Most people have probably heard the story of a man jumping out of a window on psychedelics, but what you may not have heard is this has been the complete justification for making them illegal.
Anyone dying on any substance is obviously not a great thing, but when you look at legal drugs like alcohol, tobacco and even the drugs which are supposed to promote good health like pharmaceuticals, the death tolls and damage they cause far outweigh any damage you will have ever seen from the use of psychedelics.
Off the back of this story any known drug to cause hallucinations where made schedule 1 substances and put into the same category as heroin and classing it as more dangerous than crack cocaine.
No studies or medical research was done to prove their danger and all medical trails that where proving it to have mental health benefits where halted.
In this short video Terrance McKenna gives us the real reason psychedelics became illegal, why as a result of these laws “we are all criminals” and what can be done to change the stigma attached to the medicinal use of psychedelics.
