The new documentary Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics, features the former Police frontman, Sarah Silverman, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Bourdain, Ben Stiller, and many other creative people talking about their good, bad, and ugly experiences with drugs such as LSD, magic mushrooms, peyote, and MDMA.
The film is hosted by Nick Offerman and includes commentary by UCLA's Charles Grob, one of the world's leading experts on growing efforts to use hallucinogens in therapeutic settings.
