Psychedelic Rehab

Interesting NY Times piece on official approval to pursue medical research into Psilocybin (thanks to Marsha at MoQ-Discuss for the tip off). And on that subject, look out for Sue Blackmore’s piece on Albert Hofmann – father of LSD – on BBC Radio 4 (19th April 3:45)

Typical comment on the NYT piece

“Surgery comes with risks, but we see no clamour to criminalize surgery”

Odd that the Radio 4 series is called “In the Footsteps of Giants” rather than “On the Shoulders of Giants” – mixing their metaphors.
