Brian Wilson wishes he had never experimented with drugs.

The 73-year-old musician, most famous for his pioneering work with the Beach Boys, spent much of his younger life as a recluse after developing schizophrenia in the 1960s. The condition means he hears voices, but it only began after he started taking LSD, also known as acid.

“LSD made me more creative,” he admitted to Esquire magazine. “It helped me write (Beach Boys’ iconic 1966 album) Pet Sounds. But the voices started after LSD, too.”

These voices still haunt Brian, but not all the time. However he admits he often struggles with the things they say to him.

“They say different things,” he added. “Like ‘we’re going to hurt you’. It’s crazy! But not all the time, yeah. Like every other day.”

Brian was treated for drug addiction and mental health issues by Dr Eugene Landy in the 1970s and ’80s in a desperate bid to put a stop to his reclusive existence.

Dr Landy eventually helped Brian to start functioning again, but he later lost his professional license and was banned from treating the musician following accusations he had brainwashed the star with his extreme method of therapy which involved round-the-clock supervision and total isolation from family and friends.

Some tech workers in Silicon valley are reportedly utilizing the practice of microdosing with LSD to improve their creativity, productivity, and clear their mind. [text removed]

Silicon Valley is known as the hub of innovation, at the forefront of new discoveries and technological development. It’s an industry offering clout and prestige to the most visionary, and it churns out millionaires every day. It literally pays to be one step ahead of technology.

To stay ahead of the curve, some workers are resorting to a stimulant to push them to build bigger and better things — and it’s not caffeine.

As Rolling Stone is reporting, some tech workers are utilizing a different sort of drug to tap into their creative flow: LSD.

Users are consuming about ten micrograms of a normal dose size — called a microdose — which is an amount big enough “to feel a little bit of energy lift, a little bit of insight, but not so much that you are tripping,” according to Rick Doblin, founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies.

Though the idea of microdosing is rooted in the work of a 1930s Swiss chemist named Albert Hofmann, it was introduced in to the public in the modern age in 2011 by a Menlo Park psychologist named James Fadiman in a book called “The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide.” Fadiman says this practice happens all over, but is more commonplace in the Bay Area, where “übersmart twentysomething[s]” employ LSD to be more alert, resourceful, and creative with their problem solving.
