But what about the darker side of psychedelics? And we’re not talking about the stigma—you know, like if you eat one piece of LSD you’ll turn into a fried potato that suffers from eternal acid-flashbacks. Rather, we’re referring to the heavier side of tripping made famous by bands like Black Sabbath; or Pink Floyd’s film adaptation of The Wall.
