I really want to change the world, and I feel like we can legitimately take steps forward if we moved together and got something going.

they can absolutely be harmful and you’re foolish to think otherwise. the potential for mental damage with these substances, especially LSD from what i have seen, is very real. it is, after all, a research chemical and is vastly different from the ancient entheogens and plant medicines. people abuse psychedelics; my best friend from high school is now in a psychiatric ward from doing acid too frequently. many people on this sub seem to be very naive, going around thinking psychedelics are the perfect be-all end-all cure to everyone’s problems. the curing of humanity and all of the problems we have created for ourselves and this planet is way bigger than psychedelics. yes, they can help immensely in expanding consciousness and are sure to play a big role in the future of humanity, but the answers lie inside all of us and what we consciously choose to do on a daily basis, regardless of whether or not one chooses to use these substances.
