Re: “Preliminary Autopsy Indicates Goode May Have Died of Heart Problem

LSD has many medicinal uses, including treatment of anxiety, PTSD, depression, addiction, and migraines/cluster headaches. MDMA and psilocybin (magic mushrooms) are also quite effective in treating similar conditions. Too bad the federal government always takes a reactionary approach to drugs and outlaws them instead of researching them.

For example, did you know that most migraine medications are chemically nearly identical to LSD? It's fascinating stuff. It's only been in the last several years that researchers are being allowed to use these Schedule I drugs in medical and psychological experiments. I'm a therapist and I eagerly await the day I can use MDMA in my clinical practice-- I do a lot of work with people with PTSD and studies are showing amazing results when MDMA is used in conjunction with traditional therapies.

Because of the ridiculous War on Drugs we're holding back medical research and destroying people's lives. This needs to end NOW.

Re: “Preliminary Autopsy Indicates Goode May Have Died of Heart Problem

Taking a few hits of LSD is not inherently dangerous. People have eaten far more LSD than Troy Goode did (it's been reported he took 4-5 hits at most, lets assume that's true) and been just fine. A lethal dose of LSD is something in the ballpark of 200+ hits at a time depending on potency. There is not one documented case in the medical literature of a person dying of an LSD overdose. Really, Google it. That's 50-60 years of recreational use, probably millions of users during that time, and not a single overdose death.

To suggest that 4-5 hits of LSD killed Troy Goode is just nonsense. To suggest that his death is somehow an appropriate consequence for his drug use is also nonsense.

Troy's family called the hospital at 9pm to check on him. They were told he was in stable condition, and then were threatened with arrest for obstruction of justice if they came to the hospital to see him. His wife received a call at 9:50 saying he was dead. If that's not suspicious I don't know what is.
