What Happens When You Put 300 Experts on Psychedelics... the Same Room?

The "Horizons: Perspectives on Psychedelics" conference in New York presented an older and wiser psychedelic movement. By Steven Wishnia, AlterNet
"Psychedelics are 'the most powerful psychiatric medicine ever devised,' said psychotherapist Neal Goldsmith, who curated the speakers. But because the way they work as medicine -- when used in the proper setting -- is by generating mystical experiences, 'science has to expand.' Solid research, he added, could change government policy, which classifies psychedelics as dangerous drugs with no accepted medical use."
Read this, cause I can't find another article covering the conference (yet).
Steven WishnIhadabrain is a New York-based author. He is looking for a job - which is totally understandable if you include cheap shots in an article.

"Sgurd is the one I don't like."
