Accounting for Microdosing Classic Psychedelics Blake Beaton, Heith Copes, Megan Webb, Andy Hochstetler, and Peter S. Hendricks Journal of Drug Issues, 2019, 1–12 Doi : 10.1177/0022042619871008   Abstract Microdosing classic psychedelics (e.g., LSD [lysergic acid diethylamide] and psilocybin) is the practice of taking small amounts of these substances to bring about various positive life changes.

Accordingly, we use the sociology of accounts as a theoretical framework to explore the ways that those who microdose excuse or justify their practice. Using data from semistructured interviews with 30 people who had microdosed, [...]
