Abstract

Psychonaut neurodiversity is the idea that there are people who live their best life through the use of psychedelic substances. This project explores this idea by drawing on my personal experience with western medicine and psychedelics, as well as interviews with drug policy and education reform advocates in Australia. The absurdity of current drug policy and education with respect to LSD is brought into the light. In doing so, it brings into question the rationale behind all drug policy and education.
