LSD and other psychedelics not linked with mental health problems

"The authors found no link between the use of psychedelic drugs and a range of mental health problems. Instead they found some significant associations between the use of psychedelic drugs and fewer mental health problems.

The results are published in the 19 August edition of journal PLOS ONE and are freely available online.

LSD and other psychedelics not linked with mental health problems

Pretty interesting findings, especially when considering earlier findings that psilocybin can be used to treat the so-called "suicide headaches." It's a shame that the "big government" promoters would rather promote their foolish anti-drug hysteria rather than listen to reason and science, which has shown that "psychedelics" can be used safely as a legitimate medicine.

"For the first time since the 1970s, researchers are being allowed to study the potential medical properties of the most tightly controlled substances around. But it's not easy."

"By spring we had given psychedelic drugs to over 200 subjects and had learned a lot about how to run sessions. Eighty-five percent of our subjects were reporting that the experience was the most educational of their lives. These testimonials were pleasing because most therapies, including psychoanalysis, traditionally reported around thirty-three percent positive change."

There have been many studies over the years supporting the benefit of psilocybin, the psychoactive chemical occurring naturally in some mushrooms.

The most authoritative study yet was published this week by a team from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, according to GOOD:
