This thread is a fresh start from a recent one concerning illegal drug use that had to be closed. Its purpose is to discuss the possible role of psychoactive drugs in medical treatment along with the various risks and side effects. Discussion may be related to illegal recreational drug use, an obviously highly controversial subject in the public sphere with many competing propaganda campaigns. As such strict rules are in place. Participants may only link to and discuss peer-reviewed papers. No personal beliefs, opinions or anecdotes are allowed. Furthermore what is linked must be the original source i.e. not a news report of a study. Posts that do not comply with this will be deleted. If the thread cannot abide by these rules it will be closed. This is to encourage a productive, academic discussion. Not a pro/anti drugs flame war.
