Psychedelic Justice: how do we repair the harms of psychedelic prohibition?
We believe people who use psychedelics shouldn’t be vulnerable to criminal punishment—and we want to build a world where legal psychedelics make sense… it’s incumbent upon people who care about psychedelics to work toward ending the criminalization of people who use them outside of medical contexts, while also advocating for psychedelic-assisted therapy research.
This legacy continues today, with thousands of people every year getting handcuffed, arrested, branded for life as criminals, and serving time behind bars simply for using or possessing a psychedelic substance. These people are more likely to be young, non-white, and socioeconomically marginalized than most other people who use psychedelics.
