Is broader access to psilocybin… on the horizon?
There is a growing belief that whatever Canada decides will have a direct impact on the U.S. and this country’s psilocybin legalization efforts.
The challenge also noted a precedent to change how the government could work with psilocybin by citing two landmark cannabis cases, where Canadian courts ruled that the absolute prohibition of cannabis by the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) is wrong: R v. Parker in 2000 and R. v. Smith 2015 in the Supreme Court of Canada… “Money talks. I think if they open an individualized medical program, so much money is going to come up to Canada. And that money will push for a lot more,” says Marc Goldgrub, a Toronto-based lawyer with Green Economy Law said. From there, the pressure would be on to the U.S. to move forward with its own versions of legalization to stem an outflow of cash and talent to Canada, he predicted. “We’re already seeing that money here,” he said. “I’m already getting calls from Americans who want to get involved.”
