I've recently become quite fascinated with psychedelics and the profound way in which they impact the human experience and cause you to question the reality you live in. They are wonderful tools for treating depression, PTSD, anxiety, addiction, and other mental issues. They triangulate the human experience adding completely new dimensions that provide you with a much deeper, richer understanding of consciousness. Like anything positive, they can always become a bad thing if abused (no different than sugar or video games). However, at the end of the day, the benefits far outweigh the detriments. So why the hell are these substances still illegal in most states? It's complete insanity. Cannabis isn't generally labeled as a psychedelic but the same goes for it as well. Why the hell does our government throw people in jail for wanting to feel chill on the weekend? It's like punishing people for going to the movies. Complete and utter insanity. Are psychedelics like shrooms, LSD, DMT, etc. illegal for the same reason(s)? Thoughts?
