Bipartisan congressional group calls for psilocybin access

…patients’ call for medical access only bolsters the potion of the lawmakers making the push, regardless of whether the wider population understands the efficacy of psychedelic medicine.  The same thing was seen with cannabis. Its scope of value was seen as very narrow in a medical setting at first. But the years would prove it a very viable treatment for many conditions besides cancer, AIDS, and glaucoma…

Six lawmakers are calling on the Drug Enforcement Administration to lift roadblocks to providing terminally ill patients access to psychedelic medicine… The letter was signed by U.S. Representatives Earl Blumenauer (OR) Don Bacon (WI), Rashida Tlaib (MI), Andy Biggs (WI), Sheila Jackson Lee (TX), Dean Philips (MN), and Madeleine Dean (PA). Blumenauer, who also co-chairs The Cannabis Caucus, led the effort. “Research demonstrates that psilocybin provides immediate, substantial, and sustained relief from debilitating anxiety and depression in individuals with terminal illnesses,” the lawmakers told DEA Administrator Anne Milgram in the letter.
