Peyote in the United States: Prisoner of war as the war wanes

While it’s true that peyote, like cannabis, was politically packaged as a sheep’s in wolfs clothing in the late 1960’s to ensure its classification in Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), reversing that original CSA classification is a more difficult task for peyote than cannabis.

The 2 principal reasons for this include: 1) Cannabis is much better known than peyote in mainstream society is far more widely used 2) The potential cannabis market is huge compared to the potential market for peyote 3) there is still a great deal of ignorance and fear that is centered on the groups of drugs characterized as “hallucinogens”.
