Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics

Available on Netflix
HAVE A GOOD TRIP: ADVENTURES IN PSYCHEDELICS presents an all-star cast of comedians, musicians, actors, and television hosts sharing their experiences with psychedelic drugs. Sting, Carrie Fisher, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Anthony Bourdain, David Cross, ASAP Rocky, and others discuss moments (often coming-of-age moments) from the good and bad trips they've had while under the influence of LSD or psilocybin mushrooms. These testimonials are interspersed with parodies of the overblown melodrama of the anti-drug after-school specials of the 1970s and 1980s. While the stories are usually funny, especially when discussing potentially horrific moments either real or imagined while under the influence of these drugs, the documentary also discusses the more recent efforts of behavioral scientists and alternative medicine advocates to explore the benefits of psychedelic drugs for those suffering from mental illness or terminally ill patients.
