MAKING THE CASE FOR DRUGS AND THEIR POWER TO HELP PATIENTS

Despite the illegal status of psychedelic drugs, many Americans are already familiar with their effects. Yet while LSD and MDMA (better known as Ecstasy) have proven extraordinarily effective in treating anxiety disorders such as PTSD, they remain off-limits to the millions who might benefit from them.

Through the stories of three very different men, award-winning journalist Tom Shroder covers the drugs' roller-coaster history from their initial reception in the 1950s to the negative stereotypes that persist today. At a moment when popular opinion is rethinking the potential benefits of some illegal drugs, ACID TEST is a fascinating and informative must-read.

Review:

"With increasing support on both sides of the Atlantic for an end to the war on drugs, journalist Tom Shroder presents a compelling look at the therapeutic benefits of psychedelic drugs. Take a trip through the history, science and politics behind the headlines that should end with a long-overdue national conversation." -- Big Issue
