Can psychedelics help you find God? Bill Richards thinks so, though he would say it differently: “The Divine certainly had contact with me.” Bill is a unique figure in the study of psychedelics — a clinical psychologist at Johns Hopkins University who’s also a scholar of religion. He’s one of only a handful of scholars who studied psychedelics back in the 1960s, when they were legal, and still does today.
