Very pleased to read about a study on psychedelics and religion: Religious leaders get high on magic mushrooms ingredient – for science.
I am not at all surprised that of the lucky people chosen for this study, “So far everyone incredibly values their experience. No one has been confused or upset or regrets doing it.”
I call them lucky because where else can you get medical-grade psilocybin?
If anyone hears of another study like this one, please let me know! I want to join.

A review of the research on combining therapy with the psychoactive component from magic mushrooms has concluded it’s not only a safe and effective way to treat conditions related to anxiety, depression, and addiction, it could be better than many existing forms of treatment.
