Scientists Find A Drug That Will Cure Alcoholism

And the winner is?

LSD

Yep, now instead of avoiding pedestrians while drunk driving, you get to avoid flying hot pink penguins wielding machine guns, decked out in David Bowie “Labyrinth” hair.

Explain that shit to your kids. They’ll be happy you don’t beat them anymore, but super confused when you tell them to stop feeding all the baby dinosaurs in the back yard.

Here’s the article from Aol.com:

“Talk about flashbacks. New research suggests that LSD–a mind-altering drug known to cause recurrent hallucinations–may find new popularity not as a recreational drug but as a treatment for alcoholism.

For a study published in Journal of Psychopharmacology, researchers affiliated with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Harvard University looked at the results of six old studies of LSD that had been largely overlooked when they were first published. The researchers found “evidence for a clear and consistent beneficial effect of LSD for treating alcohol dependency,” according to a written statement released by the journal’s publisher.

The studies were undertaken in the 1960s and 1970s, decades after the 1938 discovery of LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) and at a time when the drug was considered a possible treatment for medical problems including pain and anxiety as well as alcoholism.”

This world just keeps getting more fucked by the day.
