Here is a collection of reviews, articles and interviews regarding my work.
"Turn on, tune in, drop by the office "
The Economist's 1843 Cultural Magazine
Dr. James Fadiman's comments: "This is about as mainstream a publication as one can imagine, and for the cover story to be a sober and not at all sensationalistic article on personal use of psychedelics suggests how much more acceptable psychedelics have become."

Dr. James Fadiman's comments: "A different kind of article musing on what approaches might make psychedelics most acceptable."
"Creative Juice: How LSD Became the Go-to Drug of the Smartest Guy in the Room"
June 21, 2017
Dr. James Fadiman's comments: "An article not unlike others recently posted. What is interesting is where it is posted and the description of their sample microdose person."
"Can Micro-Dosing Hallucinogens Cure Mental Illness?"
The Adelaide Review
May 30, 2017
Dr. James Fadiman's comments: "Delightful prose, mostly true, and with the obvious caveat that taking too much is not a good idea. Well-done study done in Australia being presented at hard science conference next week, clinical studies starting in US and England.
Our study with 1500 people who start microdosing and check in every day for a month also catches people who do not do well. People with anxiety do poorly and people who are color-blind find even a microdose visually uncomfortable. Thank you Dr. Paterson for so adroitly bringing your readers up to date."

April 10, 2017
Dr. James Fadiman's comments: "This is a news piece showing three people in England who microdose and are not hip or special. The 'expert' is not very useful.
Why I think it is worth posting is to show how deeply into mainstream culture microdosing has a gone.
Within 36 hours of it posing as a news item with link to a video, it had 930,000 hits.
