How California's tech entrepreneurs are turning to LSD for inspiration. Ed Butler speaks to George Burke, a Silicon Valley worker who takes small doses of the drug to help him work more productively - a practice called microdosing. He hears from Professor David Nutt at Imperial College London - one of the few people doing scientific research into LSD.
