Is LSD Addiction Hereditary?
The use of LSD, as is the case with most drugs, is generally more a product of environmental factors than it is the consequence of inherited tendencies. However, researchers have identified a link between an individual’s genes and the risk of addiction and substance abuse. Individuals with a family history of addiction are more likely to develop a substance addiction themselves.
LSD seems to be among those drugs with the least risk of inherited abusive behavior. Hallucinogen abuse, in general, seems to have a heritability rate only about half that of the riskiest drugs, which include opioids and cocaine.
