LSD appears to reduce suicide risk

After being told for years about the psychological risks of LSD, new research suggests that it may actually reduce the risk of suicide. You gotta love science.

What doesn't kill us, will make us stronger.

My guess is that LSD put up against nearly all prescribed drugs would come out as perhaps one of the safest. Yet people are taking prescribed drugs for all sorts of frivolous reasons.

Those "prescription" drugs can f@$! you up! I recently was on statins and they caused all sorts of problems for me, that I'm still trying to recover from.

I took statins for about 6 months and tolerated them well, but I've decided to stay off them. I get the feeling that many of these drugs don't really provide enough benefits to justify the risks and costs.
