You're delusional and UK #drugspolicy for past 50 years has been delusional. The harder the enforcement the higher the price goes and the more violent the gangsters are prepared to be. #Prohibition never works, it only makes the problem worse. The solution is legal regulation. twitter.com/pritipatel/sta…

People around the world are learning about the mental health benefits of #psychedelics, but they remain prohibited in most countries. So, where can you actually find legal psychedelics, like #psilocybin or #ayahuasca? 🇺🇸 🇳🇱 🇯🇲 @PSYCSpotlightCSpsychedelicspotlight.com/5-countries-wh…kpQqUwqPqh
In our #MDMA report (beckleyfoundation.org/mdma-report/) we proposed a model for regulation At a new #ecstasy 'shop' in 🇳🇱, visitors can see three potential futures for themselves - a club, store, and pharmacy, and decide their preferences Which would you prefermixmag.net/read/world-fir…op
It absolutely is muted! Back in 08, Amanda Feilding and @ProfDavidNutt made a conscious decision to focus on #psilocybin over #LSD to avoid the cultural baggage that came with acid Now that the taboo is lifting, the Beckley Foundation are focusing on LSD with a range of studies twitter.com/OPEN_fndn/stat…
"The only reason #marijuana was considered so taboo is that without cannabis there aren't enough drug users in the world to have a war on drugs! 4% of the world use #cannabis while about 1% take the other #drugs. You can't justify spending billions on that 1%" - Amanda Feilding

As #psychedelic plant medicines like #ayahuasca re-enter Western culture, researchers must be aware of the colonial history behind these plants and the communities from which they come, to avoid perpetuating both biopiracy and 'noble savage' stereotypes open-foundation.org/ayahuasca-deco…
