Yeah, psychedelics being illegal really is a good thing. It's obvious we shouldn't use compounds that broaden our understanding of the world around us and ourselves, and can help us become more happy and productive human beings. Fuck those degenerates that want that.

That study is useless. We don't even have the dosages taken by the test subjects.
Their research is restricted because redpilling en masse is dangerous
LSD has helped terminal patients comes to terms with mortality

Maybe that's because they're high as fuck.
If I was high as fuck, I probably wouldn't care that I was dying soon, just give me more acid.
You are useless, because you clearly can't read
Again, what is it with you idiots who can't read?
I did not see that anywhere in the article >>38904599 linked. I did not check for reference material as I'm just bumming around during lunch but 12 patients is still an incredibly small pool.
What, why the fuck are you calling it being "high". It's not alcohol or heroin. But yeah obviously you don't know what you are talking about, but you are still writing about it. Like almost everyone on /pol/. Time to leave this shitty board

I'm pretty sure if you see a number as a color your brain is fucked. That's a "link" where there's not supposed to be a link. That means your mind is so messed up you think numbers are fucking colors. Enjoy your future as a hobo.
>I'm pretty sure if you see a number as a color your brain is fucked
That phenomenon is the result of one simple effect: observing brainwaves.
The reason LSD has allowed scientists to win nobel prizes with discoveries about quantum mechanics and DNA is because it reduces the amount of filtering the brain does to present sensory information to you.
What you experience is that you realise that what you experience is NOT your senses, what you experience is your senses sending information to your brain, which your brain presents as a conscious experience through different brainwaves and action potentials.
Your sensual perception seems to blend together, is because you experience just HOW this sensory information is processed, and not the presentation you normally have, ultimately, what you experience as vision, hearing, smell, taste and touch are just different modes of one phenomenon: action potentials. They ARE linked.
Of course if you actually KNEW something relevant about psychedelics and psychology you wouldn't make such a fool out of yourself with your ignorant post.

NO FUCKING WONDER THEY'RE GOING TO BE MORE ANXIOUS
>unless you're talking about spice and new generation shit which you're correct about
That's what I meant. I know not all RCs are dangerous but it would be better to legalize the real thing.

OP, you need to make a thread about how Jews control the world or how Stanley Kubrick fake the moon landing. Or something about Africans being sub-human. Only time you'll get discourse on this shitty circle-jerk of a contrarian board. It's like all the fedora-tippers were banned from reddit and made this their home.
it makes you subhuman
*insert pol buzzwords here*
they have no honestly argument and are not afraid to show it

HPPD is real and some people still experience effects for the rest of their lives.
it just takes 1 hit and your life is fucked up forever.
Fine, I'll promise to stop posting images (on an image-board) if you promise to actually refute the points that >>38906098 and >>38906557 make, because from a statistical analysis perspective, they are quite valid points.
Lack of random sampling and an extremely small test subject pool (less than 30 typically, but 30 is no magic number either) both lead to a lack of credibility. This is universally accepted in the scientific community, so by the OP posting faulty studies while trying to disregard the actually level of validity of the studies, you are contradicting yourselves.
The thread was regarding their illegality. They're not dangerous substances and you still have not given a good reason as to why they are or why they should be illegal beyond the fact that you believe they didn't help contribute to a particular outcome.

Psychedelics aren't for people who have current or underlying mental conditions. It's also not a good idea to take them with emotional baggage. This is why people can have bad trips which trigger mental health issues.
>but you support a proper study done with psychedelics?
Yes of course, more knowledge is always better when actually gathered correctly.
>that is essentially impossible while DEA scheduling is still a thing
Not necessarily with enough governmental permission. I mean hell, meth is legally made by a company based out of Illinois with approval in treatment of extreme obesity and ADHD, so with respect to scheduling exemptions, anything can happen.
But I agree that permissions to conduct drug studies should be more lenient in general.

If you read my post (>>38906557
), I never actually took a side in the issue. All I said was that OP cited a very shitty study to back his argument.
I'm actually a lolbertarian so I agree with OP, but for different reasons, because it really irritates me when someone uses such a shitty study to try to use as evidence to prove their point.
