I don't know if this is the right subforum, but I have a question about LSD. First of, I do not take drugs. I'm trying to explain it to a friend.

What are the positive (if any) and negative effects on your brain and body when on LSD?

I looked online, but only found forums with a lot of bias. I prefer a scientific perspective.

For a scientific perspective go to PubMed, try the keyword LSD [ti].

For example: An animal model of schizophrenia based on chronic LSD administration: old idea, new results. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21352832

or for a more positive note: The neurobiology of psychedelic drugs: implications for the treatment of mood disorders. http://www.nature.com/nrn/journal/v1...l/nrn2884.html
