The Acid test - Cosmos Magazine

COSMOS Magazine Inside the Mind Issue
Link: COSMOS Magazine Inside the Mind Issue.

Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann with a model of the LSD molecule.

"The acid test" by Alex Wilde, a short feature article about LSD. It's been banned for 35 years, but some scientists argue that a comeback for the therapeutic use of psychedelic drugs is overdue. Is there a place for LSD in medicine today? A nice history from the Swiss biochemist Dr. Albert Hofmann's famous bicycle ride to todays push to resume studies. The "Inside the Mind" issue is actually a back-issue of Cosmos, Issue 13 dated, February 2007. The other articles in this issue are pretty interesting as well. There is quite a bit of content on the site and its well worth the visit.
