The Patronage of the Queen of England?

The hallucanogenic drug LSD (lysergic acid dethylamide) came out of the labs of the drug company Sandoz in 1952. It was taken to the UK and distributed by psychiatrists of the day as the new ‘wonder drug’. It was a ‘wonder drug’ along the lines of previous ‘wonder drugs’ like opium, heroin and methadone. In other words it was a disaster.

By the mid-sixties it had made its way onto the streets where it led to misery, delusions and suicide for many, many people. I was there at the time. I know that to be a statement of truth.

Psychiatrist Ben Sessa, who still extolls the virtues of LSD, has been invited by the Royal College of Psychiatrists in the UK to give a presentation on the drug in March of this year. Get ready for a push to explain the errors of the past and how it would be different this time. The utter failure of anti-psychotic and anti-depressant drugs to cure anything coupled with the observable fact that they cause psychosis and suicide will lead to other desperate solutions such as this. Anything to maintain the myth that psychs have some solutions if only they were given more time. How come the Queen of England gives patronage to these bums?
