High Tech California Workers Taking LSD

[From article]
It seems unlikely, but that’s apparently what some Silicon Valley professionals have been doing - and reporting great results.
According to Rolling Stone, a growing number of people are experimenting with "microdoses" of psychedelics to help them work.
A microdose of LSD is around 10-15 micrograms, approximately a tenth of a “normal” dose.

Psychedelics researcher Dr James Fadiman discussed microdosing withVice, saying: ‘People do it and they’re eating better, sleeping better, they’re often returning to exercise or yoga or meditation. It’s as if messages are passing through their body more easily.”
“But what many people are reporting is, at the end of the day, they say, ‘That was a really good day.’ You know, that kind of day when things kind of work.”
