Alarm as UK citizens to be DRUGGED with Ecstasy and LSD to fight CORONAVIRUS DEPRESSION

While research into the therapeutic potential of psychedelics has been hampered in the past there is a resurgence in interest. Some people are predicting that NHS staff involved in treating patients with Covid-19 will experience psychological problems like post-traumatic stress disorder, and trials have shown that PSYCHEDELICS can help with this.

Microdosing TVoR threads works too.

WibbleAgain - 20 May 2020 11:12:57 (#3 of 28)

How micro? Homeopathic doses?

FrankieTeardrop - 20 May 2020 11:24:06 (#4 of 28)

Normal LSD doses are measured in micrograms, rather than milligrams, so I've no idea precise you have to be to microdose it

Number 19 .... number 19 ... number 19 ....

I love you, no i mean really love you. You're like my best friend.

It's like, you know, we've got this connection, it's amazing, we don't even have to say anything to understand each other. It's just beautiful.

What's that? Oh sorry, nurse. Yes i can come back same time next week.

VoiceofReason could select some better material for his funny threads. Something about 'British waters' would cause endless hilarity. Anything to do with 'British fish', really.

There's nothing stopping you having a bash

You could always start your own comedy threads, see if anyone else finds them funny

A guigal joke would be a thing of wonder.

Q: I say, I say, I say, why did the chicken cross the road?

A: To give a momentary glance to the Mear One mural on the other side and thereafter find itself accused of antisemitism by the crocodile tears of Labour Friends of Israel in pursuit of their agenda to undermine the elected leadership.

Is ecstasy/MDMA potentially beneficial for depression then? I’ve taken it a few times but always worried about the ‘comedown’. The last time I took it, i took rather a lot and worried for days afterwards. I do wonder how much of it is a self-fulfilling prophecy, i.e. if the whole concept of comedowns was done away with, they wouldn’t really exist.

FrankieTeardrop - 20 May 2020 12:54:34 (#14 of 28)

If you take it once, and don't stay up all night taking other stuff as well, you should be alright - the shift in perception towards a more positive view of your fellow humans persists for quite a while.

If you take it at least once a fortnight for about 12 years, you might find the comedowns a problem after a while, or so my friend tells me.

Stellata - 20 May 2020 12:56:57 (#15 of 28)

Staying up all night is a problem. I think it needs to be started in the afternoon.

FrankieTeardrop - 20 May 2020 12:58:18 (#16 of 28)

It is possible to go to sleep on it, unlike speed. However, unlike LSD, you won't feel like you want to go to sleep but can't, so it isn't distressing if you do stay awake.

tasselhoff - 20 May 2020 13:02:22 (#17 of 28)

I took ecstasy once, recently. Quite a lot of it. Bof. Popped a Xanax the next day but didn't have any real comedown. I'd kinda expected more all round.

Dayraven - 20 May 2020 13:03:34 (#18 of 28)

It can get boring trudging round the woods while the sun comes up, waiting for the trip to end so you can get some kip.

Microdosing acid sounds a good idea though. Given the normal dose is about 100 microgrammes, I'm guessing 10 or so would be ok.

The idea of micro-dosing various hallucinogens to treat depression has been around for as long time, thoughbut.
