Mind-Altering Substances Make a Comeback In a Workplace Near You

September 10, 2018

Back when I was a baby DJ, I always bought a six-pack before my shift. Thought it loosened me up...made me better. Funnier. You know, like when we go out to the bar. "Ooh...look at me, I'm the life of the party! Aren't I hilarious?" 

Uh, no. Turns out, I was wrong. Very wrong.

Yet here we are again, testing mind-altering substances to see if it helps us work better. Beer is one thing, though. LSD? Really? Believe it or not, the practice does have it's advocates. Some have used the drug-taking technique to successfully treat depression and mental illness, so there's that.

I've inadvertently done some case studies myself at other jobs, with other things, but those stories are probably best left for another time.

Or never.
