Some Timothy Leary info

Recommended Posts

Screw Timothy Leary. The idea of treating migraines and clusters with LSD and other tryptamines was already developing when Leary burst on the scene. He was not in the vanguard - LSD had been investigated for 15 or so years before he got involved and screwed things up.

From the article:

LearyÂ’s hucksterism and the insouciance with which he regarded scientific protocol undeniably imperiled the study of psychedelic drugs, about which he testified before the U.S. Senate in 1966. His widespread advocacy of hallucinogens helped give rise to the Summer of Love, but also helped ensure the criminalization of these substances. Only recently have scientists and psychologists been able to win regulatory approval for their study.
