Imagine you have a terminal illness.
You hear how a psilocybin session could help you make peace with death so that you can perhaps enjoy your remaining days on Earth.
There’s even a new law in your state called ‘Right to Try’ that gives terminal patients the ability to try experimental or restricted substances.
But then a DEA bureaucrat says no. Sorry. You can’t use psilocybin. Our hands are tied on this.
This has actually happened in Washington State, and now there is a widely supported lawsuit against the DEA.
