A day in the life of a consultant psychiatrist and psychedelic drug researcher

I work with children whom have used drugs before incarceration to have fun. I also work in an adult addictions service with people whose drug use is mistaken for the cause of their problems. My patients are simply self-medicating. Nevertheless, I give them my drugs and help them off theirs.
