Psychedelic drugs will follow pot’s path to legalization

…the old arguments against psychedelics are obsolete, grounded as they were in a fundamental fear of the experience of altered consciousness… indeed, when local municipalities vote to “legalize” [ie, decriminalize, ie, home production, non-commercial grow, gather, gifting, etc.] mushrooms, as several Massachusetts cities (including my own hometown of Cambridge) did in early 2021, they are self-consciously following the pot legalization movement.

It will take time for psychedelics to go from illegal to medical-use-only to broadly legal. But there is overwhelming reason to believe that this process will occur… There’s no doubt that legalization faces challenges from prohibitions put in place during the Nixon and Reagan administrations. But the combination of medicalized research and cultural mainstreaming is potent.
