I saw a random sticker posted in the street which just said “Legalise LSD”. I found it quite funny, and got me thinking, that’s not a bad idea for a campaign.
LSD is a great example because we don’t have to worry about the “health benefits” aspect of the argument which seem to have taken over the Cannabis debate.
Why not just campaign for LSD just because we are adults who should be allowed to take substances which are not harmful if you do so responsibly, because we should be able to make our own choices?
*Note LSD has harmful effects if you don’t do so in a safe environment to be protected from physical effects in case you get a “bad trip”. Bad Trips are more severe if your dosage is higher. You are more likely to have a bad trip if you suffer from mental illness. There is also risk of long term effects like Flashbacks of Bad Trips, or trigger a mental illness.
Disclaimer: I have never actually taken LSD (or any illicit drug for that matter, not even tried a cigarette, have never got drunk and don’t drink coffee), but I think that we should still have a right to do so on personal choice grounds.
