Likely so. Finally there can be useful research as in the early 1950s instead of a Leary-type craze.
Psychedelics impair reality contact. They can make adverse future problems that need to be prepared for appear as not a problem.
Most drugs are claimed to have some therapeutic quality by users – that doesn’t mean they’re safe or healthy with no adverse side-effects or long-term consequences. Crackheads I’m sure would give their drug of choice high scores on a survey and claim it improves their mood too.
So the elite mall crowd taking ketamine what happens afterwards? Do they return to cruising the cosmetic counters in Bloomingdales? I find it hard to believe that after an intense mystical experience …..

The topic of this article is like a flash-back from the sixties. Let the reader beware.
My first “accidental” LSD trip at age 17 many decades ago was life-changing in a positive way. It included the mysticism, the challenge, the psychological reprogramming mentioned in the article.
I quit running around, got a job, stayed home at nights studying. The changes enabled me to be accepted at university. I worked my way through college, still taking LSD occasionally and smoking pot regularly. Later on entered a “rocket scientist” career and made a ton of money before I retired. I’ve never had a bad trip.
Legalization is meaningless. I’ve never had any hassle obtaining LSD or any drug, and I’ve never been arrested on a drug charge, even though I’ve used them for over 50 years.
Thank you, Shaginaw. I’m 72, and I dropped acid when I was 17 also. Changed my life. Deep depression gave way to resounding hope. I went from flunking school to being number one student. I’ve retired from a good career in IT, and I remain eternally grateful for LSD.
