"Maybe, just maybe, after more than 30 years in the wilderness, this powerful, misunderstood but potentially mind-healing class of drugs is ready to be rehabilitated."

yes, we must support MAPS and other "medical-psychedelic" endeavors - seems to be the most substantial way forward.

theres no defenitive answer to this, and honestly i think it varies from person to person, i myself feel like a dullard after i drink.

I usually dont drink more than a couple times a week, and never more than once hard a month, but psychedelics i might go hard once a week and not worry about it, they give such a different experience i dont feel like i get the downer i get from alcohol.

"At first, many scientists called these drugs "psychotomimetics" because their effects appeared to mimic the symptoms of schizophrenia and other mental illnesses. However, many users rhapsodised about the life-changing insights they achieved during their experiences, so much so that in 1957, British psychiatrist Humphry Osmond proposed that the compounds be renamed "psychedelic", from the Greek for "mind-revealing". The term caught on, and psychiatrists started experimenting with the drugs as treatments for mental illness."

see that's really interesting shit!!! leave it to scientists to think of a name like psychotomimetics.

"And apparently the FDA and the McLean Hospital agree, since both have approved Halpern's plan to test MDMA as an anti-anxiety drug for a dozen late-stage cancer patients. Halpern still needs permission from the Drug Enforcement Administration, but he expects to begin recruiting patients soon."

what would it be like to be in the late stage of cancer and trip on MDMA?

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

It'd probably be like a dying person under the scorching desert sun being given a cool bottle of water. :shrug:
