  13. Ckasp says:

    LSD was made illegal yes, that doesn’t change the fact that it had promising results in treating mental afflictions. Classifying a substance as highly illegal makes it near impossible to do research on. Don’t dismiss a viable research subject just because it sounds weird and dangerous

    • Jelle Zuiema says:

      You can’t get addicted to LSD, you build up a tolerance to it immediately. If I used a standard dose today I would need twice as much the next day just to get the same effects, so you don’t have time to get depended on it. Also an LSD trip is waaaay too intense to do everyday.

    • Samuel White says:

      TaigaGlade you’re a fucking idiot you can’t be addicted to LSD, most psychedelics are near impossible to get addicted to

    • Ckasp says:

      I understand that it comes with some risks, but that’s the case with most medicine. Opiate based painkillers for example are horribly addictive but extremly effective. When used in a controled environment the benefits outweigh the risks.

      As far as side effects go, LSD is really rather mild. And while it is possible to get psychologically addicted to it, it isn’t chemically addictive so there is no real withdrawl. As for the benifits, it looks quite promissing for its use in psychotherapy. Too bad that getting a permit to research it is borderline impossible because of its legal status.

      I’m not advocating that we start handing out sheets of the stuff on the corners of every street, nor am I encouraging it’s recreational use (I’m not going to stop you either, I’m not your mom). I’m saying that it’s use in the 50’s and 60’s wasn’t necessarily wrong or ineffective and that it’s been disproportionally demonized.

      Tl;dr : LSD, not as demonstrably evil and useless as you might think

  16. LUSCID [your user-friendly guide to Science] says:

    We might have more knowledge and better technology to explore the unknown and yet many myths persist even today. The abundance of scientific information is not enough to persuade someone who has strong beliefs on a given topic. That’s why the important question here is *how to communicate the scientific discoveries* – and a lot of academics have already started exploring that problem.

    • The Ranger says:

      And when someone in power has a strong belief that goes against scientific fact, that can present a problem like idiots who don’t accept the problem of climate change.

    • LUSCID [your user-friendly guide to Science] says:

      True, when people with influence propagate such false beliefs, the situation becomes worse because those who already hold that position become even more confident. But I still think that the bigger problem is that most of the people are not critical thinkers and don’t know how to explore a given topic from different angles despite their initial beliefs.

  17. O(∩_∩)O says:

    1:40 so they didn’t proof that LSD was harmful or something else, but simply made it illegal. Sounds suspicious to me…
