Protestors target the DEA in support of psilocybin for terminally ill patients
Peaceful civil disobedience, a longstanding American tradition, will take place at the doorstep of the Drug Enforcement Administration headquarters in Arlington, Virginia… where activists say they will block entrances to the building to draw attention to the right of terminally ill cancer patients to use psilocybin.
…prepared to commit an act of peaceful civil disobedience in support of medicinal psilocybin palliative care because “blocking DEA entrances [will serve] to unblock their obstruction of this healing therapy for end-of-life suffering.” Psilocybin, also known as “magic mushrooms” in its fungal form, is considered an eligible medicine under the “Right to Try” act because it has completed an FDA-approved Phase 1 clinical trial and met the other criteria of the law… The FDA controls drug approval. Can states legally do this? Yes. The U.S. Constitution provides a floor of protection for individual rights, not a ceiling… legal reasoning behind the original state Right to Try laws, which helped patients across the country even before Right to Try became federal law.
