Hallucinogins have shown promise in treatment of depression, PTST, and addiction. One problem is very few studies done because of onerous DEA rules for research. Bigger problem is self medication. Safe treatment with any psychoactive substance requires professional supervision. LSD has caused some serious mental side effects in the past.
