I would avoid using recreational drugs to awaken psychic powers. You're already wired for psychic abilities. The goal is to get your thinking, conscious mind and your ego out of the way so that you can access and make sense of the psychic information you're already getting.
Drugs can dull or otherwise move your conscious mind out of the way - but you can achieve this without using them (albeit with more work). They can also cause you to hallucinate, which isn't psychic ability.
