One of the, if not THE, most important fields of scientific research right now. Not only because hundreds of millions depressed people are chewing anti-depressants, but because the psychedelic experience is central to understanding our humanness, and that the lack of that understanding is the root cause of most of our problems. There is a war on our consciousness and we have been robbed of the tools to protect ourselves. "But since the early 1990s, a smattering of scientists, researchers and drug policy reformers working at a handful of institutions – mostly in the UK and the U.S., but also in Brazil and the Netherlands – have been researching potential psychiatric applications for psychedelics. They say compounds like psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms), LSD, MDMA (ecstasy), and ketamine could – under strict medical supervision, and subject to further clinical trials – revolutionize how we understand and deal with mental health conditions. With depression as the leading cause of disability worldwide (WHO), and one-third of sufferers resistant to common medications, psychedelics seem to offer an unconventional source of hope." ‘The biggest impact the ‘war on drugs’ has had has been the stigmatizing of these substances’ – Natalie Ginsberg https://www.wikitribune.com/story/2018/05/11/health/is-the-war-on-drugs-preventing-a-second-revolution-in-mental-health-treatment/69787/ #PsychedelicResearchMoP #psychedelics #LSD #MDMA #Psilocybin #MagicMushrooms #McKenna
