Background

A description of the experience

Internet article – Dr Oscar Janiger and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) project

Sixty-nine-year-old Loring Ware says that his six to eight doses of LSD in Janiger’s office opened his eyes to "the world around me, but with some of the veils taken away that I didn’t even know were there." Before those experiences, Ware was following what he felt to be an uninspiring career path as a technical illustrator.

"LSD made me less happy with my job," he says. "I recognized the essential meaninglessness of my job." Subsequently, Ware switched careers and became a radio announcer.

Though he hasn’t had much experience with other drugs — other than "a little pot in the 1960s" — he believes that LSD "should be incorporated into some kind of rite of passage for young people, so they enter into adulthood with an understanding of the broadness of life, instead of becoming little cogs in a machine."
