  1. Because despite the fact that LSD can show someone the reality from a different angle and suggest some fresh creative ideas, it is likely that a considerable part of the Russian population will most likely just go on a bad trip and will not understand what to do with the experience (at best). Although on the other hand, this drug is not very popular among the average junkies who use everything in a row, just a pearl, because it does not guarantee a 100% high from taking, besides, there is always a risk of going through very unpleasant hallucinations and being left alone with their subconscious (and many people are afraid of this). IMHO, if LSD was legalized, then it would be reasonable to distribute it in limited circles and such an experience would probably be beneficial in most cases (Timothy Leary would also approve this).
    But getting an unlimited and completely uncontrolled amount of legal LSD into the masses would lead to riots in society, as it already did in the days of the hippies, so no one will allow this to happen now.

  2. After its discovery, LSD became very interesting to scientists in America and clinical studies were conducted, as a result of which it was found that LSD affects the brain by changing the consciousness of a person, or as they like to say – expanding it. It turned out that scientists under the influence of drugs are able to solve complex problems much faster than when sober. However, after it was discovered that some people have bad trips that lead to the most terrible consequences, the drug was banned and all tests were stopped. About 30 years old. And only relatively recently, testing resumed. I think that until the effects of the drug on the brain and the causes of bad trips are fully understood, the drug is unlikely to be legalized even as a drug.

  3. I will give one devastating example of the impact of LSD on the creative personality. Syd Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd, became addicted to this drug and turned into a vegetable. World fame to the group came after his departure.

  4. Although LSD is not known to cause any addiction , and the effect of the drug itself varies greatly, it is still not legalized for one simple reason: it causes a strong psychedelic effect .

    In other words, a person cannot be in an adequate state and soberly analyze the situation in which he finds himself ; sometimes LSD causes a feeling of “different reality” : a person who has taken LSD is not able to distinguish which sensations arise from the drug and which are real. For example, a person on LSD may step out of a window to “take a closer look” at the earth. He may decide to “watch the sunset” while blissfully unaware of what is standing in the middle of a heavily trafficked roadway.

    There are also known sharp attacks of uncontrolled aggression during the action of the drug ,and this certainly does not lead to good.

    So, in short, in Russia, LSD, like any other drug, is not legalized so that under the influence of this substance a person does not harm himself or others.
