Will PTSD patients get legal mushrooms and MDMA before marijuana?

Kevin Saunders, running for Mayor of Marina, California, has proposed a ballot measure that would decriminalize psilocybin for adults over 21-years-old. Saunders claimed the mushrooms helped him kick his heroin addiction 15 years ago. At least 365,880 verified signatures in support of the measure would need to be collected before it could appear on California’s 2018 ballot. “I think we’re seeing something that could literally heal our brothers and sisters,” Saunders said. “We’re talking about real cutting-edge stuff.”

While it is extremely encouraging that the federal government would turn a blind eye to the Controlled Substances Act and decades of failed War on Drugs propaganda to expedite the healing of a massive population of suffering Americans, why stop with the psychedelics? What, besides contributions from industries like Big Alcohol, Tobacco, and Pharma, would be stopping the FDA from affording cannabis the same chance as psilocybin and MDMA to prove its efficacy in healing the sick?
