Cannabis legalization in the U.S was one of the most hotly contested topics in recent years, and it looks like the topic has encouraged the exploration of other drugs that have a lot of potential, particularly psychedelics.
Medical research so far favors psychedelics use for medical purposes. For example, MDMA, a famous psychedelic, can be an effective therapy for individuals who suffer from emotional distress and mental health illnesses such as PTSD. Some states have already approved the use of psychedelics for medical use, which means that it is a budding industry following in the cannabis industry’s footsteps.
Will psychedelics be easily accessible?
Various questions arise as far as psychedelics are concerned. Will they be easily accessible to people who need them for medicinal use, and where can people purchase them? The main aim of legalizing psychedelics for therapeutic use is that people who need them can access their medicinal properties.
The best approach to those questions is first to spread information about the benefits they offer. Another critical aspect of ensuring the psychedelics industry is on the right track is involving medical research teams to evaluate the pros and cons involved.
Classification status is also a vital part of the accessibility narrative. Psychedelics are still considered illegal and classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which means it is considered more dangerous than cocaine despite the positive benefits. Spreading knowledge about those positive benefits and holding campaigns that will help support the decriminalization agenda.
The cannabis industry’s growth in the past few years took a similar path, which means that the same can also apply to psychedelics. Once the information about psychedelics starts spreading, it will pave the way for outlets where people can easily access psychedelics. Regulatory approval will also require the proper regulatory guidelines to support safe use.
