work that goes on after. Iím in the boat that you donít necessarily need some psychedelic therapist guiding your experience, but someone skilled at having you feel safe and held. The real work comes during integration.

    For folks Iíve seen who have taken substances in the setting of a serious illness the journey can be very different.

    At least I know he was in an LSD trial at Harvard in that time frame and it had to be stopped because of him losing his shit, but he always said that after they stopped the trial they broke the code to see who was on acid and who had the placebo and they discovered that he was on the placebo!
    Was your dad a divinity student?!

    I'm not sure what he was considered in that time period, he did a lot of coursework in that area, but also history and biology. He was probably the most educated person I've ever met, like to a crazy extent. He had postgraduate degrees in Byzantine History and Neurobiology and worked as a history teacher at Harvard for a while before switching to a job in research biochemistry, then going to medical school, then did a surgical residency but decided he was sick of blood after being in the infantry in Europe in WW2 and so he did a psychiatric residency and he ended up as a psychiatrist. So, maybe.

    Not sure about current academic research, but in the 90ís, lsd was not used in research (mammal, nonhuman), because it had a lot of various and unpredictable behavioral responses. The grad student that I knew that worked in the psychopharmacology lab said that it was considered ďdirty.Ē This was in comparison to DMT, silly-ciben, mescaline, and mdma.
