A resurgence in LSD research

It's drug week at Popular Science and Shaunacy Ferro would like you to know why doctors can't give you LSD — and why they maybe ought to be.


  1. Great clip of one of those early (informal) experiments (with Dr. Humprhy Osmond administering mescaline).  

    The Mescaline experiment: Humphry Osmond and Christopher Mayhew

    They even have the guy (Christopher Mayhew…who was apparently a Member of Parliament at the time) commenting on it decades later:

    “Perhaps half-a-dozen times during the experiment I would be withdrawn from my surroundings and from myself and have an experience, a state of euphoria, for a period of time that didn’t end for me.  That didn’t last for minutes, or hours, but for months.”

  2. If you are in Oakland/SF/The Baym then check out the MAPS Psychedelic Science 2013 conference – http://www.maps.org/conference/ with a HUGE selection of researchers, artists, journalists, ethnobotanists… All at the Oakland Marriott.
