Dr. Miller has been working as a clinical psychologist for over 50 years. He’s also been researching psychedelic drugs and tools for therapy for just as long. We discuss specific substances such as MDMA, LSD, and Psilocybin and how each can be used in effective ways for people’s benefit. We also discuss the use of natural Hot Springs for healing effects near the end of this podcast.
Richard Louis Miller joins us for a discussion on how psychedelics can influence healing. We discuss Richard’s own history with psychedelic substances, and the ways in which he believes psychedelics can help focus our attention and take responsibility for our own wellbeing. Richard shares with us his hopes for the future of the psychedelic movement.

From “X” to Rx: Discussing MDMA with Rick Doblin An Excerpt from “Psychedelic Medicine” by Dr. Richard Louis Miller
OK, some of you aren’t old enough to have lived through the era of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. I am, but I was busy studying, so I missed out on all three. Rats! However, there were some exciting things going on. Especially the discovery of some pretty interesting psychotropic drugs — not just because they could take you on trips that allowed you to “taste” color, but because they had enormous healing potential. Dr. Miller’s book explores the tumultuous history of psychedelic drug research and the efforts to restore psychedelic therapies. We will discuss the research done on MDMA, Psilocybin, LSD, and Ayahuasca. And in case you’re wondering, no, we’re not talking about just chewing shrooms man, these are serious medical, double blind, placebo-controlled studies. With the war on opiates right now, I think it would be a grand idea to have some alternate ammunition, don’t you? Join us Tuesday to learn about Psychedelic Medicine.
California has legalized recreational use of marijuana. The law went into effect January 1st, 2018. Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recently stated that he is rescinding the Cole Memo which had protected states from federal interference regarding cannabis laws.
We’re back! To start things off right this year, we’re happy to have Dr. Richard Louis Miller on the show to discuss his new book Psychedelic Medicine: The Healing Powers of LSD, MDMA, Psilocybin, and Ayahuasca. Dr. Miller expertly helps guide us through the basics of psychedelic therapy, as well as where we currently stand in terms of politics and advocacy.
