In a recent article in the Wall Street Journal of all places, new scientific studies show that using psychedelic drugs can be quite effective in treating depression, anxiety, and addiction—and may have profound things to teach us about how the mind works. I wonder what would Terence Mckenna would have to say about that?
From the Wall Street Journal article:
“To anyone who lived through the 1960s, the proposition that psychedelic drugs might have a positive contribution to make to our mental health must sound absurd. Along with hallucinogens like mescaline and psilocybin (that is, magic mushrooms), LSD was often blamed for bad trips that sent people to the psych ward. These drugs could make you crazy.”
