    Psychedelic drugs

    The '60s were a time of hippies, free love, tie-dye clothing and psychedelic drugs. The '70s, '80s and '90s were mostly about trying to forget the '60s.
    Yet now, as we move into the second decade of this new millenium, people are taking a look back and re-examining what useful ideas we may have been keeping locked up all these years. Well, as far as the drugs are concerned anyway. Public opinion on the medical use of marijuana is at its most positive point since the '60s, with 14 states currently having laws legalizing some form of medical cannabis.

    Now scientists are going even further by looking into the possible uses of other drugs from that era... such as the psychedelics.

    Psychedelic drug

    A psychedelic substance is a psychoactive drug whose primary action is to alter cognition and perception. Psychedelics are part of a wider class of psychoactive drugs known as hallucinogens, a class that also includes related substances such as dissociatives and deliriants.
    The psychedelic experience is often compared to non-ordinary forms of consciousness such as trance, meditation, yoga, and dreaming.
    Researchers at New York University are currently conducting a study in which they are giving terminally ill patients psilocybin, the active ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms. They say that in a controlled setting, hallucinogens can help patients reduce anxiety, personal isolation and fear of death.

    Re: Psychedelic drugs

    Currently psilocybin and other hallucinogens such as peyote and LSD are schedule 1 drugs, meaning they have no recognized medical value by the United States government. Researchers at NYU are hoping this study will help to reclassify the substance.
