Microdosing LSD in Montana

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - When we think of psychedelics we think of the 60's, Janis Joplin, tie-dye shirts and the hippie generation.

But the use of LSD has morphed. In fact, many young professionals are self-medicating their anxiety and depression with small portions of hallucinogens. Many say it helps escape the frustrating cycles of overthinking, and others even say it has given them a creative edge in their architecture class.  

But are these young professionals doing themselves more harm than good?

Dr. Robert Munjal from Providence St. Patrick Hospital says there are many dangerous side effects with psychedelia. However, he also said there is some promising research that shows the illegal drug could have some positive benefits. 

“There’s been some recent research on LSD again, so the FDA has started to re-approve studies," he said. "Some of those studies are showing some promising results. Some more recent studies have been on depression and anxiety in cancer patients where the long-term risks were not as worried about. There have been some really good results, so I think that there is potential for positive benefits.”
