Psychedelic drugs for the dying?
An article in the NY Times ("How Psychedelic Drugs Can Help Patients Face Death") tells about researchers who give people who are expected to die within a short time and are afraid of dying psychedelics like MDMA (Ecstacy) and psilocybin with good results. However, it should be noticed that they have extensive protocols like having the people bring special attributes like photos of relatives. The widespread recreational use of such drugs usually doesn't have much beneficial effect.
