How it changed my mind

While reading Micheal Pollan’s How To Change your Mind I was particularly interested in a section involving Hollywood and LSD therapists in the late 1950’s.

The offices of Oscar Janiger, Betty Eisner and Sidney Cohen who in the late fifties administered guided LSD trips for $500 a pop to such luminaries as Jack Nicholson, Anais Nin, Andre Previn, James Coburn, Stanley Kubrick and Cary Grant.
Grant’s session affected him so greatly that gave an extensive interview to gossip columnist Joe Hyams extolling the benefits of LSD therapy.
Never doubting the veracity of Mr Pollan, I was doubly curious about the mention of Stanley Kubrick who repeatedly says he never used drugs and specifically never tried LSD?
