Yeah, I think this one might actually be good.
I will be watching this.

October 12, 2009. "Inside LSD" Broadcast on National Geographic Explorer 11/3/09 -- Host a Viewing Party to Build Community and Increase MAPS Membership With Our Matching Grant Program!

On Tuesday, November 3 at 10:00 PM EDT/7:00 PM PDT, National Geographics "Explorer" program will be featuring a documentary about the renewal of psychedelic research, focusing on LSD and psilocybin. The episode "Inside LSD" interviews several of MAPS colleagues and friends including pioneering psilocybin researcher Charles Grob, M.D. and one of the cancer patients in his psilocybin /cancer anxiety study

Here is how the show is described by National Geographic:

"Now science is taking a fresh look at LSD, including the first human trials in over 35 years. Using enhanced brain imaging, non-hallucinogenic versions of the drug and information from an underground network of test subjects who suffer from an agonizing condition for which there is no cure, researchers are finding that this trippy drug could become the pharmaceutical of the future. Can it enhance our brain power, expand our creativity and cure disease? To find out, Explorer puts LSD under the microscope." [read more].

We encourage MAPS supporters to host a viewing party in order to inform your friends and family about the benefits of psychedelic psychotherapy. In addition to this new documentary, MAPS has DVDs available of the Peter Jennings documentary, Ecstasy Rising, the best documentary ever made about MDMA. Depending on how you organize your party, you could show Ecstasy Rising at the same gathering after or before "Inside LSD." After watching one or both documentaries, wed like you to ask your friends and family to become MAPS members. This is perfect chance to take advantage of the 10-10-10 matching grant program mentioned above. If you are interested in hosting a party, please contact brian@maps.org with "National Geographic Party" in the subject line for more information about what materials MAPS can send you for distribution to the people at your party.

I just watched it, and that test on the rats at the end I found to be bullshit.  I wanna know if they get the same results injecting the lsd into rats in a natural environment.  I mean if someone kept injecting me with lsd in a cage i would go crazy too.

I saw it and thought it was great. It was very pro-lsd/psychedelics use, compared to a lot of other shows

I thought this already showed? Is there any internet link to the whole documentary?

People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't
think that's what we're really seeking. I think what we're seeking is an
experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely
physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and
reality, so we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.:flowerchild:

I definitely dont see it as being bullshit man.

If you were given what would be considered a nice dose for a person (160mics), to a mouse, of fucking course theyd show signs of something similar to schizophrenia. Especially since its injected everyday for a month.

I thought the program was pretty pro-hallucinogens and interesting.

You guys said the same thing...

And yeah, they were dosing the FUCK out of those rats.  A quick wiki search reveals that a lab rat weighs about 450g, or say one pound.  Compare that with an average person who is, say, 130 pounds.  You're looking at an intravenous dose of 130 big hits by today's standard.  No wonder they're fucked up. 

Although they did seem to be using this study to research cures for schizophrenia rather than effects of LSD - if they were trying to determine long term effects of LSD use, this study is certainly not going to work considering the average psychedelic user's usage pattern :lol:

I don't know why nobody ever grasps this but here goes:

The rats were being dosed in that range because intelligent people did their jobs, looked into it, and found the closest analog to human dose response that they could.

Rat serotonurgic systems are very different from ours, and that has to be taken into account when dosing them.
