Could psychedelic drugs help keep ex-inmates out of jail?

A UBC study shows that psychedelic drugs like LSD might help reduce domestic violence among men with substance abuse problems, reports Motherboard.

The study found that 42 per cent of U.S. inmates who hadn’t taken psychedelic drugs before incarceration were arrested within six years of their release for domestic battery–compared to 27 per cent of those who had taken psychedelics, according to lead author and UBC psychology professor Zachary Walsh.
