Thanks Eric – not to dispute the potential of LSD-like compounds for psychotherapy as you note (and primary research reflects). Only to note the sense of a circle to square, between your reply citation of ‘both the positive and negative effects’ (. an appropriately balanced emphasis) – and the rosier-sounding, more eye-widening title note, ‘effects of LSD 100% positive’ (. tabloid-like, sensational). My focus of reply goes to the larger, general context of mass media culture of circus-like exploitation. That gets the attention and approval of John Q Tripper, Joe Reader. And we have PT Barnum’s sage advice ‘give the public what it wants.’ Meanwhile, sound well-informed interest in the ‘psychedelic potential’ faces a struggle for legitimacy and wider acknowledgment. Question in view here for me, is how the subject’s frequent tabloid commodification, its ‘high’ exploitation value in narrative – function in such a situation, perhaps fatefully – when final die is cast. Seems a critical issue amid a proliferation of “100% positive” stories being circulated – given the history and trail of events since the 1943 discovery of LSD’s effects. And in general I’d still like to see reply from Principal Investigator(s), when their studies are cited in popular accounts – especially to address any questions of accuracy and validity. Unless scientists and researchers who produce findings amenable to such recourse have some responsibility – to be unaware how their work is cited and utilized in discourse outside their professional communities. I assume the above article was not submitted to Dr Gasser for reply, for him to either affirm or correct (if indicated from his pov as PI) any representation of his work – if he so wishes. Thank you again for your reply Eric, with regards.
