Unlike ketamine, however, psilocybin has been deemed dangerous by the FDA with “no medical use.” “That really stems back to the Nixon administration and his dislike for hippies,” UW Medicine’s Dr. Tony Back said. “Historians think that’s why it was categorized as a schedule one drug. It’s really quite safe when taken properly.”
