about this item

Researchers and advocates provide information that could help lawmakers formulation socially responsible and scientifically informed policy on the medical and non-medical uses of psychedelic substances. Research into psychedelics and their effects was outlawed during the 1960s, they say, and only recently have scientists began to catch up with the informal knowledge of the past two generations. Among the topics are a brief history of psychedelics in medical practices: psychedelic medical history before the hiatus, psychedelic psychotherapy near the end of life, conceptual and ethical considerations of psychoactive stimulation and psychoactive substances, psychedelics and criminality: a possible pathway to reduced recidivism, and the US Drug Enforcement Administration: four decades of impeding and rejecting science.
