Lawmakers are beginning to take the first steps towards legalizing psychedelics, which are psychoactive substances that alter perception and mood and affect numerous cognitive processes. According to a research paper published by Eschelman School of Pharmacy, University of North Carolina, psychedelics are generally considered physiologically safe and do not lead to dependence or addiction. The paper, which was published in 2016, discussed the recent and exciting developments in the field which have occurred in clinical research, where several double-blind placebo-controlled phase 2 studies of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy in patients with cancer-related psychosocial distress demonstrated unprecedented positive relief of anxiety and depression. Two small pilot studies of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy also have shown positive benefits in treating both alcohol and nicotine addictions. Now, years later, a New York lawmaker introduced a bill to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms by removing the main active ingredient from the state’s list of controlled substances. “Psilocybin is a naturally occurring chemical compound produced by certain species of mushroom,” the New York legislation states.

The path that psychedelics are taking to looser regulation is reminiscent to that of cannabis. Over the past several years, the cannabis industry has reached several milestones to almost completely redefine itself. Now, medical cannabis is predominantly being used to alleviate symptoms associated with afflictions such as chronic pain, cancer, and epilepsy. The positive data has even led many U.S. states to legalize medical cannabis. And as of 2019, there were 33 states and the District of Columbia that have already moved to legalize medical cannabis. In general, the U.S. was one of the earliest adopters of medical cannabis when California first legalized its medical use in 1996. Since then, a number of countries such Australia, Colombia, Germany, France, Spain, Thailand, and South Korea have all been influenced by the data and moved to legalize medical cannabis.
