Over the past 40 years, author Don Lattin has been writing about the beneficial uses of psychedelic drugs. In his new book, "Changing Our Minds: Psychedelic Sacraments and the New Psychotherapy," the former San Francisco Chronicle religion writer shares stories of neuroscientists, volunteer research subjects and others searching for safe uses of psychedelics. He also recounts his own search for an alternative treatment for depression, which took him from Switzerland to a South American jungle.
