This next meeting of Liverpool Cafe Scientifique will undoubtedly be very popular "Can hallucinogens and entactogens be good for your health?"
Under UK law, hallucinogenic drugs such as LSD and psilocybin (‘magic mushrooms) and entactogenic drugs such as MDMA (‘Ecstasy’) are illegal because they are deemed to have no therapeutic value and have, or are capable of having, harmful effects sufficient to constitute a social problem. Subsequently most information provided about drugs is negative in tone and concerns the dangers of use. Whilst it is clear that for some individuals and populations drug use has adverse outcomes, most drug users do not experience harm and even some of the most socially damaging drugs, such as heroin and cocaine, have legitimate medicinal uses.
