—-The world of psychedelics is a complicated world. Over the past hundreds of years they have been demonized by the western world in a power play to remove the gods of the natives in favor of the power structure hierarchy of Christianity. Over the last 60 years their prohibition has been the rallying cry of various conservative ideological campaigns in the narrative of the “war on drugs” and imprisoning as many people as possible who use drugs outside the legal drugs. In that same time period, food and pharmaceutical industries have flourished spreading the American Standard Diet and also the American Prescription Drug Diet that has largely been responsible for making people sick and then addicted and dependent with keeping them sick. Meanwhile, these corporations have seen profits in the billions and created addictions to their food and medicine. Why would we expect them to switch over to the more holistic and alternative, non-addictive, non-reliant based approaches of psychedelics where healing could be much cheaper, less about taking a pill everyday, and more about gaining freedom with one’s health? Nope, those approaches are still deemed illegal with no medicinal value; very convenient for the powers that be I’d say. The fear and negative propaganda that’s been spread about these psychoactive substances represents very little of the story and actually has more to do with keeping politicians and corporations in power vs anything that’s been supported through science and research. There is a generational and paradigm shift occurring regarding the proper placement of psychedelics as a healing agent and medicine relating to matters of stress, anxiety, trauma, addiction, problems with connecting and feeling empathy, thinking outside the box, stimulating your brain, feeling one with the world, being happy, etc. This interview is a more accurate and great summation of what the psychedelic healing world entails and where it is heading.
