Most of us remember CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s three-part series “Weed,” in which he made the case for the use of medical marijuana. A recent CBS poll revealed that 88% of Americans say they favor medical marijuana use as more research proving its medicinal value surfaces.
Our January book, Acid Test: LSD, Ecstasy, and the Power to Heal by Tom Shroder, looks at other maligned drugs as potential game changers for those suffering from mental illness.
Acid Test is a fascinating, transformative look at the therapeutic powers of psychedelic drugs, particularly in the treatment of PTSD, and the past 50 years of scientific, political, and legal controversy they have ignited. (Amazon).
