Lucid News republished an essay from my Burning Shore substack that got a lot of attention, a hard look at the role that LSD plays (and doesn’t play) in today’s so-called “psychedelic renaissance.”

“If you tune into the journals and journalism of today, or follow the changing waves of psychedelic discourse, you will note that LSD has taken a back seat in academic research, therapeutic protocols, and the cultural imaginary. In an era of “sacred plants,” of commercial formulations and utterly manageable microdosing, LSD the Mighty has drifted to the periphery of our consciousness, its teachings discursively marginalized, almost repressed, even as its tropes are regurgitated as Haight Street kitsch and corny vanity blotter.”
