In his paper, the Marine officer suggested that Marine units that need the psychological and mental edge partake in controlled microdosing, noting that the practice is known to “significantly heighten alertness, creativity, and problem solving,” and has been used by “scientists, Silicon Valley executives, biologists, biohackers, and others.”
“Like most hallucinogens, LSD mimics the effects of serotonin (a mood regulator),” Major Albayarak wrote.
Furthermore, the use of drugs such as MDMA can be used to treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
For the Major, however, the act of microdosing is all about giving the American warrior the edge -particularly when it comes to interpreting intel- without compromising discipline and good order.
“Though the idea is radical, it must be understood that this is neither a sideways attempt to allow Marines to ingest illicit substances nor to be mistaken as a half-baked attempt to recreate previously failed paranormal experiments,” he wrote.
Individuals such as late Apple CEO Steve Jobs were known for taking doses of LSD, with the tech legend claiming that it helped him immensely.
“Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life,” Jobs said. “LSD shows you that there’s another side to the coin.”
