In my first post, I was already researching and focused on my topic, LSD. After my meeting with Michael, I got confirmation on something I had suspected: the thesis for my proposal (and research paper for that matter) is going to be a weird, three headed monster. The first part of the thesis will be on the history of LSD and how it became illegal. The second part of my thesis will be on the how LSD needs to be rescheduled in the government so that researchers are able to have access to it. The third part of my thesis will be on the promising results of new research emerging on LSD: the benefits it has on patients with mental illness and the finding that it doesn’t have a high potential for abuse.
