A microdose is when you’ve had just enough of a drug to have a subtle effect, but without the full experience. A cup of tea is a microdose of caffeine. One beer is a microdose of alcohol. And starting in the ‘60s, curious psychonauts... began experimenting with microdosing LSD and mushrooms.
Fadiman suggested that by taking a “microdose” of these drugs, you could get many of the beneficial creative and mindfulness effects, without the hallucinations or trippiness.
Violence is not just hitting someone in the face. Violence is passing legislation and policies to deny a sick persons access to healthcare. Violence is removing peoples autonomy and the ability to have safe abortions. Violence is removing funding for food programs that help feed the starving. Violence is dismantling housing and aid programs that help the homeless. Violence is sanctions placed on "third world" nations leading to starvation and death. Violence is the criminalization of drug use. Violence is discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender or lack thereof, race, ability, or age. Violence isn't just throwing fists or shooting people. Violence has evolved with our society to be far more cunning, shifting and bureaucratic than that.
Removing someones ability to hand out harm reduction services to help prevent overdoses and the spread of disease in their neighborhood is inherently an act of violence.

"I realized how much I was reliving my childhood trauma through my own child. It was affecting my mothering skills. I wanted the cycle of trauma to end with me."
Now, the 31-year-old microdoses a couple of times a week in sub-perceptual doses — very low amounts that don't cause a user to experience a traditional "trip." Nina said the experience has helped her to let go of some of her pain and refocus energy towards her daughter."
He came up with an update to the ‘useless box’
"Suddenly pharmaceutical companies have started to express interest in being involved, but MAPS has declined their overtures. “When we really needed you, you were nowhere,” has been Dr. Doblin's message, referring to the lack of industry interest at the time when MDMA was seen as a dangerous party drug."
"On June 4, 2019, Oakland City Council voted to decriminalize the possession and use of all entheogenic plants. This included magic mushrooms (psilocybin), ayahuasca (DMT), peyote and san pedro (mescaline), and iboga (ibogaine).
All the news headlines focused on how Oakland was the second US city to decriminalize magic mushrooms. Denver become the first city to do so just a couple weeks prior, and I suppose the news was still fresh on everyone’s minds."
"Despite the trip’s short duration, the effects of toad venom — which is extracted from Colorado River toads, also known as Sonoran Desert toads — come on strongly and immediately. It leaves users immobile and unaware, and can cause extreme emotional reactions, euphoria and vomiting, according to drug researchers and users."
