Modern humans must learn how to relate to psychoactives
responsibly, treating them with respect and awareness,
working to minimize harms and maximize benefits, and
integrating use into a healthy, enjoyable, and productive life.

Abstract
The effects of LSD (50 and 100 mcg. orally) and placebo on attention and concentration were studied in 12 non-psychotic adults by means of various psychological tests (e.g. marking of particular figures in a mass of similar figures). 6 out of the 8 tests showed no significant difference between the scores after placebo and after 50 mcg. LSD. Two tests showed a significant difference between the scores after placebo and 100 mcg. LSD. The decreases in the scores after LSD would probably have been even more significant if it had been possible to rule out the effect of practice.
